As most of my friends who know me here know my husband recently went through triple bypass surgery, he did really well after the surgery and the doctor told him he might have added 20 years to his life which is amazing. Heart disease runs on both sides of his family he's lost so many uncle's to it and his mother and father. But that's not the problem before he was incarcerated he was in a bad car accident and damaged several cervical disc's, he's had 2 surgeries to try and repair the problem but he is in pain everyday, most days he doesn't complain so when he does I know he is really hurting. He called this morning and right away I knew something wasn't right and when I asked him he told me he was in a lot of pain. I hate when he sounds like this and I can't help, just like so many of you must feel when your loved one isn't feeling well. He told me he had spoken to the doctor and they did some xrays and now he has to just wait. Once again the waiting game. I don't want to go behind his back but I'm thinking of calling his counselor and letting him now just how bad he is feeling, I know they hate to give pain medication but there are non-narcortic med's hey could be using. I'm just really worried because if the pain issue isn't treated it could eventually put a strain on his heart and to top it all off he has diabeties too. If you were me would you wait and see how long it takes before they doctor's there address this or should I call and say something, he hates when I do that but I'm really worried. Any advice?

i must say I feel better. I work better, I sleep better. Today I have a tape in my brain that says life IS better sober. It took quite a bit of work on who a I was. I was a cheat a liar and a thief. So I HAD to drink to forget. Today I admit... Yes I’m an alcoholic. Booze is very different when I drink. I know that it’s the first one. I know it’s the thinking, jealousy, and guilt that...
