Today is Saturday. It's been a VERY busy week...but a lot of it was social and fun. With a few MD appointments in the fray. I seem to have gone up several levels in the battle against pain. Pain has escalated and is beating the snot out me every morning now. It's always been worse in the AM but seriously...there should be some kind of nomenclature to distinguish pain from PAIN!!!!
It's all I can do not to cry in the morning now. I move every joint...slowly. carefully...and every single one hurts indescribably. It's just not fair. It just really sucks.
But that's the way it's been for the past three mornings. When it finally ramps down a bit my neck, hands and SI joints and my shoulders remain as uber painful. I guess I'm paying for this past week. I think I will stay in bed today as next week looks fairly busy also. I have my Dragon here I really need to use it whether my husband likes the noise 0r not. My arm hurts too much to type anymore.
on Monday I'm having an MRI done on my neck. I know what they will find will be bad. My last MRI on back in 2006 shocked all my doctors about how bad the damage was and it's gotten a lot worse, believe me. it's not that they can operate or anything...maybe they can see how they can best approach it with the needle to give it an injection. The next Friday I have the ophthalmologist. It should be another interesting appointment.my vision has changed radically. I'm afraid that one of these diseases has caught up with them (my eyes).
I really feel a need to rest today. Although this last week has been fun at some times it exhausted me too. So if I'm going to make it to sermon tomorrow,I'm going to have to rest today it will be hard because my family's home and will need me for making lunch and dinner and to do the dishes. Now that may not sound like a lot for you but it really is more than I can handle. I'm going to have to put my foot down. I will ask them to do what they can for themselves. it won't work but that's won't stop me from trying.
Wish you all a wonderful weekend and make it the start of a wonderful week.
