Pain, Pain Go Away!!

I have been doing my best not to complain about the pain. The family is tired of  hearing it and think I use it as an excuse to get out of things. Maybe they are right, but it doesn’t change the pain any. I have been trying to distract myself with writing poems, working on blog. cleaned some of my room because Dad told me to and reading some of the blogs online.

I even went to a football game for my grandson and didn’t mention the pain and how sitting in the bleaches hurt. I just watched the game as much as possible and shut up. I promised the family I would stop pushing them away so that is the reason I went to the game. My grandson didn’t even get to play. My ex-husband was there which still sets my blood to boiling (so much for forgiveness yet), but he was involved mainly with our grandson the Marine who leaves tomorrow for 2 years in Okinawa, Japan. At least he is not in Afghanistan.

I am trying to remember some of the good stuff from when I was married. I am trying to forget the bad stuff, but it sure is hard. More bad than good.

My blood sugar numbers are all over the place. I have no control whatsoever and they say it is the pain and stress causing it. I can hardly wait for the high numbers from the steroid shots.

Tomorrow I have my appointments with the dietician and the nurse at the Diabetes center and then my psycho-therapy appointment. I go every weeks. Lately it has been very emotional.

    I can so relate to this…almost all…
    sitting on those bleachers omg… talk about pain…I remember them all to well…
    I also trying to do more around the house here…pushing myself…and trying not to push loved ones away is so hard…I hate for people to see me in pain and I don’t usually mention it I usually just say when asked how am I doing I just say hanging in there… I am blessed with my dad helping along with my better half but I know that they are tired of doing all the things they have on there plate…
    I really hope that you get some relief you deserve…and remember its ok if you are not able to do things…

        I understand and hear ya …
        no one should make you feel like a burden …you are sick and in severe pain… that most pain pills don’t even help… they should understand your pain maybe get a few books and lend them out to ones that just don’t get it…
        At times I even have to lay down during the day and I used to beat myself up I wasn’t used to the positive support I have these days… so when it gets to the point where I lay down dad n better half just tell me its ok and if I need anything just ask…I wish this for you… remember that you are not a burden at all… you can’t see many illnesses like ours and they need to encourage you and help… not add stress to you…

          They do to a point, but sometimes I guess they just get tired of it. Heck I am tired of it. Chronic pain for 40 years and I even suffered as a child and in my teens. My body has betrayed me all of my life and you are right they can’t see it and so it must not be there. I don’t even have enough pain pills yet and waiting to see pain management. That is October 17.

              Thanks. I am not worried about withdrawals. Had so few I only took 1 or 2 on a bad night. Didn’t take all 4 of them per day. That is why the pain is so bad right now. I am not on a full maintenance dose yet. This is the same pain dr I saw before, but had to stop because I had no insurance til Medicare kicked in. I am so sorry your pain dr did that. Yes they do have a lot of paperwork. I just filled out 13 pages of it. She is going to want a cervical MRI and my insurance won’t authorize it. It will be up to her to convince them or I may not get the steroid shots. Already can’t do the physical therapy, not that it helped much last time anyhow.
