You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.~Epicurius
I thought I should update everyone about what’s been going on with me… I don’t want you to think I abandoned my blog!
I got the flu just about three weeks ago. It knocked me out for a few days, but I thought I was better a week ago. But my joints started hurting, and my head was still clogged up.
The joint pain got to be so bad that I could hardly move. Luckily, I have some anti-inflammatory pills left over from my shoulder surgery. They helped some, but the pain was still pretty bad.
I went to the doctors this morning and presented my list of complaints… It’s the flu, with complications. I have a sinus infection and my auto immune system was thrown off track by the flu, which is causing my joint pain.
It’s not just joint pain, but probably reactive arthritis… No wonder it hurts so much!
So I’m home, with antibiotics for the sinus infection and steroids for the joint pain… I’ve been sleeping a lot these past couple weeks and that probably won’t change for a few days. My blog has been on the back burner, but not forgotten.
Once I’m able to stay awake I’ll be back to posting regularly. I’m looking forward to getting back to writing…
I’ve never been so sick in my life. One good thing though… With my crazy hair and unkempt self, my family thinks I’m starting to look a bit like the character Il Duce from the movie The Boondock Saints….
I can think of worse characters to look like. Maybe I’ll cultivate the look…
