CatchMyPain Community and Pain Diary App to manage chronic illness

I don't know what to do

I'm having a very bad pain day.. At the moment I'm on the floor with my back brace on waiting for my pain killers to kick in and honestly I've been nonstop crying for an hour.

I really want to call my friend and just vent about how much pain I'm in and I want to tell random strangers that I'm in pain and I don't know why. But I don't because they can't do anything about it and most of them don't even care.

And I know that I can always vent here but it feels wrong because I almost never use this app unless I'm having a bad pain day because if the pain is manageable, I usually try my best to ignore it and using this app (even when replying to other's posts) is a reminder of the pain. I feel awful about coming here just to get support and not giving it as much as I can..

Yes don't feel bad. I find it comforting to know there are others who really DO understand.

We have all been exactly where you are and truly understand. Free venting is allowed here. Hope your medications have helped by now.
