I have days where it feels like life has come up behind me and landed a nasty kidney punch. These are the days where my pain is completely off the chart. I feel all 25 screws in my spine, every prosthetic, every single piece of metal they put in my back. There is no amount of medication or any other type of treatment that can touch it. What does help is going to one of my favorite spots, away from everyone. I'll crank up my metal, be it Lamb of God, Suicide Silence, Pantera, it doesn't really matter. What matters is that my music usually helps me deal with this level of pain where the usual suspects don't. Thank God for Heavy Metal.
