When your pain flair up is so bad....

Recommended Posts

You find yourself beating your shoulder with a household hammer at 5am just to try to get some relief so you can sleep. 


(Share your ridiculous attempts at easing the suffering. We've all been there...might as well get a head shake and a hear hear out of it.

I like to animate mine with quick sketches. ..because it soothes my mind,  even if my body won't catch on...where's my hammer...)

Ow. Migraines sometimes feel like they would be lessened if you shoved a long needle or a fork in your eye. I have fortunately refrained from doing that, but I have banged my head against the wall a few times. Didn't help.

I was rolling around on the floor with a tennis ball tonight,  infuriating.

Between that,  the hammer,  a tens unit,  an electric massager,  every protruding corner in the house,  my pencil eraser,  my fingers etc etc etc. .. I have yet to find relief tonight. 

Usually I just finally get so tired I fall asleep after 24-48 hours.

I definitely get the needle/fork thing.

I have an overwhelming desire to turn the hammer around to the hooked side and just dig in.  Or shove knitting needles into my back.  Anything. 

I break into furious frustrated tears more often than I'd like to admit.
