Now? Such a huge spike in pain that I had to go lay in my bed.
#MySpoons are doing the angry dance. Extra dose of barely-helpful meds to the....

What’s is it called when something doesn’t help but might prevent a situation from getting worse?

To the that. I can’t even say “rescue.”
The worst pain is at the back of my legs. What interesting thing can I do laying in my stomach without a partner?

I’m tired of reading, podcasts, tv, music. I want to write.
Maybe if I use a notebook.
People who are not in #ChronicPain don’t understand. Some of them ask howI can stay in bed all day.

It’s preventative. I pay a price to sit up, just to sit up.
And it’s so frustrating- the one thing you’ll want to do when someone tells you that you can’t do something? Is that thing.
My favorites are the ones who say “must be nice” - I think we should be allowed to whack them with our canes.

And then say “what? I thought you were jealous of my pain?”
