My husband just turned 50 in Aug. He had heart surg.1995,Back surg. 1997.He is on R and N insulin twice aday.Heart and Blood pressure pill aday. Oxycodin 4 times aday,Xanax 3 aday,Celexa 1 aday.Every three to four months they keep raising his oxycodin to 1 more. His mental stage is not here he is confused all of the time.Which I understand why. He does not go any place only when I take him to doctor, then it sets him back three to four days.I am a nervous wreck all of the time.I work at a hospital and scared to really leave him during the day.They mentioned pain-management to him. But, he feels that won't do any good. He tells me when he is tired of all this he will fix himself and end it.His family and older adult children won't call or come around. I feel they don't want to face what is happening to him. I am the only one here for him. I go to work, store Drug store, take him to the doctor.He doesn't no day from night most of the time.He has upper and lower severe polyneruopathy. Any ideas what I can do but leave it up to the Lord,I am afraid one day I will come home and h overdosed. He sometimes forgets if he took his insulin or what pills he has taken.
