Well, so for the most part the long weekend was pretty good for me, and I hope it was for everyone else too! The fair was in town, so we went to that. I made it through without pain thank god. Some bad spells, here and there, but we did some fireworks and family things, pretty good!
Last night I went to a "work reunion" I guess you would call it. Many of us got a job at this particular McDonalds in town when we were like 15 or 16. It was our first job for many of us and it was a really great one! We have went our separate ways for 15 years or so but we decided to get back together to see what everyone was up to. It was really great. Just like old times! After about two hours, right in the middle of dinner my pain kicked in and within five minutes it was totally out of control.
I had to get up and go ome right in the middle of dinner. I felt so stupid. My wife stayed and said she tried to explain it to everyone. I hoped they understood at least a little. It really hurts me to have my disorder running the show and calling the shots instead of me. I felt pretty powerless.
It is sad to me that the biggest change in my life in fifteen years is my disorder.
