Among the things I can no longer live with, chronic pain is right up there with my mental health issues, dysphoria and personal failures. I’ve had lumbar spinal stenosis since my mid 20’s, but it’s got worse and it’s got to the point where I am constantly in pain. My feet ate so fucked up that if I walk more than 2 miles or so, I end up in excruciating pain. I also experience pain in the upper part of my spine and neck, making it impossible to get comfortable in bed.
There’s no point in trying to get help for any of this. They will probably just recommend physical therapy or tell me to just live with it.
