Is Pain Medication Ruining My Life-HELP



  • Thank you for the words that have true meaning. I am going to try to quit grieving and move on. It's time and I have hurt enough in many ways.

    I look up to you and your long career of service, you have so much to be proud of and I'm glad you are my friend.

  • Thanks Al,

    You're going to have times where you miss your prior "normal" life, and that is normal. Just like when we lose a family member or close friend, we go through grieving, sadness, maybe even anger. Our lives are no different. Well, actually a little different, as inside we are still us, just in a new chapter in our book of life is all.

    I know I have more procedures and surgeries in my future. Not happy about it, but at the same time, knowing is power, so I give myself a break and go with it. I just live my life in a different way than I originally pictured in my youth. I let myself grieve and am now in my new chapter.

    Celebrate your life's accomplishments, and I think you will feel a bit better Al. I know it's not easy, but you're a strong man, and I have faith based on what I've seen of your posts. *HUGZ*

    Glad to have you as a friend as well!! :)
