A while longer was a few more minutes. It's not a record, but it's time spent outside, sorta.
Have mercy on those in your life who find it difficult to function well outside of their homes. It's great to be outside and around the sound of shops and people and traffic. But it comes at a high cost, and a few minutes is better than nothing-- however that few minutes is ungodly short, and you should be able to enjoy your time out freely. Trust me, we know how valuable it is. #chronicpain

Today I have traded staying imndoors with what feels like a long dagger stabbed into my right upper back and coming out my right upper chest. I am pressed against the back of the car seat, hunched forward against the pain, taking steady focused breaths, and deathly determined to to be out of the house for a while longer. Just a while longer...just a while longer.. just a while longer...just a while longer...

Well, I officially love the hot tub. I don't love the continual fussing & filter changes with our little inflatable hot tub though. For pain relief, it's not dramatic, but over time, relaxing those muscles and being able to flex joints in the warm water is great. My skin also loves it, even with the chlorine. I also am not thrilled with the construction site decor around it,'s too hot to do much already, so its a work in progress.

Today is really hard. My regular depression, multiple anxiety disorders and PMDD are all combining to kick my ass. My pain is also really bad today. I haven’t been able to do anything but sit in my chair. Feeling so overwhelmed and frustrated. #Depression #PMDD #AnxietyDisorder #ChronicPain #NEISvoid

The headache did let up. I fell back asleep a couple of hours later and woke up to only mild pain.

And I just snapped why that migraine happened. I often get migraines after stress is relieved. Yesterday was the anniversary of Barbara passing. Today that extra stress is gone. Duh!

#methotrexate morning! (imagining myself singing this)

ahhhhhh knowing I'm going to feel like hot garbage in the next few hours...

I realized that telling people who don't live with chronic pain that 36-48 hours of knock-me-into-bed-weakness-and-nausea every week would be a worthwhile trade off if the rest of my days weren't as painful as they are now shares pretty well about how horrible it is to live with this #ChronicPain.

#ChronicPain sucks. I did a task long in need of doing. I cleaned the parrot's cage. This after many days of poor sleep and various arthritis flares ( hands, knees, hips). Plus my allergies are crazy because the air quality sucks.

Anyway, CBD gummies and lots of trying to sleep are on my agenda for the next few days. I miss ibuprofen.

Last week, I gave an in-person presentation at the #VisionPlus conference by IIIDinfodesign. I used #dataviz, #informationdesign and #illustration to talk about #ChronicPain. It was strange to speak in front of an audience and not a computer. #rstats #sciart #infographic

Poster: The invisible persistence of pain. The poster is divided into three sectors on the left, description of pain. The top left figure is the human body with a bell drawn in the brain. On the left, a red ball shows a point that hurts, and there is the impulse that goes from this point to the brain.  On the bottom left, is the human body, with the brain that sends signals to the body. In the centre, the human body with a red ribbon.

For the past two or three days I've taken to pushing myself a bit, not by much, but I'm seeing where I have limitations.
Which sucks, but this is life now.

I managed another 1000 words today despite very bad chronic pain. A little over 23K total on my WIP, a new Matthew Cordwainer medieval mystery.
#Writing #ChronicPain

I've had the worst tension/possible occipital neuralgia induced headache all day. Was supposed to go to the big town to Walmart with roomie today, but that didn't happen. It's finally starting to calm down, but it's been a rough day. Almost cried just standing making a sandwhich.
I spent most of today in my room, in my bed. Not sleeping, just miserable. But I'm okay now, and hopefully my occipital nerves in my neck stay calm. We figured out thats what it was when wife presser her elbow at the base of my skull and it felt sooooo good. Felt like actual steam and pressure was coming out of my ears. I have 2 slipped discs in my neck, but this is different.

One thing I had forgotten about growing up somewhere very rural was the lack of noise pollution and how it feels to stand outside in the quiet at this time of year and just listen to the hum of the bees around you. I think I needed this vacation more than I realized. It's weird to say you need a vacation when you've been basically unable to work for almost a year, but the change of scenery has done something really nice to my inner monologue and made me feel hopeful in a way I really wasn't before. Grateful for the love and support of my partner and the sunshine on my face. #mecfs #pots #chronicPain

Can’t use the public hospital system right now due to medical neglect (my doctor had no idea to present my care plan to a hospital), but I’m in a long queue to see gateway specialists (who give minimal/no rebate), another cost ahead. Getting into the public system also takes a long time (at least 18 months from time of referrals, but I’m still on the waitlist for a gatekeeper).
I can’t wait in bed anymore.

I have a referral from a different GP and will start getting these IVs as soon as details are sorted.

saw this on tumblr and it has me spinning fr its truth. it's about how those of us living with chronic pain also can have high pain tolerances and also can seem like we don't and how messed up the whole thing is. especially resonating for me is the "I wake up at a 4/10" because I don't remember the last time I didn't have at least a 4 in pain, typical is 5/6 (that's where I start to have a harder time ignoring it).

Super cool resource & literature. Need more time in a day!!! I just read the interview with Sofia Jeppsson

The series is designed to provide a public venue for discussion with disabled philosophers about a range of topics, including their philosophical work on disability; the place of philosophy of disability vis-à-vis the discipline and profession; their experiences of institutional exclusion and personal and structural gaslighting in philosophy, in particular, and in academia, more generally; resistance to ableism, racism, sexism, and other apparatuses of power; accessibility; and anti-oppressive pedagogy.

This is what pain looks like in a diabetic. I haven't had food or meds recently, so now dinner will be scant. Bc it will be hours trying to get numbers back down to normal. Pain causes my numbers to increase rapidly from normal to over 300 and that's ALWAYS an emergency room visit. Why can't diabetes docs take pain into account when prescribing insulin? I'm tired too, and now I'll be up hours after bedtime to try to reverse these numbers. Which stresses me which also causes high sugar numbers. Lovely catch-22; also pain is off charts today n meds ain't doin jack-shit-all for me. But if I smoke 2 bowls of weed, boom, pain n sugar both under control in about an hour. But why should we legalize something that improves ppls lives yeah?

@LewisHarrington @luckytran I’m not immunocompromised but have recovered from an injury that gave me two years of #ChronicPain and am not about to go back because of some stupid virus inhaled just so I could eat something in the presence of people outside my household.

Went from accepting that I might never be free of pain again to being really damn grateful I am, and determined never to get infected. That means never. Which means goodbye social life.

I've had to reschedule my shoulder cortisone injection.. it was meant to be tomorrow, but I have to go to the podiatrist because I have a spot on my foot and being diabetic means you don't fuck around with feet stuff lest you find out. I'm pretty sure it's a bit of an ingrown toenail, but I intend on keeping all my toes so I'm getting it looked at.

Unknown foot issue > known shoulder issue (no matter the severity of the pain)

Luckily my doctor listens to me and has prescribed me some palexia sr because the panadeine forte/naproxen combination stopped working a couple of weeks ago when the inflammation got worse.

I'm nowhere near pain free, but it's sitting about a 6/10 and that's as settled as its been for about a month.. I might actually get more than two hours sleep at a time tonight.

I need breakfast #help.

I used to eat oats, but started putting more fruit in it than there were oats.. which wasn't great ( #diabetic and fruit has a lot of sugar) and was getting expensive.

I had muesli and yoghurt for a while, but the only muesli I can eat also pushes my blood glucose too high.

Then I started eating weetbix, which is ok for my #diabetes but I'm now at the point where I'm adding sugar to it, which is bad.

I have a #ChronicPain disorder, #MentalHealth issues, #audhd with #ExecutiveFunction issues and I'm pretty sure I have #PathologicalDemandAvoidance. I have #SensoryIssues with some foods.

Does anyone have any suggestions or help? Because I can't keep eating rice crispy treats for breakfast...

In the intervening time I changed jobs, underwent a major back surgery, and was diagnosed as #bipolar. I’ve tried to watercolor multiple times, but always failed.

Ten seconds of pushing too hard on a wrench got me over a year of disability and a nightmare of #ChronicPain. I thought about those ten seconds a lot. It took a long time for me to stop reliving them and trying to negotiate with them. But they were over ten seconds later, as I walked inside from the garage holding my chest and wondering what I’d just done.

I’m fine now, more than two years later. It’s easy not to regret those ten seconds when they aren’t hurting me anymore. The trauma is… 2/

Hi, friends I have and haven't met yet! I'm Kellyann, and this here is my #Intro. I recently (like, a year and a half ago) moved from #Vermont to #NewHampshire with my spouse, Tim. I'm #queer, of the #pan variety, and #genderqueer, though I don't talk about the latter much because in the past few years I've become femme. I dunno, maybe it's part of the glorious cycle that is genderqueerness.

Tim and I have two #cats, #Pip the Golden Boy, and #Dayenu, whom we also call Nubbins.

My spouse and I enjoy #hiking, #nature (we're both amateur naturalists), #LeverageRedemption, and the #Horizon games, #HorizonZeroDawn and #horizonforbiddenwest.

I work from home as an #indexer and as-yet-unpaid #Writer. I take lots of #Photographs; they're not good but I share them anyway.

We belong to a local #Reform synagogue, despite being Christians (one of us [me] a former professional Christian). There are many reasons for this: a lifelong appreciation of Jewish ritual and ethics, a Jewish step-mom who's closer to me (and my spouse) than we are with our bio-moms, and an aversion to supersessionism and bad theology in general in Christian churches. (When I left my last church, under very unpleasant circumstances, a fried, the organist, said, "I didn't think I could be a Christian, but you made a place where I could be a Christian." Turns out I did the same for myself.😢​

I'm #autistic and have #cPTSD. Also #ChronicPain, #asthma, and a scarred trachea, making this #pandemic both incredibly tedious and yet full of suspense!

Too tired! More later!
