Where was I...maybe mid story about another dimension of my denial tendencies?...Ah yes.
Denial became reality the following day...when a bolt of lightning pain shot through my right hip down through to my right foot. I won't give the unlovely details of my sobbing and screaming and feeling like death from pain was possible...you may be one who knows exactly what I would describe. If so, I tip my hat to your brave and overcoming strength!! It hurts soooo freaking bad
I was in panic mode but tried to send out prayer request texts...who knows who received my cry for help, I had zero cognisance abilities at this point...I merely felt like every pain demon that operates against God Almighty were presently having a pain-fest inside my body. Thank you if you "happen" to be one of those text receivers, and have been able to pray for me. Based on the text logs in my inbox it looks like the horrid pain-fest lasted over an hour. After the pain-fest demons flew away they left only the consequences of a numb right foot, inability to support my body weight, what felt like electricity buzzing through the leg and a physical moratorium on sitting or lying down. I was powerless to do anything but limp around upright begging for relief. Finally, several hours later, I some how got into a semi sitting position and was able to fall asleep.
So here I lay...obeying doctors orders of staying as horizontal as I possibly can with the goal of seeing if the nerve activity will become more normal.
Hope in the Living God and pain meds produce this smile....
