A bad day…

Today was a really painful day.  I don’t know what brings it on, but for about two hours I couldn’t sit, lay down, stand up or anything. I thought someone was going to call the police because I was screaming so loudly from the pain – if you can imagine that.  I was home by myself and didn’t know what to do. I don’t know why I didn’t want to take the pain medication.  I guess I hate medication that much.  “It’ll go away” I kept telling myself.  Well it did go away, but it came back and then I took the pain meds.  Why didn’t I take them earlier – I will next time! 

We also heard about the bed.  After calling to cancel our order, we finally heard from the salesman. The mattress should be here tomorrow evening!  I don’t know whether to get excited about that or not.  I’ve heard it before.  I’ll let you know!  🙂

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know how today went, and to ask for prayer for pain.  I try to be so strong, thinking I can just deal with it, but I need to recognize that sometimes I can’t.  

Thank you,

    Well, yay on the bed status, but booo on the pain. I know at this point, you’ve got to have a pretty negative relationship with all drugs; but don’t let yourself suffer unnecessarily when you’ve got pain meds staring you in the face. Remember, God created (wo)man and (wo)man developed drugs… that can’t be THAT bad, now can they?! 😉 We’ll keep praying, but you keep doing what you need to in order to manage your pain… and your sanity.
