Just figured I'd gripe for a few. I'm in so much pain right now (physical). I feel so hopeless about the future being painless. It gets better then worse. I don't know what to do. Pain specialist appt in about a week but so far away. Trying to take one day at a time but hard .

I dunno MoMo. I think some of the prickliness experienced erev Yom Kippur may have something to do with it. I know I have considered (and still do) leaving the site permanently in part due to that and in part due to personal reasons. (I don't feel as dependent on the site anymore.

Hi Munkster~

How is the pain today? Hope it gets better AND STAYS THAT WAY!!!

As far as being a ghost town... I have also considered not coming back - but still do.... and yeah it had lots to do with the Yom Kippur stuff

Just can't be consistent - too much going on in the "real world" :-)

Take care of yourselves

Mumkster I would really be devastated if you left the site...

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

I hear ya guys regarding the staying/leaving issue. Right now I'm in a crabby mood because my neck and arm kill and I can't sleep. Going to urgent care center tomorrow for help. I'm so frustrated. Just wanna curl up and die. It hurts physically too much to bear.

Hard to tell how things are otherwise. Pain kinda clouds everything up badly. A friend of the family died. He was OLD. But still it's sad. Someone without a father and someone without a spouse .

Having a procedure redone. (It was done about four or five months ago and worked.) Hopeful there is an end to pain in sight. Unfortunately the procedure should have last sixx to nine months. Got more loopy meds so off to rest now. In a lot of pain from the poking and prodding.

Feeling so sick today. It feels like it won't end. I'm nauseous because the pain is out of control . I hope this ends soon.

Thanks Tbear....not a bad idea to try. The thing I find reassuring is that the pain is indicative of a nerve gone awry...not anything deadly. It just HURTS . But knowing it isn't going to kill me helps. (As suicidal as I get, I want to go on MY terms not Hashem's.)

Figured I'd give an update...I survived the procedure yesterday. It wasn't so bad as it wasn't the procedure I expected. It was a permanent fix that I expected...I got the temporary fix . Hopefully it will last longer than the 1 wk that I had last time with this temporary procedure. I'm getting seriously annoyed with my situation and impatient for a good "fix" to it. I guess I have to hope that this time I'll be pain free longer.
