My life has become full of pills, & not just for pain. Vitamins, bone loss, arthritis/inflammation, etc. On days like today when the pain won't go away & ice has been on for hours, a steam roller & a handful of pills doesn't seem like enough.
My parents celebrated 48 years of marriage yesterday. 48 years...myself having turned 40 this year I'm amazed to think of such a commitment & faithfulness that is rarely really seen anymore. They will go out & eat at their favorite little seafood place on the pier, a humble little cheap, fantastic representation of genuine good food over the Gulf of Mexico. It's a perfect place to represent them-honest, loyal, quirky, gorgeous, & fantastic. Taking the best of 2 different worlds & combining them into something that takes work, gets blown down by hurricanes, yet stands up & rebuilds as needed. Happy anniversary mom & dad! I love you both so much.
After joining Flickr, I learned about bokeh-the cool little blurs that can happen accidentally or on purpose. Only having a cell camera I have to use apps & an orange aspirin to make my own-& my tongue ;)
I'm very clumsy-many people with fibromyalgia tend to have sketchy balance, run into things like door frames even though it looks like they are centered correctly, & fall pretty often. In 5 days I've fallen 3 times. The 1st 2 were pretty standard, but this morning I fell & it was as if my body was paralyzed. Normally your arms/hands reach out, as reflexes should, to instinctively protect yourself, but I fell as if I was planking. I landed like a cartoon character directly on my face, right in Chai bunny's food pellets. She bolted over, started licking me & gently tugging on my shirt & slippers to try & get me up. She's used to me falling, but I think even she sensed it was different. My right shoulder somehow landed next, on a heavy glass mug I use to dip out her food, followed by my knee & foot. My neck & arm are so sore, & I even have hip/bum bruises to show & tell! My neurology appointment is Monday, & I'll be having another brain & back MRI to check again for MS, etc. Cannot type anymore, so here are the pics.
The imprint of my face
Landing strip mug ;)
Chai bunny had her bunny Poppy (later on) on top of her fav magazine to eat, with a pair of my panties she dragged off a clean clothes pile & the t-shirt I was wearing that was covered in her food pellets. She is divinely sweet!
