hi everyone, Why do I feel so guilty when I need to stay in bed because of my back.I am having a serious flare up and I know that staying in bed with the heating pad and ice is what I need to do, yet I feel so guility.I have been on disability since 1988 and should be used to this, but everytime I have a real serious problem with my back I want to fight it.I am in pain all the time and manage with my pain meds 80mg &20mg of oxycontin x twice a day and norco for breakthrou.I have no children at home so no little ones to take care of.:confused: I just want to cry and run away...thanks for letting me vent........
