I admit it takes a little getting used to.  But it's different.  smile.gif

The worst pain I remember feeling was muscle cramps.  Which sounds not bad, but was still pretty bad.

 

Basically, post-marathon, dehydrated, body temperature down a degree.  They put me on a gurney, give me an IV, and start heating me up.  All of which is fine.  But now I'm not moving around, and my legs start to seize BIG TIME.  And there was really nothing I could do about it.

 

It's possible the worst pain I've ever felt was a spinal tap.  I cried like a baby.  Alas, I was a baby, so I don't remember it.

 

Overall, though, nothing like what MF is going through.  So I have nothing but sympathies.

Basically that's caused by uneven pressure in your head due to a hole in your spine, and it only goes away when doctors inject your own blood into your back to fill the hole with a clot. You have to lie down for 24 hours without moving while in utter agony.

 

Passing a kidney stone that was almost too large to pass? Yeah, that trumped it. The epidural headache still comes out on top due to the sheer length of time of the suffering involved. However just in terms of raw intensity this takes the cake. Like, several orders of magnitude higher than what I assumed it would feel like. Worse than any tooth-related pain which surprised me (as for some reason I'm super-sensitive about anything mouth related). The only saving grace was that it lasted about four minutes tops. Any longer and I would have most certainly passed out from it.

 

Sorry to hear, that's quite a list for someone your age. Fingers crossed that destiny may give you a well-deserved break from now on...

Let me tell you, peeing blood is scary. I've had kidney stones before, but nothing this big: it was about as big as you can get without totally obstructing the pathway.

I just want to wrap you in my blanket and keep you safe from the world.

Yeah those are the ones. Didn't know there were multiple movies made though. He also talked a lot about a Sado movie, or was it Sodom or something. Not really the kind of movies I usually watch myself.

The playlist should be pretty finished, no?

Pasolini's Salo probably. Good times, and fun for the whole family!

And yikes MF, how the hell does someone experience all that at your age? Most I've gone through in 29 years is breaking the same arm twice. Hope nothing painful afflicts you in the near or distant future. Sounds like you could use a break :/

As I understand the process, it is you who needs to pass it, namely pushing to pea rocks, to your focus is not on something else tongue_smile.gif

EDIT: you were talking about the Tibia...really need to go on a weekend.

 

Well...Happy it is Saturday, so there :thumb: you go!

Wait a sec, when the heck did you get an HE-500? (lucky dog)

In my experience, cute makes everything better.  smile.gif

 

Now we just have to make sure Driver is okay.  Are we still doing the pain management playlist?  Doesn't seem like there's much interest though.  Maybe just you and I could make up a playlist.  Say... five songs each?

I think he ended up doing five, one to cover each room.  Then he went back and covered Mr. Speakers and UE in more detail.  Not quite being there, but oh well.  There will be more meets.  Not to mention a homecoming.  wink.gif

 

 

1) Will visit my library late tonight to see what 5 tracks I'd contribute if we move on it...

 

2) I already know in advance that I'm going to be feeling beside myself. And dare to say confused as to what to do first and with whom. It might all become overwhelming, leaving me with the desire to simply wait in the dark... and keeping silent. And then go out and lose my mind the following weekend impromptu style - where ever I happen to be, just doin' it like I know I can! evil_smiley.gif

It's a loaner set. I'm trying to see if it's worth me going without solid food for a while in order to own one.

Did you get the velour pads with it too, or just the ones pictured?  They make a difference.

post #8160 of 21761
Speaking of HE500 (or whichever it is) I've been reading about the jergpads and am wondering of a scheme to try a similar approach with my Nami-chan. It'll be very costly though since I imagine it's more trial and error, at least for me.
