Yes I could phone the neurosurgeon but I’m forever the optimist and think that tomorrow or next week it will have settled down.
The pain is painful but also more annoying as it feels like having acupuncture over my leg, hip and buttock
Just me having a whinge .. and releasing some frustration.
Mate I feel your pain quite literally, I have major depression caused in part from the CP and from being bullied at work for a number of years. When I spoke to my shrink about taking it to WC she said no as the stress would kill me, and as I was suicidal at the time she meant that quite literally. Between the crap from WC and the crap from the lawyers and the having to stand up in court I don't think I would manage, I have a lot of respect for those of us that have the courage and strength to fight the fight.
In hearing you, one of my diagnoses is severe depression... I can say I’m not suicidal but admit the thought of dying gives me a feeling of release .. I know that sounds mixed and contradictory but it’s not ... I could not end my life, the thought of the pain it would cause is worse than the pain I put up with.
severe depression - yep, tick that box for me too
I have been hospitalised a few times now for speaking about wanting to die, the medical profession panics and thinks you are suicidal.. but its very different - for me anyway..
I wont actively kill myself, but if my time was up.. id be so thankful, to finally be rid of the pain and no longer burden my family .. free!
dreary conversation for some, sorry
I hope everyone can have a good day
Be3n there and I don’t have the damned t-shit though the gateway bridge in Brisbane looked good the three times I stopped so did the handful of pills but I had woken those mornings and I was going to wake up tomorrow that’s what kept me going plus grand children we have 5 now in September it’ll be 6 .
As like as I wake up alive it’s a good day and there is always someone who is worse off than me “Steven Hawking “ and the inspirational guy without arms or legs .
I’m just thankful that I can wipe my own behind so be thankful of small mercies
as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse
