This will be a short post but I wanted to let y’all know that I’m not ignoring my online family. For those who are unaware, I’m a chronic pain patient. While I refuse to allow my medical problems to rule my life there are times when I have no choice but to take a break. When the pain in my back and legs gets to be too much I have to resort to taking the narcotic pain killers my doctor has prescribed.
Recently I’ve pushed my beat up old body farther than I should have and I’m now paying for what my dad used to call being bull headed. In fact, I’ve pushed myself to the point that the narcotics just haven’t done the job. I saw my doctor Tuesday and he has increased the dosage on my pain killers. He warned that it would take a few days for my body to adjust and he wasn’t exaggerating!
While the increased dosage is doing the job, it’s also left me feeling like a zombie. Because of this I haven’t been online much or had my camera out of the bag lately. In fact, I’ve been writing this post for 3 days.
I promise I’ll catch up once I’m back to what passes for normal in my world. In the meantime I’ll be busy catching up on my sleep deficit.
