Day 851

Today I am grateful for painkillers.
Despite my pain yesterday I managed to get a few things done.  Including finalising arrangements with my printer and organising mock-ups of my first print run, and meeting with my new business banker and fixing up the money side of the business.

It was as I was walking out the door from the bank that I crumbled and fell in a screaming heap.

The pain in my head was vomitous.  I literally started to gag...

As I got in the car and realised I still had to drive across town to pick up Husband from his much anticipated but ill-fated Prime Minister's 11 cricket outing (the Australia versus Sri Lanka game was called off due to rain) I burst into tears.  The crying intensified when I realised I had forgotten to do our personal banking while at the bank which meant for a very lean weekend.  I rang Husband and bawled out my frustrations. He soothed me and said he would do the banking on the way home.  But that I still had to go pick  him up (and one other) coz he'd been drinking.

I summoned up all I could to calm my shaky demenour and concentrated on feeling well. With this power of the mind trick the pain abated slightly and I was able to drive.

By the time I'd collected the Man of the House, and we'd been via the bank, the grocery store and the chemist, I was a total mess.  At the end of it all I crawled into bed with my box of painkillers and that's where I stayed until 7.30 this morning.

Now I am pleased to say I am feeling fine!  Sure, my back, neck and shoulders are still throbbing (the story of my life at the moment) but my head is clear.

Today I am grateful for heavy duty painkillers and a husband who ensured my bedroom remained the fortress of solitude until I recovered.

Now it's time to put teabags on my eyelids, ice packs on my cheeks, and find a make up trick to make me look perky and alive, because I have a client in two hours and I look like I've been dragged by my feet face down through a field of boulders ....

Happy Saturday!
