Please forgive me if I have posted such a question as this before. I don't think I have. It is a thought that comes to my mind once in awhile so maybe I did :?
My pain level tonight is TOPPED out, so not all brain cells are working right now.
I have been off my celebrex for about a week now and OMG this cold weather is maxing me!
I got by from samples from my Dr for over a yr but he finally ran out. Thanks to so wonderful members here I have a few more leads to track down that may help me. My insurance won't pay for my celebrex
But even on celebrex I get maxed out pain levels every few months anyways - just due to "life".
At times like these I wonder why I fight so hard to remain upright. My disks, hips & knees are such that my Drs would like to see me in a wheel chair just to take off some of the "load".
I keep saying "maybe some day AFTER I lose weight". I gained so much weight after the injury. I know that if I set in a chair right now I will remain obese.
However if I could lose the weight maybe the "load" would not be so bad...
Where is the shaking head not knowing what to think any more smiley lol
I know a chair is not a miracle - but I wonder sometimes if my Drs are right and it would reduce my pain levels.
Any ways - so I wonder if I am alone in thinking like this.
Has your pain ever been so bad that you thought a wheel chair looked good ?
Even if this post makes no sense - thanks for the space to rant & rave and have a mini pity party for myself...
