I don't know whether this is in the right place, if not please feel free to move.

The lady I live with has managed to persuade me this eve to take some painkillers, because it would make her feel better. I said I didn't deserve it or feel like I should as its my own fault, but she said she finds it really hard to see me clearly in pain when I can do something about it and that if to have sh in the first place Im clearly in a difficult place and need to look after myself/let other people look after me (one way being taking painkillers).

I was wondering what other peoples thoughts were on taking painkillers after having sh?  Have you ever taken them? Would you suggest it to anyone else?

I don't feel like I should take them, because, well it just feels wrong. However, I wouldn't want somebody else to be in pain and would offer/encourage my patients to take them if they were in pain whatever the cause (including sh). I think its one of those things where its a case of one rule for me and one rule for everyone else  whistler

Hey.

I see SH as a spur of the moment type of thing. That you want to feel soooo much pain straight away, and afterwards I always feel like a bit of a doughnut because it still hurts and the moment has passed. So I generally take painkillers, because I think, if I feel better mentally, I should allow myself to feel better physically.

Hope this helped.
Look after yourself - if you need painkillers, take them. Even though it's self inflicted, you still deserve pain-relief. Smiley

Hey.


I don't remember ever taking painkillers for SH. I remember, after I'd had a skin graft, my Mum asking me to take some because I was obviously in pain (I was limping), but even then I couldn't bring myself to. Partially because I didn't think I deserved to, but also partly because I found the pain comforting.


I would encourage others to do so though. Like you, ht, I guess it's a "one rule for me, one rule for everyone else" thing. Other people are nice, don't deserve pain etc.


A sensible thing my old CPN did when I was refusing pain meds was to remind me that being in physical pain can have a negative impact on mental health. Being in discomfort can make you feel 100x worse so getting the pain under control may well have a positive effect emotionally. I can now see that that's very sensible, even if I couldn't at the time.


I think you've done a really positive thing by taking pain killers. littlehug2

I tiook painkillers when I had done something major which meant the pain happened over a matter of days. I think it is a good thing to take painkillers when you need them its a way of looking after yourself.
