There are times in your life where you are thankful for the kindness of strangers and friends.
One day at a time. One step at a time. Do what you can, everything else will wait.
Dealing with chronic pain is challenging in itself. Dealing with the side affects of medication is frustrating. Its like going from the fry pan to the fire. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
You deal with each issue as best as you can. Knowing that there are folks who do care about you, and will be there for you through it all gives comfort.
I cannot give you any advice than what I have in the past. Just know that you are surrounded by friends and strangers who are sending you their love and encouragement.
