Hi, my name is Weymouth2!

I suffer (and I mean suffer) from spinal stenosis and osteoarthritis. I have been on all sorts of painkillers, tramadol, gabapentin, naproxim, fentynal, co codomol, and many others. None of which did any good and some of them left me feeling strange and confused. So i came off tramadol and gabapentin with the help of my G.P. and now take only naproxim, co codomol and fentynal. And they don't really help. I'm more or less confined to the house now as going out hurts too much. Can't do much in the way of housework either, but am lucky because my son's partner comes over twice a week to help with housework and shopping. I have two cats to keep me company and sometimes think i'm turning into the crazy cat lady lol.
