Does Anyone Really Understand?

Friday, February 20, 2009

Feeling alone, left out, no friends. Pain rampaging my body. Can't sit, stand, or walk for long moments. Does anyone really understand or care. Spending hours in bed trying to ease the pain. To fall asleep briefly waking up in pain. Getting out of bed hurts so bad.
If i knew when I was younger would I have changed anything I did. Standing for hours being a cashier, on cement floors. Working as a sales person in a department store moving all the time, again on a cement floor. Activities, bowling, ice skating, rollar skatting, hiking, running,
and jumping rope. Did these things play a part in body breakdown over the years.
Maybe. Now they have articles about running, how this affects the impact on your knees.
The body breaks down over the years. I doubt if I would have changed a thing by knowing.
Most don't until the day they feel the changes in the body.
We cannot reverse what already is taking place, there is no going back.
Unless in one form or another you have experienced pain, you have no clue as to the feeling it creates.
I pray to God you never do.
To deal with pain is a learning process done over time. Pain comes in many ways.
Heart ache, headache, backache, many different types of pain.
I have learned to take it one day at a time, dealing with that pain then. Staying positive,
taking my mind off my pain, by doing something I enjoy, or talk to a friend, listen to music,
reading a good book. For a time the pain seems to dimenish. It's like having a "Good Time Feeling."
This is how I try and handle it. I am sure there are other ways that people handle pain.
I am always looking for a different way. I am at a crossroad with no answers.

I thank SparkPeople for letting me express my feelings, and blog them so others can read and put their input.

Have a happy always, Paula emoticon emoticon

    My doctor only recomends taking Tylenol every six to eight hours. My body does not tolerate pain pills. I got deathly sick on Morphine and other pain medicenes.
    I wish it was easier but it isn't.
    Thank you for sharing, my Aunt had what you have. She suffered something awful.
    I would go and spend days with her to help her.

    I have systemic lupus and learned as a teenager to make pain my friend. The more you fight it the harder it gets. "hello, old friend" is my attitude. When it gets intolerable I take2 Alleve and lay down. Before my hip replacement, I needed to rely on narcotics to get my thru. What does your doctor recommend?
