The pain... ah yes.
Well, I often had to get down on the floor on all fours and just breathe through it.
Sometimes I'll just rest through it.
Sometimes I'll call the local nurses hotline to see if I should go to emerg.
Sometimes I'll pop extra strength tylenol all day long for days at a time.
Most of the time, I just put up with it, keep my chin up and think that old saying, "Things can always be worse".
What kind of pain meds are there anyway? Anything to make you happy and relaxed too? LOL ;-)
