Pain do you suffer form it?
How often do you suffer from it?
Is it a daily event and if so does it slow you down or stop you from doing things?
The reason I ask is because today I am in a lot of pain and when I say a lot I mean a bloody lot of pain, I have had to move my laptop so I can sit in my arm chair to use it, I have taken pain killers to help with the pain but as yet I have had little relief from the pain.
I have had a lot of back pain for years; it is so bad that I have to use a shopping trolley for support when I go shopping if I don’t use one I am in so much pain before I even get inside the building.
It hasn’t stopped me from going for a walk each morning although by the time I get home I have to have a lay down in order to be able to function again due to the pain. I am hoping the more I walk the better it gets but I can only take it slowly. In fact I can only just manage to walk around the block at a pretty slow rate but it is a start.
Now my mum is in pain with her back 24/7 and she takes morphine for the pain but it doesn’t stop her doing much, she still cares for children every day and still manages to walk better than I do at times, I do wonder how she does it at times.
I also suffer from pain in my right knee and I have to say that is getting worse as well, my knee either goes out on me or locks up on me and this makes walking difficult at times, all I can really do is take it one day at a time and one step at a time.
