I made it through the pain
And a nod to Mr. Barry Manilow.
Last night was one of those bad nights, when my arthritis pain was kicking up something fierce.
It was a combination of the damp weather we are having here, plus I did not exercise enough last week.
And I didn’t consume enough fruits and vegetables, nor did I drink enough water.
Bring on the pain.
I’ve always been the type to reach for a pill to stop the pain, but I’m trying to avoid over-the-counter medication.
I fell asleep easily last night, but woke up about 2:00 a.m. in a lot of pain.
After tossing and turning for awhile, I got up, used some arthritis rub and heat, and moved around.
Then I pulled out my laptop and read some blogs.
And read my book for a bit.
Finally, about 5 this morning, I fell asleep.
And miraculously woke up at 8:0 a.m. free of pain.
I’ve been busy all morning, cleaning and finishing my laundry.
And I made a delish fresh fruit salad for breakfast.
This afternoon, I’m going to take a little walk around the neighborhood.
But right now, I’m celebrating making it through the pain.
And I’ve got an idea for some blog posts I’m hoping to start soon, about my years working in restaurants and retail stores.
I’m going to change things around a bit, so I don’t get sued, but I have some hilarious stories to pass on about working in small, independently owned businesses.
Stay tuned, and have a great day.
