I suffer from an autonomic nervous system problem which causes agonising kidney pain, being unable to urinate as my bladder no longer  works so I need to self catheterise 6 times a day and I also have no warnings before I blackout. These cause me so many injuries. I take a ridiculous amount of medication and 3 types of opioids to try and manage the pain.

Welcome to my life lol if I don't laugh I would just cry
