March 2021 Slice of Life challenge
Often, I'm in pain. I've been experiencing periodic pain in my lower back and my wrist. Thankfully, I haven't had the back and wrist pain simultaneously but both come and go as they please it seems. The pain arrives suddenly, gets worse and sticks around for a week or so.
It turns my normal life routine upside down. I have to trade my usual workout for sitting on my butt or lying down in bed not to exasperate the pain. I can't even take my dog for a walk when the backpain is present. It comes in and takes my mood and smashes it way low down. It makes working hard to do. I have to act and do normal things while no one around me even knows the pain that I am currently battling.
Being in pain is a very lonely place to be. No one feels how you feel. Your pain cannot be seen. No one can help ease your pain. You have to sit in it, alone until it decides to slowly dissipate. It's not a very fun place to be to all alone.
Until one day you realize the pain is no longer plaguing you. Where did it go? Will it come back? When will it come back? Please don't come back,
Back to my normal life routine. Until ...
