THIRD WEEK, DAY ONE - THE FIRST DAY OF THE WALL!
ok, today I think I can officially say I have hit a wall, maybe the first, maybe the last, but it is definitely a WALL.
For those who don't know what I am talking about please refer to some of my previous blogs.
If you want to know what it feels like to have your CRPS pain spike a great deal in one afternoon.... let me sum it up in one word;
Ok, maybe that sounds more like a pirate. "But I don't wanna be a pirate!"
I don't even own a puffy shirt.
Little shout out to all my fellow Seinfeld fans. Great episode.
Ok, my pain was flaring this weekend as I shared, but today after the treatment my feet and hands just went nuts within about 2 hours after the treatment.
So, should I just give up? After all, this HBOT was supposed to decrease my pain not give me more pain right? If I told my friends and family members it was making me worse they would certainly understand if I said I wanted ti quit. Well, some of them. Some of them would say, "What the heck did you spend the last two weeks doing if you are going to quit now? Just push through it you whiner!"
Then I would have to punch those guys and decide later that they were right so I will just skip all of that and decide for myself, it is just a wall.
I can handle a little extra pain. After all, the prize at the end of all of this, even the potential prize, is worth it. 50% , 75%, 100% relief of my CRPS pain/symptoms. Not to mention the fact that HBOT also helps Fibromyalgia, which I have as well. Who knows, in a month or two I may be so pain-free I will feel like I am 13 again. Minus the pimples and growing pains and awkardness, and, ok. maybe not 13 but that was the last time I was pain-free, 100% pain-free.
Short blog today. My body needs lots of rest today.
By guys, pray for me! I will be back tomorrow and know I won't give up. This is simply a minor set-back and I was expecting it.
