Three Good Days Is All You Get
This week, three decent days of pain management is all I got. My average pain is around a six to seven. The last three days have been around a four or five. Mostly a four. Of course nothing ever goes completely right. I have had huge bouts of chronic fatigue but the pain has been manageable.
I am frustrated. On the rare chance I get to a point where the pain is tolerable, I get greedy and I want several more days pain-free.
I am also frustrated because when I am having one of those rare episodes of good pain management I get nervous for fear that the pain will blow up, out of no where and it makes me leery as to what I try to do. I’ll take the pain-free days even though they wont last and even though I don’t always takes advantage of a pain free day.
They never include frustration as a symptom of fibromyalgia. But the frustration is as real as the pain itself.
Having said all that, I am grateful for three decently managed semi pain-0free days this past week.
