Poor Sunny :there::there:

I am so sorry for the pain you are in. I know how important it is for you to get off the pain meds but please, please dont be too hard on yourself. If the pain is so bad that you feel like screaming and are getting panic attacks maybe you should consider taking something.

When you first decided to come off the pain meds you wanted to have a 'safety' prescription for when the pain spikes. Remember? Sunny, the pain is spiking big time today. Perhaps it wont be as difficult tomorrow and you wont have to take something stronger for another good while. You have done remarkably well up to now but maybe your body needs a short break from the pain.

Im just worried about the impact of such overwhelming pain on your psyche and also on things like your blood pressure.

They're just my thoughts Sunny. I understand what its like withdrawing from strong pain medication. I work in a drug rehab project and I see the struggles. Sometimes people have to walk back a bit in order to move forward.

Please be safe and if you do decide to work through it without pain medication then I wish you all the strength I can muster.

Gentle hugs and much love coming your way ------------->

Lots of love
