Mental Health & Chronic Pain

Loading Feed

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to have a place to go where other people can understand what I'm going through. I have osteoarthritis and have had 5 surgeries on my thumbs and am 6 weeks post-op 2 level cervical disc fusion. My neck "is shot" and so the decision was made to fuse the 2 worst discs.
I also battle MDD and an anxiety disorder. I was also forced to quit my part-time job after 12-1/2 years so I'm kind of struggling. I am 58 years old and will have to find some sort of part-time job eventually, but the thought of it has me shaking like a leaf. I have come to the realization that this chronic pain is here to stay and like I said, I'm struggling.
