Actually, I can't tell anymore if I'm fragile or if I'm normal. You guys can vote!
Friday I woke about
10am after 12 hrs of sleep. Had breakfast/meds and read in bed till about
1:30. Got up, showered, did some mucking about
w/reading HW, paying bills and such. Can't remember having lunch, I might have had something small. Was feeling fine.
Had a small snack as dinner was to be about
8pm. Left home @ 5 to meet at 5:30 for caravan to "miniature" show. (Something some friends are into that I just wanted to see one show.) The caravan (only 3 of us) driver didn't arrive till about
6. The event was supposed to start at 6:30, we got there about
6:25. We had to wait in a hot, crowded hall as they'd decided, without telling anyone, to move the
opening time to 7pm. Everyone was congregating along one wall, I moved to the other side and sat down (floor) in the
open where it was cooler. People started congregating there, so I moved to another spot and was leaning against the walk. This really large (not tall) woman came up and stood 1/2 in front of me, definitely in *my* space. Her arm was so close that her hand fell naturally in front of me only about
5 inches from my privates. I was speechless, and stood there beaming evil energy at her for a while. She didn't move, so I went and stood with my friends. Was ok until another woman started letting her purse bang against my butt. ARG.
Finally the show
opened and we looked at miniature things for a while. I was ready to go after about
40 minutes; it was a small show and I'd walked around it 3 times by then. One of my friends was still trying to buy something, but was in line behind some crazy woman who kept talking instead of finishing her purchase. It was warm with lots of light in the show room, so I was waiting in the hall outside. It was cold out there, but nice. I found a chair and some sales magazine to flip through.
Finally we left and got to the restaurant about
8:45. Only then did I realize that my back muscles had clenched up from the cold. And when they do that, they go into spasm and it takes a day or two to work out the pain. Sigh. And my eyes were driving me nuts. Light, dryness, looking at tiny things at an age where I can only see between 1.5 & 5 ft away, and only have distance glasses...didn't help that I'd been using reading glasses earlier in the day. And I was too hungry to eat at a Korean Tofu Restaurant -- not my idea of comfort food! Anyway, we ate & by the time I got home I was a tired puppy!
I don't know that any of that was lupus-related, but it was exhausting. Normal or fragile??? I sure don't know!
Have a good day,
