It is just relentless, the pain. The only time I feel release is when I sleep, and I can only sleep when I take a ton of medication. The medication makes it hard to wake up, and the returning pain makes it harder. I had to quit my job because of it. My wife is paying the bills by herself, and we are just scraping by. The medical bills don’t help. Not that the doctors did either. Is this kind of pain really worth living through? No one can help me. We’ve tried everything.
