Not A Good Night
Last night I took plenty of meds to help me sleep. Well, they definitely helped me fall asleep. But, my body woke me up in the middle of the night. It was as if I was a large wind chime. The colder air just blows clean through my nerves. Even with a steady temperature inside my body can feel the change in temperature outside.
Daily, I deal with this piercing feeling that only my stimulator and medication can try to keep in check. Once it gets worked up it just doesn’t quit. Keeping a heating pad directly on my lower back does usually calm the madness. There’s no denying that any change in temperature drastically affects me for good or bad. Actually, any cold breeze, loud sound, sudden movement or anxiety can kickstart my nerve pain into high gear.
I really need another pain shot, but my insurance won’t approve it right now. I’ve got to complete at least six physical therapy sessions before they even consider it. Life is full of seasons that bring ups and downs. For me the colder seasons are definitely harder for many reasons. Yet, God continues to give me the resolve to keep pressing towards my goals. Heading out to walk with a friend now.
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” (Philippians 3:12)
