NiNi53- Thanks for the birthday wishes. My Dr told me to cut the patches in half and I've heard that a lot of people do that. Using a half of a patch on each side does absolutely nothing for me. I'm pretty disappointed as I've heard many other people have great success with them.
Today is a VERY bad day for me pain wise. It rained all day yesterday and didn't stop until a couple of hours ago. I am SO sick of all of this rain. It's making my pain 10 times worse and I want to scream just sitting up to type this, so I can't even get my homework finished that is due tonight.
I am SO sick of this chronic pain- and I hate days like this when it's so bad. All I want to do is curl up in the fetal position on my bed and cry. This is just not fair!
I'm trying ice right now instead of my heating pad, it's helping a little, but it's quite uncomfortable.
I hope everyone is having a better day than I am.
