    It has ruined my life since the accident I can't do anything I am disabled and I can't work I get disability because it took everything away from me. We lost our home because of this. I had SI joint fusion surgery that my attorney sent me to and now I have a loose screw that has to be fixed and the surgery didn't help anyway. I am just tired of being miserable and having no life with my husband.

    Am completely depressed about this. It started as soon as I retired 4 years ago. Had to have double CABG before my laminectomy. After all that, I am still in severe pain. I don't want to take NORCO as it makes me sick when I go off them.
