For the last 5 years my husband has suffered from chronic pain from neck surgeries, bulging discs and arthritis pain. He currently takes morphine twice a day, among other medicines. He spends most of the day in bed. He is able to be up for only a couple hours out of a day. The toll it's taken on our marriage is very sad. I feel like a roller coaster of emotions. One day I'm able to cope and the next I'm a mess. We separated for about a month. We are now back together and I just try to take it day by day. I don't know what the future holds and it scares me. I want so much more for my husband. He currently is about 150 pounds overweight. I feel like if he lost weight, he would feel much better. But the pain and the medicine keep him sedentary making weight loss almost impossible.
