I'm new here, just joined today... I've been dealing with chronic pain for the last three years due to DDD, bulging/herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica and severe nerve pain. I'm a wife and mother of two teenagers... I miss being an active member of my family. I went from working full time, keeping a house clean and organized and active in my kids' lives to being a permanent fixture on my bed, zombified by pain medications. I'm wondering if anyone else has been in my shoes and if there are any suggestions that would help pull me out of this funk? My family and friends are supportive, but no one really seems to "get it". Thank you.
