I woke up this morning with quite an ache in my... well... whole body. Felt pretty good after a couple of hours. Went out and got my hair done. Came home with intentions of cleaning up my sister-in-laws computer.
After my epidural, my pain has been minimal. Minor pain in right hip, and moderate upper back pain.
I can't even sit here at the computer tonight
my neck is sore, my legs are cramped, and my hips are screaming!! I feel like they're falling off. Also getting a pretty strong throbbing pain in my left wrist. Comes and goes, but when its here it makes me wince. (Now that I think about it, having it in right wrist too, and left leg shin area)
I've got to go lay down. Not sure really where to start with this pain in my hips. Think I'll try the heating pad. I have percocet, 5mg 2-4 a day. I just took number four. I feel really terrible about it.
Another one of my so-called friends gave me the "pill" remark the other day. She heard that I was pregnant, called me to congratulate. Then she threw in with a snotty attitude: "what are you going to do about all those pills?"
All those pills? WTF do my friends think of me really? All those pills, like I'm a walking pharmacy. I only take two a day, and with full consent of my doctors. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I called every doctor I see. I stopped meds until I got the ok. I told her that I spoke to all of my doctors, and they all agreed that my treatments are perfectly safe. I hear her say, "yah thats bs" (unedited) under her breathe. What like I'm lying? All of my doctors are idiots? What?
So here I sit in pain, and kicking myself for trying to get some relief. I feel like I should be stronger. You know what I was told I CANNOT take? Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Aleve... none of that. And even though they said it was safe, I stopped taking my valium because I feel if I can get by without it I should. Am I wrong for listening to my doctors? Should I be in pain if I can safely take something for it?
~X( I'm pulling my hair out tonight. Sorry for the big long vent. This post WAS supposed to be about pain. I'm going to try to go to bed. I'll be back in a little while if I don't sleep.
Thanks for listening
