So tired of waking up to this pain



  • Ok just had to tell you this...lol Well first my husband is too busy working and too tired when he is off so we have need to mow and pull weeds out side for awhile. Well two weeks ago I had one really good day and decided to do it!!! Well I mowed the front and back and pulled a ton of weeds and there were huge piles all around the house. Before I could completely finish my pain hit full force. I dropped everything on the spot and quit. It has been two weeks now and there are shovels, rakes and piles, spread out in the front of the house and back just dropped and have been untouched for two weeks!!! It looks ridiculous!!! I think we are a sad pair I am in too much pain to finish and hubby is too tired!!!! LOL Anyway if you could just picture it!!! Hang in there we are all there with you!!! This pain just sucks!!!!
  • I so hope your pain backs down again soon. I know when I go through my flares, life is NOT good. I will send you positive energy for strength, and to help push the pain back.

    I did switch the way I'm taking the methadone. And it dose make a difference. I now take one just befor I go to bed. And that lessens the pain I wake up to. But like many of you caught on too my goal was less not more. But it is what it is. I've just never had a pain flair last this long. Thanks for the good vibes and prayers from everyone.
    Splenda, yes I can picture your yard, =)) Been there done that! #:S
