I've had a lousy last few days - I've developed pain in my ribs, but only when I'm touched - there's no pain if I'm just sitting or stretching, only when I'm touched in that area. No rash or anything unusual, there's no bruises or anything. Even the feel of my shirt hurts. Add that to the new pain I've also developed in my hands and fingers, and worse on the left side than the right. I went to pick something up and almost dropped it, because my fingers hurt so bad when I went to bend them to pick up the dish.
So...I'm in a state of frustration at this point. I'm tired, I'm peeved about pain issues, I'm peeved that it's taking forever just to get an appointment with an Ortho Surgeon, never mind actually seeing him....and of course the more I'm angry or stressed, the more pain I feel, so it's been a struggle to find the balance. Hubby and I were out at a friends house yesterday afternoon, spending time with a group of our friends, celebrating the birthday of our host's 2 year old son, cuddling their newborn daughter, and reading to their oldest girl. I love hanging out with all the friends, but I just felt so lousy yesterday. At one point, I started sweating profusely, but had the chills...I gave the baby to the lady next to me and told Ray I needed to go home now. Our friends are all aware of my health issues, so they were sympathetic and caring, but I don't think they've ever seen me when I've felt like this....maybe they have, I can't remember, but it was a lousy end to my day and I hate it when pain wins.
Anyways, I was happy to be able to pray for Mikel this morning - I hope he does well. I hope all of you here are also doing well, and feeling as good as possible. Take care.
