Happy Solstice! Here, have some pain.


Today is the Summer Solstice and I am sad because instead of going outside and enjoying the beautiful weather and basking in the energy of the longest day of the year, I am stuck inside on pain meds, barely able to make a peanut butter sandwich for myself. I have spent the majority of the day in bed. I had enough energy to make 2 phone calls and then promptly passed out again. 

On a scale of 1 to 10, my pain level was about a 7 before meds. After meds it's about 4.5, but I have very little neergy and I feel swollen all over. That makes typing fun - trying to type with little sausage fingers, yay! So if there are typos, I apologize but it's einvetible between the sausage fingers, meds and fibrofog. I feel; like a bloated fish underwater. .... underwater. Sorry. I just distracted myself with the fantasy of swimming in a large heated pool.... heaven. I love swimming, floating in the water soothes my body so much, not to mention my soul. I'm hoping the rain will hold off on Thursday so I can go to Googie's on his day off and take a dip in the pool. *tries to cross luck crossing fingers as they are fat little sausages that refuse to move* Oh well. I'm crossing them in my head. I'd cross my legs but I think that's for something else, not luck. Hopefully tomoorrow will be better because I have family things to do and I need to be coherent and mobile, none of which I am right now. Bleh.

Fukitol. I'm going back to bed. I hope I dream of butterflies and faeries and shiny pretty things with no pain. See you on the flip side.


  1. On the plus side... mmmm Sausages! Would you notice if you woke up a few fingers down I wonder?

  2. Now I know what happened to those 2 fingers and a thumb. BTW, nice job on the gauze wrapping. I totally didn't wake up through any of it.
