Heading out in the morning

Aug 13, 2015 8:31 PM

Well, I spent today feeling so aweful I thought I was going to just die. I had a migraine, Kept crying from pain and anxiety and just am exhausted because I've gotten 2 hours or less of sleep since last Friday. So, the car is all packed (with exception to the cooler for drinks and food). I am feeling anxious still and my best friend is feeling nervous and excited and really is looking forward to seeing this beautiful horse. I'm sure everything will be alright. I set the GPS, my cell phone GPS and I hand wrote the directions. (I am guessing that getting lost is absolutely at a minimum!!) At any rate, I'm trying to calm down and it seems to be happening a bit. I guess because it is now so close that I'm just ready to go and have a good time. I will have the weekend to relax and not have to be anywhere. The weekend here is going to be very hot, humid and stormy.. Uh-oh, pain galore!! Then I go to pain management on Monday which will be no picnic. They will be doing range of motion measurements and that always leaves me hurting more and then it takes a day or two to recover from that. At any rate, I won't be on tomorrow... I'll be on the road for a wonderful adventure with my very best friend to see a gorgeous horse in Lancaster, PA. I hope you all have a restful night's sleep, awake refreshed and have a peaceful and light pain say. Love and hugs to all.💕🙏🏻🌻

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the support. It was a beautiful day, the drive was scenic and the horses were gorgeous!! I'm so happy I went. It turned out to be a 12 hour day!! I did all the driving because my pain level was so bad, I had to drive to maintain some kind of focus. Just took my meds after being without all day. There's nothing going to touch this!! OMG!! Well, I just have to wait until they kick in and hope for something to make it better. I hope you are feeling better, Flappsy. You've been on my mind. I hope you have a peaceful night, a good sleep and a better day tomorrow.
Moparmom, thank you as well. It went great and thanks for not thinking I was crazy!! LOL!! 😳

Alwayz, I was excited to see that despite the pain, you did get some enjoyment of God;s creations. Their is so much beauty to behold. We just have to take the moments to stop and glance and take it in. I hope that despite your stress, you were able to enjoy yourself. I was sad to see that I did not make it back to respond to your post on your anxiety. I wish I could have been there for you. I feel like I let you down. I looked at the time and it looked like it wasn't too long after I made my post. I just wanted to see peoples ideas on how the feel about sharing and hiding pain. I am so sorry. You have been there for me and I wasn't there for you wnen you needed a friend. What good am I? ha Again, I am truly sorry. But it seems like I said. You were strong and you made it. But you must have known that somewhere inside yourself even under the fear. I would have been back on except we were having a yard sale the next day and my wife needed my help. That is a painful task

Profiler, you ARE a friend and you have never let me down. I understand that we all have lives to lead, pain and exhaustion at different times and families to care for. You have always stood by my side since I joined this wonderful family of people. I actually DID enjoy my trip. The anxiety was gone as soon as my friend arrived. She was so excited and it just pumped me up. It turned out to be a 12 hour day (most of it driving, which I did all of). The farms were magnificent and the horse we went to see was stunning. We will be going back to have him vet checked to make sure he has no issues. I drove the whole thing because without meds, I needed to maintain focus and without driving, I would not have been able to block out some of the pain as the day wore on. Actually, it was a 13 hour day, she got here at 5am, we left at 6am and got back in my driveway at 6pm. All in all it was great just to be with my very best friend, going on an adventure and Getting to spend quality time. I hope you are well, Profiler. Have a wonderful Sunday and I send a hug straight from my heart to you. 💕🙏🏻🌻
