Go for outings with your son Be straight forward & whatever you feel discuss openly with your husband, because if problems can be sorted out, that is much better than moving out of marriage Think of your son also, his future should not suffer Indulge yourself in meaningful activities Do meditation & deep breathing exercise Never think of killing yourself, suicide is the biggest crime Consult your nearby psychiatrist If you are muslim then offer 5 times salah regularly & make dua, In shaa allah Allah will give you the best.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
Hello, Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are a common treatment option for many forms of low back pain and leg pain. They are an integral part of the non-surgical management of sciatica and low back pain. The goal of the injection is pain relief; at times the injection alone is sufficient to provide relief, but commonly an epidural steroid injection is used in combination . The effects of an epidural steroid injection tend to be temporary lasting from a week to up to a year. Take care.
