Just getting off my chest today's events

Ok so went hospital for my ankle and no it's not broken but a very bad sprain. The advice the doc gave me was to put it back on floor to make it heal quicker. Haha yeah alright then I would if I could. Ahhhhhhh so frustrating why do people always make u feel like your making up the pain? It's not there is it ? It's all in my head isn't it? That's how I felt today. The meds don't seem to be touching any of my pain at all at mo, hopefully next week at docs she can give me something that actually helps.

Anyone else ever feel like this? Or is it my anxiety and depression showing it's face some more.

I feel like this a lot. Its hard to express my pain with people because they just dont understand. My left ankle feela like it is forever sprained and i cant stand on it most of the time. People look at me like im crazy because i look fine.

I have the same problem with pain meds, I've been looking for anything that helps for three years now. The doctors have kind of given up on me and have told me to "just learn to live with it". Not the easiest thing to do! My pain has gotten worse the past week so I'm also waiting to hear from my doctor about trying new meds.

It's so frustrating just feel like I'm fighting a losing battle
