I had lidocain mixed in saline injected into the two most painful areas of my shoulder by my orthopedist today. I can’t say it’s helped any, but this is something that gets repeated every few days for a while. It hurt, though not as bad as the acupuncture. While he was doing the injections, I started having body memories. This led to tears on my part. Shame? Yeah. I felt really dumb for crying over a not overly painful shot. I got my head together enough to pay (about 9 USD for the visit, PT and injections). But I got out of the building and really started to lose my head. I wasn’t quite sure where I was even though I was about 3 blocks from work. I ducked behind a building and just cried. I’m not sure how long. What was it about those shots that was so triggering? I don’t even know where to start looking.
Sorry for the brevity. Wrist splint + typing = not fun.
