Is that so much to ask for? One day, when I can get through the day till the end of my workday? ONCE!
8:20 take 1 norco
11:00 it starts to wear off.
12:30 take norco
1:00 the pain is increasing instead of decreasing.
2:00 I am wriggling around trying to do anything to get comfortable.
3:45-4:15 I surrender the day and go home.
As soon as I walk in the door I take 2 norco, then four hours late 2 more and go to bed.
I am supposed to work till 4:45, I have not made it to that time in MONTHS. I work through my lunch everyday as I know I am not going to make it. Today was going so well, I felt almost O.K. about 1:30 I moved slightly and felt that little pop in between my shoulder blades, now, I could just about cry, again... No way I can even go up on meds, even if I wanted to, SCS on May 4th. I should be cutting back.
It's going to be a long time getting there.
I know I'm better off than most, still working, but is it too much for any of us to just get a bleepin break???
I seriously can not remember what a life without pain is really like? What do those people do with their time?
It all seems so alien to me now. all of it.
