Yeah, I've basically just lived with it - it's only recently when I've had pain meds because of my foot injury and surgery.humanguy wrote:Oh, over the years I've been given many different pain killers, but only when I'm really, really in bad shape.
Yep!But you know, I'm so used to hurting that I'm just, well, used to it.
I'm glad you lived through that - that can be very damaging.There was a time when I did a lot of "self-medicating" but that's no way to live.
Yes, I'm not writing in agony - I just hurt all over, all the time, in varying degrees.Every day I'm in varying degrees of pain, but it's not debilitating, I'm not in agony. I'm just used to it.
Very true!I don't want to be operated on, and actually I'm convinced the playing the drums has been good for me. I also always remind myself that plenty of people have it far worse than I do.
Oh, interesting! I don't think that I could compose, although I like arranging my own version of pieces that I like. I took up harp about 5 years ago - my mom has been playing for years and I was never interested until I heard some Celtic harp pieces, then I fell in love with it, and finally got my own harp (kind of a mid-size, not the whopping big lever harps) that I love to play with.Oh, and I'm a jazz drummer, but I'm semi-retired. These days I spend all of my time composing, although I do the occasional recording session and the very rare live-performance.
It was mentioned in some lyrics of a song that I like, so I looked it up, and then thought of it when I read you were a drummer!Hah! A rototom! I used to have a couple of those.
