Yes, it is unacceptable to have so much pain. But I try to sit for a while now and then at the computer and surf a bit.
I wont lie and read a book, but I can't now, equally difficult is it to sit and read.
I have a strong medications against this horrible pain, but the pain would not give away. Just for a hour or two. And I can not take the medicines more than every four hours. I then destroys the kidneys and liver, and I of course can't do that.
I'll have to bite the bullet and fight and hope it will be a relief soon. But the weather is lousy, it's raining and blowing. Cold, it is also. It makes the pain gets worse for me.
So it will be when you get old and worn out...
