Feels Like the First Time

Posted Aug 25 2008 6:28pm

I finally realized yesterday and today that I've done something I haven't done in quite awhile.



Ladies and gentlemen....I've made progress.



Progress. PROGRESS!!!!



In my struggles with IC/PFD and vulvodynia I have found very little to be helpful other than just not doing anything...and even that is not helpful. This weekend, though I had bouts of pain and fatigue, I finally realized that I'm not in the same ballpark of pain that I was before. I was able to have sex and not be completely debilitated afterwards. And while that may be personal and not a big issue to some, it's a HUGE issue for me.



I think the combination of everything I've been doing is FINALLY helping. Here's what I've been doing that I feel contributes to my progress:

1. Physical therapy. Without it, this progress would be nonexistent.

2. Switch from Lyrica to Neurotonin. I've had relief much quicker.

3. TENS Unit. I actually decided to get a home unit and I'm using it quite a bit--every other day or so. It helps a lot.



I'm nowhere near done with this and there will be setbacks along the way, but it's so nice for ONCE to be moving forward instead of backwards. It's a small step for some, but a giant leap for Mekind.



Now if I could only move forward in other health-related areas. This is inspiration though.
