Yesterday I decided I needed a change of scenery. There’s a big liquidation store close by so I asked hubby to take me. On these meds I dare not drive alone as they make me a little light-headed.
A half hour into the store my lower back started to signal “that’s enough!”. I ignored that signal and continued on, determined to get through to the end of the store.
Bad, bad, bad decision!
By the time I was done I could barely register what I was seeing. The pain was shooting down to my feet. I could hardly wait to get my ass onto the heated seat in our vehicle! Hot day or not, that heater button was ON
Got home, belted a heating bag to my lower back, another for my neck, took another pill and crashed on the couch for 2 hours.
Good grief! No wonder I don’t want to leave the house🙄
What really concerns me is the thought I may someday have to live alone, on my own, to fend for myself. It makes me wonder how would I ever cope, getting food, seeing doctors, and so on. I’d be poor, no car, dependant on strangers pretty much, to see to my basic needs.
I am overwhelmed with the scary scenarios that come to mind. Geez, I’d have to live in a city!
