Just another day...

The past few months have been exceptionally bad in terms of pain. I recently got off a medicine that was controlling pain pretty well, but had other unwanted effects. Since doing anything - even sitting in the car to go out - exacerbates the pains, I've been forced to become a bit more of a homebody that I would ideally have liked to be.
This morning, as I was playing Scrabble, hubby walked by chatting with a friend on speaker-phone. She was telling him her plans for the day. She had lunch with a friend, after which she'd drop her dog off at our place so he could have a play date with Lola, sit with us for a bit, then go to a comedy club, followed by a bar/pub/club. The next morning she had to be up early for a Superbowl party at her place. She made it sound so easy. So normal. Then I realized - it is normal. For most people.

I'm waiting for the day when it'll be normal for me too.


  1. You and me both!

    I would love to have a normal day again! I think we would appreciate such a day more than most!

    I hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. I am waiting too, so I know how hard it is do so. Hope you are feeling as well as possible today.
