Broke down and took my pain meds

I know I'm not supposed to take my pain meds, but I just can't take the pain right now. I need to make it till tomorrow so my husband goes to work. Haven't been able to work so money is short 😞 not now it's just not a good time. Thank goodness my parents got Marley some dog food 💕 where would I be without them

Why aren't you supposed to take them? Seems like pain is best treated when you're on top of it and not chasing it.

I was diagnosed with pancreatitis and I'm supposed to feel the pain so I know when to go to the hospital

Jun 23, 2016 10:29 PM

Oh... Does that mean you should go to the hospital soon?

Jun 23, 2016 10:31 PM

If it continues to get worse I will. Just don't want to go until tomorrow

Vizallygirl, I hope you will at least call your doctor this morning, if not going to the hospital. It sounds like the pain level might indicate a needed to go. I do understand wanting your hubby to go to work. But pancreatitis can turn serious in a short amount of time. I'm pretty sure he would prefer you to be taken care of rather than very seriously sick. And if your mom bought dog for I'm almost certain she will also help you out when needed. You must take care of yourself first. I've been through so many surgeries & hospitalizations that I would tell my hubby to go to work. He couldn't help me in the hospital, s and being at work kept his mind away from worrying. Please get this checked out before it worsens. Hugs & prayers for you & your family!! 🙂💕🙏🌼

So far today I'm not experiencing a lot of pain. I will call my doctor I promise. Thank you FlappyLady81

Vizallygirl, please don't let it wait too long. Pancreatitis is nothing to mess with. As Flappsy pointed out, you can become very ill very quickly. I hope that you are healing and you get to feeling better soon. If the pain gets worse though, please go to the ER and don't mess around with it. Sending you well wishes, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you don't need to go to the hospital for your pain. 💕🙏🏻🌻😊
