I try and push myself everyday, as sitting or staying in bed makes me hurt worse. But unending pain does wear on you after awhile. I know I have my family , thank God, and I believe in God, but what else? I take vicodin but still hurt. What gets you through everyday? I tell my dr. I was NOT depressed to beginn with but after dealing with unending pain everyday it does get depressing so she wants to put me on effexor xr. I took it before and it makes me feel a bit better, but doesn't help the pain. Any ideas?
