A Response to Pain


Sometimes I have pain days. Sometimes they keep coming and it gets to be too much.  I called my doctor’s office and they got me an appointment for tomorrow morning.  Hopefully they can give me something that will help.

I found some great quotes on Pinterest.

I really wish I didn’t have to be so strong.

  1. I have pain pills as backup for the worst days. When I used to take them often then I would get used to them and kept needing something stronger. I hope they can help you with something that will work for you. Pain can make you unable to think or focus or sleep. so I hope you get some relief. 🙂

    • Thanks Rita, I hope so too. It has been around 40 below zero and my pain has been a lot worse than usual. I think I just need something to get me through those days when it is that cold. I am having a hard time sleeping, focusing or doing anything at all. This morning when I called the nurse she could tell I was upset by my voice. She asked if I was okay or I had any thoughts of hurting myself. I couldn’t say I hadn’t thought of taking everything in my medicine cabinet at once and I just started crying. I have always been pretty tough and have a high pain tolerance but this is just too much. I’m grateful that she worked her magic and got me in so soon. I don’t think I could have waited much longer. It hurts to walk and it hurts to move any part of my body. It still hurt if I sit still but not as much so I’m staying in my chair and pretending to pay attention to people or the TV. I can’t focus on anything.

Let me know what you think of this post.
