8. i tried to explain it to my husband. i told him
imagine i only have one leg. it just slows me down, wraps me up in fear, and most of all, makes me ruminate about every problem. whether it is mine, or one of the kids, or even his. it just rolls around in my head until i have to do something. since there is often nothing to do, i end up doing useless things. lather rinse repeat.

hope you find some peace bl. the med go round is hard. i have pain problems as well, and i wouldn't want to recount the number of meds that i have tried. but as long as you are above ground, ya gotta keep trying.
