I could use a little support right now. I have had my stim for 5 months and am doing really well with it. The problem is I accidentally tore the nail off my big toe on vacation last week (stumbled while enjoying a family walk). I am dealing with excruciating nail bed pain and I can't keep my stim on 24/7 like I usually do because the very tips of the tingling I need for lower back, hips, and thighs hit my toes.
Having the stim tingling hit the raw nail bed is breath-taking and nauseatingly painful. Hence my current state - alternately crying and swearing because of the toe pain and not being able to deal with my back pain the best way I know how. I am told the worst of the nail bed pain lasts 3 weeks, so I've two more of this to go? And I leave tomorrow for a 6 day business trip/professional conference - wearing a post-surgical shoe.
Suggestions would be great, but sympathy will do. I hate this.
