The medication I have received for the joint pain isn't touching it and I am just too
I am so tired of the pain scale question - y'know the one - "On a scale of one to ten what is your pain?" Well, it is about a 5 BUT by being constant [and worse when I sleep and first wake up] it is a 10. I know that sounds excessive - but I am so weary of this.
I can't pick up a cup because my fingers are too weak to grip it and extending my arm to reach for the cup causes a shooting pain up my arm. And I can forget trying to lift a 1/2 gallon of milk or put a casserole dish on the dinner table.
I have been in pain before but I thought I would at least get a little break ...
Tonight we leave for the University for Squirrel's orientation and I honestly don't know how I am going to make it through a 10 hour day for her. I want so much to be a part of this. Y'know?
