Do you ever feel you are losing control

Do you ever feel you are losing control

Does anyone else feel that they are getting worse pain increasing feeling a bit anxious & paranoid.
The control you usually have to manage what is wrong is just slipping away. Doctor does not seem to understand "Well it's a degenerative condition" & you worry that the day will come when you are out of options
I think winter is probably worse for this. Folk say you will be fine!! NO you know what I wont be "fine" I will never be fine again. What do others do when… read more

Listen...I've been at 'rock bottom' many times over the years.
I've had to cope with terrible chronic pain since I jumped and survived falling 90 feet, that's nine stories off a balcony, a failed suicide attempt when I was 20 years old.

Been 'that rocked bottom'd'...I just wanted to die, and that was before the chronic pain...that was caused by my manic depression, which they now refer to as bi-polar disorder.

Thing that I've learned...I'm now 51 and have spent more than half my life now paying for that fateful decision to try and take my own life...ever since I've had to suffer, and suffer and suffer...day after day...terrible pain!

Been down soooo low, days not getting out of bed.

BUT
BUT!
Listen...I've learned, to hold on...just hold on...take it day by day, moment by moment...because let me tell you, no matter how awful and terrible living with chronic pain is...it's life, you still have 'life'
And...
Just look outside, or sit in the sun shine, if you can...
Or...Listen to the birds outside, or ....rain....
Just take a walk, if you can...
Or just marvel out the window at the world...this great big beautiful world, that YOU are still a part of.
And...
Think about the people that care about you...YOU! YOU are ALIVE!

For every 'bottom'...there is a TOP
For every rainy day...there is a sunny one
For every horrible painful day...there is the days it's more tollerable
Hang in there...

~grateful to be alive~

Sometimes I feel like I have lost myself in pain. I cry and scream and go completely buggy. Then I stop crying and start praying. Funny but I do believe God and Jesus calm me down. My breathing slows my head clears and a comfort comes on me. God and Jesus are my Saviors. They are the only reason I find comfort and peace right now. God bless everyone.💜

Sometimes when I feel at my lowest, I sit quietly alone and reflect on only the good things in my life and list them. Like for me #1. My daughter is happy #2. I have a beautiful grand baby. #3. I have cigarettes #4. I have food in the fridge #5. I own a car and the list goes on and on, some things are 'big' and some very 'small' Just keep listing 'good things' and eventually you notice how many good things you do have in your life, and that you can get through another day, or if it's really a bad pain day, just getting through another hour, and take your pain meds and wait for them to kick in.

I dunno, that's what I do anyways.
