Hello there. I am new to the group. Im really glad I found this support group. I have been dealing with ED now for 11 years. I am married with 3 wonderful children. I was in recovery for a while but keep relapsing. I have been IP 4 times and residential once. We recently moved from Charlotte NC to Oklahoma to be closer to hubby's family. Where we are living now there are no support groups no doctors that deal with eating disorders. NOTHING. You have to drive 2 1/2 hours away for any treatment. Its so hard cause I just cant drop everything and take a drive for an apt. I am really home sick. I dont know anyone here and there isnt anything to do in this small town to meet anyone. I am focusing more on ED now then I have ever. I am so tired of living like this but so scared to actually feel. I look at my husband and my kids and how this is affecting them and it hurts me so bad. I wish I could just turn it off like a light but I cant. I dont know how to talk to my kids about ED but I know I need to. We have always told them I was on a busniess trip or visiting family the times I was gone. Now Im not working and I stay home. Should they know or should I just pretent they are in the dark when they really know something is going on but not sure what it is. My husband is supportive. He doesnt know much about the disorder but helps with what he can. There are times when he just blows up about it cause he is so scared and dpesnt know what to do and there are times where he doesnt say anything at all. Well Im going on and on. I hope to meet other people in the same boat and find the support I need. Thanks. :)

I have my maxed amount of epidural shots of my cervical DDD....(and no one cares about my lumbar DDD)..... I've done physical therapy, muscle relaxers, Amitriptyline, Nortryptiline, desipramine.....narcotics... So I decided to go to a spine specialist and they have me on Gabapentin. Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
