They lied - the medical people - they lied - honest true they did !!
They told me that the muscle relaxants and pain pills that I am taking for the pinched nerve in my neck, wouldn't affect my daily life..............that I could still do everything - including driving a car.
They lied !
The combination of these pills is giving me flash backs to the good old days of smoking pot........... back in the hippie days of the 60's. Pretty colours, paranoia, mood swings all the good stuff - gahhhhhhhhhhhhh Not so good now that I remember
I am taking it easy - at least trying to. Yesterday I went out to the local kid's park to complete an assignment for my photography class. Remember I said I wasn't sure if this "creative" photography class is for me - with all the spiraling colours and out of focus pics??? Well sh*t - if I stay on these pills - I will be turning in all sorts of out of focus - spiraling coloured pics. (le sigh)
At most I spent 45 minutes at the park and barely made it home!! My whole world was spinning out of control - and when the world spins my stomach turns. Ain't life grand??!!
Anyway - all that to say - I am trying to create and make Christmas cards. Using the embossing tool was hard to do before the pills - it hurt to draw with it and I didn't have as much strength as I should to press down hard enough. Now I am on the pills I probably could press down hard enough - only problem is the damn pattern I am trying to work on keeps slipping and siding and rotating all on it's own - which makes me more dizzy than I normally am (on a good day!!)
(and I am noticing as I proof read - that I can't write worth a darn either - leaving out words and mixing my metaphors - le GRAND sigh - time to call it a day me thinks....)
Oh except... one last thing - last night I "threw" the Chinese fortune sticks to see what is in store for me (something I haven't done since I got here ) and they told me that the "illness" I am suffering through won't be serious and will be gone soon - and my financial fortunes will stay the same goodie - maybe there is a bright spot ............. the neck will improve and I'll still be broke (cheeky grin)
