I'm not sure this is actually a confession but I have to write it.
I'm not sure where I hurt the worst right now.
I'll start at the top and list my maladies.
I have shooting pains in my temples, so bad that my eyes cross at times. The back of my head feels like it was hit by a hammer.
My neck muscles are tight and painful. My shoulders have stabbing pains just below the blades. Both of my arms are weak and painful. They move like they were underwater.
My spine hurts from top to bottom. I can feel the individual bones of my spine and each of them hurts. Including my tailbone.
My lower back is in agony and my legs feel much like my arms. I get tingly sensations that go along with the pain in my toes and fingers.
Then there's my soul. My heart hurts. For more than one reason.
The medicines the doctors have prescribed seem to do little of nothing.
I hurt and I feel worthless.
Six months ago, I was a healthy, productive member of society. Now I can barely walk at times. I can barely sit up at times.
I hope her text message got through. At least one good thing will have come of this.

    I feel for you, honey. I wish I could take it away, spin it, and make it disappear forever. Unfortunately my powers are not like that....She was a stupid b itch. And I am so angry she did this to you, my dearest friend. Love you, babe, love you. xoxoxoxo

    I'm still in this much pain. I found a doctor that is giving me the medicines I need but I hate taking all of those chemicals. Unfortunately, medical pot is still illegal here. If it were legal, I'd be all over it because I have smoked a little since the injury and it definitely helps.

    No. The drugs help but can't control it.

    How are you now? I was injured, and had to stop work. I was also in pain all the time so believe at least I know how you feel, or hopefully past tense, felt. Hope things are way better for you now

    Hey, sorry to hear... I think you might want to consider seeing a neurologist. However, for what it's worth, I would like to suggest that these symptoms may be rooted in psychological stress, because I too seem to suffer similar problems sometimes when I am going through difficult times. So you may want to practice relaxation exercises or something of that nature, just tossing this out to you as an idea if it's any help.
