My Best, Worst Day
All I can say about today is GLORY TO GOD. I was finally able to add some medication that has taken the edge off my nerve pain. I’m still living with a level 5 out of 10 pain at all times, but it’s way better than it was before. It’s amazing how we often have to be taken to the extreme before we can appreciate the normal. For me it’s just been day and after day of relentless, extreme pain. It was literally sucking the life out of me. It was all I could do to sleep soundly or even have the strength to get out of the bed.
Therefore, today is my best, worst day in awhile. While I pray that even my present pain will not be my long term reality, I’m so grateful for some relief. My heart has not raced one time today. I’ve not broken down emotionally even once today. I was actually able to enjoy some quality time with my youngest son who went with me to do some pool therapy. I even got to use my struggles to encourage someone else going through similar struggles.
Today was my first day of taking several new natural supplements that I’m hoping can help my body heal. My body is so exhausted, bruised, and broken from such high levels of never pain over the past 10 days. I’m believing the combo of continued therapy, healthy supplements, quality rest, and steady prayer will lead to brighter days. But, today I’m thankful for the best, worst day I’ve had in some time.
