Is this where we come to feel miserable when it is not related to our "normal" pain?
Went to see my PCP Monday night cause he wants to see me every month to make sure I'm stable, now mind you I had the Psych eval for my SCS last Thursday! So, any who, I waked up yesterday with that feeling. Ya'll know the one, the cold or flu is moving in
So I went to work yesterday and with some sudafed hid in my office all day as I did not want to spread the joy, I am a nice guy, no matter what else you may have heard...
Last night I knew it was too much to go back in today
So here I sit burning sick time that I was desperately trying to save to get me thru my scs trial and hoepfully the permanent version
I am somewhat ticked. The good side is the aches and pains are enough to cancel out my constant pain! I ache so much all over I only took two Hydrocodone and some Benedryl (which is great stuff for sleep!) plus my Desipramine and a 300mg of Neurontin at bedtime. That will make the PCP happy if I stretch my hydros out longer. I doubt he cares how I do it as long as I do!
So, Here I am, watching crappy daytime TV, again. Love HDTV, but hey you are just seeing more detail on the same old boring shows!
How's everyone else handle sick days on top of pain days? I was thinking of perhaps going into the doctors office, sneezing on my hands then shaking his...
I would not do that though! I got to respect my PCPs grit and determination to his job, the man is bound to a wheel chair after fighting MS for 20 years now! When I first saw him, he ran and biked and was extremely active. Now he is frail and wheel chair bound, yet he works a fairly normal schedule. His wife works in the same building and joins him for lunch. In retrospect I should ask him how he copes? Perhaps there is information there I have ignored? Perhaps he will not share if I do ask? I do know he can spend lots of time on each patient as they allow him longer to get around in his chair.
Take care, don't catch what I got... got to love January in WV.
