Dear threeyesofwisdom: Misery loves company and you sure got some here. I get sooooooo frustrated at myself, and at this D--- Disease because, once I've gotten up and dealt with the dogs, cats, Dad who has Alzheimers, washed yesterday's dishes, I'm ready to collapse. I feel awful. I don't know how to make myself feel better. I hurt all over, have a headache trying to grab hold of me, I can't breathe, there's a constant pressure on my chest, it feels like an elephant has stepped on my ribs, my legs ache, my shoullders ache, my knees and my joints in my hands are swollen and ache, my feet ache and my back (Facet Joints) are having a bang-up time. I feel like I went 20 rounds in the ring with Mike Tyson. All I did was shovel snow, on top of three weeks of unrelenting stress including a domestic dispute where the RCMP had to come to settle my Dad down, and I tried to take my stepmom to an appointment, in the city (over 250 miles, round trip). When we got there it was raining, the wind was blowing and I couldn't get her wheelchair together. So we borrowed this pseudo wheelchair (which resembles a grocery cart more than a wheelchair), and as we tried to help her shift her weight from the car to the grocery cart, she had no upper body strength and landed flat on the pavement. I was trying to get her up, with some passersby helping and all she did was scream "you're hurting me". She was totally unable to assist in getting herself up off the ground, whatsoever.
So, I think I'm in a flare. It's odd that it hit two weeks after the drama(s), but now that I look back I also had four days with an absessed tooth, followed by a high risk dental abstraction, close to the sinus, and the tooth came out in slivers. One sliver was left behind and now I'm beginning to get complaints from that area of my mouth. So, more dental work is needed, four weeks before xmas, I'll have to ask Santa to help foot the bill. Can you get gift certificates for Dental procedures? Rant away, that's what we're here for. If you see that old elf badly in need of a shave, tell him I need a gift card to get my teeth fixed. lol.
