Please, Can I Get A Hot Tub?

I would give anything to take a hot bath. It’s always been one of my biggest pain relievers. To go from hours a day in a hot tub to zero minutes is hard to swallow. It’s been 8 days since my recent surgery and I’m supposed to wait 14 days before soaking in any hot water. It feels like a forever wait right now.

This new larger stimulator battery hurts so bad. It feels like I have a softball stuck in my back that needs to come out. Also, I’ve had to turn down my stimulator battery due to my legs vibrating so much and my heart rate increasing. My nerve pain is not being covered very well. When you’re in constant discomfort it’s so hard to wait on anything. Especially, when you know something could give you instant momentary relief.

I believe this very issue is what compels so many in deep pain to take certain drugs or alcohol. They just want the pain to go away. So, they reach for the quickest relief possible. They know it’s just gonna numb the pain for the moment, but they are just so tired of hurting. I do know it’s in my best interest to wait. I need the root of my pain healed. Anything else is just momentarily numbing the symptoms.

“But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”
(Isaiah 40:31)
