After 60 years of RLS and 10 years on Ropinerole,recently Oramorph combined I'm at the end of my tether.I am 79 years old,far too old to be throwing myself on the floor after walking around for hours and am just too tired to stand,I hear myself howling like an animal in agony and I know this can't go on.Apart from Restless Legs (in my back) I Am in excellent health for my age. I had a hip replacement recently,I don't class that an illness?I have been in great distress with the pain in my hip caused by the jerking of R L which I couldn't control.I have a loving family but I live alone,which I'm pleased about,I couldn't bear a person who cared for me to see me suffering so much,especially as they couldn't help.
I'm tired now,after hours of kicking and thrashing. My main worry is how I will cope if for some reason I am unable to move and still get Restless Legs. I am terrified at the thought.That is why I know I must end my life before that situation arises.
