My husband is the one suffering with chronic pain. He has had a spinal fusion and needs two more according to his surgeon. He works in a medical lab looking in a microscope a big part of the day. Is there a worse job for neck pain? I have been more than understanding. I have gone with him to Drs appts. and have been his biggest advocate. He currently is seeing pain management but it's just not helping much. Now he's supplementing his pain meds with alcohol. He knows the dangers but he says he can't live with the pain anyway so it's worth the risks. At first this did not affect our marriage but the more he drinks (which is more and more) the meaner and angrier her gets. He's always sorry the next day, but to tell the truth, I'm getting tired of the apologies when I know he's going to do it again in a matter of weeks. I don't have anyone to talk to. Is there someone who can help me help him?
