It's been a beautiful 2 days and had really planned to get up and get moving. Usually when I have a day off, I take a Vicodin then lay down and wait for the pain to subside before I start chores, errands, etc.
My pain is really bad in mornings. If I try to lie in bed too long to enjoy not having to get up and race around on my day off, muscle spasms in neck and shoulders start in. The kind that feel like being stabbed with splinters in 50 places.
This morning, the pain didn't let up and taking a Vicodin and I'm so angry at the pain and not being able to do things without this stabbing pain that I have taken 2 prescription strength Ibuprofen, 10 mg of Flexeril, and 4 Vicodin. In other words, 2 doses of my med cocktail within 2-3 hours.
Right now, I'm lying down on a water bottle filled with water and frozen. The hard ice feels good.
I'm really sick of being in pain and taking meds then turning into a drugged vegetable.
Thanks for listening.
