Chronic Pain flare up

   I apologize to anybody who is currently frustrated with my performance as a human being, I am currently typing this post with one eye open because of the severe back pain I am experiencing right now. The pain is very sharp and intense as it feels like somebody is stabbing a knife into my back. This has been an ongoing pain experience for me, I can only assume that there is a monster weather system moving in from the coast or from the Arctic. 

  This time of year is especially painful for me because my body is haunted by the changing weather systems that are typical for this time of year.This knowledge does not make it any easier for me at this time of year. The pain is so intense that it wakes me in the night with hot burning sensations coursing through my spinal column, right now the pain is in the locale of my upper lumbar and the sharpness of the pain is frightening to even me. I have lived with this Chronic Pain for over 15 years now, and it is relentless, it is not like it is getting any easier because it is not.

  The pain that I am experiencing right now is so intense that the only thing that I can do is to write about it with my eyes closed. These are the days that are the most scary for me because the intensity of the pain is one thing, but the thoughts on how to escape this relentless and UN-diminishing torment are a completely different and the horror that flashes before me is difficult and terrifying to deal with.

  I cannot predict the intensity that this injury will affect me, I can only hope that I have the tenacity required to withstand these powerful pain attacks. I have been dealing with this horrific pain for over 15 years now, and it still does not get any easier knowing that my insurer, the Workers Compensation Board of Alberta is only interested in selling me Hocus Pocus fake remedies that Dr. Phil is selling on Cable Television in order to sell more furniture on

The pain is too intense at this moment for me to continue writing, I need to rest. More later. I am going to see the Doc later and my Chiropractor, I need some relief just so that I can function on a basic level.
