I went to see my pain consultant today. After much discussion he said that there was no further medication for me to go on. I'm in constant pain and he's said that I've tried everything that's currently on the market for me to try. I feel at a total loss as how to carry on. I'm such severe pain I frequently don't want to live anymore. My life has become so limited, I have to have carers help with my personal care twice a day, I walk with a stick, I use a mobility scooter. And I'm 23. I can hardly get any relief from the pain and most of my days are spent in bed or on the sofa. I feel totally isolated because I've lost most of my friends who are a similar age because they don't quite understand. I can't keep living like this but I have no idea how to carry on living with this condition. I can't work at the moment and pretty much all my hobbies have had to go the wayside. I get horrible looks from people and talked down to as if I'm a child by people who don't know me. My self esteem has really dropped and I don't know what do to pick it up. I just don't know how to carry on from here. I don't know how to manage my life anymore. Help!!
