Wow, this is the craziest thing. This is exactly my situation. I felt so darn alone. I was thinking of finding somewhere to go because I was afraid on one of my darker days I would do something terrible. But then I think of how selfish that would be to my kids. We are very close and it would be awful. Despair is the word. Like everyone, after 6 surgeries in one year I too am on a list of narcotics,which I hate but sadly, need to have. I am starting to taper now. I used to be the life of the party. Now I am a lump on a log. I had everything, now nothing. I am 52 and starting all over. No one understands which makes it worse. Now this week the "future" of my case will be decided by my AME dr. I am literally waiting on baited breath as one number, one nu,bet ( sort of) is going to decide whether I will be hopeful or if it is bad I am scared to death of the depression. As sad as it is, it is so nice to know I am not alone, because that is how I feel. My friends call and I don't even want to talk because the same questions " how is your knee? Are you back at work" ypu are not having another surgery are you" what,s new? Yadda, yadda. I hate to talk to people and be a Debby downer. No one needs to hear my stories. Nothing has changed. Sorry for venting and sorry for tos, I am not good at typing on my iPad! Thanks for listening!!!

prolonged exposure to pain and injury almost forces the body/mind into a depressive state.
You need professional help. it's not something to let go or try to pull out of by yourself.
have your doctor make a referral for counseling asap.

1171 is right depression is a killer that gets into your brain and destroys it, and the narcs don't help. My Dr and I decided to take me off the fent patch, I like more control with my meds I don't want meds in my body that doesn't need to be there so we are tapering me of. If you don't have a good relationship with your Dr it makes it so much harder to get well. I am lucky as my Dr has been my family Dr for years and he took over my pain control after my surgery and settlement. He also wrote all the letters I needed to get SSDI first try. Try and stick with us on the off topics side don't be shy post a joke or your story and jump in we all try and keep up morale that can really dip sometimes. If you want or need prayer ask for it we all will pray for each other.
