day 621

I saw the pain doc yesterday.

He's pleased with how I'm doing. He doesn't want to see me again for 3 months.

He's already talking about decreasing the Methadone. I think he feels like if I lose some weight and get more active that I'll stop hurting.

The stereotype of people with excess weight in chronic pain is ridiculous.

The pain in my head and face has nothing to do with my weight or size.

However, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

I'm just glad he didn't yell at me for not going to P.T. I simply told him we couldn't afford it and that I was getting exercise by mowing 2-3 times a week with the gas-powered push mower on hillside land. He seemed to be okay with that.

Today is a rest day...I hope.
