I don't have a life. I'm in constant pain, can't stand or sit for more than 5 mins without having to do the opposite. I can't mop floors or anything of that nature. Suffering since 2000. I can't go anywhere that requires walking any amount of distance. Herniated disc, bulging disc, fibromyalgia, arthritis and depression,anxiety and panic, irregular heartbeat, palpitations. I'm a mess and nobody can help or insurance won't pay. It's crazy.
