Hey I just want to see how my fellow pain companions are doing today. How's your day going? Anything good happen? Anything bad? How are you feeling?

Sometimes we just need to talk about nothing with people who understand us.

Well I woke up with my neck hurting all the way from the back of my head down my neck into my rt shoulder, and down my back thru my rt shoulder blade. My lower back aching with little quick stabbing pains, down my rt thigh.across my pelvic girdle and tailbone. My throat is sore and my sinuses are drain other that that I'm having a good day.

My day... My doctor pushed me doing the SCS trial, so I did. I loved it! So I said I wanted to do the implant. I have to have cervical and lumbar. Well the only doc around that does cervical implants does not take WC. Now I am having to wait for them to try in find a doc to do it. WHY would you push something that you can't follow thru with? Why would they not know that this doctor that he uses to do the actual implants doesn't take WC. I'm so frustrated.

197 - I'm glad you pulled something positive out of the doctors appt. My day has been filled with stress about bills and pain but I've been reading, listening to music and watched a Netflix movie to try and keep myself calm.
Serena - I hope you get some relief tonight
Weezie - Wow you have a lot of things going on today. I know it's hard to find light in all the dark so I hope you can get some relief.
CRPS - I would also be very frustrated and pissed off that the docs got my hope up. I hope you find a doc in your area that is actually able to help you.

Tired, woke up this morning, got ready in 15 min, short for me. My alarm didn't go off, so extra stress, plus last night was my first time sleeping in 3 or more days. Confluence prep has fully started, but luckily no panels yet. As a bonus, I have a theater performance tomorrow that's probably going to be awful. *sigh*

Anyway, I'm just having anxiety and shoulder pain. My day itself was pretty good, need to work on being in the moment.

Ferret - Good luck with your theater performance tomorrow. Let me know how it goes. Sending you calm and pain free vibes

I woke up in bad pain today. The pain was so bad that I had to get out of my recliner at 5:30 AM and take a shower to relieve all the aching muscles. I have been feeling like my whole body is being eat up with arthritis. But I went to my psychiatrist yesterday, and he told me that it is one of the medicines that he put me on. That I was to completely stop it. Sometimes I wonder why I go to them sometimes. But what they are giving me for depression for my pain is working well. But in the meantime the muscles and joints hurt like an 8 and I am marinating myself in biofreeze. If only you can take a bath in it and it would take an affect deeper into your joints but we know it would never do that. But tht would be a real nice feeling.

I am sorry for you guys for the pain that you are going through. I hope you are able to stay postive despite it. That is what I am trying to do. I am able to spend some time with my family today. I was able to make them lunch and watch a movie with them which is more than I am usually able to do with them. So I am happy. My best wishes to you all.

Laysha you are so sweet to ask how everyone else feels! Yesterday was a fairly good day for me. There was a funny between my sister and me. We were texting and she sent me a pic of her daughter & 2 y o granddaughter, who was mimicking her mom's sassy face. It was hilarious, and I commented the baby looked like a "little (our moms name)." She commented back that "everyone says the baby looks like me". My reply was, "well you've looked just like Mama, from diapers to depends." She got the joke and said paybacks coming! Lol

I hope you all have a much better day today. Glad to hear you're trying to stay relaxed Laysha. CRPSsux, Is be very upset too! They should have known that and not mentioned it until they found an alternate doc. Ferretbandit, I oppose your performance was good, and especially fun! Profiler, is the medicine cymbalta? I was on it, and that's exactly how it did me, plus the suicidal thoughts. I hope you feel better than yesterday.

Bless you all! 🙏🌼

Hey Laysha!! Thanks for checking in with us. Didn't sleep and was up until 5am so I'm tired. The weather is really weird so I'm hurting but all in all in a good mood. I have been on here checking in on my peeps and that always raises my spirits (especially if I can make someone else feel better). Hope you're having a good day yourself and that everyone is having a peaceful day with less pain. 🌻🙏🏻

Profiler - I hope you have a better day today. Sometimes it feels like the doctors aren't any help. Just there to piss you off.

Flappys - it's great that you had a funny moment with your sister. It's the little things that can help lift your spirits. Have a great day.

Always - Oh no. I know how getting no sleep will make your pain 10x worse. Besides your pain, I hope you stay in a good mood and have a great day.
