June 25, 2010 - New sensation

Jun 28, 2010 - 0 comments

New sensation.  Started this afternoon.  A pressure-like very intense pain down in my vaginal/anus area.  This sensation put me in the fetal position and took me to the ER.  This pain is hard for me to explain.  I have never felt it before and I wasn't able to find relief for it myself.  It stayed at a level of 8, but would come in wave-like periods of level 10.  It seemed to provoke my "regular" nerve pain into action and made it increase.  ER gave me some nausea medication in the IV and then gave me 1 mg of morphine.  It took the pain away.  I threw up twice on the way home.

06-28-10 First counseling session

Jun 28, 2010 - 2 comments

Well, I went for my first session this afternoon.  I have a little feeling that this is not going to be the right fit for me.  She seemed nice enough and most of the time I can talk to just about anyone.  But, she was telling me that everything that people experience, they choose.  HUH???  I told her I didn't choose this wheelchair...or weak legs....or pain.  She just looked at me, then restated what she had just said.  


Then she kept interrupting our discussion to talk about little things about her other clients.  She didn't mention any names, but (to me) that doesn't matter.  I do not think it is very professional for her to be telling me about her other clients.

I will go to the next appointment next week and see how it goes.  She has the cutest little Westie puppy, so at least it won't be a complete loss.  lol

But, if I still feel the same way after visit number 2, I will stop seeing her.  My energy is pulled from reserves at this time...I need to use it wisely.

Well, I am a little nervous about the cramping I started having today.  They seem like the monthly cramps, but with what happen Friday night, my guard is up a little.  I can feel some pressure in my pelvic floor area.  Just playing the wait and hopefully not see game....
