As if there isn't enough with chronic pain in general, now I have a kidney stone on top of it! Geesh!
And of course, glutton for punishment I am, I pressed on with a Mary Kay party I scheduled with a girlfriend from church on Tuesday, only to hear my Mom through the whole thing say "Maybe you should sit honey." And, "Don't you think you have done enough?" MY personal favorite was "You make sure you take a nap when your little friend leaves!"
What am I, a 3-year-old? I just had that appreciate the thought, but old enough to make my own decisions talk less than 2 weeks ago. My poor friend though just smiled and helped me keep her busy during the party. She also told the entire party about how I have this kidney stone, and I have had them before and my last one made me cry and cry, complete with cystoscopy story. So I was embarrassed in 2 ways, not just one.
I feel better after the rant about my mother. I love her, but have to say it that way, like a spoiled child, to someone other than her. It makes talking to her in the tone of the adult I claim to be easier.
As for the kidney stone, does anyone have any suggestions on keeping your sanity with chronic and acute pain?
