Re: I just need to ask and say this

I just LOVE LIFE.. I have one adult son and a spouse. I garden (with son's help) and volunteer at local animal shelter when I can. I also work full time at a desk job but have note on file for frequent breaks and stretch breaks. I am lucky in that so far medication keeps the worse of my pain at bay. i know I will never go below a 3-4 on scale, but I can live with that. As I get older, my pain does get worse and my medication has been increased 4 times over the last 6 years. I take a Long acting pain med twice a day plus Norco 10 mg up to 3 times for break thru pain. I make sure I take my LA twice a day without fail. Somedays I need all 3 BT pills, others i don't. but there are days when I need an extra dose so it evens out
