My husband was in a serious motorcycle accident 7 years ago, broke (in order from top to bottom) his neck, collar bone, shoulder, elbow, low back, pelvis, knee, leg, great toe. Ok 18 surgeries later he walks fine, he is still in pain in the low back, he is severely depressed and addicted to pain meds. He OD's every couple of weeks, gets stupid, passes out, breaks things, says stupid ****, calls friends and relative and cries, does stuff that causes him more pain (picking up 4X4 posts for example), living with him is like have a troubled 14 year old around. I'm at the end of dealing with this - if he does not apply himself to getting some help, I'm done, 27 years of marriage down the tubes. He has no income, he can't drive, his whole life revolves around "Oh, I hurt so I can't do anything" He sits on the couch, smoke cigs and cries about what he has become. His whole life (and mine) revolve around his pills, his doctors, his appointments, his sad, sad, sad life. He has pain meds and anti-depressant reactions that are just unreal, morphine makes him hyper-active, anti-depressants make him violent, I'm so done with all of this. He is seriously ADHD - but to what extent the Norco is responsible, I don't know. I have threatened the doctors with a law suit if they give him more soma. He can't remember anything for more than a few minutes. He has fallen down this well and I'm being pulled in with him. This has to end now. I'm looking for the answer to his depression. His mother put him on Rittlin as a kid and he was on it until he was 16. I seriously think if I could get a doctor to look at what it really is, he could get on something like adaril and maybe it would kick him out of this rut. I don't know, I'm waiting to be referred to a real pain management clinic. Will they help or will they just write him a script for more norco and will have to tell them no soma, no oxy, no mscontin and all that crap? I think he could seriously use a few sessions with a nice stern shrink but it all lays within himself. I work full time and thank God, I have good health care insurance, but I do not have anything going on for Mental health - which he needs badly. I'm broke - all this crap has me in debt up to my ears and I'm 57 years old. He is 49. Help!! This is going to change. I will have to be a ***** about it, but I'm not living this way anymore. Any suggestions?
