Crying in Pain Today

Yesterday, I had had a very physically stressful day and after dinner decided to have a nap before I did  some work prior to going to bed for the night. So at 7pm, I lay down in bed, still in my clothing, figuring I’d wake up on my own in an hour or two. That did not happen.

Instead I woke up at almost 6 a.m. this morning, on my back. Not a lot of people know this, but that is the second worst position for me to sleep in (my tummy is the worst). With falling asleep at that time, I did not take my nighttime medications, so needless to say, I was in excruciating pain. 

I rolled over, took my nighttime meds & curled up with Lilly, my Shih poo,  to go back to sleep. I was in tears less than an hour later.

For those who know me well, know that I do not typically cry for physical pain. I did not cry for my multiple concussions, my various surgeries, my ongoing chronic pain issues, or attacks from IBS, gallstones or kidney stones. I’m more of an emotional crier.

So for me to be in tears due to pain is pretty bad. Fortunately, I do have another layer a pain medication that I was able to take. And seeing as I’m able to write this post, I must be feeling a little bit better. 🙂

And I know some people are going to want to comment, inquiring if I’m dealing with addiction to opiates. To that I recommend reading my previous article on “Addiction vs Dependance“.

I wish everyone a healthy happy painfree & COVID-free day.
