One of the MOST frustrating things about my current condition is the seemingly irrational stupid pain.
I’m getting used to the new sensation in my thigh and can tolerate it now. Its pretty annoying as I don’t know what it is and even light pressure on my thigh hurts. Im ok with the old and familiar groin pain, I’ve been dealing with that on/off for 3 years now. The occasional shooting pains in my butt don’t worry me. And the stiffness in the back of my pelvis and sacrum are understandable.
But what I REALLY don’t like is when stupid little things like the vibration of someone stamping their foot to music at choir ricochets up my leg and causes pain not dissimilar to hot pokers being stabbed into my hip/thigh. Seriously… What is with that?!? It was so bad I actually lifted my leg off the floor, I didn’t have the heart to tell the lady stamping her foot to stop, she looked so happy.
EUGH… I really do wish the pain fairy could use her magic wand and make all of this go away!
I’m reading a wonderful book “Me Before You” by JoJo Moyers. One of the main characters is quadriplegic and reading this book certainly puts things into perspective. I may have pain, but I do have very good function and CAN do a lot of things. It could be a hell of a lot worse!
