So yes, after the walk and the next day shopping, by Friday I was in so much pain. My friends came and we got a lot done, but they did the work and I mostly just tried to hobble around where needed. I have been in major pain ever since, just slightly getting better now. Slightly. Mind you, this has been a month. Had to cancel my PT appointments, because even getting dressed and combing my hair was more than I could manage most days. Not fun. I don’t understand how they say exercise helps fibro, because whenever I’ve done anything, the pain just gets worse.
On the other hand, the place is in much better shape now. Got rid of a lot of things I don’t need or use anymore. My friends replaced the oh-so-wornout couch cushions, put shelves in hall closet and a new hanger bar in the big closet. Those plastic-covered metal shelf-bar things are horrid. So hard to hang clothes, because there is so little room between the bar and the shelf. This is not my closet, btw.
I want to do some rearranging, as my friend John took my table and fixed it. It was literally falling apart, and so very wobbly. It’s old and decrepit, but I fell in love with it in the junk shop and brought it home tied to the top of my car. Many years ago. I think what I really love are the chairs.
I’d like to move it from in front of the windows, but then I have to move the desk and some other things, and I just cannot do this by myself. So waiting for them to come back and help. I have good friends. I am very fortunate.
Need to go eat something, so I can take a fistful of pain meds in hopes that I will be semi-functional later on today. Not holding my breath, however. Feeling very down and seem to be very whiny lately, but constant debilitating pain will do that, it seems. I hate when I’m whiny, but sometimes it just happens.
My friend Tess is going to take ukulele lessons. She already plays piano. There’s a Tiny Tim joke in there, but she wasn’t over pleased with it. LOL Wish I could play an instrument. Making your own music. How cool is that? Done for now. Hope you all are having a great start to the new year, and did NOT make resolutions. Resolutions are a deliberate choice to set yourself up for failure, is my view of them. So I don’t.
