Then & Now Update 3/27/18
Well, I spent over 4 hours straight in the tub again tonight. I guess I could become one of the California Raisons one day. But, not only does it help bring me relief, but it seems to shrink any feeling of swelling in the new battery incision area. I’ve been out the tub for about 2 hours and I’m still struggling to sleep at 2:45am.
Sleep is getting harder and harder to come by especially when both my hands and feet are itching constantly. And I’m not talking the kind of itching you just scratch away or put some cream on.
It’s noon the next day and praise God I did abruptly fall asleep again thanks to meds. I found the above paragraphs just sitting on my phone when I woke up. I slept nearly 7 hours comfortably even while waking at 7am to take more meds. I’m not hurting badly or itching anymore. I just feel like could sleep another 7 hours.
Anyway this is the life of severe chronic pain. Your life is built around it and it’s unpredictable nature. You do what you can when you can. For instance, I did go and exercise in the pool at the YMCA last night as I find it’s critical I don’t let the rest of my body just fall apart. Even if you feel you’re just running in place every faith step matters.
”For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
