The nerve of it

I’m tired of nerve pain. For most of my life I just had regular back pain. The past 3 years it’s been all about nerve pain; adjusting to it, what helps, what doesn’t hurt, but it’s just so different and difficult.

It’s extremely frustrating because very little actually helps. At least with back pain you can ice or take Tylenol to get some relief. This is just a different beast that I’m struggling with.

But hey, I did make more bread today to occupy my mind. And, it’s a new recipe!

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.
