Daytime pain

Jun 20, 2017 7:55 AM

I'm having a horrid day. Woke up to wording to continue pain from activity and weather. And I'll ne honest I really dont want to be wake right now. Distractions seem as it it will be not helpful. How bad would it be to take a sleeping pill during the day. I just really dont want to feel this pain.

Newfibrogirl2 You sound very low and I can understand why you want to go back to sleep and taking a sleeping tablet will probably make you sleep but won't necessarily help your pain. Have you pain medication that you can take and try something to distract you even tho you think it won't help. I find when I feel like you do listening to the radio helps as it takes little effort. Do you feel like this often? It might be you need to have your meds reviewed but also to talk to someone about your mood. I don't want you to think I'm prying or being dramatic and I obviously don't know you but the language you're using sounds as if you could be depressed. Please think about talking to someone.

Hectorsmum thank you for your input. I appreciate it. I do have tramadol I use for pain although the prescribed amount doesn't do much for this level of pain. I do have a counlser I see every few weeks except now she is on vacation. So it's gonna be August when I see her again. She did tell me to text or call her if something comes up during this time but I dont want to interrupt her time off.
I can agree that I am a nit down. I do have some relaxation apps i could try and at this point I'll do most anything if it will work.
I dont think you sounded dramatic at all again thank you for your response.
