I'm 68 yrs old, male, married with 2 children and have 5 grand children.
I have also been an amputee for nigh on 16 yrs - right leg, high above knee - due to radiotherapy treatment for liposarcoma some 27 yrs ago and experience a great deal of nerve pain in my stump.
Having been treated for a lymphoma of the left eye, a year ago I have since been diagnosed as having PSP with complications, early stages.
The continual nerve and muscle pain have lead to a regime of increasingly more powerful opiates leading to a state of continuous drowsiness but with the pain always breaking through eventually - back to badly disturbed nights, etc.
Can't think any more just now - sorry!
