Nothing really new going on with me this week, but wanted to say hello and say that I hope everyone is feeling okay, or if not okay then tolerable.
I have been in a lot of pain lately. My joints hurt so much, they are so stiff, sore, and swollen. Along with my back pain and nerve pain in my leg I wonder if this pain will ever get any better. I would love to wake up one day and feel good, not have any pain.
Sometimes I wonder whats wrong with me, why do I need these pain pills, its not like I have a terminal disease or something. Sometimes people look at you funny and will even say "why dont you work", and/or "you know if you just do more exercises and get moving you will feel fine".
My family (my husband and kids) dont say this to me they know and understand my conditions but my extended family does not always understand truly what its like to have chronic pain and how it affects you.
I have come to realize how depression plays a roll in chronic pain too. I use to be able to alot more than I can do, and its depressing to have lost that part of my life.
Well, thanks for listening to me basically whine...
