Was going to go out with my friend, but of course i have gone into a flare. Woke up yesterday with entire body in pain. Took two 8-hour extra strength tylenol, which did nothing, spent the day on the couch. Same today. Took two Aleve at 10, when I got up, and had oatmeal to keep the Aleve from eating holes in y stomach. Fun start to the day. So seriously doubting I am going to be functional enough to do anything, but that’s life with chronic, debilitating, really, really sucky illnesses.

On the bright side, not only is it a beautiful windy cold sunny day, but I am 78 years old today. How cool is that? I mean, look how long I have survived all this crap. Also, I am already seeing some leaves popping out on one of the trees across the street. But blooms are still going strong, too. So pretty to wake up to every morning, even on the gray days.

    • Thank you. It did turn out to be a good day. Daughter 1 called, good chat, then later my friend called and when I said I could not go out, she said she’d just come over, which she did, and brought a small cheesecake which we had some of and chatted and played a computer game we haven’t played for years, and then tonight daughter 2 called and we had a long and interesting and fun chat. Fun day over all, and playing computer games doesn’t hurt. 🙂 I am lucky to have good friends and great kids.
