Good morning all. Normal mornings I don't let pain keep me in bed because it's almost always between a 5 or 6 and I can still be productive at that point. I also rarely let my depression keep me in bed either. But this morning I woke up in more pain than normal and very depressed. I could hardly move and kept hitting snooze due to the pain and depression in equal parts. I texted my family to see if they wanted to hang out tonight so that I could look forward to something during the day but never got a reply. So I forced myself up and am in the parking lot of work now. I'm dreading the day though. just needed to vent:// Thanks to everyone for the positivity and encouragement to have a better day!

Haileyann, I am sorry that you are having such a difficult day. I commend you for not letting your depression and pain keep you in bed. I wish I had that kind of tenacity but after 22 years and at this point almost a level 8 pain scale, I just can't. There are days I will push through to do what I need and sometimes I can just about manage a shower. I think that at this time of the year many folks have problems with depression and the fact that the weather is dreary, the loss or missing loved ones who have crossed over, the stress of having everything ready for the holidays, etc. Pain on top of that makes it even more difficult. I am sending you positive vibes, gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers that your day goes smoothly. Perhaps work will be a much needed distraction and may be a good thing. I hope that when you get home you have a restful night and that tomorrow brings a better day with less pain. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Haileyann, I understand where you're coming from. I can't take most pain meds, and try to reserve what I can take for surgeries. I function on a level as high as 6-7 most of the time. But for three weeks straight I've felt worse. Today I'm dragging and napping on and off. I'm about to collapse and fighting to stay awake to finish this post. I hope you're day was better than expected. (((Hugs))) & prayers for you! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸŒΌ

You guys are awesome. You all are very strong people and it's nice to have support when the people that are "supposed" to be around are quite the opposite. Positive vibes and much love to you allβ™‘

Haileyann,Alwayz, and Flappsy I hope y'all are all feeling a little better tonite. I have had a long hard day also ,but I muddled thru thanks to my little ray of sunshine Miss Bella. With her around the day's are brighter being with her. Regardless of how bad I am feeling when I look in her little face she gets the biggest sweetest smiles on her little face when she sees me. It makes it worth every ache and pain to see her smiles.praying y'all are having less pain to nite, sending lots of love and big hugs y'all's way.
