Am sorry. When our pain is elevated for a prolonged period our emotions are exacerbated. (is that the right word? My brains not working..) I have often thought if I ever started screaming I would never stop.

(((gentle hugs))) be kind to yourself. Breathe.

Oh MysticMum, I'm sorry you're feeling badly. I've had several meltdowns myself over the last few days. It'll be ok. Here's my hand for you to hold as well as my shoulder for you to lean on (just lean gently or it will dislocate... LOL!!). I'm here and so is the rest of the community. Sending lots of love, {{{Hugs}}} and positive vibes your way. 💕😊😘

Thanky you Alwayzinpain... much appreciated. I need to come to terms with it all still, I get frustrated with myself too much

Don't feel bad most of us have those moments. Yesterday morning after the 4 th consecutive day of intense pain and very little sleep, I broke down sobbing uncontrollably and cried out why am I still here? Sometimes it just overwhelms you and you just have to act out. We are all here for you and at sometime or another been there...done that etc 💜

I also had a meltdown yesterday night . It is 5 am in Sydney and the pain will not let me sleep. Meds are not helping. Had cortisone in piriformis muscle a week ago but it appears it has not worked. The specialist confirmed what I suspected all along - It was the piriformis all along and not my back ! So after two surgeries and a hip operation the pain continues . Now the slightest emotional outburst I'm riddled with nerve pain and my whole left leg is on fire. I feel your anguish .

MysticMum, I'm sorry. I'm having one today due to yesterday's stress. I want time to reverse and not exist at this very moment, because I'm tired of dealing. Hugs love and prayers for you & all...we will get through it all together!

Sometimes I feel like this is a double-edged sword. I am so very glad that you guys "get" it but it leaves me heartbroken at the same time. Pain - induced meltdowns come with the territory in my experience... which completely stinks.

We all deserve a melt down sometimes.. i just hope you're feeling better afterwards. Gentle hugs
