New prescription

My leg pain last night was unbearable.
I was literally moaning and screaming, which I can do without alerting the neighbors because my home is relatively secluded.
I got a new pain prescription today, which I'll take when I get home from work. Percocet, taken even two at a time, weren't at all effective.
Tonight should be a quieter night.

I spent a good part of the day today napping. I think getting a full night's sleep may leave me with more energy for tomorrow.

Glad to hear you got the prescription and will be more comfortable.

I'm enjoying your updates--very honest and moving material here.

Michael,
We met a couple ages ago through this blog. I have been checking in on you even though my own blogging days are over.
I have a feeling there are many of us silent well-wishers. I have no advice for your journey, not one single wise word.
I just wanted you to know that my presence is there, always has been, and I will see you through the best that I can in this strange yet sometimes wonderful medium.

All the best,
Chris

I hope the new pain medication helps.

Have you talked with a pain specialist yet? I think that might help you get proper pain control.

It is so discouraging to be in pain.

May today bring you peace and comfort.

I like a good moan when I am ill --for one thing, it is an effective antidote to holding the breath. Keep up the good work!

All the best,

Mike
