Discussions that mention skelaxin

Disabilities board


Do you ever feel that you have to show your pain? Maybe that is the wrong way to put it. Can't think of another way. Today I had to run some errands. Had to get paperwork signed at the Surgeon's office. Picked my son up from school. Stopped for a sandwich. I was thinking that anyone that sees me probably thinks I am fine. I don't limp. I walk a little slow. What do people think? If someone were following me to see if I was really disabled they may think I am fine. Little do they know that I am on Oxycodone, Skelaxin (muscle pain) and Lyrica (nerve pain) in addition to Dextroamphetamine (Narcolepsy). It takes everything I have to just leave the house and drive anywhere. People keep telling me I look good. They assume I feel good. Maybe I am just sensitive because I am waiting for my approval for permanent disability and disability retirement. I found out today my head supervisor at work questioned my ex-supervisor about what kind of pain I was in. I think that was pretty inappropriate but normal for that supervisor. Why not just ask me. The supervisor has known me for 22years. It is stuff like that...............
