Hi Spinies :H ,
Well, my turn to lean on a shoulder, PLEASE ~X( . My pain has returned within the past 2 weeks and doesn't seem to be letting go like it usually does. I am afraid something new is stirring, or maybe I just need my medications adjusted. I don't know ... just don't know what to do. I am going to see my pain mgmt doc tomorrow so we shall see. I just don't want any more injection procedures. They don't give me any relief, aside from the financial aspect. Even with insurance, these procedures are expensive. My husband and I are both on Soc Sec income. Seems like the medications are the only thing at this point with which I can control this horrid cervical pain. It is so discouraging. Of course, the pain antagonizes my anxiety, so that, too, is making its presence known. I try to maintain the "strong face" and do as much and as many normal things that I can, but I hurt and I just don't want to do anything!
I try to talk to my husband and he is somewhat understanding, but I know that after 6 years of this he is probably sick of hearing about it ... and rightfully so. He's always been there for me, but sometimes, I guess I need a little more of him than maybe I have a right to ask for. No one around me is suffering with chronic pain, so you guys are my only link to someone who DOES understand. I have no one else to talk to! Thanks for letting me vent. If we all stick together, maybe we can get through this rough ride. You all are great. Don't know what I would do without you or this website >:D< .
