So, I’m taking another break. Lots of rest periods to try and keep my pain levels where they’re at. If I was staying at home tomorrow doing nothing but resting, I probably would have pushed myself more to get it done faster, but instead, I bought my zero-gravity chair into my room so that I can rest in front of Friends for a bit.
Earlier, I took some Targen to help ease the pain. Once it starts working I’ll open the boxes for the base of the bed 😄
I am feeling good, happy, and proud of myself. I have taken apart my old bed, which involved going to one of my neighbours a few doors down, smoking a cigarette in his driveway. I had never met him before today. My love and ability of being able to talk to absolutely everyone definitely comes in handy on days like today 😌
I have just now heard on Friends Ross singing Hey Hey We’re The Monkees to his unborn baby! That explains why it was stuck in my head for so long that I ended up making a Spotify playlist for it and other songs like it 😁
It’s 4:01 pm and my back hurts like fuck. I know I could sleep on the couch if it isn’t up by the time I am ready to sleep but I know I will be so bummed tomorrow when I get home 😟
I took Boss to the vet to get his bandage changed. I called yesterday as I was told and they told me to go in the morning today. 9:30 am. I was late. When I arrived it was probably around 10 am. There were so many people there. There were dogs inside so I said I would go sit in my car and asked them to call me when it was our turn. We sat in the car for some time and I just kept thinking Boss’s bandage is fine. I have managed to keep it dry this entire time, which I’m also proud of.
Medical professionals are always telling me that I need to be proud of the little things that I achieve instead of just constantly moving the goalpost further ahead. So, I am going to try and be mindful of the little things and allow myself to feel good for doing something small.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t allow themselves to be proud of the little things because they feel like whatever it was they did wasn’t good enough. You are all welcome to comment if you want or need or feel like you need to be heard ♡
