  • Sounds like you found the rest of us that are suffering like yourself. I my self have not been through near what you have. I do know the loss of a job, loss of friends, depression, uncertain of what the next day was going to bring me. I deal with the pain, have tried different meds, procedures, after a failed back surgery. That loss of sleep is a do you inner for sure. Hopefully you find some new friends, some comfort, and some hope here. I know I did.
