It's 02.54 and I'm downstairs drinking a cup of Horlicks, having been awake, tossing and turning, for the past hour and a half. I'm in so much pain from all the prodding, poking and yanking the GP did yesterday morning (he did keep apologising), and the very uncomfortable 20 mins spent lying flat on my back under strict orders not to move a muscle in the MRI scanner.
I'm just so tired of being in constant pain, it colours everything about my life. I can understand why and how people become addicted to pain medication, but I'm not going down that route....hence why I don't take painkillers regularly, although the consultant I saw yesterday said I should, and that codeine would be the drug of choice. Well, it makes me terribly constipated, and it's addictive, so it's not something I am inclined to take with any regularity.
I feel downright miserable at the moment, sorry to be on such a downer. I'll snap out of it eventually.
