I’m Such a Bitch, I Can’t Stand Myself

First of all, I want to let you know I've got a very touching story for tomorrow's post. Next, I want to warn you, today I'm going to bitch like crazy and then ask for your advice.  Sound like fun?

Do you ever feel so bitchy you can't stand yourself?  

My surgeon told me if I ever feel like I'm "about to take somebody's head off" because I'm in so much pain, it's definitely time for a pain pill.  I've been right there for a few weeks now, but I'm not taking any meds.

I'm really pleasant to be around lately, let me tell ya.

I was at PT five times last week, including on Saturday.  I want to scream.  I want to cry. I want to throw things.  

I'm not in control of my emotions when I'm in this much pain.

Really, all my "real life" friends should just stay far, far, away from me until I get my pain level back under control.  They've even put me back on a home electrical stim unit to try to help.  I want to throw it on the floor and stomp on it.  I thought I was done with all the home machines.

The Torturer is trying to strengthen my arm and all the connecting crap.  None of the muscles in the upper right quadrant of my body have worked for over two and a half years. They are screaming in protest and it's resulting in intense pain, terrible cramping, and muscle spasms.  (In my chest.  In my upper back.  Along my torso.  And, of course, in my arm, neck and shoulder.)  

It fucking hurts.  

My doctor warned me I would go through this as they try to bring my muscles back to life.

What a fine time for me to decide to forego pain killers.

I haven't taken pain killers daily in months.  I am, however, used to taking one at night on my tougher PT days, or when The Torturer introduces new (painful) things to my routine.

The Torturer understands my desire to be drug free and supports it.  "You can't take them forever," he says.  This, of course, implies what I don't want to accept.  It implies I will need them forever; that I will be in pain forever.  I'm still stubbornly fighting my own reality and it pisses me off when people try to confront me with the truth.  

Sometimes accepting the truth is devastating to a person's spirit.

I like living in denial.  It gives me … hope.

On Monday The Torturer and I fought like only we can.  It was not a pretty sight.  I suppose I'm being a little bit difficult.  (Oooh … I can hear him saying, "That's an understatement!")  I alternated between tears of defeat, trying to express my intense frustration, and being just plain pissed off at him.  

I'd say he was a little frustrated with me.  And angry.  He was very angry with me.  (He's not exactly a piece of cake personality, and of course, I am.)

He feels like I'm fighting him and not cooperating lately.  Maybe because I've threatened to quit?  Or asked to be reassigned to a different physical therapist?  If you ever want to make The Torturer really angry, just say either of those two things and watch him implode.  

Or you could say both, on the same day, like I did.  Then you can watch him turn shades of purple (!) while he stomps around repeatedly saying things like, "QUIT?! Did you say QUIT?!  Fine, go ahead and QUIT!  You can just walk around with your arm dangling at your side for the rest of your life."  

And, "No, you are absolutely NOT going to a different physical therapist after all the time I've put in getting you this far."  

Blah, blah, blah.

Okay, so I'm a bitch.

Have we established that?

A few of the other PTs and patients looked on in abject horror as we argued.  It's not fun being everyone's entertainment.  At one point The Torturer turned to one of his PTs and said through gritted teeth, "I am SO mad at 24 right now."  I really think he was considering picking me up and tossing me out the window.  I turned to the same PT and countered with, "He is soooooo pissing me off today!"  The PT raised her eyebrows and wisely excused herself from our presence.

The Torturer then ordered me back to "my" room where we carried on our arguing in private.  (Except for the occasional yelling people heard through the door.) 

So, this is what it comes down to.  I need help with pain management in order for The Torturer to continue strengthening my dysfunctional body torturing me.  I'd prefer to do it in a drug free manner.  I may need to deal with pain for the rest of my life but I don't want to believe that yet.  

Hands over ears lalalalalalalalalalala. 

It has to be effective pain management.  I don't want any bullshit about listening to monks chant for an hour every morning.  If I listened to monks chant for an hour every morning I'd turn violent within thirty five minutes. 

Monks give me intense headaches.

No offense to all the monks in my reading audience (and/or their monk family members). 

Monk music is just not my thing.

The Torturer is suggesting acupuncture for pain relief.  (Most likely, it gives him a big thrill to think of someone sticking me with needles.)  It isn't the first time acupuncture has been suggested to me since the car accident.  I admit, I haven't pursued it as an option because the idea of all those needles scares me a little.

I know, it makes no sense.  I've gone through five surgeries and pure hell, but I'm afraid of needles?  Also, I'm tired of people poking and prodding and pulling and pushing on me.

What do you think?  Have you tried acupuncture?  Has someone you know tried it?  Do you know of success stories?  Or cases where it didn't work?  Is this something I should try?

    Definitely try it. You barely feel the needles. There’s a tapping sensation and the needles are so skinny that all you feel is the tension of the needle on your skin, but there’s no pain or stinging. A walk in the park for someone like you… And you may get some relief from it. (Just close your eyes.)

    As I read your post, i was thinking acupuncture. It’s amazing.
    Back in her cheerleading days, when they were talking surgery for Lo, I took her for acupuncture on her torn meniscus, it eased the pain to such an extent she was able to continue her senior year without the surgery.
    Ask her about it.

    I am not going to be any help cuz I am of the mindset that pain meds are good if they stop the pain. If you can use them without abusing them and they help regulate your pain, I don’t see why not.
    Pain does NOT define us as a strong person. You may always need something to help you deal with pain – so what? You are human and deserve to be as pain free as possible.

    Pain fucking sucks. I HATE it. I totally get where you are coming from. In a recent round of intense pain all I wanted to do was put a gun to my head and be done with it. I know I am no fun to be around when I am in the middle of this either. Accepting the truth of living a life in pain is an ugly pill to swallow…there are days I choke on it…there are days I violently vomit it out and say no fucking way.
    Accupuncture does help and I would recommend it to you. When I was able to get it, it helped me. The only reason I don’t get it now is because work comp refuses to pay for it and I cannot afford to get it regularly like I would need. When I finally get a settlement out of this whole fricken deal, I plan on using money I get from this to get accupunture.
    I am sorry that you have to live in this way. I am sorry that it has been so intense that you feel like giving up. I hope you don’t though…I hope you keep seeking out ways to make your life better. For me, it’s the only choice I can make that makes sense. I wish I lived by you so that we could fight this together and I could give you a hug right now and tell you that I do understand because I do. Hugs and love, Lori
    PS please know that you can vent to me any time!

    Yes, I know what it is like to be such a bitch that even I can’t stand to be around me, but mine is hormonal. (I knew you were having a bad time at PT when I saw your comment yesterday – I wanted to let YOU loose on the damn groundhog).
    At any rate, I have never tried acupuncture myself, but I have heard that it is an effective method of dealing with chronic pain, especially for those who do not want to take pain meds or are in danger of becoming dependent on them. I’d give it a whirl if I were you – what have you got to lose? And if it works, think what you’ll have gained.
    Love you, woman – you know where to find me if you need to talk, or even vent some more.

    We’ll I’ve been enjoying your blog for some time now, so I guess it’s about time I leave a comment.
    My husband suffers from chronic back pain and many years ago decided to ditch the pain meds. Whenever the pain gets unbearable he goes for acupunture. He says that it really helps with the pain.
    Maybe it’s worth trying?

    I have heard amazing things about acupunture from my clients (although I have never tried it myself). My other suggestion in massage (being an LMT myself). I wouldn’t go for anything too deep but something more reaxing to help take the stress off…
    Good luck. I am incredibly inspired by your actions to go “drug free”. I think you can do it – no, I KNOW you can do it 🙂

    24, I’m no help at all on the acupuncture question, I’ve never had it. But I agree with one of the other commenters, if you need the pain medication, use it. That doesn’t mean you are abusing it. But having said that, I do agree that so many people do become addicted to pain meds and it destroys their lives. But it is a decision you have to make because ultimately, it will affect your family too. I so wish you were pain free (or at least in tolerable pain). I’m praying for you.

    I’ve never tried it, but I hear great things from friends who have. Can I just say? “No offense to all the monks in my reading audience.” And “Monk music is just not my thing.” about made me lose it. Even with pain like you’re in right now – you make us laugh. Sending many hugs your way!

    I would try it. I have a friend who was in a car accident a few years ago and she is in constant neck and back pain. I mean, CONSTANT. She finally went to this “Chiropractor”. She lovingly refers to him as “wacko cracko”. But regardless she is in significantly less pain now a days. Its worth a shot, right?

YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO YELL AT THE TORTURER. i know he’s going to break my arm now and then charge me a gazillion dollars in PT after he reads this. but. seriously. my PT? i HATED THE MAN. oh, lordy, did i hate him… i broke my tailbone and effed up my right knee (it’s still not okay) and i had to go for four years. i hated that man. i hated that fucking round ball. what the fuck does it DO????? i hated having to go to PT after school instead of the beach. hate. hate. hate. the hate ate me up.
    acupuncture not only helps physically buti t helps mentally as well. it’s very calming. you don’t feel anything. just don’t look as they do it… it kinda freaked me out visually, and i’m TOTALLY not afraid of needles.

    Sounds like acupuncture is the way to go.
    But having said that, is taking a pain pill at bedtime totally out of the question? The cycle of pain and stress and pain feeds on itself – a pill at night might help enough to give you a chance to catch your breath and pull out of the abyss. The pills and the home stim machine would only be temporary, just until you can get your feet under you.
    An anecdote: I tried to go off of my antidepressants once because I HATED the notion that I would have to take them for the rest of my life.
    It was a Very. Bad. Idea.
    It took awhile for me to accept the I needed those drugs, but I finally did and life is normal again.

    RUN do not walk to get the needles. You will be so happy and be mad at yourself for not going sooner. They can be uncomfortable, but they don’t hurt. And considering all the pain you have been in, having to tolorate the needles while they put them in will be cake!

    I think you’re entitled to be a bitch now and then. My grandmother used acupuncture for pain relief years ago. She had very good results. She’s the only one I know who has tried it.

    I have a friend who is doing it now,
    she has carpul tunnel syndrom. I don’t think I spelled that right, anyway, she says it is helping. I also am afraid of needles, she says you don’t really feel them unless you try to move the area they are doing. She said when they put it on her hands if she tries to move her fingers, (just to see what it felt like) then it hurt pretty bad.
    so don’t move when you do it.

    Does all the pain as your muscles get encouraged to wake up mean they are waking up? I am sure you could bear it better if you could believe the pain was productive. As for acupuncture, I’ve never tried it (I’m a wuss about needles). But I think there is good evidence for it and I know people who swear by it. I say, Go for it.
