It’s awful dealing with incompetent people that are bad at their job. Living with pain is bad enough but adding this (see pic) just makes things worse. A bad blood draw can be very painful.
Baking bread has become a pretty good way to occupy my brain when I feel awful. It takes a few hours and feels good when I’m done. Hopefully it tastes good!
On Sunday, I woke up and my left upper back/shoulder began to hurt. I really didn’t think anything of it. By Monday morning, the pain became extremely intense and it was hard to breathe. Tuesday, I decided, ‘let’s get this looked at.’ Luckily, X-rays and blood tests all came back negative. Unfortunately, no answer for […]
Stress, pain, get sick… Pain, stress, get sick… It’s almost always the same. Today, throw in multiple fits of panic. And tears. I hate this feeling.
My back seized up when I was shaving my beard. Seriously. At least it seized after the sun went down. It’s time for 3 ice packs.
I recently started therapy again in hopes that it will help with pain management. It’s a little too early to tell but I really hope it helps. At least it can’t hurt, right? It will give me an opportunity to speak with a professional and relieve stress. Normally, stress is a big trigger for my […]
As I sit (well, lay) with three ice packs on, I’m at least happy about having a great home cooked meal with my love. Plus, she really liked the meal as well which is always nice. I started cooking more and more about two years ago to help control my weight and eat better in […]
Hope you have a pain free year…or a good chunk of time in less pain.
Hopefully we are able to be pain free, even for a minute, and celebrate with the people we love.
This is something I’ve been resisting for almost 2 years and for good reason. The success rate is medium, it’s a 2 step process either way, and it doesn’t actually fix anything. But, I’m nearing the point now where I have 3 options, do nothing and live, the stimulator, or get a massive back surgery […]
Trying to look on the bright side… All joking aside, the sun shining really does help with mood. Physically, no it doesn’t help but a blue sky makes pain easier to deal with. Granted, I still feel like garbage but I’m not completely in tears so win-win.
Woke up after a horrible night of sleep feeling slightly better than expected. We walked to get breakfast. It’s not a far walk, maybe 1.5 miles round trip. On the way home, something set my nerves off. They went from a whisper to a scream in a few blocks. My hip started burning like it […]
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 […]
I’m just getting started with this blog thing and actually putting ‘how I feel’ into words. This is not something I’m used to doing or even remotely familiar with. The plan is to try to post everyday. Sometimes that will be easy but sometimes, like today, I would rather just curl up in a ball.
