it is my birthday today and decided that it would be the best day of the year for me to be in the most pain I have in a long time!
I have done my best to put a smile on my face and pretend I am fine. The level of pain got so ridiculous my strongest painkiller didn't work and I had to take a second. That helped but the downside of easing the pain is the wonderful side effects we get to suffer through. I was drowsy and wanted to sleep, not great when you have family in and out all day to visit.
I ended up leaving my visitors sat in my garden in the sunshine while I went to bed and cried. I hate giving in to the pain and feeling so defeated. When the pain hits these levels though there isn't a lot I can do but suffer through it and hope that it doesn't last too long. I am feeling a lot better this evening than I was earlier today. Although I am drained and will be heading straight to bed as soon as I have hit publish and shut this computer down.
