Pain: Begone

Sunday, August 08, 2010

I wish it were that easy.

I am taking a moment to vent, to relieve the frustration may at least help to release some of the stress of pain.

The weather is gorgeous, the sun is shining, it is hot, but not too hot. The sky is beautiful, blue with white puffs of Toy Story clouds. The sunshine felt good on me. The air conditioning is not so kind. It hurts.

But it is not just the AC, it is "one of those days" when it doesn't matter what I do, or how I sit, lie down, or stand, it hurts. It is one of those days when nothing much matters. It kind of takes control.

Even the things I do, like chatting online, or playing a game, reading the paper or a book, do not seem to take my mind off it. $#X?!

It just hurts. Specifically - my neck into my right shoulder. Now, my right arm is beginning to act like my left - weak as a newborn kitten.
I don't like to complain, but blogging at least does seem to let some of the pressure off my brain any way. My head hurts from this too. I woke up this way. In fact, I went to bed this way, and woke up almost this bad yesterday.

Perhaps it will let up, and I will feel better tonight.
It has to by tomorrow, or I won't be able to drive to get to work.

After logging my "stuff" - food, since I cannot do a lick of fitness today, I think I will allow myself the pleasure of drifting into a nap with the hopes that the pain will ease.

Symphony in pain (complaining in A major)
accompanied by minor apology for griping.

    Yes pain can totally wipe you out. I hope you get some relief from it soon. My husband is in chronic pain all the time and myself quite a bit with arthritis in my right leg. I hope you feel better soon as it isnt any fun

    I'm sorry to hear that you are still hurting! I know the feeling-I am still sore too. Have you seen the doctor yet? I am going to call the doctor tomorrow to see what is going on. Take care & I hope you feel better soon! Kim

    Did you over-do it with the weeding and the cleaning? It sounds like you might have a pinched cervical disc. I hope you find relief soon. The weather is too nice to being feeling so achy!
