Pain and insomnia

Haven't found the right mix of meds and yoga yet. I hurt so bad, just dreading going into work. Pray for me group please!

Insomnia is not fun. We don't need extra hours we have to deal with pain alone wishin we were sleeping like everyone else. I'm sorry you have to deal with this now, I've had it for a couple years now and I watch tv during these hours hoping to distract my mind from the pain. I read in an article that playing virtual reality games helps extreme burn unit patients at hospitals with their pain by up to 80%! I'm hoping that playing video games might help, I'm getting my moms playstation3 for Christmas, maybe that'll help! I'm praying that you get some low pain hours and sleep! We can get through this!

Insomnia is not fun, I usually only get 3-4 hours a week if that. Hang in there something will come up.
