i don’t want anyone to get the impression the my life is perfect. far from it. but pain is no longer a motivator to give up. the new prescription of extended release oxymorphone is actually working. My pain, though not “gone” – is typically a level 1 or 2 on the infamous 1-to-10 scale. i’m sleeping again. say the doctor yesterday and he said i almost looked happy.
sleep is a wonderful thing. i recommend everyone give it a try.
of course, i’m still jumping through hoops here at work getting authorized to be on a narcotic medication while at work. i suppose that’s what i get for working at a hospital.
but for all intents and purposes – i am pain free. or close enough to call it pain free. and for the days of “break through pain” – i have percocet standing by waiting to help me out.
i almost don’t mind getting up in the mornings …
