I have times I can't get out of bed , I don't sleep good because I'm in pain. I went from a shower everyday to one every other day. I can't spend time with my grandkids because I'm limited. My back hurts so bad I can't pick them up anymore. I have to have someone carry my water I buy from the store. My life has changed in the last 6 years and I can tell it's not getting better. My liver is bad so I can't take a lot of medication.
