when life becomes worth living

We’re so happy Marcus found a doctor to help with his pain. M

survivor road

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.

  1. So glad you found some relief! I’m glad you can sleep, sleep is a very very good thing.

    I’m on Fyntal pain patches. They’re pretty heavy duty 100 times stronger than morphine but it’s the only thing that seems 2 work for my nerve pain in my legs.
