Sometimes I wonder how in the hell can my pain levels increase any more but they do, I never know how long these periods will last, could be hours, days or even weeks, and so far this episode is 3 days in and counting. It actually reached the point last night, I was wishing that if having your legs amputated was an option I would go take it.
I’m not making light of amputation or making a joke of it, I have seriously thought of talking to my specialist about it, as I have heard of people having this done, though I believe it is very much a last resort. For me at the moment the doctor’s have gone as far as they can down the medication pain relief and nothing has even come close.
The pain in my legs has been pretty much 24 x 7 for the last 8 years and steadily getting worse, but at times like these I just feel like I’m going out of my mind. The pain just takes over and blocks everything else out, it makes it almost impossible for me to concentrate on anything, do anything, or even think straight. It’s taken so many tries just to write this.
It’s also at times like this I have to try and convince myself that maybe there will be a medical breakthrough around the corner, it’s a real battle to remain positive during these times, but it still doesn’t stop the real dark thoughts creeping in at times.
Going crazy, but not quite there yet, take care,
