When the sun sets…

For the 4th day in a row, my nerves fire up as soon as the sun sets. During the day I’m okay and can actually accomplish the things I need to do. Once it’s starts getting dark, my back, legs, and feet feel like I’m constantly being stuck with needles. It’s not pleasant.

I don’t know what to do or how to calm my nerves. It’s painful and sucks. Last night I curled up in a ball and just cried.

Now…some good news!

I’ll begin my spinal cord stimulator trial on March 8th. If it works, I’ll get the permanent stimulator on March 15th. I’m putting all my eggs in the stimulator basket in hopes I get get some relief. I NEED it to provide some relief.

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.
