    Got Another One For Ya!!!! (like There Isn't Enough)

    Oh, yeah, I had another one who was screaming when her "old pain doctor died (uh huh) and fifteen years of records of treating her for RSD was reduced to seven pages, and boo hooo now I can only get 300mg MS Contin and 90mg of MS-immediate release." On my old regimen, I had days...

    Pain Is Not A Competition

    Everybody has pain. Your pain is no worse, or no better than mine. It just is. I think my worst experience was telling a pain doctor that my pain level was an 8, He looked at me and said, I think it really should be a 2 or a 3. I was not there looking for narcotics, I just wanted...

    People.

    People really do this??? hmmmm...  I guess I don't view it as a competition, I view it as them expressing their hurts and where they've been.  To me it's never been a competition in my eyes because it's how they're feeling and how they're hurting.

    What's With The Competition?

    Everyone has a different kind of pain and I don't see why people compete on who has suffered more and the longest.

    My Husband Does This.

    Every time something happens to me or I get sick or anything I never mention it to my husband anymore. When I used to he would always come back with how he was/is sooooo much worse off as if I have nothing to complain about and he deserves all the sympathy.
