Pain talk

Jul 29, 2014 1:08 PM

I hate talking about pain, especially with family members. The closer the worser. I have a family member who is fluent in pain talk, it is like getting my ears drilled. I scream "shut up" in my head, really loud. So I say nothing about myself, I literally want to die with what I have been going through for the past couple of years. In fact most of my memories are are paired up with, "oh ya, that day I couldn't walk cus my back hurt so bad". A large majority of my days end with, "I need to go to the ER", but I don't even know what I would say. I am hoping this app will help with my doctor. I am so tired of trying to explain my pain to him. Where is the fix it switch already? Negativity and sarcasm is what I have become as I grind my teeth down to nothing. This isn't who am, or is it?
