I can tell that it is getting ready to, or is currently raining here. My chronic pain problems are flared up to an extreme.
I could hardly move out of the bed, but I had to get up and feed the bunny who was ringing his bell for me. He is so smart and sweet.
The degenerative disc disease causes certain bulging discs to slide out of place and that is painful and makes it harder to move.
The cervical spine area is the worst, but I also have pain and stiffness in the thoracic and lower lumbar areas. There is some stenosis in the middle of my back, which makes certain movements difficult.
The lower back is always painful in the mornings. When I got up to feed the bunny, I put some more air in this airbed. It was getting too soft which always causes worse pain to sleep on it, if it is sagging in at my hips.
One day I will be able to buy a real mattress and that should be better for my bad back.
I took my usual pain medications and am waiting to see what happens. It might be a day I have to take extra.
But I have to drive to STS to have them help me with something in a little while. I cant take too many extra pain meds till I am done driving. I just need this round to kick in.
I have two tall flights of steps to go down, to get out of the house. I have been using a cane on the steps because the arthritis in my knees had gotten so bad, I can hardly tolerate the extreme pain in my knees on the steps.
The cane helps a little but the pain is still torturous. So I am trapped in the house until the pain meds work…if the choose to work well today.
Chronic pain is terrorizing. The other people that suffer from chronic pain know what I mean when I say it can cause depression.
I might be able to do some slow yoga in an hour or rwo. But not right now.
Otherwise I love the rain. I always have. It seems sad to have to dread something that you love.
Blessings for a peaceful day,
