How am I supposed to just keep pushing through the pain? It's excruciating, but I have to go to school. I would take a day off, but I'm going to be in pain for at least a week, and I can't take a week off, so I'm saving that day for when I really need it. How am I supposed to just push through? I'm here, but I can't even focus. I feel awful and it's so unfair. Nobody can see how hard I'm trying, they just see me "spaced out" (in so much pain I can't think straight). I'm trying not to think about how it's not fair I have to deal with this, accept that this is just what my life looks like, and keeping going, but it's so hard.

One of the replies suggests that pushing yourself is going to break you and recommends finding something that brings you joy. Another reply mentions that as long as they can get themselves out of bed at a decent time, they're all good. They also mention having a support system for the days off. However, another person shares that when they were last working, they lived off their tramadol and that pushing through it was the only way.
