Celebrating 22 years of pain!



  • This is wonderful site. It is a challenge to deal with severe pain 24 hour a day with hardly any relief. Every time I move my neck it like bone breaking pain. I goes deep into the bone and almost knocks me out. I am afraid to take any nerve block injections. I have the weirdest reactions to everything, smiles.. I understand completely about trying to find a reason to live with such mind blowing pain. I live with 3 little female cats, well one on them is a fatty girl and she is very bitchy now. Ha Ha, she has arthritis and is 20 lbs. overweight . lol I have two little dogs, one is old and blind. He is a survivor. He gets pissed and takes off running when he is frustrated because he can't see anymore.. He is a trooper. I watch him go for walks, blind and he is very brave. Animals have a strong survival instinct. I live alone with 3 cats, two little dogs and 18 birds. They have taught me to be strong and keep on getting up no matter have much pain I am in or how discouraged I get because nothing is working. I hope to hear from the people on this site and hope to be able to help anyone I can to move past the pain and find a reason for living again. Thanks Darlene
  • I have been dealing with very severe pain for more than 50 years!
    I used to demand help from medicine.

    Now I just take it one day at a time. I do what I can and leave the rest for someone else. Literally, I have dropped cash and stood there till someone will pick it up for me.

    I do what I can and worry about tomorrow when tomorrow comes.

    Believe it or not, we are gaining valuable experience that the healthy don't get. My mom was never sick a day in her life till she had cancer. She gave up after a very short battle. She told me she had no idea how I manage to fight everyday with the pain (which is worse than her cancer was) every single day. I remember one day when she threw up three times. That was enough - she could not take "anymore". I have spent whole days in so much pain I can't keep a thing down! If I ever get cancer, I don't know what I will do but I wonder if I am better able to deal with the issues? Hope I don't find out!
    just one example of how a healthy person was less able to deal with illness.
