the shitty thing about chronic pain – say, neck pain from scoliosis – is that when NEW pain is introduced – in, for e.g., a car accident – none of your usual coping or pain-reduction tricks work. the anti-spasmodic they put me on is hopefully doing its job of preventing the new pain from worsening or having bad knock-on effects, but I kind of don’t know how to deal with the pain level I’m currently having.
the absolute WORST part about chronic plus new pain is that it moves me from “bad but deal-with-able” to “barely functional”. cross your fingers that this is temporary, ‘cause I’ve got shit to do, yo.
