Within the last 2 months, David noted he has experienced more physical pain in his back and neck area. Because he has not been sleeping well, Robert drinks more at night. He stated that when he was younger, he use to drink more frequently but now he only drinks two or three beers per night. Sometimes, he feels like life is hardly worth living.
