The human body is a tricky thing. It gives us warning signals if something goes arye. If one’s blood pressure is not normal, the body communicates via dizziness or lightheadedness or in my case, excruciating pain due to inflamed joints and muscles. But what happens if the warning signals are never quenched? What if there’s no relief for the root of the problem? What does one do?
Upon my return to the US from my vacation in Jamaica I have been experiencing nonstop pain. My entire body is engulfed by it. The pain torments me through the night and immobilizes me in the day. The alarm never grows silent. It is relentless in firing away. The warning signals are in constant flight mode and nothing seems to appease it. Gabapentin… No! Lyrica… No! Ibuprofen… No! Natural medicine and supplements… Not fast enough! What is a girl to do? MORPHINE!
As I write this, I battle with the decision to go to the ER. I long for sleep and peace and frankly I am desperate. I know the risks of this drug are great but do I really have any other choice? I long for a magic pill that will take away my pain without the detrimental side effects. It there’s an alternative to this, let me know.
