Unbelievable. The epidural injection worked.
I just woke up and stumbled straight for my pills, like I always do. My pain is always wicked first thing in the morning. Sometimes it takes two pills and several hours to get a handle on it. But this morning, when I opened the safe to get a pill, I realized something bizarre. I didnt need one.
I'm in shock. I cant believe this. I'm at only about a 1 or a 2. My back still feels like I've been punched, from the epidural injection, (I'm bruised and swollen pretty bad) but my arms, where my pain is, dont even hardly ache. I dont want to get excited yet. Maybe it's a fluke. Maybe I'm just trippin' out. Heck, maybe I'm still asleep and dreaming.
I dont want to tell my husband or anybody else yet. They'll get so excited and want me to be 'normal' and then if I do need a pill in a bit, they'll be so dissapointed.
I just dont know what to think. This is the first time my pain has been so low in a very very long time. It's a strange feeling.
