What A Pain In The Butt

November 16, 2022

Still dealing with sciatica. Chronic pain makes it hard to sit. Hard to stand. hard to lie down. Hard to sit up. Hard to think. Hard to sleep. Hard to write.

I started using a cane today. It’s not a prop. I used up all the steroids. I’m 1/3 of the way through the muscle relaxers. I’m charting my Advil and Tylenol usage. Driving 30 minutes is a sick form of self induced torture.

If I were better able to manage pain, this post would be longer.

Stay safe
