Having a bad pain day, but my fever is gone. Saw doc Monday and she gave me a whatchacallit pack because I have some Gawd awful bug. My throat is still hurting…neck and face swollen…and my tongue has blisters. Omg…disgusting!!!

I can’t shake this pain lately. I was having a lot of nearly pain – free days for about a month, but that seems to have stopped. I feel the way flowers must feel when we press them into books.

I hate talking about pain. It’s one of those things that, no matter how bad you hurt, you’re keenly aware that others are worse off, by far. Even so, that sad fact doesn’t lessen the impact that chronic pain has on my life. It pisses me off. It seems as though there should be a real way to stop this. I don’t want to grow old this way.

One thought on “Ouch!

  1. Sorry to hear you’ve been having bad pain days again lately. It doesn’t matter that people are worse off – we all have problems relevant to our own lives and you have every right to moan. I too dread growing old this way – it fills me with so much fear I struggle for breath sometimes – it’s a pretty scary prospect and takes a hell of a lot to fight the depression. You take care and I hope you start to improve soon…x
