In My Distress
It’s never a good sign when you’re taking all your nighttime meds two hours early. A muscle relaxer hours ago helped a little. Icing my neck and shoulder helped some too. Sadly the pain just won’t let up and has come back even stronger. I’m back laying on ice and waiting on several medications to do something.
If I was to label this kind of pain I would call it trapping pain. It’s not the type you just ignore and go on with your business. It can make you cry, throw up, and freeze in place all at the same time. Fortunately, I have loads of experience at this stuff. I know all I can do is try to rest, pray and weather this storm.
Of course, this would come when I have several key speaking engagements the next few days. God willing most that hear me preach won’t have a clue of the degree of my struggle. Honestly, right this moment I’m just desperate for some relief. It hurts just to touch my neck and shoulder. There is no position that is comfortable sitting or laying. I’m sure God will see me through again.
