It's never a good time, but I suppose this is as good a time as any being winter. This episode began in July with another flare up in AZ over Thanksgiving. Coming back the episode subsided and I even went pill free entirely. And then another flare up on 12/23. Left work, made it to the doctor, medrol, anti immflammatories. Made it through xmas eve. Xmas night licked me though, getting into car killed me and I went down at my parents unable to get up. Oxycodone could not get me up. He'll if I was going to miss Christmas dinner so I had my dad bring me a plate to the floor and I shoveled it down.
