Dipped strawberries

Lucky me, my son and his wonder wife, Ashley, came for dinner Ashley made a great meal while I watched my 18 month old grandson play…it’s amazing how you laugh at all the things grandchildren do. Ashley fished the night making my chocolate covered strawberries that I just couldn’t get to. We were all sitting in the living room when we heard Brody (grandson) giggling, he managed to climb up on to the kitchen table and he was poking fingers into the brownies and tasting them…ohhh he is too funny!!!
I woke several times during the night, the pain is crazy. I often think I’m use to the everyday pain and then WHAM! A major flair up happens to remind me my everyday pain is about a 5 and a 9-10 is lurking. I turned the heating pad on held it against my feet, took a Tylenol PM finally fell back to sleep.
Headed to the rhuemmy today, my doctors do not prescribe pain meds in any form. Tylenol is it. I kinda understand, they want to get the flair up under control, not mask the symptoms. However I do need to go to work, some days Tylenol just doesn’t cut it! I am a casino dealer so using hands and standing on my feet are necessary, ant suggestions?

I use to alternate NSAID with Tylenol. I would take 2 Aleve (generic is naproxene) morning and night and 1000 mg of Tylenol every 4 hours. My doctor gives me Vicodin now but I have never had a problem with addiction and have had the disease for 30+ years. I have also bought 2/20s over the counter in Canada. Hope this helps. Sending hugs and prayers your way. <3, <3, <3.

What are 2/20?

It is Tylenol and codeine sold over the counter in Canada. It only has 8 mg of codeine in it but does not require a prescription.
