But here is the deal. I can't stop living. I cope with chronic pain every day. I get out of bed with a limp. I hold the spatula with aching hands as I make Dragon's breakfast. Running, I smile even though pain is shooting up my legs. Shin splints maybe?
My point is that every thing I do, every day is painful. My body is falling apart and has been for years. Why should this keep me down? Headaches are a part of life for me. Sometimes a daily part of life. This headache just hurts in a new spot. This one is centered on the spot the dentist injected the novocain. No different than any other pain I deal with just in a spot that is new.
One step at a time. I can do this. Get back into my routine of getting up, cooking, running and working out. Doing school work with the kids, working in my sewing room, playing with the animals and cooking supper. All the things that keep life busy for a stay at home mom.
I feel a little like Bob the Builder.
Can we do it?
Yes we can!
I have had enough of laying around. It is time to get up and put on my big girl panties. I can do it! One task at a time. And it isn't a failure if I have to take extra breaks. Who cares if my run turns into a walk.
