//Another painful day. Not as bad as yesterday so far but quite close due to the fact that it’s not a rainy day. The entire length of the right side of my back is one giant knot. I have a menthol rub and a heating pad on it right now and I’ve been doing my stretches. I’ve been out of my pain meds (marijuana- I’m allergic to all opioids and tylenol and 800mg ibuprofen don’t even take the edge off it. Marijuana is literally the only thing that eases the pain to a tolerable level) so this week has been godawful with pain. I haven’t had a day in over 7 years below a 5 out of 10 on the pain scale. I’ve had to learn to mask pain very well. This past week or so its been a constant 8 or 9. It hurts to breathe.
I can’t afford my pain meds. So until I can get a spare $90 to get a few days worth, I’m gonna be pretty useless. It really sucks living with chronic pain. Because if I had a steady stream of my pain meds, I wouldn’t go through it so fast when I do get them. Playing catch up isn’t any fun because it drains my supply in a few days and then I’m back to square one.//
