... bulging disc in his lower lumbar and a degenerative issue with his spine. at first he was prescribed a med called tramacet that helped him manage his pain. after a few months he was taken off work on put on long term disability. following his Dr.'s orders he had an injection done later that year to help with inflammation thus helping with his pain. unfortunately for him he experienced a negative reaction to the injection and was off his feet for about 6 months. following all this he no longer felt relief taking the tramacet and was prescribed morphine. what a disaster that was, he could not function on that medication and was a walking zombie, tripping over his own feet when walking and walking into things. at that time i said i don't think this medication is right for you, you need to be able to live a life and function. it wasn't long after that the Dr.'s gave him oxycodone which seemed to be better for him. However he continued to do nothing to strengthening himself and being present in our marriage all he keeps saying is he needs to rest. Is 2 years of rest enough? Its been 2 years since this all began and he’s not showing any progress, he doesn’t work for obvious reasons and have any social life. Its like he’s put up a big wall around him and won’t even let me in. there’s zero affection or intimacy in the marriage and when I attempt to express my concerns about him abusing his medication he gets upset and says he’s doing exactly what the Dr.’s tell him and maybe I just can’t cope with his condition. But I feel like after 2 years there should be some kind of progress I don’t understand how he can be happy staying at home day after day, reading, watching movies and playing video games. Am I totally out of line here? I feel so alone and defeated I don’t know what to do…
