early

I got up with hubby today after a decent night's sleep assisted by Vicodin and Xanax. I made his breakfast, made sure he was ready for work, and then, before he left, I was out the door and on my way to the grocery store. I figured I might as well get it over with while I still felt relatively okay and the weather was still cool.

I was there, got the shopping done, and got home before 8. Now most everything is put away and I'm relaxing a bit before I take a pain pill and get some more rest.

I think I'm coming to accept that the medicine and the need for it is not going to go away. I'm not happy with it, but I'm accepting it. I just hope my doc doesn't have a fit when he finds out I need more than what he probably thinks I should be taking. Since the attack on Monday I just can't get through even a day without it, and most days I'm taking at least 2 doses. I don't know what else to do. I do know that I hurt more, and still all the time, and we need to look into doing something that will help with that so I can at least function here in the house. If I have to stop driving, fine. I can deal with that now. I don't go out much on my own, anyhow.

The pain is coming back so I'd better go take more drugs. Ah, the story of my life...maybe I'll sleep through The Matrix again.

Hi, just tracking back from your comment. :)

The neurologist and the optometrist both said that they see this with women between 20-30 who are 'overweight', and that cerebral-spinal fluid builds up putting pressure on the optic nerve. Have you heard anything like that?

It sounds like you're dealing with some severe, debilitating pain. :(
