just whining...

Oct 12, 2015 6:29 PM

Pain so bad I can barely make a sentence. It's like it's blocking any other signals in my brain. I can't/ don't want to cry bc that will hurt too. This is my second week of physical therapy and I think I'm gonna die. Nothing is even lessening the pain today. I actually yelled so loud at PT when she touched one of my tender points that everyone at the place stopped what they were doing. I just want it to stop. 😞😞😞

Awww, Kittypain, I'm so sorry your pain is that bad. At PT are they using I've or heat? What about at home? Just be safe enough to let the years roll gently down your cheek. Maybe it will help. Sending you gentle (((hugs))) & a prayer your pain will ease up soon, very soon. 🙏🌼

I've = ice
Safe = sad
Years = tears

They only use ice now bc the dry-heat sauna was causing allergic reactions on my skin and in my throat.

Ice seems to help me the most. But, sometimes crying does too. The other day I took a shower and it felt like I had dry shaved my entire body! I went to my room, lie down, and cried. My daughter knocked wanting to know if I was ready to go yet and I told her I was having an "after shower cry", so that's a thing now. Nobody was even surprised by it. I had to go through PT as well... if it hurts, don't do it! PT should not be painful. I just had the joint injections 😨. .. they did helpy back somewhat if II'm careful and I can lie ony sides now for a little while. .. I don't know what your pain issues are but that might be worth looking into.

I don't know what else to say that no one has send so I'm sending you big squishy hugs and I'll pray for you xxxx

It's funny that you said "PT should not be painful" bc everyone I know who's had PT says that's what it is: PAIN. What it shouldn't be is STILL painful 2 days later. I am gonna cut back...

Kitty, PT for me stands for physical torture, not physical therapy.

The thing that made me incredibly upset today about PT is that I found out they may have been doing "reiki healing" stuff on me without my consent or knowledge. This probably wouldn't be a big deal to most people, but the entire eastern "religious healing" stuff to me is not just that I don't believe in it. To me, it's demonic. The fact that they are trying to "manipulate my energies" to me is that they are invoking demonic power to try to heal me. I am in NO way ok with that. My husband and I talked and prayed about it, and if they agree not to do that then I can continue. If they don't, I won't be able to get PT anymore. It's literally the only place in 15 miles of my house that takes my insurance.

Kitty, I don't like Reiki, because my stepmom has wasted 1000s of dollars per year for "training" when she never uses it, and we only make a few thousand dollars a year. She was also convinced it would cure all my pain, when she had never dealt with long term pain. Aaaargh!
