Well, I'm almost afraid to say this, but I've been pain free for four days. BUT...as I look back on this recent bout...I realize something. As I get older, I don't bounce back as easily as before. It used to be that ONE pain free night mean't the bout was over. Then, I'd sleep for a whole day and go on with my life. The last few years, my neck hurts for weeks after. I get depressed easily when I'm just coming out of it. I walk on tiptoes, wondering if they will sneak back (as they did last week)
This is a firey hell we live in. And sometimes, I realize, no one knows it but us. And boy, does that piss me off. The "glamour" diseases and disorders get lots of press and research. (Remember Chronic Fatigue???) Yet we people who live in suicide-inducing pain have no celebrity spokesperson, no high profile research, and basically no sympathy. (Cause hey...they ARE just headaches ;))
Any body need to talk, I'm semi-sane now and available for beating up, venting, crying or just talking.
PFDAN...to us all. (Except VD)
