I am at the end of my wits with this pain today.
I thought it might be because of the rain yesterday. But then it could be because my lyrica was reduced. Or maybe the amount of emotional stress I have been under. Or maybe the fact that I have been racing to one doctor's appointment and hospital appointment after the other. This new bi pap machine has been driving me crazy.
OK today I could cry. I am hurting in my legs, hips and feet, my usual. Additionally I am hurting in my arms, wrists and fingers too. I am taking my pain meds every three and a half to four hours and have increased my lyrica back to where it almost was before I ran out of my pills and lost my prescription--yes my concentration is that bad.
Today I just sat on the edge of my bed and wanted to cry, but the tears would not come. I feel so defeated. To top it all off, my 72 year old brother is in surgery for an ischemic bowel and they will put in a colostomy and treat him for the infection he has. He is going to ICU. All this came on suddenly.
So, I thought I would come here to my friends and post my little rant and get it off my chest. So, thanks for listening. I am hoping my flare will settle down soon. I have an appointment with my pain dr on Thursday , so maybe she will get my lyrica back up to where it was before. I'm also taking some advil here and there to help with the inflammation I feel in my body. It helps sometimes.
Please pray for me and for my brother too. I think he needs all the prayers he can get. His name is Charley.
God bless all my friends here at Healing Well.
