Pain Free!

There is something marvelous about no pain.
My back/shoulder/elbow have been without pain for three weeks.
Granted I am feeling a twinge in my elbow but I know what the cause of it is and how to deal with it.
Yesterday as I was speeding around work I realized just how great I felt.
NO pain.
WICKED good mood.
LAUGHTER resounding.
SMILES on everyone’s face.
My mask yesterday was my blue one with the tongue sticking out.
It is identical to my pink just the color is different.
And as usual I was told to put my tongue back in several times.
And as usual everyone who looked at or talked to me smiled.
Save for a few but they are heartless drones who do not know how to have fun.
Gotta feel sorry for those people.
Yesterday hot flashes returned with a vengeance.
Although in part that may have been the fluffy socks that I had mistakenly worn to work.
Thought it was chillier than it was.
Dumb Jay.
Hot feet mean hotter hotness.
A couple of times I was wiping sweat from my brow.
I have gotten so good at spotting that tell tale rush of initial heat so I can get my sweater off.
When I haven’t people know.
I become increasingly redder and redder.
Then like in those old commercials where you would see temp rising higher and higher well when the red subsides I get whiter and whiter.
Bet you never thought that that was possible.
I mean how does a white girl get whiter?
How is that possible?
This is something that I have spent a long time trying to figure out.
From Spring til Fall I am in the sun and get increasingly darker and darker.
More so than anyone else in our family.
Yet while everyone remains human during the winter months I convert to an albino vampire.
I am not intending to offend either the albino or vampire communities but lordy I am worse than death warmed over.
Snow banks have more color than I do.
Wear white?
Only if I want to look like a ghost.
Pain free.
Not going to be doing any cartwheels because falling on my face would probably cause myself some hurt.
Makes a girl giddy with excitement to realize that once more there is full mobility and no pain.
No pain.
NO PAIN!
It is Thursday everyone.
Nigh on the weekend soon.
Have a terrific day all!

      1. That’s a bugger…..summer dress time or find an excuse to work in the walk-in freezer at work🤔. Until I had started reading your blog I had always presumed folk were saying “hot flush”. Certainly a lot milder here now. I hope they start to decline for you soon.

      2. Well pain has returned but I am aware of cause. I ran out of cookies which I was eating half of one a day and three weeks since I have had a massage. And this week a lot of cashiering. In a large till which was stupid of me. I got cocky thinking that I was pain free totally. Ach not as young as I use to be. LMAO

  1. So happy to hear! I’m have a fairly pain free day myself for once, and looking forward to a barbotage procedure next week to see if that helps my shoulder–I hope it works!
