I’ve turned into an Elliott Smith lyric, I have a broken sink for a face. Basically, my doctor thinks a nerve in my face is aggravated, it’s constantly firing pain signals. So, I’m on Dilaudid for the immediate pain, and this anti-seizure medicine that will hopefully, eventually, make that nerve stop its mis-firing. The Dilaudid fucks up my stomach, so I’m kind of sticking to liquids, tomato soup, warm chocolate soy milk. Solid food holds very little appeal to me just now. The anti-seizure medicine grogs me out, so my focus is pretty shot. Still, the pain is better and my doctors (all 47 of them) are confidant that covering the pain while calming the nerve, will eventually heal the nerve.
The whole affair is exhausting, I feel like I’m disappearing.4 comments
