After 4 surgeries and years of pain meds I am wanting to stop taking meds. I feel Like I am losing my husband and family because of these meds even though I only take 3 a day.If my husband didn't want me to work at our business until he retires and takes over I think this would be easier to tackle. I am so worried about tolerating the pain without meds but I want my old life back. I am depressed- have gained weight- have constipation and I'm now getting constant lung infections. I am basically a recluse, have trouble concentrating and have no desire to clean. I have been married for 33 years but my husband has no tolerance for drugs and he upsets me by saying I have a physical addiction which I probably do. He says that my pain receptors are off and after I quit he thinks my pain will be less. I am so scared of being in pain but I have no choice. My immune system is so low I'm sick all the time. Any suggestions as to how to make this easier would be appreciated.
