I remember back in the day, when life was so much simpler.
Running after a huge elk, proud to be able to put meat on the table.
Being able to hold a 40 hour a week job, so that I was helping with the bills.
Having the ability to take long walks with my husband, hand in hand window shopping.
Sitting by the lake for hours (back in WY) sketching a particular object that interested me.
A soft embrace as I laid in bed with hubby and cuddling for hours on a Saturday morning.
 
But all of that is gone.  Gone with one simple shift of my hips to catch a falling elderly lady that I thought was the "right thing to do".  Now after 10 years with this horrible pain that never goes away.  Always there, nagging at my wits.  But, there is a bright spot....I had the pleasure of meeting each one of you.  I realized that my pain is valid and that I can always depend on all of you to cheer me up and help me make sense of this horrible, crappy pain. 
 
Bless each of you and I pray for everyone of my dear friends here on HW to find a better way to manage your pain.
 
Love you all!

Gosh i really feel for you Scared. I am in the same boat with my pain. I can't make sense of it. The same pain in each of my temples for ten years, it doesn't change. And I have done it all. There is nothing that will make it better. And that is what I am working on, living with this pain. But it's hard, it's too hard today. Like you I can't enjoy many things i did before this pain came along. Like i said to my hubby today, I can't even enjoy my summer. I am in bed with ice on my head. Each day is a struggle. I thank God for my HW friends, because it is all of you that keep me going, from one day to the next. I am trying, oh Lord but I am trying.
So please stay with me and we will do it all together. We will help each other thru our dark days. OK

I am with you girl!!! Please hang in there!!!!

hugs

Hi Suzane (and apologies for hijacking this thread)

Did you look into ordering that headband thing I sent you, to see if it would help? It probably comes with a guarantee, so you have nothing to lose by trying it, and everything to gain if it works. Let me know.

Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT

Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily

Scarred,

I don't think we have met, so nice to meet you, but so sorry it is under these circumstances! Your CP comes from a situation that sounds a lot like mine! However, I wish I could say I was trying to help someone else.....nope....just me! I slipped on ice and did all kinds of weird twisting trying not to fall. Found out later, that I would be a lot better off if I would have just fallen. I am mourning many losses in my life right now, also, to the point that I have told my husband that we need to get a divorce because I feel like my life is over and he still has one that I do not want to ruin! He won't leave....thank God...but I take on a lot of unnecessary guilt too! Chronic pain can totally consume you! It affects so much! I can totally relate to the simple things you miss! My husband and I used to camp and fish.....I can't imagine doing either right now, or working full-time! I think one of the biggest things I miss is a good nights sleep....cuddling with my hubby till late in the morning! I do really understand....probably most of us do.....but it hurts my heart when I hear that others are feeling so badly! I would not wish this on anyone....including my worst enemy!

I, also, am so happy that my journey led me here, and I am very happy to get to meet and talk to you! Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and somehow we will ALL get through this....and there are times when you just got to let it out so you can heal on the inside!

Take care of you!

You know the thing is my fellow CPers.....is it is always in the forefront of each of our minds. There seems to be no escape from the pain and the fact that we cannot do the things that we desire to do. I think in my world that is the hardest part of the entire thing....I cannot escape the CP ever!

Scarred,

You are sooooo right!! CP seems to completely consume me at times! We just have to stick together and fight through this and realize that we are still who we are.....even with CP!! We can not always do what we want but inside we are still the same.....beautiful people!

Take care of you!
