It’s Way Too Painful ……

…… to sit and write much of a post.

Sigh …… if it’s not one thing, it’s another.
The pleurisy that I fought with last week has pretty much abated to nothing.
Thank goodness.

But the pain underneath my shoulder blades has retuned with a vengeance.
It started yesterday, under my right shoulder blade, and by bed time I knew it was going to be a rough night.
It was an even rougher day.
The pain has been horrific and I can’t move without it shooting through my body at such an intensity as to leave me breathless.
Every once in a while I’m forced to use the Lamaze breathing, but it’s not helping. It’s all I can do to not just sit down and cry.

Tonight the pain is heading towards the area between my shoulder blades. And the pain is so bad that I feel nauseous.
What the hell is this about?!
Yes, I’ve been experiencing a lot of stress. More on that later.
It hurts too much to just sit in one spot and write.

Let me just say that moving by oneself sucks.
It shouldn’t be allowed.
But there you go.

If I spend much time thinking about all of the friends I’ve helped move over the past 20 plus years, I cry.
So I try not to do that.
It doesn’t change anything anyway.

The house is starting to look pretty great, so that’s good.

I wanted to end on a positive note.
Now I’m going to crawl into bed and pray for either an end to this pain, or a quick death.
Either would be welcome at this point.

    I’m sooo sorry you’re going through this. It sounds so much like what I’ve been through with my back, and in wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy! I pray you find relief, and possibly a surgeon that can fix it for good! I love you!!

    I am sorry you are not feeling well, but with our exquisite widow timing it would have to be while you are moving. I am here to tell you that while moving yourself sucks and yes I have also moved a whole pile of friends over the years, who pretty much became invisible when I asked for help, you can do it, you will do it. I did it. I am proof positive.

    I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’ve had my fair share of shoulder pains and I know how painful it can get. As much as I want to suggest any remedy to you I think the best thing for you to do is to see a doctor. You’ve seemed to have tried your own way to relieve the pain but obviously it’s no working, remedies can only do so much and I think that it has reached its limit this time. I really hope you see a doctor about your shoulder so you can get a professional diagnosis and feel better as soon as possible.
