Chronic Pain is my Shadow

I am in pain all the time. Docs have given me Tylenol and Gabapentin but it doesn’t help much. Not moving at all works best, but that’s a lousy solution as it actually makes thinks worse and I’ve become as weak as a new kitten. I’ve decided I’m just going to join the world again and tolerate the pain as best I can. It isn’t going away, and I sure don’t want to go down to opioidroad, and dadgum it, I’m still here and I refuse to give up.
As a physician and caregiver to my husband who suffered from dementia, I thought I knew how to get care for him without hurting myself, physically, emotionally and financially. I was wrong on all three counts. To help others learn from my experience, I have written a book. "Navigating the Minefield that is Dementia with your Loved One" It is the story of great love, great loss and great hope for the future. I write in lay terms to help you understand dementia and all the latest research. It is also manual on how to get the help you need. Available on Amazon
