Hi guys. I appologize for the bitch fest, but man I could use some outside support. My family and doctors are driving me nuts. Here the story. Mom is concerned because of the narcotics I am on. I gave her my meds, and let her despence them for me to show that i am not taking more than I need. I got upset with her though, because I feel like no one is trusting me, no one believes my pain, and is treating me like a drug addict. then, all i hear is "you need to do your stretches, pills arent always going to help." I realize this, but the meds have started helping me fuction day to day. I'm only 23 years old, so I understand I am young to be on meds for this, but if they help me live my life, so be it. Then, I go to the dr. the other day at my college's "health center" my dr. was gone, so I had to see a different one. he comes in the room and starts telling me he thinks I have a problem etc. etc. I don't know what to do anymore. I am letting my mom control my meds, I am getting my meds every friday instead of once a month. I just feel like giving up. Id rather be in pain than viewed as a liar or a drug addict. ugh, im just really frustrated. advice would be great.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
