Ana, I also, suffer from sciatica, arthritis, and neuropathy. It is devastating. People do not understand and society delegitimizes our pain. Check out my article on it and the new therapies available. I was bedridden and I had a spinal cord stimulator inserted. I am now able to function better, though, at times I have to revert back to my bed. I got an adjustable bed with a foam mattress. And I am looking on Amazon for over-the-bed tables or side tables like the ones in the hospital. Those are not that expensive. We have to inform and advocate for ourselves and each other. We draw strength from one another and from God. Keep writing!
