nono  Well here i am in severe pain ,but i'm going to the mountains any ways. I just would like to have a day of fun with out pain. My back is killing me and i have pain thats moved into my hip area too uggggggg. I sure know how to live it up this is my only off time this year to have fun and my pain level has to be a good 9. I went to my chiro twice this week but i woke up in so much pain i know it will put a damper on the weekend. So i'll go and try to act like i'm not hurting and try to have a good time. Thanks for letting me vent ...Kay

Kay,
If there's a bathtub when you get there how about taking a nice, warm bath or shower? Maybe that will help relax your muscles a bit. It's so sad when we want to do some occasional fun stuff and pain gets in the way. All you can do is your best, trying to give yourself some TLC while you're there.

hugs,

PaLady

I'm back from our camping trip it was nice and the grandkids had a wonderful time. I didn't post sooner because i'm still in alot of pain. I took monday and rested trying to get my back to ease up because i knew tuesday would be a long hard day.It was i went in at 7 am and didn't get home ti'll 8pm last night. I'm sitting here posting before work wondering how much longer i can deal with being in pain most of the time. ALL i do is hurt ,work and sleep what kinda life is this really can't take strong pain meds and be able to do my job. I keep taking advil to take the edge off my pain and it's not working well. I hope you all are having better days and less pain than i am. Kay

Hi Kay!

I'm so glad you got away but it breaks my heart that you are having so much pain. I so understand. When we were gone for 2 weeks I had several days when the pain was unbelievable, but I was so determined to keep going and enjoying myself...dang it!...lol I'm going to assume you need to keep working, plus you likely have years built up and insurance etc... but is it possible for you to switch to a different position so you won't have the physical stresses on your body like you do now? It is terribly hard to change but it might be worth looking into. Maybe a counter job or higher. You've been at your job quite a while, haven't you?

Anyway, at least do saw and enjoyed the grandkids and that makes it all so much more fun. Warmest hugs!

I think ACTING like your not in pain just drains you. I have to do it all the time or people think I'm being (southern word ahead) pissy. It's irritating.


Sorry, I sound like a real downer. Acting like I'm not in pain is one of those things that just irritates me to no end.
