Such a bad day. My pain took control all day. Had stuff that must be done. Thought I was going to disgrace myself by passing out at the checkout line in the grocery store. So much pain. I tried to get some control back with PT exercises, but it was too big. Had to lay down. Used the tincture. After a few hours I had to make dinner something fast as I was having trouble standing. Doc told me I would get worse. It is so scary. I am Trying to think through pudding fog, too. Forgot how to use my debit card at the store. Pain makes me stupid. Oh joy.

Oh no. Can you rest for the next while or are you booked up?
I hope you get some relief soon and some down time to recover from your day

Working on a commission, but after 5 spelling errors & lettering on the the wrong line, I gave it up. Thank goodness it was on the layout & not the final piece. Yes, I believe I need to rest. And meditate on all the blessings in my life. I don't want to lose myself to the beast.

Silver, the fog sets in on me when I'm overwhelmed. And having pain this bad is certainly overwhelming enough. Please rest and try to relax. Hopefully your pain level will decrease. Sending hugs & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Thank you both. It helps to hear from those who understand. 😊

The fog and wobbly were bad for me too, today. Partly because I didn't sleep well b/c nighttime pain and partly from medication. Heartfelt sympathy for the frustration of not being able to think straight.

Dr told me hydration helps with the fog, ymmv though.
