I can't describe how disappointed I am to have only lasted eight days without the patches. My partner had to force me to admit that I couldn't function.

I hate the tears of pain, the sense of being defeated by my muscle spasms and the pain that we all could write symphonies about... Not air on a G string! ;)

I've been up for >20 hours, I'm so overtired but when I lie down it hurts.

My apologies for the moan but OWW. I'd like some sleep now.

Hi, I have pain meds and take them. I couldn't get through the day without them. I know there are some who the side effects are to much to handle, is that you? Sorry your in pain. I hope you managed some sleep. Chris x

I'm just exhausted. The prospect of my trip to London for work tomorrow is almost overwhelming. I am travelling by train, but it can take up to 5 hours of travelling for 4-5 hours of work. :(

Thankfully I can work from home a lot of the time.

The pain medication doesn't really knock me sideways, but it takes so long to get back to manageable after a break from the patches.
