at pain management.
It helps to write it down so I might remember later.
My wonderful pharmacist/co-pain-manager told me that I still need to rest. Even if I feel better because of the meds, I need to still lie down, get the weight of my head off my spine and rest.
He could tell that from my telling of the events of last week, that I am an over-doer (being a past over achiever and work-a-holic).
I had somehow thought that the meds would take the pain away and I could do more...get out and do more...achieve and accomplish more...do those things that produce those good ol' endorphins that naturally deal with the pain, though only for a moment and then the fiddler must be paid.
I learned that the things I so love to do are my enemies. I learned that those things I love to do cause my pain. Perhaps like a woman who is obsessed with a man who is no good for her, I need to learn to walk on the easy side of the street and avoid that fatal attraction.
And now, I've forgotten the other important things I learned in their office today. I'm sure it will come back to me later and I will add it to this post. I remember it was an epiphany, just as the one I just mentioned was.
