Paying for yesterday

As some of you read I walked yesterday more than my doctor has recommended and that I can do without major pain the next day.

Sure enough last night into this morning the pain has been tremendous. I couldn’t get comfortable in bed. Every movement brought pain and I have no real pain meds. I use Ibuprofen and Meloxicam.

I am thankful not to be in a wheelchair, but unless things improve that option will be coming down the road. I am working on the 5 minute walking in the hopes of improving some of these joints so I can use them without major pain. I would like to walk again. I spent our time at Disney World in a wheelchair as that was entirely too much walking at once. The dash across the airport 4 times was no fun either. I was so far behind and dragging slower and slower. Here I am walking and dragging a walk-on suitcase and a tote bag. Kids couldn’t help, they had their own to worry about.

    I had a panic attack just thinking about airports and Disneyland. I’d need a wheelchair, if not an ambulance and IV valium.

      Now a days you don’t just call in a few pain meds. Things have to be regulated by a pain doctor and I am not going that route right now. Been through it once and it is much more difficult and going to the dr monthly and paying for drug tests just for pain meds is just not worth it right now. I will suffer through it. I have had chronic pain for 35 years. I am used to it. Thanks anyway.

    There is a drug that I am on that can be prescribed by your regular Doctor called Tramadol (generic name) it is low cost, accepted by Medicare part D and is controlled but I only see my Dr every 3 months and she gives pharmacy 3 monthly refills faxed in and TN is tough on pharm drugs. It doesn’t make you sleepy and you are safe to drive with it, doesn’t get picked up in a drug screen. It is a synthetic narcotic. They put me on it when I couldn’t take ibuprofen because of my ulcer. It relieves the pain great.
