Don't Worry, Just A Rant

(Hey) Where Are You Going? by foundimagination
I don't need you to read this and I know that I'm lucky, but I'm going to rant anyway.

I'm tired of being in pain.

I'm tired of being sore.

I'm disappointed to hear that I need to try to improve things but that the best way of doing that will most likely cause more pain.

I shouldn't be getting punished for something that wasn't my fault and something I didn't deserve.

I just want to get through a day, a week, a month, without worrying about doing something that will make things hurt more and I just want to get through a day, a week, a month, a year without hurting or being sore or uncomfortable.

I'm frustrated and I'm angry and I'm sad and I'm tired of hurting. Make it stop, make it stop, make it stop. I don't want to deal with it anymore.


/end rant

Hey Victoria... I think I can feel your pain. Though when it comes to physical pain, it's so very personal it's impossible to know how someone else feels the pain or deals with it.

But I do have a chronic back injury from a bad horse fall a few years ago. It was hell when it happened and, well it's chronic so it comes and goes but it's always there and will always be with me.

Here is how I have learned to deal with it... Hopefully this helps:

1- Accept that the injury and the pain are part of your life
2- When the pain is really bad, try and stay ahead of the pain. I refused to medicate myself at first but I realized that sometimes I need to numb the pain to feel better. So when it gets bad I take the appropriate medication in order to be able to get on with my life.
3- Stay as active as you can. Run, walk, ride a bike, swim, skate... anything and everything. The more you move, the better you will feel. And it will hurt at first -maybe for months or more- but you might just need to get stronger to feel better eventually.

Hang it there, injuries suck, they are unfair and I hate them too. But there are ways to learn and live with them.


Ps you can email me if you want to talk about it - although not sure you can see my email address?

As a chronic pain sufferer who's just been hurled back into the land of acuteness (I'm now on a combo of Valium and Codeine - party time!) I know how you feel.

I recommend kittens.

Mine has been very understanding of all the bangs and scrapes I've come home with and does a very good job of cheering me up.

<3 if only that would make it better. glad you ranted tho. it's always good to get it out.

Thanks Kas...hugs always help (gentle ones especially)

Thank you Unknown, you've got some great advice there, and right now I'm struggling with all three, which doesn't help. But yeah, thanks.

Oh Dominic, I think I'd be a wreck if I'd gone through as much as you have.

It can help a bit to rant J, but the hearts and love help too.
