And the V.A. says nothing's wrong: learn to live with it ...

A nerve, trapped, [p]inched to
pursed lips of pain. Sleep is
inter//rupted with each turn in
the bed. Neck, croOked to
facilitate ease of movement.
Lightning !buzzes! down the
arm. Hisses of thunder sound
with change of position. Rain
drops from my eyes, as tears.
A storm rages!! as I am slowly
pulled apart, one. Vertebra. At.
A. Time. Past the break.point ...
(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (4/16)

|Pain, that's not anything God will do, maybe a strong prayer will shoo away that little devil cauising it.
Get better, that's an order!

|Sharing the pain with you dear sister. You said it so perfectly that you have brought it too close to our hearts. You are ever in my prayers|
|Reviewed by Michael Guy
|a pinched never is a real thing if it's that... but I have found that neck pain and back pain is also real but sometimes no doctors can help. I hope you find help but I had to turn to special "Yoga" exercises to get help for my lower back (and it is helping) Still it's a struggle. I think if we didn't have to sleep it would be easier! You write about LIFE (pain & joy included!)|
|Reviewed by Karen Vanderlaan
|well expressed--i am sorry you hurt--what happened?|
|Reviewed by Paul Berube
|I agree with Bernice; you are a poetic genius. I can well relate to this one Karla. Pain has become part of my every awakening moment of late. Rheumatod arthritis flarring up throughout the whole body ain't no fun at all. They say misery loves company. Don't you believe it. I'll pray for you my friend. God bless.
