Thanks for the responses guys.
Topamax, one of the main reasons I posted this was to try and vent to someone. I understand exactly what you’re saying because I do think the stress is already effecting my health.
The number of projects I’ve posted recently has been because I’ve only been doing what I consider minor project. My back has been hurting too bad for me to stand long enough to do anything of any size. Still though, the plaques I’ve done, for example, should be two to three day projects for the amount of time I’ve put in daily. Instead, they’ve been taking around a week each. As for shop time, the reason I have been putting in a lot is because, with these plaques, I can do them sitting down. I may as well sit and do them since I can’t seem to sleep much. In the last week, the only night I slept more than two to three hours was the one night that jose quervo helped me sleep.
As for the elevated pain level I’ve been experiencing, that is another source of frustration. I don’t know if the stress is causing me to hurt more, or another theory is that the pain is causing me to stress, which in turn leads to more stress related pain (yes, believe it or not, stress does elevate pain in chronic pain patients), which makes me hurt more. Oh, it’s a vicious cycle.
Shane is right. I don’t think I need a mental ward. Maybe I just need jose to help me get another good night’s sleep.
