All About Eve

I took this shot of the sky with sun in the trees while walking beside the river last week.  It was a lovely, sunshiny day.
 I didn’t mean to worry my friends yesterday.  I have mentioned previously that I have some health problems that I deal with – mostly of the kind that cause unpleasantness in the digestive system.  Lots of pain, and nausea, and vomiting, and diarrhea.  I don’t like dwelling on these problems – I think it’s boring and disgusting to go on and on about it.  I had a bit of a flare-up yesterday accompanied by some pain and nausea.  I keep demerol on hand for these occasional flare-ups.  Usually I don’t need more than one dose to get things under control.  Yesterday I ended up taking three doses.  This causes me to sleep for about 36 hours.  Thus no post yesterday.  Today I am feeling a lot better, although a bit fragile.  The pain is gone, and I’m just wearing out the demerol now.  I gotta tell you the extra sleep is appreciated.  I feel very rested today, and I’m still dropping off to sleep every little while.
If I just tell you I’m having a bad day and don’t elaborate on that will you understand?  I feel a bit like Mr Hyde moves in to visit me on these days.  You know, a sadistic monster who leaves me feeling like I have been attacked.  Maybe that should be my code for my friends when I am dealing with this:  Mr Hyde has come to visit.  Then you’ll know that it’s just the same old thing and I’ll be fine again in a day or two.
The demerol is a two-edged sword.  I love that it takes the pain away, and I love that I get a feeling of “Who cares?”  At the same time I hate feeling like I’ve left my body and I’m floating away – and then there’s the staggering.  I can’t seem to walk straight when I take it.  Thinking straight is also a problem. lol

  1. I’m relieved to know you’re feeling better. As for details, methinks you need only share what you feel comfortable telling. I’m sure all your blogging buddies will understand. That’s a lovely photo!
    Hugs and blessings,

    I am glad that you are feeling better. Sometimes I wish I could be knocked out for 24 hours or more. I bet the Demerol wouldn’t even do it. For sure, if you tell us you are having a bad day, that is enough. I think that we are all rooting for you and wish you the best of health.

  5. Hi,
    As I see it every day you do one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself.
