In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

 I literally feel your pain, i had a Teribble day yesterday and today is not a whole lot better. Its a givin for me when the weather does some screwy things it knocks me for a loop. Snow and sleet yesterday and an ice storm on its way for thur and fri. After 32 years of looking at the same wall paper in our bedroom, i decided to get to work and start peelin and scrapin, i got it done in a matter of a few hours last saturday, monday i painted, took me all day and i didnt push myself, small room and didnt have to get on any ladders, then the weather changed for the worse and so did i. Relax, take your meds, drink some hot tea, cover up with blanket and veg out, hope you get feeling better.

I'm so sorry that you are having a bad day today. It would be awful enough to just have to deal with your normal pain, but a tooth ache too! You have my sympathy! I've only ever had a tooth ache once - when I was in elementary school & cracked a tooth, but the pain was pretty much unbearable! Have you seen a dentist? You will be in my thoughts & prayers. I hope you start feeling better soon & get some sleep tonight!

Me too, I have bronchitas that isnt responding to antibotics, I went to the doctor yesterday and he gave me a stronger antibiotic that's upsetting my stomach very bad eventhough I'm eating food with it. I cant breathe and my asthma inhaler isnt helping very well, my head hurts, I have all over body aches and I was told by the doctor to lay low for the next 2 weeks but I cant, I have classes that I want to attend and I still have christmas shopping to do and my kids have stuff I have to take them to and pick them up and sleeping is terrible cause I cough up plem all night long and wheeze. I just want to cry. And to top this off I have to go to another doctor's appointment that's an hour and half away on friday and theres a bad storm heading through tonight and tomorrow and I have to get my car's oil changed tomorrow whether I like it or not. My dad may drive me but he realy cant cause he has to be at work so we're playing it by ear for the time being, because I cant rescheadule the appontment cause the doctor is closing for the holidays next week and I need a refill on my suboxone so I wont have to suffer through withdrawals for the holidays. He wont refill the medication without me seeing him in person, it's his rules, even if the weather's bad.....just isnt fair. And no I cant find another doctor cause he's the nearest doctor that prescribes this medication, the next nearest doctor is 3 hours away. thanks for listening to me vent.

I have Migraines, Pancreatic Divisum, Severe lower back pain, Fibromyalgia, Asthma from Chronic Bronchitis
Meds: Suboxone 8mg 3xday, Cymbalta 60mg @ night,
Zanaflex 2-4 mg @ night as needed, Treximet as needed,
Ventolin Albuterol Inhaler as needed which seems to be everyday.
Been on Diability since I was 22 for Migraines and chronic Pancreatitas(started the processes when I was 19, I'm 25 now) but am working to get off of it ASAP,I want to be a nurse and work at a Impatient rehab with people with addictions of all kinds

Awwwww Kara and Pam I am so sorry you two are having bad days :-( Got a bed big enough for me to join in this party too??? I'll bring my big fluffy pillows and my own tea and a couple of movies to watch. I too am having a bad day again with the pain. The shooting pain that is going down my left leg is really got me down today. We too have ice storms here and its suppose to snow tonight as well ugggggg!!!! I am so tired of winter and its barely started. It's only noon and I've been in the tub twice and getting ready for a third time.

Anyway....curl down in those covers and lets pop some corn.

Yep me, I feel your "pain free thoughts" flying through cyberspace direct to me.
Thank you.
Hello~Kitty: it sound like you take the prize for "the worst pain day"
However, my back hurts right between my shoulders and down to my derriere. dam!
You know, if a "stranger" read our posts they would probably think we were a bunch
of hypochondriac, worrying, whining women, but that's so not the case. we feel
each others pain in a way.
My husband says, "I'll take your lead and do what needs to be done to get moved."
Sometimes I can't even think straight because of pain. I know it's the same for
you all. I wonder how it will get done?

Hey Pam,
Did you try to help moving and agravate the pain or did it just come back? I find alot of times I don't have to physically hurt myself for the pain to return, stress can do just as much damage as if I lifted something wrong or walked too fast. Did you get stressed over this move? I guess thats a silly question, hug? I'm sorry the big "P" has returned, the Pamela fan club was cellibrating wildly when you reported your good news! I hope you feel better soon! We need to get the happy feet moving again!

I have a hunch you overdid it when you were feeling good. Most of us woud have done the same. Maybe now you have to rest and reboot, so to speak. At least you know the new meds. dose helps, but it doesn't cure the cause, just eases the pain. So if you're moving around, twisting, lifitng, or whatever may have aggravated your spine, that's probably why you're feeing bad again. Take it easy and learn to moderate and I'll be you can get some of that "painfreeness" back again!!

Kara - I hope you're feeling a bit better, and have been able to see a dentist. Toothaches are the pits. Ice packs are the main thing that works for me - until I can get the problem corrected.

Im new so dont know the details, i suffered toothache for ages and finally had it pulled, its bliss.   If yours is nerve or other symptom that you cant do anything for I found holding warm water in my mouth would help for short periods, hope it eases for you  sue2z
