Doctor appointment day.

gloomy forest by gorchakov.artem

Things change today, one way or another. I’m starting this post before my doctor appointment, I’ll post again afterward so I can blog about how it went.

I’m not as gloomy about the thought of upping my medication as I have been. I guess the pain is just too much now that it makes me feel option-less. Just getting through the day lately has been an enormous challenge and it’s exhausting. I wake up in the morning after another largely sleepless night and feel utterly melancholy at the thought of doing it all over again.

I’ve been spending most of my days this week sitting, hunched over forwards, because it’s the only way I can lessen the pain in my back. Of course it’s uncomfortable in a dozen other places but it’s the best I can do right now. I can’t stand very long at all before the pain is nearing unmanageable. 

Thanks again for all of your support! It really does mean the world to me. I’m hoping things turn around soon, I’m tired of the negative posts. I’d like to have something happy or uplifting to say! Hopefully soon, yeah? :)

Note: I know I just posted this song (with it’s official video) but afterwards I found this amazing animated version by an incredible artist named Ryan Woodward. I love it!!

  1. Hi Katie,
    So sorry about the pain. Mine has been chronic/very high since the EDS just hit 12 years and I can’t take narcotics and they don’t work. I just say that I live in a torture chamber. I have lots of problems with sitting and beds and when I do sit, it better be a comfy (what’s that?) chair and I need a big down pillow behind my back. That’s how I’m sitting right now, not that it’s great by any means. I can’t imagine having to lean forward. Ugh. My EDS pain is all myofascial unless it rains, so rather an oddball, but that would just kill my back even more! Oh, I so hate that you have a CTD too. :(
    I hope things improve after seeing the doctor…
    Hugs! A

    Hugs and good luck.
