It’s An Imperfect World

I saw Dr. Painless yesterday.

Yes, I'm having another severe pain flare-up.

Last time I saw Dr. Painless, he gave me a drug called Nucynta which worked very well for me.  I was ecstatic.  Finally, a drug that truly worked and took away the pain!

Unfortunately, I also suffered some severe side effects and had to discontinue using it pretty quickly.  

Finding drugs strong enough to handle my pain without horrible side effects, that I can function on, is a challenge.

In any case, I'm trying Fentanyl Patches and a few other things now.

A part of me is giving up the fight.

I feel defeated right now because I'm in a lot of pain.  There never really seems to be an answer for it either.

At the same time,

I know I will rally again, like I always do.

Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow with a brighter outlook.

In the meantime, it seemed fitting today to share with you this photo.

I've taken to titling my photos recently.

    I’m so sorry you are dealing with this continual struggle to be comfortable!… It would seem with modern medicine there would be an easy solution and yet so many struggle with the side effects of medicine. I have acid reflux besides the hearing loss which also causes anxiety which causes muscle spasms in my back and neck, which causes reflux – on it goes… and ALL the reflux drugs make me sicker than the reflux itself. It’s a circle jerk.
    I hope your new regimen helps alot without the bad effects.

    I don’t know how you do it. Hang in there. My sister is also on a fentynal patch and it seems to help a lot without leaving her too impaired. Maybe someday shoulder replacements will be as common as knee replacements.

    Dr. Medicinal Mary Jane helps with pain. Is one of my favorite rhymes. 😉
