Wow. This is huge for you. Thank you for saying that you will not stop fighting. I am still finding ways to advocate for research into nerve pain and how to stop it. “Pain management” sounds fine unless you know how complex it is….the countless prescriptions, many of which don’t work; the doctor visits, specialist visits, side effects of medication–not to mention how it affects the whole family. Jolene I know you have a son as well and I feel for you as we have two kids ourselves. When a six year old can say “chronic pain” it’s not something that can be dealt with quietly. I wish you all the best and PLEASE KEEP WRITING!
Thanks so much for the beautifully written comment. And thank you for your understanding. This is a long row to hoe, and I’m sure you know that.
My son is 10, and he knows no other life. He was so young when all this happened he doesn’t remember a ‘well’ mommy. That makes me sad.
I won’t stop fighting. I can’t. I have a family who loves me and gives me so many reasons to get out of bed each morning…. Just filled 6 prescriptions, and ready to face another month!!
I just wish I had a bitter strength at the moment… But that will come.
How is your husband doing??
Soft hugs and love to you and yours. Xoxo
