The Pain is Back

 OMG a Spoon!

The last few weeks I was beginning to feel better.  I was finishing my day with extra spoons!  I thought this was a turning point for me.  I was excited but I didn't want to get my hopes up.

Then I started a new job and the pain came back with a vengeance.  I now end each day with negative spoons and need to spend the whole evening and weekend resting.  I knew my decrease in pain was too good to be true.  Friday night after my first week of work I lay awake all night in agony, until I took a pain killer and a tylenol pm at 5 am and dozed off around 6 am only to wake up again a 9 am in pain.

Every morning I wake up excited about my new job but dreading taking my first painful step out of bed.  Ugh!  I find myself needing more pain medicine just to function.  I don't like taking pain medicine and try to avoid taking any medicine as much as possible, but I also want to be able to make it to work and do a good job.  I see my pain management doctor again soon and I will discuss this with him.

I am also going to get a power scooter so I can take my dog out for walks.  It is not fair to Penny that I can't take her for walks. 

If I get a scooter I will also be able to shop, shop, shop til I drop with the money I make at my new job.  There are a few fun things I want to buy.  Right now, without a scooter, shopping 'til I'm dropping means about 20 minutes.  That's not even enough time to buy anything.  I hope I can spend three or more hours shopping with my very own power scooter.  And if I have my own scooter, that I paid for, and belongs to me, then the store employees can't give me dirty looks, ask me if I really need that scooter, and try to kick me off of it.  Take that mean employees!

Lots of Love from your scooter happy Angie


  1. Scooters are awesome! I'm sorry you are in more pain :( Hopefully your doctor can help you with that and you get some of your spoons back. You should add a horn or a bell to your scooter ;)
