Over the Top

Monday, I started physical therapy for what my doc thinks is a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder.  Can we say “Hot, Burning Lava Pain”?  Pain, plus no sleep because of the pain, plus a full-blown depressive episode is just about more than I can take.  Cue sobs and escapist behavior.  I called the therapist and begged for intervention—amputation was on my list of possibilities.  I’m going in a few minutes for “pain relief measures,” which I’m hoping includes a spinal block from the neck down and a nice latte.  We’ll see.

    Pain sucks, doesn’t it? Sorry to hear you’re hurting. Hope you get some relief–not to mention a latte!

    😦 Tell them to give you liquid morphine and a latte… that has to be excruciating pain.

    The “like” button doesn’t always seem like the appropriate response–but I DO like and admire your ability to hang onto humor even in the midst of suffering. 🙂 Sending (gentle) hugs your way!
