nanami cowdroy cranesI will make this post brief as the dose of Vicodin that I finally caved in to is kicking in about now. I have decided to attend the 3-week long Pain rehabilitation program at the Mayo in Rochester. At present it is scheduled at a time that absolutely will not work, I am hoping that they will have appointments in October as there would be a lull is schoolwork around then. While the thought of missing 3 weeks of school appalls me to my core, the reason I am part-time this year is so that I can get my health under control. A fact that my best friend and roommate pointed out. The Lyrica is helping a lot but I’m still having some intense pain, the Tramadol barely takes the edge off and I’m trying to stay off of narcotics if I can hep it. As I am trying to find a job this trip may prove problematic in that regard, but I really need to go and will find some way around it. If I have to work a terrible job I can just quit [fast food maybe?] and then get a decent job upon my return so be it. Point being I WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN. I am going to discuss it with my family very soon.

  2. Decisions like this are always difficult. Sometimes they feel like defeat instead of a way to liberate ourselves (kind of like using your cane …). I hope everything works out for you and the pain clinic does, indeed, provide some relief.
