I am depressed. I have pain in my neck. I swear I must DO something.
I can not go around with mismatched pj's, stringy hair, unfiled nailes,
frowny face, no bra, and worst of all unbrushed teeth.
I feel like I just want to lay on the bed and stare at the backs of my lids.
Ok, I'll start with a shower. Oh darn darn darn

Hi Pamela,
I am so sorry to hear that you are hurting so much. I wish I knew what to do....just know youre in my thoughts and I hope you are having a bit more comfort. Maybe read a little of a book, take a long bath, watch a favorite show? One little step at a time, hugs to you

I'd start with the teeth brushing, myself. All these meds we pain folks take can be hard on the teeth without regular brushing. I use one of those Crest Spinbrush toothbrushes. You don't have to move it a heck of a lot, which is an A+ when just breathing hurts. ;-)

It's good to hear from you guys ...
I have new reason to live ... I'll have someone get me a Crest Spin Brush
as Bionic Woman says.
I do swear that I will brush three times a day.
Bionic Woman, thank you.
You know, it's good to reach out and get sweet messages and messages
that can be of great importance to our health.

PS I WAS going to start with tooth brushing but for other reasons.

I used to sing a song to my kids ...
You wake up in the morning and you wanna have some fun
You brush your teef
