a shout out

Day 20
I'm usually not the medication type. I prefer to TRY to heal w/o modern meds, but there IS a time and place for them (you know this if you've read about my gall bladder fiasco)... so, to the makers of Vicodin®, Skelaxin®, and 800 mg Ibuprophin - I'd like to kiss your faces and say thanks for helping reduce some of the pain my body feels. I'm not going to pretend I'm superwoman, I hurt like CRAZY and it really isn't what I expected. But the docs are saying that 40mph impact when I was completely stopped is fairly significant...
Long story short - whiplash SUCKS.

Either way, if I didn't have the medication it'd be pretty hard to function with the neck and back pain. So I'm grateful for modern meds!

Vicoden is my drug of choice (and Serax follows soon after), but what I noticed most about this little gem is that I could still feel my back pain, but somehow did not care about it -- la la la la la! Very wonderful. Great when necessary. So sorry to hear you're in pain, more than usual, from something on top of everything else. Hang in there. (((gentle hugs)))

You may also want to consider a chiropractor and/or massage to help deal with the pain. When I got whiplash, a visit to a chiro really helped.

So sorry you're in such pain. Pain Sucks.
