Up all night and just done

Jul 20, 2015 5:00 AM

Morning all. It's 5:49am and I'm still up. Been up most of the night and been going up and down the stairs to the bathroom every hour or so. We only have one bathroom in this house. I am acutely aware of each and every joint and muscle and nerve in my body and the pain is beyond any meds that I can even think of. I have pain management at 9:00 and have no idea as to how I'm going to shower and get myself dressed. It's already 85 degrees and very humid and going up to 103 by this afternoon. That sure is not helping. It's going to be like this a couple more days but it's been raining since Tuesday so the longer the weather holds, the worse I get. By the time I get back from the doctor, I'll be bedridden. Of all things my to cage is really hurting badly today all the way around and my sternum is so sore the thought of putting on a bra is unnerving. One good thing I can say is that I've been getting all normal BP readings this week. (YAY!) I so wish there was a better way. I'm absolutely miserable. I hope the rest of you have a peaceful and pleasant day. I send out gentle hugs to all for lite pain and a happy day. πŸ’•πŸ˜πŸŒ»

Oh no :( Are you able to skip a shower and just wash yourself with a sponge? Stay strong and keep smiling. Best of luck for today, really hope the pain eases for you. Gentle hugs β™₯ xxx

SarahJane87, thanks for the hugs, I really, really need them today. I suppose I could take a sponge bath but it will take me almost as long so I may as well just shower. If I look like hell, at least I'll smell good... LOL!!! Just have to keep telling myself I can do it. I am so nauseated by the pain, I just keep feeling like I'm going to throw up and I feel very week and not completely with it. I'm glad the doctor's office is only 5 minutes away. Hoping not to have to wait long and then I can hit the pharmacy, come home, take meds and hope to ease this. I'm having a hard time holding the cell phone and typing this... Pathetic😒

Alwayzinpain try eating a few saltine crackers my mother in law when she was nauseated would and like ten mins be less nauseated worth a try I know sounds funny but worked for me too

Thanks, Eddie... Have done that and they do work. I know many women have used them for morning sickness. I'm trying not to cry because I know it will just make it worse but I'm at that point of pain, frustration and exhaustion that I don't know what to do with myself. Anxiety rising and the whole thing sucks. If I ask for someone in the house to runny back, I get 60 seconds or less and then I hear, "ok?" What am I going to say??? I can't afford a massage or I'd sure book one today. Even just for gentle rubbing with some lavender oil to relax. Ugh.. Just let it ease soon.😒

AlwayZ, I'm so sorry you've had a horrible night and day. I hope after you saw the doc you were able to go home, ease the pain and sleep a little if not a lot. A massage would be wonderful if you could get one. Hugs & prayers you'll feel much better soon! This crazy weather is rough on everyone from what I'm reading. Sweet dreams! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Hope tomorrow is a better day for you 🌸

AlwayZ how are you doing I was just thinking of you and said a prayer for you

Oh Always is there anyone who could drive you and take you home and do the pharmacy for you? Hang in there. Watch some fun tv. Nothing too thought provoking. Very gentle hugs to you.

Thanks everyone. I'm still quite tired but have to say that my pain levels are not quite as bad as they were. I'm still very aware of all my joints and I'm extremely stiff but I actually did get some rest last night. Hoping that by tomorrow I'll feel better. Thanks for the prayers and the hugs, etc.. I Send them all right back to all of you. My community pain family, because without you, I don't know how I'd get through my day. You all help me more than you know and I thank God for the day I found this app. I hope you all have a peaceful and happy day with minimal pain and sunshine in your hearts. Love, Prayers and Hugs to you all... πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

And the same right back to you AlwayZ! πŸ™πŸŒΌ
