Thread: losing my grip

  1. #1

    losing my grip

    up crying since 2AM. legs in acid, back worse than the first wake up after they rebuilt it, but drugs do nthing.

    feel like i'm losing my grip, starting to slip too much,too long drowning in this, bottle of pills, bottle of scotch, feel like it's time but can't let go.

    depression, spiraling, ... i've lost all hope and feel the race is over, don't even know who I am anymore, and in the end don't think I find the strenghth for one more battle

    long time since i let this out and puked my feelings here, I tried just.

    :( I can't remember where you are but I do know the cold weather makes pain worse. I don't envy your position but am always willing to listen.

    cold weather makes this pain so much worse , throw in a low pressure system and it's brutal.. used to enjoy a good winter storm , or any storm.. now i just know what's coming my way.. increase in pain.. meds don't work.. not even worth trying , just lose more life taken meds.. what meds i do take are just to get a goodnight sleep without that forget it day is shot. exercise exercise exercise.. somedays it feels like i just get out of bed to exercise to get right back in bed , that's better then laying there all day and night..

    You're not whining! I agree with Freespin ... barometer changes are hard, especially when so dramatic as this month has been.

    well said. Both points well taken about the low pressure fronts and sleep exercise, back to bed routine

    Freespin, You are right it's hard to be happy or smile when you feel like your body's on fire! It frustrates me when family and friends don't understand why I rarely smile or laugh anymore. But when you feel like we do all the time what's there to laugh or smile about?
    I believe I'm losing or have lost my sanity, why oh why do we have to live like this it's so maddening!! I would say I hope you all find some relief however I know the answer to that already, there is none.

    Thank guys.. One of the most frustrating thing about this pain is trying to talk to a doctor about central neuropathic pain.. they just don't seem to get it.. every doctor i have seen about this just tries to shove more meds down the hatch.. that is never going to work.. really if you do get a relief from meds it will be short lived and the dose will be upped till the side effects are out of control.. I learned my lesson about that.. now i believe subtracting from my diet is a better way. what i mean by that is 'ive taken things out of my diet like gluten , dairy , soy , proccessed food , anything that will cause inflammation with in my own body.. I wouldn't say i have less pain because i subtracted from my diet.. but what i have noticed is i'm better able to handle the daily never pain that i have..unless weather is a factor then all bets are off.. this is far better then taking meds... meds just lead to less life and less able to exercise and fight back... when are doctors going to figure this out and stop leading people on with meds...

    Whining ..no, this is one of the extremely few places you can speak and have someone understand.

    And yes pain will make you crazy, It has driven me mad. Not certifiable, how about mentally "permanently a little unwell"

    don't know how long you're in this game but as somewhat OCD I tried and cataloged events, food, drugs, vitamins..... ad nauseum
    and the only thing I can assure you, speaking for myself, cold or any barometric changes, are catastrophic.

    Pax,
