Become one with the couch

Ok, so I'm off physical therapy for a week because
of some problems. I'm on megadoses of NSAIDS and pain
meds. I've curled up in my old recliner with pillows
all around me and a heating pad on my back.

Will I let this stop me from going to Huntsville and
partying my ass off? Absolutely not. :) Do I ever let
it stop me from doing what I want? Nope.

I just got off the phone with Tina, my best friend
from home. We were setting up our plans for this
weekend. It's amazing how our relationship has changed
since I let go. We were inseperable well into the
first year of college, when we roomed together. I was
sometimes miserable because she did things without
thinking of how they would hurt me. Things like making
plans to come stay with me, telling me how much she
misses me, and then I find out it was an excuse to
spend time with a guy. I would never see her for the
rest of the weekend. She meant the world to me, so I
would put up with it. At one point, I guess, I grew
up. I realized that a relationship where you feel
miserable wasn't much of a relationship. I loved
Tina, but I let her go. We spent several years apart.
The next time we got together, I think we had both
grown up. Now, when we talk on the phone, you can
still feel the bond. When we are together, we are
the closest. I guess that if you really are best
friends, even though there might be hardships, the
love for one another remains. :)

Ok - ENOUGH SAP :) Back to my riveting evening of
bedrest.

The wonderful world of arthritis. In my lumbosacral
region, I have arthritis in my facet joints. It is
usually managed by injections of corticosteroids
into the joints, but they didn't work this last time.
It sucks to have a disease that mostly affects
people over the age of 55, but I'm constantly amazed
how many younger people actually have it.

We just aren't 'allowed' to give in to it :)
