Since pain is like another child in my life, a whining, demanding child, that requires attention 24 hours a day, I’m going to start including a daily pain meter to give you an idea of where I’m at each day. I’ll call it the pain meter, and I’ll use a 1-10 scale because that’s how they do it in the hospital and I haven’t thought yet of a more clever way of expressing my pain. Suggestions welcome. So 1 is no pain and 10 is “take me to the hospital right now” pain. I usually hover between 4 and 8.
