Im in my 50's.....female....if it matters. I have had chronic pain since 2004. Right now my doctor is weaning me off hydromorphone. Ok...Im cool with that but how am I suppose to deal with the pain? I have been on the same dosage for years. It took the edge off. I feel that I am not addicted but I may be wrong. I feel as if my doctor treats me like it's all in my head.
I'm divorced, my kids are grown and gone, I am not working but living off a disability pension which started after I got hurt at work. I live alone although I am trying to find a roomate.
Dating is doable but once they see my pain...they disappear. My girlfriends are supportive but their lives of husbands and travel make me feel so very alone.
I would like to connect with people who understand....otherwise I just mighy go crazy.
