Small Delights [Mar. 26th, 2009|10:27 am]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

I'm going to do something irresponsible and wild (for me) today because I'm proud of myself the last 2 days. On short med rations and actually NONE a the end to where I woke up in pain level 9 today at 4:30am, I am thrilled to report I was kind, patient, and limped along pretty well getting to the pharmacy without being at all unsafe or rude to anyone. As a result I'm getting myself a roasted organic veggie wrap for lunch rather than eating the frozen healthy choice dinner I brought because I can spend $6, enjoy a YUMMY veggie wrap and reward myself.

In other small delights, I'm reading The Crown by Deborah Chester (follow up to The Pearls) and really enjoying it! If any of you like fantasy fiction, I recommend her as a clean and enjoyable author for those who like the books with less racy content.

What meds do they have you on? I find myself now needing to explore my options, as the hydrocodone, zanaflex, and lyrica aren't really covering things. Because if level 6's and 7's are the best we can do, I'm gonna CRY! (had to rewrite that sentence a few times until I was happy with my stated course of action...)

I'm a dork! I forgot to say WOOHOO for you! Good choices, good reasons behind them, and, frankly, good for you for even making it TO today, let alone THROUGH today on rationed meds!

Thanks! I'm also on Keppra (max dose of 3000 mg per day) for nerve pain.
