Bed of Nails

Living with back pain sucks on its own but for over a year now, nerve pain is becoming more prevalent in my life. Every morning, the moment my feet hit the ground, it feels like I’m walking on a bed of nails. This year, Santa brought me constant nerve pain in my feet and left leg. It’s not the best gift I’ve ever received. Luckily, it’s only been a few days. Unlike my back pain which is constant, nerve pain tends to subside a little with just flare ups. That might not sound like a win but, trust me, it is.

I've been living with chronic pain for almost 30 years and I've been through the ringer with injections, medications, physical therapy, Eastern medicine, group meetings, and surgery. I'm also a group facilitator for the American Chronic Pain Association and we focus on helping others living with chronic pain. Hopefully, reading this journal will let people know they're not alone and there is help.
