Today is a wash, thanx to my doctor *insisting* I try another pain pill yesterday. (I asked for another referral for more ASTYM thereapy.) I hung around the grocery store after I took one, so I'd be fairly close to a walk in clinic if I had a reaction. Did fine, but after not being on pills for so long, I definitely felt it disrupt my natural rhythm. I could still feel pain, I was just more ok with it, which is good to fall back on if I ever have a really bad day, but it lasted for hours, and then wore off around midnight, and suddenly my nervous system felt magnified tenfold and my rhythm was all out of kilter. Doubt I slept more than 4 hours in tiny broken naps. I do NOT miss being on handfuls of pain pills and muscle relaxers and mood stabilizers round the clock. I barely slept for years and spiraled into a black hole, there is no way I'm going back, I don't care how good I feel when I pop a pill. To be honest, the pay off never was that good, and even the most innocent medical bandaid corrupts a person into chemical dependence really fast when you have this much pain. My doctor wants my fibro treated, dang it.
My best bet today is do some stretching and get a walk in, and mosey around doing chores. I have no brain.
