Chronic Illness Problems #154:

chronicillnessproblems:

When your very painful chronic condition also makes you metabolize analgesics and painkillers differently so that nothing works.

So damn true. My pain gets so bad I’ve found “Biofreeze" - a roll on pain reliever and it helps out soooo much. From muscles to joints and even helps with migraines til the meds can kick in. This shitz it’s amazing. I’m totally promoting this because I know others need this too.

the best pain scale ive ever seen for chronic pain #Repost from @jennjenn129 with @repostapp #chronicpain #rsd #crps

Helpful activity scale both for talking to practitioners and gauging your own progress.

50 to 40 while trying to live at a 60 but then later on going to 20 if I don’t remember to rest up.

damn. 40 on my very very best days. 20 would be my average….

I’m kind of at a seventy? But considering the amount of pain that I’m in? It doesn’t feel like a seventy. Like… If I’m ending every day at like a seven on the pain scale… Does that really count? 
I don’t even know. I’m just frustrated. Because I don’t want to have to work and be in this much pain every day. Fuck everything. 

Reblogging this again because I wanted to make more commentary. 
I don’t like this because it’s linear. I can work full time, and leave the house five days a week, but I can’t do… anything else. Including laundry. Or cooking. Or grocery shopping. I made some phone calls and that was exhausting. 
I can either be an adult or have a full time job but I can’t do both, and being an adult requires money, because that’s stuff like doctor’s appointments and grocery shopping and cooking and so on and so forth. 
So it’s just… frustrating because functioning isn’t nearly so linear. 

I agree with the above^^ I have seen this used as a “M.E Severity Scale” (That’s CFS for the non-UK peeps) and I used to fall at a 60, but now I’m at a 30 most days, but some days I’m 40 so I say I’m 35. However, Mike is right, it is linear and it’s all about certain things and not others. I can do some of the higher stuff, but I don’t leave the house every day and I don’t do housework, just uni and book work because that’s all I have the energy for these days…but still….good in theory, not good in practice.
Sorry if this makes no sense…two hours sleep and lots of pain, on the TENS machine which is making me twitchy but I am also foggy as hell..

I’m at a 30 on my best days, 10 on my worst, 20 probably about 85% of the time. 

25!

spoonie problem:

this chair is uncomfortable.  There’s a bed in the other room that would be super comfortable.  Unfortunately, my laptop, cushions, meds, cup, icepack, etc are all out here at the chair. and I don’t have the energy to move them.  You see the problem.

I dropped my phone on the floor and I don’t have the energy to lean over and pick it up.  I am too comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Sick Of Being Sick: What's Fibromyalgia Feel Like?

alifewithchronicpain:

Some days you have to laugh at the pain because it’s all you can do, either that or take a gun out back and put yourself out of your misery. Those without Fibro can’t really understand what it’s like, but I thought I’d share some descriptors that I personally use (and that I’ve heard some of my…
