FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS I HAVE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE MARRIED A UNBELIEVABLE UNDERSTANDIN WIFE, I WAS A VERY GET IT DONE PERSON, WORKED HARD, AND WAS A GO GETTER, I AM 53 M WITH ACUTE DIABETIC NEUROPATHY AND HAVE LOST MY LIFE PRETTY MUCH TO PAIN, I KNOW MY WIFE MUST FEEL AS YOU DO BECAUSE AS I TELL HER THIS IS NOT WHAT SHE BARGAINED FOR WHEN WE MARRIED, DEPRESSIONS, LOST FEELINGS AND THE PAIN IS SOMETHING ONLY I CAN FEEL, I KNOW SHE FEELS SAD, LOST AT TIMES AND JUST DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO, FRUSTRATION OF MY PAIN SOUNDS JUST LIKE YOUR HUSBANDS, I HAVE TURNED IN TO ANOTHER PERSON AND WITHOUT HER I AM SURE I WOULD SURELY HAVE COMMITTED THE ULTIMATE SIN, SORRY FOR YOUR HELL BUT YOU ARE MOST LIKELY THE ONLY THING THAT REALLY MATTERS TO HIM...I ALWAYS FEEL THAT MY WIFE SHOULD HAVE ME GO AND LIVE ALONE JUST BECAUSE OF THE MISERY SHE HAS TO GO THROUGH SEEING ME GO THROUGH THE PAIN. I WOULD RATHER SEE MY WIFE WITH SOMEONE ELSE AND HAPPY, SOUNDS STRANGE BUT I LOVE HER MORE THAN LIFE AND DON'T THINK ITS FAIR HER LIFE HAS TO COME TO A HALT BECAUSE OF MY MEDS, NEEDS AND PAIN.
HOPE THIS HELPS, I AM THINKING OF TRING PRIALT BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF HORRIBLE STORIES ON THIS DRUG, I NOW AM TAKING 8 SHOTS OF 4MG 1 CC DILAUDID JUST TO GET BY AND I HATE IT....GOOD LUCK
