((( Gentle hugs ))) the best advice I know how to give is to break it down into.smaller segments. I can see how it could be overwhelming, but if you tackle it a little at a time that mountain doesnt seem quite so impossible to climb.

No They didn't give me any pain meds. He feels the risk out weigh the benefits with all the other meds I'm on. He wants to try and ween me off or down on my sleep meds to give a bigger margin to work with. That a why we r gonna try the epidural first and see how it goes.
