I hurt today, but what else is new...well I would say I'm in the process of a flare so to speak. I have not been sleeping well. I took an Ambien CR last night and it did not put me to sleep. Had to end up taking an Adavant about 2 hrs later so I had little to no sleep.
We all now that no sleep = Pain...its just so darn hard sometimes getting up, getting myself ready for work, coming to work, leaving to go home, and pretty much drag myself to bed. On days far and in between I'm feeling ok enough to cook and do some cleaning up. I just really hate how just because I'm not in tears and walking around with my hand to my head looking like I'm going to faint.....everyone assumes I'm okay. I'm not my fingers hurt, my feet hurt (new since about 6 months or so ago) my back and legs hurt, my knees hurt and my neck hurts too. And of course I'm sleepy as all get out. I know I'm fortunate that I can still work everyday, I'm truly blessed and I know it. But sometimes, I just want to start crying and say I'm hurting leave me alone. Your parents, even spouse, kids, they can all be sympathetic, but unless you walk the walk, you just don't really understand, except you all. I also have been trying to not take as much pain med's so this is the first I've taken something today. Praying it kicks in soon. Today was a very un productive day for me. But there is always tomorrow.
Thanks for listening to me.
