Ugh

Pain is definitely high as is the nausea from it. I just want to curl up on the bathroom floor for the rest of the day, but I have a lot of stuff to do. I don't know how other people handle this so well. I started out the day trying to visualize myself saying "RSD has no power over me", but have slipped back into the "please make it stop"/"just don't hurt me" stage again. I hate that I'm not handling this as well as I should.

Hugs!
Nickie

AS far as I know, there is no law that says you are required to just tough your way through this. You are entitled to your feelings, and having those feelings doesn't make you a wimp or any less of a person. Remember, it is permissible (crucial, in fact) to take care of you, and if that means stepping off the go-go ride of life from time to time, well that's life, and nobody should judge you for that, especially yourself. And I know there is a lot of frustration bundled up in that as well. Hang in there. Hugs.

I've been there
I understand exactly what you are feeling, Nickie. Pain causes nausea and will carry it to the conclusion that you describe. So many people don't comprehend the nausea that comes from that intense RSD pain. I would end up in the Emergency Room to replenish my fluids. It is a terrible feeling. I've had to deal with it on numerous occasions. If I didn't go to the hospital - the lack of potassium could cause my heart to stop. One just can't take that chance. There is no right and wrong with what RSD brings - you handle things as they come.
