So. I’m exhausted and in pain. Beyond exhausted. Just ran a marathon exhausted. Swam ten laps in the pool exhausted. Body like lead. Can’t lift my head up, bone-deep exhausted. Pain like I was hit by a bus. Muscles screaming. Joints throbbing. Nerves on fire. Back spasms. Head feels like a vice around my forehead. Like an ice pick through my eye. Throbbing, stabbing pain. Descriptive much?
Am I in the hospital? ICU? ER? Urgent care? Doctor’s office?
I’m at home. In bed. Trying to survive. Just a typical day in the life of a chronic pain sufferer.
