My Day-Self Care, Pain Management

I had an appointment first thing this morning with my pain management doctor. Both of my Achilles have been killing me for months now. I finally caved today and asked for a Cortisone injection. They also gave me an ant-inflammatory injection. That was my first for the anti-inflammatory. Let me tell ya! It burned! Then the site began itching! Bad! I guess I looked pretty funny walking to my car, scratching my butt cheek!

Rest of my day I will be resting. Though I do feel better, I can tell I need rest. I try to limit my injections but sometimes I need the help. Today was one of those times. It’s just the way it is. Chronic pain management is not a pretty thing. We do what we have to. I’m curled up, relaxing and enjoying a day of naps, reading and horror movies. It’s my day of self-care.
