I hit the wall

Hi All

Yes I hit the wall!! what do I mean? well as some of you know I have nerve damage to my spine, this causes me to live in extreme pain, ( I also have others things wrong with me) usually my condition is kept under control using medication. There are times when I have a crisis and last week was one of them.
 My legs filled up with fluid and I had a lot of pain.
With trepidation I visited my  GP, he is new to me, I usually have to go through everything and they always seem to be the one that wants to mess about with my medication. This one was a little poppet, he took time with me and we had quite a chat,  he gave a stronger medicine that I can take when I get break through pain and drugs to help get through of the fluid.

The outcome of this I have been sleeping and resting a lot, I am now hopefully coming out of it, and will soon be able to get back to my minis.

I knew that at some time this would happen, stress affects me and brings on a crisis and as you remember I nursed my mum and then had all the stress of her funeral and sorting of her belongings.
I don't usually reveal to much about my condition and most of the time I can get on with it, but there are times where I need extra help, 

See you all soon xx

Prayers said that this medication will give you much needed relief. Hopefully things will become less stressful for you now. I can't imagine living in that kind of pain. Here is a BIG HUG for you. But a gentle one at the same time.

Hi Debbie, what a relief to you to have the attention that you needed from someone who took your pain seriously,and knew how to help you. I am so happy that you are beginning to feel better because of the medications. Stress is such a difficult thing to know what to do with and as you mentioned, you have had more than your share. Thank you for sharing your burden and letting us know, how at the right time, God sent you a
"little poppet"
