Counting my life...

Took another day off yesterday... not so much the pain the the neck/shoulder but the medication the night before that probably caused me to stay awake till the morning and some gastric discomfort. My GP told me to get off the bedtime medication for nerve stabilizing and prescribed some mild pain killers. She looked through my history and realized I have not visited her in 2012 until August when I started visiting her with increasing frequency.

She also spoke of how one of her patients who had the same problem as me, got a jab from the specialist, decreased from visiting her once a week to zero in the last 3 years! Definitely contemplating that jab but the knowledge of the needle being so near my spine is a bit unnerving for me...

Whatever it is I feel that I need to put a stop to this... its affecting my work, my life, my everything. If I need 8 hours of sleep then I get 16 hours to do whatever I need to do. Right now I get 100 out of a possible 112 hours because I get knocked out by this pain for that 12 hours a week. Basically that means in 11 years I will lose 1 year of my life, no? That's alot of time...
