Spoke Too Soon
What a way to start off the new year... last year, when I started getting massages done professionally I thought that would be the end of my problems with my back pain, or at least that they would help a little bit. Last night, however, I was in the most pain I have been in since I had a in internal cyst rupture. It was excruciating. Even the most heavy-duty painkillers I had did very little except make me loopier than fluffy yarn and only take the edge off. It was still very painful- lying down hurt like hell, but sitting up or standing only made it ten times worse. It was bad enough that my father almost called 911 to get me taken to the hospital- he was concerned I had a vertebrae pop out of alignment or something, but my mother talked him down from it. Meanwhile, I was writhing around on the floor trying not to scream in pain and beg for someone to just end it for me. It was that bad. Finally I managed to fall asleep after another dose of hardcore pain meds.
So this morning I went to the urgent care doctor. I waited four hours in a room full of people with the flu to see a doctor and probably caught that now too. When I finally got into see the doctor, he basically prescribed me more codeine and a muscle relaxant and told me that nothing I could do was really going to help at all. Wonderful. At least I didn't have to go to the hospital to hear the same thing.
Really, I probably shouldn't be sitting here typing this- I'm supposed to avoid sitting around too much. I don't know what else I'm expected to do though, considering that standing up and lying down is equally painful.
All I'm going to say is that 2015 is not looking to be very good if this is the sort of thing I have to look forward to for the rest of the year. Happy Fucking New Year to me.
