I will be so glad when DH gets insurance so I can see a doctor instead of the people at the local health department. I mean they are nice and everything, but I think my issues are a little bit bigger than what they can handle.
I have been dealing with severe headaches, phantom needle stick pains, shooting pains throughout my body radiating from the lower back and bouts of numbness in my hands and feet. I don't feel like I am being a good mommy or wife because there is not a time when I am not feeling some sort of pain. I don't use the high dose ibuprofen that I was given unless I feel I have no other option. There are times when I actually hurt so bad that I become nauseated. I would have thought my body would have healed from the epidural caused trauma by now, but evidently it hasn't.
I just wanted to vent and this seemed to be the right place to do it. I want to cry and scream and have someone make it all better, but I know that is not realistic. A part of me wonders if I am the only one who has experienced this or if other mommies have had similar things occur and if so, did things eventually get better????
It has been over three years since I wrote this and while I still have many of the physical pains, it has lessened. I am medicated for high blood pressure and the headaches are gone for the most part. My relationship with DH is so much better because I actually talked to him about all the things I had written and we worked on our relationship. My daughter is my joy and while I am not the greatest mom in the world (I still have my moments), I know that she loves me so much and she knows that I am her biggest fan.
I know this is not the case for some mothers who experienced really bad c/s, but I am doing okay and some days thoughts of my c/s don't even come to my mind. I just wanted to update because things are better.
