Who wants some pain?
I have a bit too much today. I'm looking to give some away. So if you're having yet another wonderful, perfect day and you're tired of perfection I am willing to be generous so you to can experience a little bit of misery.
x(

You can take your choice of what pain you want.

1. The migraine that won't fully go away.
2. The swollen knee that I can't put pressure on.
3. The lower back muscle spasms
4. The arm muscle cramps from walking on crutches while dealing with 2 and 3.
5. The existential pain of having no working computer for the past week, and no access to my files, writing, and games that I keep on that computer.

Offer voice where prohibited. certain terms and conditions may apply. :silly:

2. I've accepted that today is going to be horrible.
I'm holding on to hope for tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a good day. :)

Thank you.

3. I'm sorry Thom.
I do know what lower back pain is all about. Fortunately I have not had any in quite a while.

Are you getting your computer fixed? I know some guys here in Brooklyn I can recommend. :hi:

4. I'm going to buy a new one.
Though I'm going to reuse some of the components from the old one.

The motherboard is shot, the design of that computer sucked from day one and it was prone to overheating. So I think I'm better off in the long run just replacing it.

Though I would like to know someone good to turn to for upgrades and maintenance. :)

11. The guys I know are in Bay Ridge.
They are from China and they are very good, but I'm sure Bay Ridge is inconvenient for you. There are probably some good shops in SI as well, I'd be happy to help you look for them.

6. You are wonderful!
One down. Four more to go. :silly:

Wouldn't it be nice if pain really could be sent like that, and could get lost in transit? :)

17. I already took a stronger pain killer.
I unfortunately outgrew vicodin and similar painkillers 2 years ago.

Right now I'm trying to balance how numb I need to be with how high I don't want to be. So I'm only a little numb and only a little high. :)

:hug: Hugs are wonderful medication. They don't help much with the pain, but they definitely help with any depression that might come with the pain. I'm trying not to get down today.

21. Oh sweetie, I would take it all from you if I could.




The only thing I can think of over the distance is to refocus your attention on something which will permeate your consciousness, for example, The Llama Song.


But that would probably make things worse.


:(



So here's a hug. It's the biggest and best one I have:

I hate having to rely on meds, but I'm fortunate. They're mostly working for me, and I have good doctors backing me up. Once the worst passes, things should get back to an even keel. :)

The IT tech manager came by
and proscribed Vodka in large amounts. He's bringing it over in a few. Come on over and join us! :7

I've had hot flashes regularly since I was 22 as a side effect of other medical stuff. Not fun at all but I'll happily take those from you. Compared to everything else, I can handle hot flashes no problem.

I took another dose of painkiller and another migraine pill, so I'm a bit wonky. Everything is fading except the muscle spasms and part of the migraine. I'm going to get through this day somehow.

He's a kick-ass surgeon, and he knows the meds and treatments better than anyone else I've ever spoken to. He'll definitely hook you up. :P

I really do empathise, from one who used to have such excruciating pain that she couldn't walk for a couple of years, and thought she'd end up in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. (the Goddesses smiled upon me and the pain went into remission)

Considering where I've been, I can take some. Probably a lot.
