I love it when I can feel like I don't have this disorder at all. I felt that way for most of the weekend.
It all started with me going bowling with my good friend Kristen. I had so much fun and laughed soooo hard. I didn't bowl very well but I had an incredible time. I had two goals for the night:
1. Don't fall down
2. Have fun
I achieved both of them. What an incredible feeling to just be normal even for a night. The only thing I would have changed was the one guy Kevin kept asking me questions about my surgery and recovery. I finally said "Dude, I'm here aren't I". I do have to say that drunk idiots can be quite comical when they start falling for no reason at all. He fell of the couch in slow motion. I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants....
After such a wonderful night of bowling you would think the excitement was over....but no! My wonderful brother and his family came and picked me up and got me out of my house for the weekend. They took me for a drive in the Gorge and we hiked to one of the waterfalls. It wasn't that far but I was sure glad I made it. We stopped by a brewery called Edgefield and listened to live music and drank wine ( a whole bottle). That place was so cool. Then we had smores. What a wonderful weekend.
I was able to just be Kelly. Not Kelly with the brain tumors. I found my smile again and have more energy. I am ready to tackle the world.
Today I need to scrub my kitchen floors and do some laundry. I also need to go pick up the rest of my prescription and call the doctor on the other one. How any company can charge 199.00 for a prescription is beyond me. It's bad enough that my Migraine meds are 30.00 and my other ones are 60.00. I actually need these to stay mostly pain free and they are making it really hard on me to survive when I'm spending 2 to 300 dollars a month on prescriptions.
I'm also going to call the doctor about the pain in my neck and back. This is actually affecting my sleep and my mobility. I thought I needed sleep aid but really all I need is a muscle relaxer to ease the spasms in my neck and back muscles. They cut into my neck muscles and now I have to keep stretching them and rubbing them just to keep them from hurting. I am such an complainer......
Lots to do today...I am going to do what I can to ensure everything gets done....
