I’m not feeling it today. I’ve spent several hours trying to come up with a ‘U’ word to spark my imagination, but it just isn’t happening.
We had a warm, sunny, 78° day yesterday and my pain was tolerable. I knew it was raining today when I awoke because my body was telling me so. The pain is unreal. It’s distracting, and my options are to deal with it the best I can, or swallow opiates that heighten my sense of hearing to a painful level and steal my memory. Most often I choose the deal-with-it method and spend the day trying to be still.
DISH is a deceptive disease — I don’t look ill, but I can’t remember the last time I was pain-free.
So I’m skipping today, and thanking you now for your understanding — we all need to take a day off once in a great while — and today is my day.
