Hi all, This is my main issue that really gets me down when I think that I can't live out a long life and just die naturally. I have no intention of killing myself today or tomorrow or anything, I just feel like at some point down the road I'm going to reach a point where the pain will be too much to handle and I won't be able to take it any more. I've got a chronic pain disorder (Ehlers Danlos Syndrome) and then the breakdown of the symptoms of that over the years. My mother overdosed when she was 50, much because of the pain associated with this disorder. I'm less than a decade from that -- how much longer do ~I~ have? She had every pain med in the book tossed at her by the time she was my age too, before they were outlawed like we were drug seeking losers. So what about ya'll? Who's rowing this boat with me?
