I moved back home 10 years ago to take care of my parents. My mother had a stroke and my father had cancer,dementia. My father died 5 years ago and now I take care of my mother and I also work full time. She can get around fine but very slowly and I come home and make lunch. I work near by. I have 2 bulging discs degenerative disc disease and arthritis in my spine. So now I am addicted to pain pills. I have had physical therapy for my back and had cortizone shots and had the nerves burnt off along my spine. I also tore my meniscis. I just can not stop the pills. If I do stop I get sick and then who cares for my mother. I do not want to go into treatment right now because they would put my mother in a nursing home and I promised my dad that would not happen. I was able to keep him up until 1 week before he died in the hospital. I just need help right now but do know what to do.
