I've been having the worst pain I have ever had. I'm going to get an MRI and see a specialist, but until then I'm just kind of waiting around. I have some hydrocodone, but I'm not really sure it is doing much but making me feel sort of loopy. The pain is still there.
I'm really worried because I have to work tonight, and I know it'll be busy. I'm a waiter at a 24 hour restaurant, meaning that all the drunks will be rolling in tonight. Meanwhile, I'm stuck in bed because I can hardly move. I hate calling off work, especially on something like this when it's 'just' pain. I feel so dumb because I feel like my pain is insignificant compared to other's, like I should just deal with it...but at the same time, I just don't think I *can* deal with it.
Anyone else ever feel like that? Or feel conflicted on if they should try and force themselves to do something even though they're in lots of pain?
