5 ice packs

I’m currently on the couch with 5 ice packs applied to various parts of my body.

The nerve pain in my back, butt, left knee, and left foot are all screaming at the same time. All that I did was walk 3 blocks to the grocery store and back.

When simple tasks like this are interrupted by pain, it makes me truly sad (sometimes). All I think is, ‘it’s 3 fucking blocks!’

All I can do is take care of myself and hope for a better tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be better.

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.
