When You’re Hurting

Originally published at Mythusmage Today. You can comment here or there.

In this month's issue of National Geographic there is an article on pain (paywall). Has information on what pain is, what causes pain, and how we handle pain. Particularly interesting is the information on those who don't handle pain the way most of us do, such as a woman who really doesn't feel pain. At least not as intently as most of us do.

In the same issue there is an article on pain killers, and especially on the addiction that sometimes occurs in those who use the opioids. It is a devastating addiction, and ranks up there along with alcohol and nicotine. The article in question also prompted this observation:

An addiction is not a moral issue, an addiction just is.

Properly speaking an addiction is just a physical dependency on something. An addiction has nothing to do with any moral quality a person may have or not have. My Dad was addicted to nicotine, his moral standing played no role in the matter. An alcoholic is just addicted to alcohol, his ethics mean nothing when you get right down to it.

The next to the last time I was in a crisis house the staff insisted that everybody attend AA meetings. Meaning everybody. The assumption being that if you had to be there you had to be an alky. That is prejudice and it drove me out of the house. The staff of a crisis house is not supposed to be there to bully the clients, they're supposed to be there  to help the clients. Still, bully they did, and that means I can't turn to something like a crisis house in the case of a crisis.

What it comes down to is, there are no moral answers to addiction. Dealing with addiction involves withdrawal and will power. You need to stop drinking, you need to be a stubborn bitch and have a community around you that understands and won't moralize.

After my operation I'll be taking Oxybutynin at 5mg 3 times a day for the pain. I may find myself addicted to it. I'm not going to like it, for the addiction will mean that I'm being controlled by an outside agency and I don't like that. It's bad enough I have to take Prozac for my depression, but at least there it's a chronic condition that I won't recover from. In time I will recover from the surgery and I won't need the Oxy to kill the pain for the pain will go away.

Now one thing the article on pain notes is that most people given a distraction really don't notice their pain. When he was a nine year old my brother, John, needed to have a gash sewn up. So the doctor gave him a comic book to read as the stitches were put in, and John never noticed when the sewing started. Even today when I'm distracted the pain I'm having at the moment sort of disappears. It works because we stink at multitasking, we just ain't smart enough to handle more than one detail at a time. I can't. I can notice a number of details all at once, but I can't handle them and that can lead me to freaking out.

Which leads me to two more observations. First, that for me knowing my problem is being dealt with will relax me and with that relaxation my pain will fade into the background. Second, my accepting the pain means I will relax and the pain I feel will ease. This will most likely be the case with any pain I have post surgery.

And all this thinking I've been doing has inspired another post, but since it is another topic entirely it can wait for later.

Hope you're all doing well, and remember that pain is your body's way of telling you, "Stop that!"

False Start

Went to the hospital to get pre-admitted for a later operation, only to learn that Dr. Sur wasn't really ready. So it was come home, recover as much as I could from the experience, and to get ready for this Saturday the 18th when I should be going in to prepare for the cutting. Communication is necessary folks.

Anticipation

Originally published at Mythusmage Today. You can comment here or there.

Is stressing me and keeping me up. For later today I go into the hospital to get ready for an operation. One of my left kidney in which the surgeon will be removing a pair of kidney stones, and then threading a string down the urethra to dangle out little Willie. I wouldn't dare go sky-clad around a cat in that situation.

I suspect the dread is in part due to my autism, but I have the feeling this is the sort of situation most mundanes wouldn't be comfortable with.

But in any case it does mean I will be off line for a few days. But I will have the chance to do a bit of writing in a composition book using my fountain pen. Expect some essays on Friday or later. And what's making you twitch?

In Pursuit of my Ride

Further to my quest for a scooter to get around on I have the following to say:

  1. The Social Security office in San Diego is located a few blocks from the downtown jail. Our county sheriff pretty much demanded that those bus stops closest to the local Social Security Office be shut down so that escapees from the jail couldn't use city buses to escape. So our city council of the time order the stops closed. This means I have further to walk from the stop closest to Social Security in San Diego, and that's really beyond me at the moment. I need to physically visit the Social Security office in San Diego in order to replace my Medicare card. Help me get a scooter and you'll help me get my Medicare card.
  2. I also could use a scooter to visit the Traveller's Aid office in San Diego. There I can provide proof of income and with that proof get assistance with things such as cab vouchers and the like. Would make it easier for me to go shopping for groceries and the like, what with having to use a walker to get around.

So there you have two more reasons why I should get a scooter, and two more justifications for donations from you.

Donate

Of course the osteoarthritis in hips and knees does play a role in all this.

I Confess

I was wrong, the Iranians did shoot down the Ukrainian flight. It wasn't a mechanical problem, it was a hostile action. In addition it looks like a growing number of Iranians want to see the supreme leader out for his role in the atrocity. Though I do expect the officer who authorized the firing of the missiles is likely to get executed for his role in the matter.

Now my confession is nothing big when you get right down to it, but I was wrong and it's up to me to correct my mistake.

Apology

Originally published at Mythusmage Today. You can comment here or there.

Sorry, but right now I'm not feeling all that great. I'm woozy, I move too fast and my head starts to spin, and I really don't have the strength it'll take to walk to the nearest bus stop. Or the nearest grocery for that matter.

I do have an operation coming up on the 16th of this month, and that may make a world of difference, but still I'm going to need a scooter to help me get around. For this reason I'm presenting a donation button for donations to help me pay for a scooter.
