    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi There ,
    WEll,I am sorry that I did not see this before tonight ,I would have answered you right away !
    I don 't know how to do the chat thing but I can talk by this if you want !!!!
    I am guessing by what you said that you have a lot of pain and you have become addicted to your meds!
    Well your not alone ! I am a recovering pill addict and now I have to take pain meds because of tumors on my spine ,amoung many other things !

    I am also in pain and alone and live in the middle of no where I have to get friends to take of a day of work to drive me 400 miles round trip for injections this far hasn't done any good as soon as the epidural wears off I am back in pain this time worse then it was before. I had to bite on a cloth during the injection it was so painful so I haven't made my next appointment. Really don't know what to do at this time. I take 30mg of morphine 3 times a day and have Lortab 7.5 for breakthrough pain . Any suggestions would be appreciated
