I admit that I have a very low tolerance for pain. However, the last 3 years have been miserable for me. I had a full thickness annular tear L5-S1, bulging L5 disc, and arthritis in my facets. I have had series upon series of prolotherapy (facet blocks) X 3 two weeks apart. I was suppose to have a discography but just found out today that my insurance won't pay for it. I haven't had a "pain free" day in three years. My pain is not debilitating everyday but can be at times. I'm a respiratory therapist at a hospital and work 12 hour grueling shifts...some day's I just want to crawl out to my car. Nothing seems to ease the pain to a tolerable level for very long. Does anyone happen to have the same thing or have any advice for me? My pain management Dr. says that my ligaments are weak. I take Lortab 10/500 when pain is really bad but for obvious reasons I can't work with that in my system so sometimes the pain has built up for hours before I can take it to help. Honestly, I think the lortab just helps me deal with it because the pain doesn't really seem to lesson. I've taken Ultram - zero help. Please help soon. Thank you.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
