The Drugs Don’t Work… So Talk?

I’ve been on anti-everything for so long yet I still feel everything I’m supposed to be anti. Killers, relaxants, controllers. The only controllers that work are connected to my Sony PlayStation. Save for the ones for the bladder problem.

It’s hard work juggling medication, meditation, mastication and masturbation (it rhymed) day after day when your head is bursting with every feeling known to mankind and pain that’s become a grating nuisance twenty-four seven.

I find it very hard to comprehend why there are no medications out there that help neuropathic pain. Except a certain smoked substance, that’s been the best I’ve tried however you’re judged and introduced to those rehab programmes. Why is a plant that’s medicine a bad thing if it makes my life less psychologically difficult?

Have you noticed the trend for talking therapies becoming more and more prevalent? Is there some cull on medication to save money and now people are told to talk about their experiences. Talking and “coming to terms with it“. That’s what I was advised recently. I was shocked. It was a very dismissive way to address my pleas for help especially combined with the effects on my mental health.

I have fibromyalgia, femoral nerve injury, hip and pain in legs from how I walk and a compressed L5 nerve that’s causing unholy amounts of anguish. Plus a sprinkle of Functional Neurological Disorder.

I’ve to “come to terms with it” because the drugs don’t work anymore and they won’t look at different alternatives. I’m furious because how can talking possibly help pain?

It doesn’t. I’ve been talking since I was sixteen about all manner of things including devastating events in life and body. Nothing has changed. The pain always wins.

Can’t wait for the year’s worth of Dialectical Behavioural Therapy I’m about to undertake. I will be certainly doing a lot of talking.

The only coping techniques that help are getting the hedgecutter out or playing intense video games. Aggressive physical activity helps to briefly refocus onto something else which is in itself, a fantastic drug.

You have to do what is right for you and don’t let anybody dismiss your feelings. Fight. Complain. Email. Phone. Your health and wellbeing is important.

  1. As healing as talk therapy can be, it is mostly a temporal fix. I struggle with anxiety and insomnia, but there are meds that I can take that work. I can not begin to even imagine how you can live with physical pain that is constant. I hope that you find the right combination of ingredients to alleviate your pain. Thanks for sharing. 🙏
