That is the question.

What do you do?

Whether to abandon efforts to ingnore the silent heart's call of ........especially in the mornings light's........the real pain of neuropathy; to ignore the arrows and stings of arms, legs etc. To shun or not the call of ache that lies not so deep under the skin... that is the question. Perhaps it is more virtureous to winse and say that my pain is great with focus and stretch and strain the muscles and with the heavy breath the follows. To forgo the non-effort that drives and to be active with resolution..

Or, to per-chance seek a remedy and to go the length to ease the crawling and burning inside that wels up to conquer your very attitude of the day. 

Then begs a question of how far the remedy doeth go; the full measure of the body or just to tickle the pain spots within;.

Perhaps a Pill, a patch or a just a more possitive attitude.

For sook.... shall I seek relief with my behavior or deed and not lanquish only but let my feelings blow in the wind..To instead enjoy the labour of effort; to exhort the bodies lateral and other movement that produces some persieved relief.

In other words what do you do about neruropathy or Fibro pain? Ha confused

    Very good I am sure Mr William Shakespeare would appreciate your work. I certainly feel like the ill fated Prince of Denmark some days.

    My answer to this question was to seek medical help and after much suffering from 'slings and arrows', ended up on a low dose of Lyrica, which lessens the pains without taking it away completely but a least the side effects are not too bad. Positive attitude helps, but when you are in bad pain it is pretty hard to be positive. 

    Good luck with your decision and keep up the great work.

      I bet you thought it was silly at first.I am glad you like it. A 13 yearr old replied ?????,     I thought that was funny.

      I take neurotin......... and prazozin for vessal relaxation and PTSD etc.

      I get so tired of the same old pain all the time, especially in the mornings when I wake up. I have insomnia and am lucky if I am sleep by 3 AM. I streach ALOT. I hurt even after my operation to remove a Syovial Cyst. I am still recovering from nerve damage because I waited so long before surgery on my back. The less than funny thing is that he and other surgeons are the ones who waited too long. They actually used to say the pain was all in my head .....and some actually laughed at me.

      Another surgeon said I need a hietial surgery but it was two risky because of a birth stomach operation for upside-down stomach. He said I might not make it through.

      I re and re-charge the nerve stimulater IN my neck and  it helps unless I overcharge. It's not supposed to but the stimulator helps with pain from my 3 shoulder surgeries and my two neck surgeries to my C area in my back.

      Now my Bipolar 2 was DXed later as Major depression then to dissasociative amnesia and idenity disorder and now I just take meds and say it is what it is.

      My severe falls and concussions did damage but I am still alive even though my vision is not what it use to be.

      I must still be somewhat Ok as my realatively new wife got mad today because I mentioned and she overheard  that I used to date a girl in Jenks, Oklahoma.

      It was nice to get your reply.biggrin

      well put loved what you wrote. I dont take anything for pain relief as alergic to opids. so just manage the pain with wheat bags and water bottles. having a positive attitude helps if you can keeping calm and trying not to stress worry as stress worry makes our condition worse. take a day at a time get through it as best you can. and paceing ourselves is very important, as if we do over do things we end up paying for it big time. fibro loves biting us back. take caresmile

    Hello David,

    Lovely piece, I think the answer is to stand free in the morning light with your arms outstretched and to let your feelings swirl in the blowing of the wind and contemplate the lightening of the sky while tasting the salty air blowing off the sea, or to feel the rain softly falling on your face and running down the sides of your neck. To feel alive, and to enjoy something in the life we have, for this is all we have.

      Amen. One Good thing about the issues we have is that it keeps us talking to God and helps of to know what is important in life.biggrin

      I am sure you will agree that it is hard at times and the so called victories are ,anytimes hollow. I am sure you will agree that it is all worth it now and surely worth it herefter.

      Amen David..some sceptics have said to me..: " now where is your God.." when I'm suffering...it's not Gods fault I say....people still build houses in the Asian Andreas fault line..then say. When they have a earth quake, where us God..blame blame blame..what a squire vuew of it all sone have..it's funny nearly everyone says they don't believe in God and Jesus Christ yet they really believe they are going to heaven when they die.....they are just sooo shocked to learn that God owns heaven... Truly  if I didn't know Him..I wouldn't have the strength to deal with my life..I love these bible verses..The joy of the Lord is my strength...I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" my favourite verse is from Psalm 23 verse 1. The Lord is my Sheperd I shall never want..be blessed David..have a lovely day..:-) xxx
