The last year has been a nightmare for me as it has for so many of you,
I had gotten to the point meds were not working and when a PC cut
them in half with no changes to what was causing the pain I started on
a journey where pain sucked it all away. No more dinners, fishing, sleeping,
shopping, traveling on and on it was just a battle from one day to the next.
The biggest thing was the effect on my family not me. The worst was
the effect it has had on my Grandchild who I am very close to. No more
going to his activities, sleep overs, picking him up from school.
My GP upped my meds last Fri. not much but enough that I am able to
breath, sit on a tolet without tears, sleep 4 hrs. straight and more.
But the most exciting thing is yesterday (I took no meds before) I picked
my Grandson up from school. I will never as long as I live forget that look on
his face. A smile from ear to ear and that beautiful little face. He jumped in
the car and said "Grandma your here are you alright". Then we got to his
house and it was show and tell time.
Believe me the pain was there I was sweating, face bright red and shaking but
would I and will I do that again you better believe it. That is the biggest
motivator I could ever hope for to continue down this road I am of doing whatever
I can to continue to be part of his life.
Sorry I just had to share that for me it was huge.
Hope you all are or will find and are able to enjoy those kind of moments in your life.
