Ahh The Weekend!

Many people look forward to the weekend all week long because it is their time to relax and have some fun. Well this week worked the opposite way for me. I got quite a bit done today and I feel real good mentally/emotionally for having done it all. I got laundry done, folded and put away clean clothes, did picking up, emptying trash, balanced checkbook, put groceries away, changed sheets on the bed and more. It is nice to be able to do more around the house and for my family. As soon as my pain hit a 6 I stopped. I was surprised by how much I got done before I hit a 6.

My niece kicked my in the back (one foot hit my spine [lower lumbar] and the other hit the broken SI joint) and caused some major pain! I ended up in bed with an ice pack for a while. The ice pack and my meds helped lower the pain again, though I am now hovering around a 7. She doesn't know what she was doing so I couldn't be real angry with her, but it did take me a few seconds to recognize that fact.

Well that's all I can think of right now, so I'm off to bed early tonight!

Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
