When I awoke this morning I could barely move. It took me a long time to figure out just how to feed my cats, because I couldn’t bend down. My body just wouldn’t do it. When I came close, it was so painful as to deter any other attempts. I spent the morning feeling sorry for myself. I wanted to be independent, but with my pain, it took a lot of creativity just to put on a pair of shorts. It was on days like these, I wanted someone to rely on, someone who could help me when it became so difficult to do anything. I must have overdone it yesterday on the trails. I had so much fun! It was a shame that so much pain had to come of it.
I spent the day lying in bed reading and napping intermittently. I ate fast food because it hurt too much to do anything like bend down to retrieve food from my refrigerator. I chatted with Frank throughout the day. I was surprised to find that my self-pitying state in the morning didn’t deter him from chatting with him online. I finished one book and started another. Eventually, I resigned myself to it and actually found the forced rest and relaxation quite nice. It had been a long time since I had been able to just spend a day in bed napping and reading and I really ended up enjoying myself. As the end of the day approached, my mobility began to return, but the pain did not subside.
