Quilting makes life fun

Thanks

Thanksgiving is passed and I managed not to offend my mom by not going to her house for dinner.  The though of having to drive for 45 minutes made my head ache.  Had a quiet day at home with Chicken Pot pies for dinner.  My pain is finally decreasing and I took a short walk last night at sunset.  I only have moderate pain this am so maybe the end is in sight.  My family is coming up today to take me out to lunch for my BD.  Could not convience them that I REALLY did not want to celebrate.  Birthdays have always been overrated, in my opinion, and the older I get the less I want to celebrate.  Ah well my mom does want to celebrate the birth of her wonderful daughter, her words not mine, so who could say no to that.  I am going to gift myself a new bed.  One of the wonderful ones that raises at the head and feet and has a zero gravity setting so I can maybe actually get comfortable.  Canceled bridge for next week, again, but I dearly hope to finally get some sewing time in.  All of you have a great week.

Thoughts

My friend Kris's blog have a title, "So much to do, So little Time".  I have always loved this.  However mine is now called So much to do but to much pain.  I suffer from CRPS, a truly horrible thing.  I have had it now for 15 years, most of the time my pain is on a level of 1-3, bearable.  Periodically I have flareups, and I am in one now.  I have been laying on my couch for the past week.  I have had to cancel all my activities because when you can't walk its hard to do things.  Having had this for so long I can usually deal with the pain it's the not being able to do anything that is the mind bender.  I would love to be working on MQ7, I would love to be at my longarm but no I am immobile on the couch having a major pity party.   Then this morning my thoughts turned to the other people out in the QCA world who are also suffering and suddenly I did not feel so alone.  So to all of you out there who are suffering - you are not alone.  I hope relief is yours soon.
