Good morning folks
I haven’t written on this for a wee while , some of you will be glad of this! The reason I haven’t been writing on here or on my Facebook support page I felt as though I was repeating what was happening over and over again. But those of us with CRPS can understand that. Well, I hope.
So to my friends on my support page I am truly sorry and I will make more or an effort .
Pain isn’t complicated most people will suffer some sort of pain everyday of life. Chronic pain is only complicated because for a lot of us there is no cure .
My pain doctor is amazing, being Irish she doesn’t beat about the bush and tells me straight which I think although generalising of people, a great character trait. Jen and I prefer this kind of person. My condition has progressed – when I told her of my thoughts of using my crutches or frame in the house then going to a wheelchair when out and about, she said the only people who would think anything of that know nothing about your situation and are low life’s.. fair enough. I also told her of my fear of continuously filling my body full of pills for what I think is very low pain relief she has solutions all the time.
Since my last blog lot of things are happening. I was sent to a local hospital to see a specialist for my tarsal coalition, I was x-rayed and told they could see further problems that I would need a CT SCAN for so I’ve had the CT scan and I’m awaiting a follow up appointment from ANOTHER SPECIALIST as what they seem in the x ray was too complicated for him so need to see what happens from there. It will be a massive decision if they say I need another operation. My pain is roughly been medium to high and I’ve started having spasms.
When you have suffered pain everyday of your life for 10 years or more like myself it’s going to drag you down, I am not afraid to say I am depressed and I don’t say that for people to take pity I say that because I am not afraid to hide anything. My pain specialist is top of her profession and she tells me how to do things and I tell her what I can do, what won’t work for me and we work together as a team my wife included… The doc knows best.
I will try write a bit more often, again I make no apologises for my English as I never listened in school. A lot of things on the horizon for myself and family and 2014 is looking not too bad. Pain will alway effect my life until a cure is found and until then I will moan about it.
Cheers for reading you have been a wonderful audience.
