I live in chronic pain, every single day...

Today is a really bad day. I have no idea why, I haven't felt this bad in many months... I don't understand it.

I want to cry, scream, kick & punch at myself for feeling this shitty, and yet, I'm totally helpless.... It hurts to breathe, hurts to move, my clothes on my skin hurts, my entire body, head to toe- back, neck, arms, legs, fingers, toe, even my head and face....

I hate feeling this way, especially only at the young age of 22 years!!! I feel like a failure as a mom & wife. I should be happy, healthy, able to run a mile, be active.....but all reality, I'd rather lay in bed with my dog and just sleep or watch tv.

I am on SSI, a whopping $732 a month.
I feel bad I can't help my husband and go to work to make more money, but how would I when I can barely move to go take a pee??

My kid walks all over me cause I can't get up to correct him, he yells at me, back talks me, spits at me, hits me and has kicked me. He's 2-1/2 years old, and refuses to listen to anything I say...

On top of that, my husband is getting edgy with me. He's tired of me always being sick.

Anyone at all, experience anything similar?
Any suggestions to get better?
Anyone please help...
I'm desperate! :(

My dh has chronic pain. You have a pain specialist? What is the diagnosis? Meds? Alternative treatment?

I was born with an extra vertebrae in my back, half of it is fused to my pelvis. I also have high & shallow hip bones & sockets. I'm beginning to think there's more nerve damage than they (doctors) originally thought :(

I've been there but I don't qualify for disability because fibro doesn't qualify. Being active was the best thing for me. It sucks, especially in the begining but it was worth it. I sleep better and everything. I'm off all meds and just do physical activity. It sucks, there's just no other word for it. I'm preggo with number two right now, I'm feeling pretty good all in all, but I still make the choice to get up every day. It took me two years to realize that laying in bed and taking the pills the doctors prescribed was in fact going to kill me. Thankfully dd doesn't really remember that time really well. Making a schedule, sticking to it, incorporating physical activity were all the things that made a huge difference. I was on bed rest for the pregnancy and was just dying ot get up and get moving. Hugs.

I have Fibromyalgia and I can understand your frustrations I hate being helpless. I am lucky that DH understand and knows on my bad days he has do to what I cant but he still gets slightly annoyed because there are good days and bad days and some times those bad days are just terrible. I dont know what to offer in the way of help but knowing you arent alone might help a little. Feel better!

I live in chronic pain everyday for several conditions. Some days I just want to give up, but I push myself because I'm going to be in pain either way. I continue to work full time and go to college full time. Sometimes you just got to push yourself no matter the pain.

I am 24 and have a 3 y/o little girl. I am disabled but I refuse to let my child be a brat. Try time outs,take things away. I understand being in pain I have debilitating chronic pain every day. I wish I could keep up with my daughter but I have just figured out things to do to play with her and keep her happy. She understands mommy can't run around with her.

No specialist, doctors didn't see it necessary. I want a 2nd opinion now..

No meds, they said Tylenol or Motrin, neither even touches this pain...

I'm so sorry you have to deal with this :( I hope you have a good doctor that can help you with pain management, maybe medical marijuana is the way to go. My mother suffers badly all of the time from arthritis and that is the only thing keeping her going. Good luck *hugs*
