 Bonnie,  I am sorry that you have this disorder.  I too had to leave my job and get on disability. I also have alot of pain. Have had adhesion surgeries several times. I do know that since I started anti-depressants along with pain medicine that at least most of the time it is tolerable. (Some days are very bad) Have you  been put on anti-depressants?  You might look into that.  Also, the more that I lay down, the more depressed I get.  I try and go outside and get fresh air every day.  I also began going to jazzercise two months ago and that has helped.  If a movement hurts too bad, I just don't do it. I really think I have done better mentally though with the anti-depressants.  I have three children also and a granddaughter that is the love of my life.  Maybe you could get on Methadone for pain.  I am on it and it doesn't take all the pain away but it does help.  Just remember, that you are not alone and hopefully you can find a way to feel better. kelly > >
