It is helpful enough that I'm feeling a lot of hope and cheer. More like this please! More actually helpful stuff that doesn't dope me up. I cried at how much less it was because i realized how desperate I am to stop feeling the rest of the pain. I dread doing anything or going anywhere because that makes it so much worse.
But, anyway, it is better to have some life going on and not be in bed all the time. Tomorrow I'll go on 2 buses and a train and then a long way over bumpy pavement and then sit up for hours and do it in reverse to go to maker faire. I will be at the noisebr1dge booth most of the day with zond7! I plan on lying down behind the table if we have a nice big space behind there like we did last year. It is amazing how a lie down on the floor can perk me right up as it takes the pressure off my low back. Moomin will be around in the afternoon so at around 3, so we'll run around looking at everything! My sister will be there too helping to run bazaar b1zarre. By the middle of the day I might be kind of out of it and need to take painkiller. The end of the day I will be slogging through in the mode that I think of as being like some plane crash survivor hiking grimly out of the mountains maybe after having to chop her own leg off after it was crushed by a piece of the fuselage. One... more.... step..... That is the state where I snap at children who make any kind of fidgeting or jostling anywhere near my right side.... BEWARE. Beware and get away.
Today I did low key housecleaning in between lying in bed or sitting on the porch playing games nad reading. I had coffee on the front porch in the morning and laid out in the sun in the back yard in the afternoon while zond7 works on an article on various international internet things. I cooked some fish with potatoes with sesame seeds. I fiddled with my houseplants and potted the extra marigolds left over from the Cortlandia community garden. There was also a lot of important cat petting to do.
As convalescing goes this has been amazingly cosy and pleasant... this house is awesome for it.
Amazing compounded pain drug cream.... I want all the varieties! I want the kind with horse anesthesia in it! Bring it on! please! Why has no one given me something like this before? Instead I had to order my own Voltaren gel off the net from some sketchy pharmacy in Vanuatu. WTF.
