I am feeling really depressed and down. My mother in Law visited for the first time and she snooped thru my Rxs and saw that I took morphine extended release and percocet for break thru pain for my 3 spinal fusions I had to have do to nuero skeletal scoliosis. Well she is now begging my husband to leave me and that I am a frug addict because none should ever be on that heavy of pain meds. So she has me pinned as a druggyy and completely blocked me off. She said she was going to buy me this $400 purse and now changed her mind and will not ever visit again because she found out what I need to take just to function. I take 30 mg of morphine and 3 10 mg perceocets for break thru pain. I have never abused or taken more then I was prescribed and I am barely just accepting that this is my new life. That I will always be in some sort of chronic pain. And now my husband is thinking of leaving me because he now instead of believing me and my drs is listening to her. So I was hoping maybe someone could shed some light on how I can explain to her that this is pretty common with chronic pain. Maybe share me what you take and why and what is has done to improve your life. Its making me sick and I am in the middle of getting disability for it right now and I am so stressed because she also said he needed to leave me because I didn't contribute any money. I do give 700 a month and I also take care of my son. He is 9 so I can't work anyways cuz daycare is so expensive but also Its too hard on my back. Please give me any hope and any explanation that I could share with her. She is old fashioned and 75 and thinks a advil will fix everything and only thinks of morhpine as herion. Please help me and share your stories. It has me so depressed and really just wanting to give up on trying anymore. I just barely started to accept that I will forever be changed since my 3 spinal fusions and scoliosis still progressing and losing my whole life over it. So it destroyed me to have the one operson who influences my husband tell him to leave me and that Im damaged good. Im heartsick.
I feel so alone
