Blah feeling and really bad pain

Jul 27, 2018 11:30 PM

I don’t know what’s going on lately but I’ve been feeling blah, or empty... I’m really not sure what it is. I just have no energy at all and my stomach hurts, along with my back it hurts so bad it numb. I force a smile and pretend to be ok and in a good mood but all I really want is to go home and not bother, climb into my bed and sleep. But like at night I can’t sleep so I toss and turn and in the last 5 days I’ve gotten maybe 10-12 hrs of sleep. I tired of the no stop pain, I can’t take it anymore.

I'm sorry you're in so much pain. Have you tried anything? Heat, ice, TENS unit, Epsom salt soak?

I don’t know you. What I do know is that my pain has at times been all consuming! Focus is so hard. I use Lamaze breathing like I tried with childbirth! If your pain is all consuming, find something or someone else to put your energy into! Hobbies, reliving an old passion of yours, helping someone else in need. These all have and will continue to work for me. Prayers from others are comforting! Your pain; your decision!
