The Trouble With Pronouncements
So just when I stop droning on about my self-sufficiency - my body decides it is going to stop cooperating. Being abundantly honest - I am in tremendous pain today. Several of the signs that the symptoms of my kidney failure are getting worse are coming home to roost...the day before we are moving to a new home. I am finding some of the medications that helped me get through a renewed burst of activity prior to the holidays are starting to lose steam...meaning bigger doses over shorter periods...and now to add to the indignity, are signs that the toxins that are no longer being filtered out, are painfully depositing in my joints - meaning I am barely able to walk. Of course I managed to pack two boxes before seven am before I came to my senses and retired to the couch. I managed to speak to my lovely family doctor who will check in with the specialist to determine what if anything can be done. It is discouraging as there is so much I wanted to accomplish today and I want to rail at my body for the bad timing. Fortunately I have plenty of helping hands and have to try very hard to allow them to do what needs to be done without jumping up to intervene...one of my lesser skills! So today while again counting my blessings I will let my body be what it is and hope this pain is short-lived.
