Cortisone Doesn't Fix Everything

Homecoming is coming up. Last year I got the cortisone injection the Monday before the dance. I literally went from being on crutches to dancing for over two hours in a week. Yes, most of my friends dance longer than I did, but I was happy since I did not expect to dance at all.

Now a week from my senior Homecoming dance I know dancing is out of the question, even with a recent cortisone shot. Even though I have felt pretty good this week (I can sit through class without pain!), tonight I found the limit of the cortisone. I attempted to dance at my best friend's little sister's Bat Mitzvah. I was prepared for right hip pain and knee pain galore, but my left hip did not hold up as well as I would have hoped.

Even though I have had chronic pain for years and it has really affected my life for the past three years I don't think I will ever stopped getting upset when it controls my life.
