Just realised the x-ray I posted on Monday was back to front, so I've changed it to its correct position. My thoracic curve goes to the right, and my left ribs are squashed because of it, causing my left lung to be crushed and not able to perform correctly. The lumbar curve they managed to straighten curved to the left, so my body was horribly deformed until I had my second surgery πŸ€’πŸ˜·πŸ˜“

Dear bottle of Percocet, I appreciate all you have done, but we're going to part ways in the near future. I'm definitely not a fan of taking pain medication, I didn't take any until post surgery, and I doubt I will take it for much longer.

I fight pain & fatigue daily, but today I really feel like the pain is winning. Pain zaps me of all my energy, motivation, and personality. It's always present but when it's not well managed like today I struggle to move, think, follow conversation or even watch mindless movies or TV. The opioid pain medications that I take daily usually take the edge off enough for me to be able to get out of bed, go to appointments, feel a little more like myself and sometimes even do things I enjoy like paint! But on days like today, my pain meds simply bring my pain down from a constant high-pitched screaming in my ears to more of a steady yelling. I can't escape it even with my "breakthrough" pain meds. I can't imagine how I could live if my pain remained at this intensity without any medication to assist me in obtaining some basic quality of life. I am grateful to my doctors for believing me about my pain and understanding the importance of managing it. They always urge me to take it when needed and avoid underutilizing it the way I too often do out of some sort of weird guilt or unsupported fear generated by the BS overly hysterical dialogue about opioids. I fight to get those voices of doubt about my pain out of my head. My pain is real and severe. I deserve relief from that pain. And taking opioids doesn't make me weak or a "drug seeker" or anything less than the magical badass warrior that I am. These medications help me hold onto "me" in the midst of seemingly unending and dehumanizing pain I too often find myself lost in. Today I'm working to show myself compassion and understanding instead of feeling guilty, lazy or weak for doing nothing but lie in bed all day...

Still recovering from my dental procedure, but slowly starting to feel like my normal self #catsofinstagram #recovering #painmedication #sleepykitty

.ca. you see how swollen is. Ahah this must go so I can carry on without life. I'm a soci person and this demon is taking that away from me. I want to carry on with my diys etc. #pain #painmedication #dentisttomorrow #scared #nervous #prayforme #followme

Today's tarot card and message is needed (and strangely fits with the regrann i just posted πŸ€”). I've seriously overdone it the last two days. Its 1:44am on Sunday. Friday I spent cleaning my apartment top to bottom. Friday night I tried to sleep in my bed for the 1st time in a month that Ive been avoiding because it hurts my back so badly. That didnt work. 3 hours in that bed trying to sleep and I gave up and was nearly crippled. Saturday I spent running all over doing errands because I recieved my monthly assistance cheque so i have to get my groceries and stuff for the month. I do this every month but expected it to come on monday so I figured I could recoop yesterday and today but that changed last minute and in hindsight I should have waited til Monday. Bad decision on my part. So im in a crazy bad fibromyalgia flare and back spasm. Normally standing too long makes my back worse but now it seems to be the only thing that doesn't cause me to hyperventilate in pain. Lying down in impossible right now and sitting up isnt much better. And I'm pretty sure the fact Im due for both my period and my bladder treatment for ic isnt helping matters. Methinks its emergency pain medication time but I dont think Ill be sleeping much tonight. If I could just pull every pain receptor nerve out of my body, that'd be great. 😣

MIGRAINE MEMORIES .
As we transition into #spring I'm hit with an almost joyful #thought: I haven't had a #migraine caused by barometric pressure in so long I can't remember the last one. For a long time my body had difficulty adjusting to the change between #seasons...
Looking at #light was probably the cruelest thing I could do to myself...

#MyView during my #BedrestLife. #HerniatedDiscsSuck and #SciaticaSucks BIG TIME. #PostRTA #SoftTissueInjuries and the like have been insaaane since our return. Honestly, the #BackPain was quite severe whilst we were away; however, between #PainMedication and a regular #PhysioSession, it was relatively manageable. Alas, over the past few weeks, the #MaximumDosage of #TRAMADOL and #GABAPENTIN - amongst other medications - have *not* provided much relief. Here's hoping things turn-up soon, πŸ™ƒ! #ChinUp #InvisibleConditions #LongTermDisabilities #BeKind #ItIsWhatYouDontSee #WalkingStick #WheelChair #BedrestLife

Just realised that in the sideways view you can see the metal wires in my sternum, which look like πŸ“Ž! These were used to repair my sternum after the lovely surgeons had to saw through it to fix my dodgy ticker... πŸ’”

I took these #photos yesterday on my way home from a #pain treatment. They have always symbolized the #beginning of Spring & resurgence of life after the deepest cold of winter to me. It made me so happy when I saw them & I'm hoping they are a sign that what I went through yesterday is the start of something better in my life...
