  1. I am normally happy go lucky but when I am miserable normal I am in a ton of pain like I am at the moment and everyone feels the brunt, cats, dogs, birds and the whatnot, the amount of time I have stumbled into that fecking stupid hall stand. My wife calls this time Petes Periods because and grumpy and in pain. But really I have reason to be miserable, it starts a few days earlier with severe headaches which the dosage of dihydrocodine is doubled, then the spasms in my spine along with inability to stand without support, the patches I wear constantly for pain contains fentanyl (sp) which is 100 times more potent then morphine has no affect as I tend to live in a world of sleep and drowsiness, the inability to control my bladder has now increased from will I get there in time to no point moving, inability to move my bowels as the near that helps me bear down is damaged so a mixture of high fibre diet and powdered laxatives, once a week I have the luxury of sitting on my throne and hope for the best. You think talking about is embarrassing, I shout on my wife as I cannot wipe, if she is at work well…………
    These ‘episodes’ can last from 5 days to many months depending on each day depends on my body. Latest results from neurologist is that I have blockage in my brain and spinal cord which stop nerve signals along with nerve damage in many of the major nerves.
    I am in constant pain every minute of every day, everywhere, so I do have a excuse to be miserable, but majority of the time I am me which you will find a smile on my face – If you wish to be miserable every day just because you cannot be bothered to smile then its your God given right, but pray to God you don’t experience a day in my life. So smile you miserable bastard 🙂
