Everything hurts. My hip is swollen and my back is killing me. Last night my throat got so inflamed that I couldn't swallow. I feel like my body is falling apart. I haven't slept more than few hours a night for weeks and it's starting to mess with my head.

*hugs* Been there. I know how awful it is. Ice packs, NSAIDs, and turmeric supplements. And then a list of things to keep my mind off the pain when it's late at night and I can't sleep. Sleep music (with binaural beats) on youtube when I try to sleep and it's difficult. Naps during the day too. ER when the pain is impossible. And finding that doctor that knows their stuff and cares enough to not be offended when treatment doesn't work.

@Raine14 It's just so exhausting. I spend most of my time lying down and that helps. I used to pound ibuprofen like candy. I hate having to live my life around it.

@Griffin97 It really is. And not sleeping makes it even more exhausting. Makes the pain worse. And then sleep is even harder to find. Frustration and anger gives way to crying and "I hate this." I think it's like grieving, but instead of a loved one, we're grieving the loss of possibilities. Our possibilities.
