I had to travel last weekend to the spouse's family home for their Christmas. The trip normally takes 5 hours, so we packed the back seat w blankets and pillows so I could ride in style. I started the driving and was only able to drive 45 minutes then the husband took over. As you all know I have Tarlov cysts and it makes sitting on your bum really uncomfortable. to make a long story short our trip took 7 hours. Every one was on the road in Ga, SC, and NC. I do not know how many times the brakes were hit and cause me to. Be slammed forward then back. But with the help of drugs I made it there and faked the "I'm doing good" for the next 2 days. lol Thank goodness the trip home was normal time. The thing that got me through the ride was stubbornness and tears. Not a thing wrong with those tears. The meds helped but I refuse to 'need ' them. So I'm hoping each of you can get as stubborn as I intend to be for the next few weeks. I have another trip to make after Christmas which will be twice as long. Please everyone stay off the major roads to WV. I really don't want to have to crash in a hotel before I get to my Momma's house. LOL But I am very proud of my stubbornness. Happy Holidays!
