Since my back injury in early December of 2015, I continue to struggle with chronic pain. When regular OTC pain meds don't work, I turn to alcohol which numbs everything so I can get some relief. At least once a week I find myself in so much pain that IBU simply doesn't cut it and I turn to alcohol. The wind was ruff today, sending the bus I drive to one side or another of the road. The extra effort in having to over compensate for that force triggered pain that would not relent until I drank (after my driving was done for the day, of course). I love my job. I really do. But I find that at least once a week I am struggling with chronic pain, or fatique...brought on by the pain. I don't know what to do. Today, all I wanted to do was curl up in a ball and fade away because the pain was so persistent. This is my new reality. Pain management.
And it sucks ass.
Until next time...
