Got the 6 month oil change.

Apparently, my stimulator battery is similar to a car engine and needs an oil change about every 6 months. Since this form of maintenance was never laid out for me, my last ‘oil change’ was 18 months ago.

The difference is night and day with regards to before and after the oil change. I’m certainly glad I took care of this problem. Now, my pain went from a 7.5 to a 7. This may come off as sarcastic but that small difference truly helps.

Since my cat kept me up all night last night, I’m going to sleep before 10pm.

PS: it’s not actually an oil change. Please don’t think I’m dumping motor oil into my body.

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.
