Gabbs,
First, hello to you. You're not brand new to the forum, but I don't know if we're ever "talked". The tone of your post is a little scary to me.

We all have those moments when we feel like we just can't take it any more, but the way out is to reach for support (like you're doing here) and also get better pain management.

I'm sorry if I'm forgetting some of your history from other posts, but seeing that you're an addiction survivor (that's great) also says you may be having more challenges getting pain management. Do you see an addictionologist? And also, I hope you're seeing a therapist for your anxiety and depression. It sounds like you need to give him/her a call to help you through this time. Please, don't do anything rash!

Sorry, i didnt mean to be scary...I just cant take the pain anymore, and i have docs who dont listen to me or believe me when i tell them what is going on.  Its very frustrating to me.  I see a therapist everyweek and go to the doc about once a week also.  Sometimes it just gets overwhelming to me - most docs have no idea how to treat the pain i have, narcotic painkillers dont work, ive tried vicodin, morphine, ect.  And i just dont know what to do anymore

Gabbs,
You may need to manage your anxiety in order to help you think a little more clearly about managing your pain. That is NOT saying your pain is caused by your anxiety. Just that feeling extremely anxious makes it difficult to think. And yes, it does get overwhelming at times, that's for sure.

What else do you do for yourself to help you calm and relax. I know that's not easy with pain, but if you use some relaxation strategies that can also help ease your pain a bit (not cure it). You also seem to have a strong faith based on your signature, although I wonder if you're waiting for all your pain to be taken away, that may not be realistic (depends on the causes of your pain). Most of us reach a point of having to accept that our pain won't be cured, just managed.

I think I recall some of your other posts and it seems there were still unclear diagnostic issues regarding what's causing your pain. That's the first thing you need to address.

I wish I could help more.

Hugs,
PaLady

When you're convinced you can't take the pain much longer, you suddenly can. People get usd to pain just as they get used to everything else. And a person can take a lot more pain than most can ever imagine.

I think PALafy is absolutley right in pointing out that you should work on your anxiety and depression. Once those problems are "contained" (you can't expect persons never to feel a bit down when they're in constant pain), your physical pain will become more tolerable.

Physical pain grinds you down, psychological pain can break you; I guess you realize that way better than I do; so you'll just have to "take charge" of your life and climb out of that pit you're stuck in. You survived anorexia, surely you're not going to let some physical pain get the better of you, right.

If you need to talk, talk away here. There's always someone present.

Tomorrow is another day, probably cloudy and with some ocasional showers, but a fresh day nevertheless.

Hi Gabby,

I too am concerned about your emotional state. Pain can drive us to things we would never think of or do. If you are feeling overwhelmed, especially when alone or in the middle of the night please call the link below. It's a crisis line in Florida. They may have some answers for where to turn to get better help.
