    Hey dahlings

    Weather: good. Nice enough to take my dog for a walk.

    Sleep: good but I feel so tired. My dang Lyrica and Tramadol make me so tired and I walk around like a zombie. I HATE living like this. Its either suffer with the pain, or suffer with lower pain and deal with the meds. side effects.

    Mood: not good. Been crying off and on. My VLSC is on friggin fire, so I guess that painful procedure didnt friggin work. That means my Dr. will be doing some kind of Lazer surgery which probably wont work either. I will be stuck with this for the rest of my life. Havent went on vacation for three years, cant go to theaters, cant go to restaurants, cant visit my family, Im just stuck in this house. My poor husband would love to go on vacation but because of me, he is stuck at home too. He wont go any where with out me. I feel so guilty.

    Plans: clean up a bit and then lay in bed and cry all day.

    Love to all. muahs
