Tomorrow is the big day. I've had so many pain killers today I've gone numb
It's a pity you can't email some of that... I'd like to feel some numb.
If this injection doesn't work I'm going to chuck myself out the window.
I said something similar to one of the useless doctors I was seeing: "If you don't give me something decent for the pain I'm going to throw myself out the window."
Hew came back with: "Be my guest... oh, and good luck with that... we're in the basement!"
My lower back clunks when I walk!
And don't you get some rude comments with it! I had somebody say once: "You gotta have some pretty big 'marbles' down there.", all because I happened to be walking all stooped over and bandy legged.
Guess the clunk-clunk-chink-chink-clunk gave it away.
pain management clinics
Been there, done that - complete waste of time. I wish some of these people could experience the symptoms so they could realize just how insulting these places are.
My point exactly... if only these idiots knew first-hand. To add insult to injury, my local hospital out-sourced its pain management clinic so it was out of my way and located in a regular house about an extra hour's trave each wayl... and I have to rely on public transport as I can no longer drive safely Worse still, the bus stopped well short of the mark and there was a 25 - 30 minute walk, mostly uphill to get there... and with back/neck/hip/knee problems, the downhill walk was no less painful to get home again.
None of that mattered to the treating doctor, though. He came up with: "If you're not willing to help yourself, then there's nothing more I can do for you."
Another idiot doctor suggested the pain was all in my head: "If you think pain-free, you will be." Yeah, right! Thinking my feet were smaller didn't make the shoes fit any better when the store didn't have any of the one I liked in my size... and thinking that I was Ron Jeremy didn't make my ED go away, either.
