What an awful day

How many times have you thought those words?

I have been in increased pain due to the weather for 3 days now. All I can think is, why can't it stop for just a little while?

I told my boss on Tuesday, I will be leaving early today, there is weather coming in. I don't know what is coming but it hurts. Often times once the weather gets here the pain subsides. But, not this time :( I feel like a giant carving board of sliced shoulder....

So, How many others are here thinking the subject line?
I have to go see Dr. Shrink now, then I'm going home to dive into my bottle of Norco. I'll check back later.

Part Two:

Dr. Shrink understands my stress about my upcoming surgery and even the stress of waiting to find out if I can get insurance approval... So, I now have a perscription for Ambien, I am so grateful to have a doctor that has back pain himself. He gets all of this, he is happy I am on track for an SCS. My parting words today to him were, "Thank you, hopefully when I see you in August I will have some fresh scars and less pain" Is that sad or strange? I am so much in pain today I would honestly cancel the trip to Florida in a heartbeat if I could have surgery for the SCS in stead. Today is one of those days when you wish the hurting part would go away.

Somedays I think the rain is made of razorblades.


  • I'm sorry that you had a bad day Wrambler. If it makes you feel any better I had a pretty crappy one myself LOL! I got my first massage today since my surgery. I was hoping that it would get rid of the steel cables that have taken place in my neck instead of the muscles that used to be there. Instead it increased the nerve pain in my arm (and I didn't think that was possible) by about double. Add to that my mother decided to have one of her dementia laden fits and it ended up being a fine day indeed....not.

    All we can do is hope for a better tomorrow. It's all going to blend in as I can't sleep anyway.

    Yes, I agree, rain IS made of razorblades.

    I hope it gets better and that August comes around quickly for you. The SCS is something I dream about, especially on days like this, and I'm always happy to see someone have the opprotunity for a life with less pain.

    Hang in there,
