Short update – on meds and sharks and pain

I’ve had some hard weeks after Christmas. That’s mostly normal, but I also have the added burden of tapering my pain meds this month. I’ve been on Tramadol for a long time, and they are no longer effective so it had to be done. I’m being careful about it but it is kinda hard and I’m hurting a lot. The last two days have been particularly bad, and last night I had one of those spikes that reached the 8-9 on the pain scale.

Btw, I use Hyperbole and a Half‘s excellent pain scale. Go read the thing , there are very good descriptions.
Hyperbole and a half

I’m having trouble paying attention, and things are going way too fast for me on social media and the like so if you are wondering why I’m not quite with it this is why. I’m just gonna stay in bed and drink some more cocoa and possibly watch another monster movie. I watched a very bad one called Ice Sharks earlier and that was the best choice I could make today. Sharks, very smart sharks, eating everyone on the ice. Brilliant!

    That’s a very useful-looking pain scale! But I’m sorry you’re in so much pain. Hopefully you will be through the worst of it soon. Samantha x

      It’s a bit weather related to I think, lots of humidity and no proper winter. I’m seeing my pain doc in a couple of weeks so I’ll just have to hang on until then. Easy, right? 😲 Anne x
