07:01 am: A Very Late Post

I'm having a lot of pain -- enough that I've been outside four hours since the 12th. I keep planning to get things done and instead take narcotics and go to sleep. I'm nowhere near the end of the book for tomorrow, and I don't know if I can go to bookgroup anyway. Don't worry, it's not enough to see the doctor, just email every few days. She thinks I should wait until it's worse to get worried.

I am sorry to hear that. I don't understand why the doctor thinks that pain sufficient to keep you from doing your regular things for more than a week is not sufficient to be addressed, though.

Hope you feel better.

Yes, this. It's interfering with your life, that should be a reason in itself!

I only get out about 10 hours a week, so I'm not that far behind. I did just buy a rice cooker that I'd like to get cleaned and set up so I can have oatmeal when I get up.

She thinks I have a lot of pain all the time, so this is just some more. I did get out today to get the trash & recycling in the bins and cardboard at the transfer station, plus dropped off some donations at the charity thrift shop. But when I got home, I started working off the movies I have on the DVR. There's an amazingly awful "SyFy Original" called Stonehenge Apocalypse that is so bad it's funny.

Please don't leave it too much longer if it doesn't improve.

I'm giving myself until Monday. I don't have anything other than my regular stuff next week, and those just get pushed to the end of the week in times like this.

I'm sorry, Marilee. I had my back go out a couple of weeks ago, and that kept me from doing much for a while. I'll bet it was less pain than you have. Please take care!

The really annoying part is that different parts will take over as the alpha pain joint. I get ready to using particular fingers in my hand, and then it will move to one of those and the one that was bad before may or may not still be bad.

I'm being careful, and Junie is spending a lot of time in my lap.

Urgh, I hate that! You get all sorted out to deal with the problem parts... and they start cooperating! It's like there's a bunch of evil gnomes dashing around inside causing problems, and cackling "You'll never catch me!!!".

That doesn't sound good, Marilee,
Please, don't wait too long to see your doctor. Really!
Take good care of yourself,
Doris

I'm still sleeping too long, but not as much pain. I had lunch before I got groceries yesterday and I had to ask for some help to get up because I kept hurting too much and sitting back down.
