    Makes it difficult to live by oneself having to do all the chores in the house & yard. Unable to do some stuff at all. Since I'm on disability money is extremely tight & can't afford food, medicines that might help or new mattress. Moving around is painful & they want to do surgery again rather than keep me on opiod which were helping till new laws went into effect & now they're force tapering us off them.

    It effects life in many aspects. Can never make plans and know your going to do it. End up isolated in the house. Then the depression comes. Im 1 1/2 miles in the woods and away from anything! But I can also go for walks regardless of worrying if anyones going to see me looking like crap. Not many travel out this way. I know PT exercises and am preparing a weight room. Im also opiate dependant.
