Today is a good day to die!

Aug 07, 2014 5:19 PM

Today is a good day to die and I mean this literally. This has always been my motto for those perfect days. Yesterday I cried all day and when night came and it was time to sleep, my only wish was that my left leg could be amputated at the hip and all the rotten stuff down the left side of my back could be cored out like the rotten part of a potato. This morning after days of pure torture, I feel great. Yes, the underlining aches are still there and I know that I am not healed, but the pain is tolerable. My head is clear and I feel so happy. I don't know why or how, I just know that it is. Why would anyone want their last day to be one of torture? I would want my last day to be one to remember as happy and pain free. So, since this day would be a good day to die, I think I will just enjoy it and pray about what tomorrow will bring. I pray that all of you get a day like this thrown into the mix and I pray that someday we can all enjoy permanent pain free days. Taking it easy with my two year old grand daughter, boy how I missed her. Oh happy day!

I have also had a magical pain free day today! I'm away for a few days, and have managed to walk through the forest, and sit (yes, actually sit!) on an upright chair in a pub garden in the sunshine! Don't know what I've done to deserve this, but have SO enjoyed not being drained by the constant gnawing, stabbing, grating and exhausting level of pain I usually endure 24/7. I know exactly what you meant by your sentiments, but let's just enjoy it while it lasts! Good luck

Woo hoo, I haven't tried sitting upright, especially at the dinner table. So happy for you but don't push it. My grand daughter just left, I actually brushed her curly little head and got in the pool with her. My body is tired in all the familiar places, but still tolerable. If i could have another day like this I would actually be happy with taking it easy and being careful. What a great day!

I have been wracking my brain as to what I did differently yesterday. I ate mustard, (something I usually avoid), but I was having a corn dog so I slathered it in mustard. Look what I found,http://www.thehealthsite.com/diseases-conditions/10-health-benefits-of-mustard/ mustard helps to alleviate inflamation, amongst other benefits. Well I am having another corn dog, slathered in mustard. I know that inflammation has a lot to do with my pain, but I can't use anti inflammatories due to gastric bypass surgery years ago. Which is another reason that I am having so many bone issues, oh well. I know that my bones aren't healed, but if the inflammation could be toned down, I will take it.
