In Pain

I have been in a lot of physical pain,I have a bad shoulder a rotator cuff,it’s been ok for a great while but I did something to it last week and even since I have been it great pain

I don’t do pain well,I hate when I’m limited to have to slow done,I can’t take real pain medicine any more my body can’t take it as well as my mind

I hate being a patient,my mood has been low,I had trouble sleeping,my mind is all over the place like a map of the United States

So I am reaching out today because I am low in my soul,I am playing sea hunt in my spit

If I was a fish I would be a bottom feeder

I have  been doing anti inflammatory medicine,ice,white willow which also an anti inflammatory,and drink

Still it’s a long road

As always Sheldon

  1. Sheldon, sorry to read of your pain! Rotator cuff injuries take a long time to heal. Yes, anti-inflammatory meds do work, ice is helpful, and if you can, go to physical therapy! You’ll probably need a referral from your primary care doc for that though. I can relate! I’ve had rotator cuff injuries over the years. Just know it does get better. The long term after care is up to you with band exercises and strengthening shoulder muscles. Good luck! Hope the pain lessens! Christine
