Wow, I feel TERRIBLE.
No beach time or family time for me today, as I am stuck in bed with Mr. Marms (who makes things better, but sadly does not cure the pain!).
Two days ago, I tripped over said cat and fell up the stairs, landing hard on both arms, requiring my good ol’ wrist braces. Along with the wrist pain, I’ve had nerve pain shooting up my elbows, as well as through my right hip, down my leg, and around my lower back. There is a nerve pain party happening in my body and almost every part is invited!!! Wooo!! I wish I had the power to kick them all out of my territory!
Yesterday, I struggled through the pain and went out to the campground to visit family. There was a bonfire going, and I woke up this morning with a full-fledged asthma attack after virtually no sleep. Add in the lung-opening puffers, and I’m a shaky, heart-palpitation-filled mess on top of the party of unruly nerves. Go-go painkillers! Please keep me half comfortable for a change!
Either way, I’m a bed-bound disaster thanks to these wonderful illnesses that so many of us know and love (ha. right.).
I feel bad because it is a beautiful day out, and I wanted to take part on the nice days and stay in on the rainy days, but no such luck. I have to realize that I can’t keep up with all the healthier people in my family, and take some time to help myself recover.
Anyone else stuck in their bed today?
