My 80yr old mother is chronic pain. Myself too at 58yrs old. Bad neck and spine. My husband is wore out taking care of us. Me too as i do her pills, meals thrills, chills. I had made that big promis! She sokes and has a small dog tthat is the love of her life. She is seeing things that arn't there and has soo many burn holes in everything. Her only spleasure she says is smoking and her dog. Anursing home would forbid that. I hurt so bad some times i can't even go next door to tend to her pain. I cryed all night as to what to do.
