At the moment, I'm waiting for the latest batch of pills to kick in, which will probably take at least 45 minutes or so. Till then, I suffer sporadic stabbing pains to punctuate the more general pain issues. There's never any to judge when a particular stab is going to occur and it's definitely not due to any movement or whatever on my part. It's just that at random moments, it feels like someone just stabbed you with a needle or small knife. Flinching away and yelping dosen't seem to make things any better. Neither does excessive swearing I've noticed.
Oh well. What cannot be fixed, must be borne. Things will get better once the pills dissolve and start rushing through the blood stream. Till then, I think I'll give swearing another try. Who knows, maybe it'll work this time.
