That's the thing about chronic pain...you just never know when it will come back to visit or to stay. I was doing fairly well the past few months-with being on the nerve meds, then without, with the usual pain meds and then with a lesser dose.
This past week thought things seem to be awry again. My shoulders are stiff as if I had pulled a manual plow through the fields and my old-as-time friend, Mr. Back Pain persists. Yet here's the thing: I hate taking more pain meds-I'm highly sensitive to them, amongst other reasons-and so I rarely take more than my usual low dose.
Thus, starts the oh-so-fun merry go round again.
Today, I am grateful for: 1 more class!!!, a nice lunch out, a relaxing afternoon, friends, family and God.
Peace to all...
