I’ve been at Flinder’s Medical Centre Emergency since about 6am this morning. Mother had intense back spasms that prevented her from walking, or basically any movement at all, including talking. I had to called 000 and get an ambulance because there was no way I could carry her to the car and drive. We’re home now, and she’s on severely strong pain killers.
Today, I cried a new set of tears - tears of helplessness. I felt fucking horrible watching my mother scream out in pain because it hurt so much, knowing there was nothing anyone could do. She just had to take it.
