Reliance on Pain Meds

So in my last post I talked about how nice it was that my new job was so much better on my joints. I didn't take any medicine before working last night and won't be making that mistake again anytime soon. When I got home, not only did my knees and ankles ache, but my shins did too. It got to the point where I was trying to get comfortable in my dad's recliner and crying alone in the family room. I did go ahead and take medicine but had to bombard my legs with pillows I stole from the family room just to get to sleep.

Could someone please tell my body to calm down?

I think the most frustrating thing about the pain is I wasn't standing a lot. I wasn't doing very much more than any other normal person does everyday. And yet, last night, I wanted to take a chainsaw to my legs because I was already in that amount of pain. Stupid arthritis.
