I Battle Depression
I have had RSD for coming up on 5 yrs. I have a morphine pump for the last I 1 yr or so but I am still trying to get the dosage right. The RSD is in my left knee, leg, hip, back and ribs. I have attempted suicide and have been in a psych hospital for a few months 2 Xmas's ago. I am taking antidepression and antianxiety meds for pts. I have been isolated since my injury as "work friends" instantly disappeared. I can not physically trIvel without immense pain due to hypersensitivity of my left leg, esp knee. I am now isolated to my bed and barely even speak to my husband, who is also injured with a tripple disk fusion which was not successful. I feel very guilty about my injury as I was caring for my husband (and working) and now he has to care for me. I am on crutches and my knee is stuck on a 30% angle requiring constant support.
I am lonely and wish I had a friend who understood and I dont feel I am burdening with my problems.
