Well, I will start with the rant... I started on my new pain medication today. My pain Dr has switched me from percocet 10 to MSIR 15mg, which turns out to be morphine sulfate IR (I am pretty sure that means immediate release). I AM NOT IMPRESSED!!😬 I guess I had kinda gotten my hopes up a little bit that this time this pain medicine might actually give me some relief. Boy, was I wrong! I hurting more now than I was before! This is such a frustrating and cruel process we have to go through, just to try to live a somewhat functioning life. I am hoping that if I give it a few more days it will get better as it builds up in my system. If not, I see my pain Dr on Tuesday.
On to the I am proud of myself....
As of today I have been a NON-SMOKER for a whole month!!! I used electronic cigarettes to quit... And I have nearly weaned myself completely off of nicotine also. I would predict I will be nicotine free within about 1 week! I didn't think I would ever be able to quit! I guess when u hurt bad enough and your insurance company says they won't pay for surgery because you smoke (among other stupid reasons) it gives you a lot of motivation!!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful night & day with good sleep and no pain! You are all very special people to me! Stay strong! 💪😆
