I wish that I had better control with what is going on with my body. It feels as though a war has been waged on my entire right side. I take my medication and do everything possible, but it will not let up. I wonder how I can go from feeling amazing one week and then fall apart the next week. Severe chronic pain is not something I would wish upon anyone.
Pain is especially hard to deal with when you do not know its origin. I wish I knew what I was battling right now so that I could rid my body of it. This invader needs to retreat and leave ASAP. I can deal with the bladder problems, but this other pain is getting out of control.
Some days I wonder how I deal with everything that hits me. I feel as though I am hit constantly with something new and invasive.
Maybe soon it will go away?
...I hope so.
Whisper Words of Wisdom Let it Be
A chronicle of my life, including the ups and the downs dealing with chronic pain and making it through graduate school. It is a way of bringing awareness to chronic pelvic pain disorders, two of which I have: Interstitial Cystitis and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. Many women and some men suffer from these disorders, but they are not well known. This is a blog about my journey with these disorders, and about life in general. We only have one chance, so we better make the best of it.
