Just a little bit of status/complaining. I am feeling sharp and keen, busy and productive, and more active the last week or so, doing things like going out of the house more than once a day, or doing the laundry (ie up and down the stairs into the garage) But ending up in too much pain at night. I am trying a tramadol today (just now) to see if it gets me through the afternoon and into the evening a little better.

How will I get older and bear this amount of pain all the time?

I want a pain holiday for real. Right now, I would take all the drugs, not from a sharp severity of pain but from emotional exhaustion and being bored with pain in some many different places, that just doesn't quit.

Still, that's better than a worse pain in a couple places or even one place that stops me from thinking and working.

Maybe will try more morning/afternoon regular tramadol? This I think is where i'm *supposed* to be thinking, "I need better pain control", in a rational way, not "I wish I had all the morphine plus a drink and some cocaine plus some sort of body cocoon thing that cradles each joint and nerve, and was in free fall, or else that I was a brain in a jar, therefore I had better not take anything in case I become addicted", or "Oh, god, I give up", which is kind of what's going on in my mind lately.

Other than that things are going well. Work is intense but fun. Hackerspace good. Though i am not there enough.

If you received a pain holiday, you would just use it to do something crazy like become a pirate and steal someone's boathouse and create a hackerspace on the high seas. Actually, that sounds like fun. You should have a pain holiday.

I worry about this also :/

My pain was best when once we went on holiday in a place with a big spa bath in the bathroom, so I could float peacefully in warm bubbly water for a long time every evening. But we can't afford to renovate our bathroom for quite a long time yet.

Take the drugs! Every day! At the same time! Even if you feel good!
