The secrets of pain: My Truth. Please can i park this here for a bit...


The secrets of pain: My Truth.

Everything echoes in the night as pain reverberates within me.

Muscles twitch and spark like lightening striking jumping beans in a shallow puddle.

Muscles crawl under the skin like foraging ants.

Spasms clench, grasp and tether me like a tangled knot of sinued threads of old weathered rope.

Head fizzes like a bath bomb dropped into a couldron of confusion.

Memory loss taunts me like cruel playground games.

Joints of over tightened threads unwilling to budge.

Numb legs that resemble a million nettle stings.

Hands that reach with uncoordinated purpose.

Depression imbeded in me like a burnt stain.

Searching aimlessly for the simplest of words through a vast open moorland of fog.

A ceased engine thats been stood in a disregarded graveyard of the mechanical dead.

Not meamt to sound pitiful, I just wanted to offer another insight into the secrets of pain!

Wow!! You have extremely impressive creative writing skills!! Felt like you were writing my "inner" voice screams.

Do you mind if I share this with others? Keep writing it can aid you & others.

Awwww thank you BeezyB.

I felt it was very amateur but at the end of the day its real to me so hey 🤷🏻‍♀️ Absolutely, of course you can share😊. I hope it helps others to express their stories.

Im awaiting yet another neuro appointment 🙄 I think i might take this with me....

Dx can be long journey 4 us! Mine was 4 years on initial issues of Ehler Danlos & Fibromyalgia. Then car accident caused whiplash & traumatic brain injury that wasn't recognized by my docs. Yet I kept telling them I had concussion. 2 years out & seeing Neuro who thinks I'm having brain seizures.

Still in Dx mode....

Be YOUR own best advocate is my best advice.

I resemble those remarks!

Its so difficult to express them sometimes isnt it 😔

I have a new muscle twitch/spasm/flicker.....i dont know how to describe it but the intensity is off the charts. Im trying hard to find the words to articulate what i feel.

May i ask, do you have a diagnosis of any neuro kind?
