I fail to sympathize with people who tell me about their bad days. Bad days? What could possibly have happened, I really can't imagine anything so bad that anyone would have to tell a person with chronic pain that the toll collector took too long to give them change, or that their boss yelled at them.
I get smoked when I am forced to endure on the top of my pain that some tiny thing in some tiny person's life, that things didn't go perfectly for them today.
Soon, some of the people with whom I'm enrolled in this pain clinic will tell parts of their stories. I hope you hear something that you'd like to hear and develop a new connection.
We're all here to try a novel approach to pain management: since the med's don't work, what would happen if one were to remove all...Yup, ALL MED's? Could it possibly hurt worse? We're under the care of a pain doc at one of the world's best hospitals who believes the opposite. He believes that most of your and my pain will disappear. Getting to the point of no med's is hellacious. More follows...God bless us all, Colin
