I had plans for a busy day today. I need to go to the Medicaid office, which is always fun. I was going to do some cleaning and maybe a load of laundry. I also need to pick up some things at the grocery store.
But then I woke up. I woke up in a lot of pain. Not just my back, but my elbows and knees hurt. My knees. I have arthritis in both knees but they have not hurt since I lost a bunch of weight several years ago. But they hurt today. Especially the right one.
So I had to rethink my plans. No laundry, for sure. To much lifting and bending involved, even with Isaac to unload the dryer. No cleaning, because I can living with a messy house for one more day. The trip to the Medicaid office and a trip to the store, but a shorter grocery list. Some stuff I can live without for a few more days.
I'm trying not to be frustrated that I can't get done the things I want to get done, the things I feel like I need to get done. I'm trying not to panic about being in pain and alone.
