Not a good morning

Hi everyone,

This is my first time posting. I think I hit a wall this morning after going to sleep in pain and then waking up and instantly being in pain again. I try really hard to not complain to much about hurting to my guy and especially my kids. I try to mention it in passing like oh my legs hurt today or my skins kind of burning. It's not at though be unsympathetic, because they will it and they'll always try to find a way to help me. I just don't want to seem like I can't handle myself, or all I am is in pain all the time . I do have good days. Today is not one of them. Today I'm sitting in my car crying in the parking lot of a coffee shop before work, because now my kids out of the car and I can do so. I even feel bad complaining to you guys but I feel like you understand. It's just a bad day and I'm tired.

  • Hi Janet, I hope you get a good nights sleep tonight. I take gabapentin at night. Last night I had to add a norco to that to help me sleep, which makes me mad cause I hate giving in. The gaba helps usually. I think I just got frustrated because I can't control how I feel. Thank you for being supportive. It means a lot to me!

  • Hi Liverbelly I completely understand as I worked for as long as I could before having to stop. Don't blame yourself, you didn't ask for this chronic illness and the peculiar symptoms that go with it. Be good to yourself!!
