A year from now, with my memory, I probably won’t remember what’s been going on these past couple of months. I’ve been considering whether or not to share my personal happenings, but as this is also my (some times) journal of what’s going on in my life, and because others may be able to empathize, I’ve decided to make note of it.
I suffer from chronic pain. Insurance being what it is here in The States, I’ve just lived with it. Until a couple of months ago. I went to the doctor and discussed my options, and before surgery, which would be a last resort, I’m now on daily medication. Evidently there are some side effects, to which I am now enduring almost all of…I’m not sure which is worse.
A few of the zingers: fatigue, lethargy, and depression. It also seems to be exacerbating any negative feelings I may have, which thanks to the depression, are many. I’m not writing. I’m not reading. I’m not gaming. I’m barely watching T.V. What am I doing with my time?!
I have another month to allow the medication to get into my system, and I’m really hoping this is all worth it or The Sis will probably do me harm.
As I like to keep this space positive, I’ve remained silent, but I didn’t want you to think I was ignoring you. I wanted to say –
and Happy Holidays! Hopefully in a few more weeks I’ll be feeling more like my old self again, and just in time for tackling a new year!
Wishing you all the best, my friends!
