    Hi and welcome I am sorry to hear you are struggling 

    We do have a pain management section you may find useful 

    It is hard coming to terms with a disability and that's what most of us here have dealt with so can support you

    Hello @tazzy78 How are you today?

    I wondered, has your GP ever discussed referring you to a pain management clinic?  This NHS webpage has details on how to pursue this if not, and it also lists support groups that can offer specialist help around coping with pain.  

    You mentioned that you are struggling to accept being disabled too.  What is it particularly you are finding hard?  If you let us know we can talk about it with you  :)

    Hope you have a lovely Sunday.
