So this has been weighing on me the past few days and I want to take a poll and ask a few things to compare my own life.(please bear with me, I'll have a key board tomorrow and the iPad auto correct sometimes randomly)
1. If you are on long term narcotic pain management have you ever had any problems with your family/close friends? Example- stealing or asking for your pain meds?
2. How does your immediate family or thoses closest to you feel when you're in pain or tired? Did you lose anyone when it got bad and you were limited in one way or another..
3. Do people look down on you due to your illness/injury/condition ? Do they "imply" or outright say you're not good enough or less than whole? perhaps that your significant other could do better?
To answer- my mom is atrue addict and I caught her stealing pain meds last thanksgiving so I now. Hide them. She still asks and guilt trips but I have to say no or I suffer. She gets her own 120oxy a month and will blow through and drink of them. She has degenerative disc disease and Wharton's neuroma in her legs/feet.
My husband is supportivebut he had moments where's he's sad or disappointed if I need a day in bed or can't do certain things, he's never mean but it makes me feel bad I can't be super woman.
My In laws openly tell dh he can do better, that he should leave and take ds, they have even offered to pay for the divorce and say I'm an unfit mother. My slut sil even offered to baby sit while he worked so I'd never see my ds..
Does anyone else ever go through any of this?
