Holiday sitting and standing

Hello everyone I Hope your all having happy holidays.
I know how hard it is for us to enjoy all the sitting around the holidays bring. Sitting or standing is very difficult for me I do pretty good for the first 2 hours and then I go downhill. When the pain gets bad I find it is almost impossible to take a deep breath when I do the pain is so bad it takes my breath away. So I am still struggling with the shakes my body starts shaking in my chest and goes down my arms and to my hands I try to hide my pain from my family because I do not want them to feel bad.
My new DR. ordered a MRI for me 6 months ago work comp still has not ok it.
SSD said if I can pick up a coin button a button open a door I am not disabled!
My doctor says I should not drive because I can get a DUI.
I keep asking for help and because people do not see my injury I am turned down.
I live day to day. Nothing in my future looks promising. This coming January will be 18 years since I was injured. I wish everyone here has a miracle happen and you heal. Nobody should have to live like this.

Sorry needed to vent this time of the year sucks!
