Don't know what to do

Aug 07, 2016 8:46 AM

Every single morning I wake up in. Really bad pains and all day I cry , pain keeps me crying until I go to bed.
Thought 4 weeks of vacation would help but i guess I was wrong.
Tomorrow is first day back at work and I don't know if I can get out of bed due to the pain, not only work starts tomorrow but my online course as well.
Sorry for whining but I am in so bad pains I don't even know how I'll get stuff done at home😭

Foxypanda84, your allowed to whine. Don't worry about it, we all know what it's like to be where you are. I wish there was something I could tell you to make it better. I have been living in pain 24/7/365 for the last 25 years and have had 30 surgeries in the last 23 years. I haven't worked in a long time and I wish I could but the pain and my body just won't allow it. What kind of doctors have you been to? Have they given you any diagnosis as to what is causing your pain? If you haven't been diagnosed, that's the first thing you need to do. If you have been, had the doctor given you any meds that help take the edge off so you can function? If not, perhaps a pain management scenario is in order. Let us know what's happening with you. In the meanwhile, welcome to our family community. Know that you are never slob and you are amongst people who get it and understand what it's like to be hurting constantly.

Hang in there, I'm sure you'll meet many people here that are willing to help as I am.

Alwayzinpain: thanks for your kind words, been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (2-4 years ago fibro brain :p)
They had me on cymbalta and atarax I think it was called , any who the cymbalta took the pain away for two hours then I woke up to sever stomach pain and I womited blood so I never took em again, and the other one just helps me with allergies tho they where supposed to help me with pain :/.
Went to the pain clinic here (I'm in Sweden born and raised πŸ˜‰)
But as I work about 25 hours/ 4 days a week I couldn't keep going there as money was an issue so I had to choose work or pain (bad choise I know)
But I'm Gona book up a time at the local doctors office to see what they can do for me in regards of meds.
Guess my body is feeling my nervousness of going back to work after vacation and topping it with a year of distance schooling to get my preschool teacher license.
So I'm on high 24 seven feeling nervous and my confidence isn't so good about school as I allso have fear of Beeing in large groups of ppl and tomorrow I have to be as the school has mandatory information day and I guess In the future also some tests you have to do in there facility's.

So of to bed I go and tomorrow 4 hours work and then of to school I go eeeeekkkk so nervous.

Big warm but gentle hugs to you and again thank you so much,
Makes me feel atleast better in my head even tho the pain doesn't go away πŸ’•πŸ˜˜πŸ˜Š

Welcome Foxypanda84! I'm sorry for what you're going through. I'm having fog brain real bad myself right now. Just know you're in a great supportive community family, and we're here for each other. I truly hope you can get some help from your local doc real soon. I've been battling fibro for 9+ years, along with many other issues. We all understand chronic pain. Hugs, love, & prayers! PS, I've always wanted to come to Sweden. I guess I should have when i was younger & healthier. Lol πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ
