Will get on tomorrow and put in three vocabulary words. I am doing better on pain management. There may little else that can be done with degenerative arthritis of the spine... I will get on journals tomorrow too I hope. Have a good evening everyone...

My mom is angry I'm on pain management. She and her sister and her sister's husband are JUDGMENTAL about anyone on meds. She also said I only go to the ER for pain, I went there when my tendon pulled a few months ago in my leg (probably related to the degenerating spine), and they gave me crutches and NO pain meds and it was afternoon, (she said I only go there at night), I couldn't walk for a few days without seriously limping then or without the crutches for about a day. She forgot about that quickly. She has said no one needs to be on pain management but terminally ill people. Guess what - I've had arthritis almost thirty years. I didn't get it at age seventy and am now one hundred and bedridden. She was an RN, but sometimes has no clue and is not very bright when it comes to pain issues obviously. There was NO way last Sunday morning or the other time I went for this I could manage. The last time my back was LOCKED up. I have to worry now about other serious problems with my back now she has no clue about as nerves can stop working because the arthritis may have caused such damage. I am going to start going to go to church every week now as there is nowhere else to turn to get help so I don't end up in a wheelchair. I don't think they can heal a lower spine that is deteriorating since the nerves are all there... Sorry to be griping but my mother was very nasty to me this morning. At this point the pain is manageable but I probably would be bedbound without the pain meds, everything would lock up in my back. I've had this almost THIRTY years with bad flare-ups off and on and now it's at its worst, not just something new... I will do vocabulary words later...
