i am in chronic pain due to spine and nerve damageand on 180mg morphine daily. sometimes this helps bring the pain to a manageable level but rarely relieves it down past level 5. of course the morphine gives me fog head, makes me forgetful and sometimes sick.driving is a rare thing and i have a few good hours late am,early afternoon. i also take care of my 89 yr old mom who has altzheimers-she is my only reason for getting out of bed.im on soc sec disability and medicare so like a lot of people having money to hire help is rare ands of course i think the isolation is the killer.i moved from jersey to a rural area of florida because my family said they needed to help me and mom. they helped themselves to bank accounts and left us isolated.after 3 yrs i can get out of bed most every day and just handle the pain-sometimes i do need to lay most of the day.this kind of lifestyle is enough to send anyone over the edge into anxiety/panic attacks and depression.nights are the worst sooo i am looking for people who have-and can tell me how to get-the headphones so i can talk to people over the computer. i know this will help keep at bay those nights/sometimes days/ whenlonliness and isolation bring on depression and anxiety/panic attacks.anybody know about this kind of thing. thanks in advance and god bless

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
