    pain and your attitude

    pain and your attitude.
    what do you do when your pain level is at a high level?
    cry?
    curse?
    laugh?
    unconcerened?

      Take pain meds and try to distract myself.

        Beat my dog mercilessly then shove dirty knitting needles into my side where my neuropathic pain refers to. If that doesn't help then I come here and write some tripe.

        Hey Adi, how's your New Years resolution treatin' ya?

          I distands myself from the pain, like I am going out of it. And I try to get somebody to visit me or take a call so I can talk to somebody of other things. I don't read or write on CC then.

          But since I started with clonazepam in 2000, I have pain seldom. But I had terrible pain before that. Strange, in some way I have forgotten how bad it was for 20 years. But I remember the pain when I get it back.

            Mind over matter. Along with the pain meds. Nothing will ever completely take away the pain. You take what meds you can, and deal with the rest.

                    Cried in the begininng when it was so severe and had no answers.

                    Nowdays, kind of laugh about it. But like woman from Europe, I do pretty much what she does. And, yep, Clonazepam has helped me dramatically. It is rather odd, sometimes I think I have just grown used to the pain. Either that or distractions really work.

                      You know....I can't help but wonder what it would feel like to not have pain, even if it's only for a couple of hours. How awesome would that feel? I have truly forgotten what it feels like to not hurt. It's been 20 years, and to have just 1 day with no pain. Oh well, whatta you do? That's life!

                        You're not alone. I know of people with all-over central pain who have no normal touch sensation anywhere on their body and literally can't remember what it feels like.

                          With the risk of sounding selfish, I'm glad I'm not alone. It's a very difficult thing to deal with, and most people don't understand it. That's probably the most frustrating thing of all.

                            I could have written that, I so agree with you and feel the same way...

                              Depending on where it's at and what kind oxycodone, ultram [new to me], lidoderm or capsacian patches. And distraction like playing with my dog or calling a friend or going outside if it's nice. Bitching about it doesn't make it go away and when you concentrate on it I think your brain kind of hardwires it in place after awhile.
                              Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
