Fibro's Revenge

Dear John,
 
The good news is that I've been released by Occupational Health. I had another elbow x-ray this morning which showed that the fracture has healed. So they released me with no restrictions. And it's just in the nick of time - if I don't mow this weekend, the house will disappear and the dog will get lost in the back yard. Now I can cut the grasses down, clean out the flower beds, and finally dig up the roots of those shrubs in front. I'm eager to get to it.
 
Other than that, I have had a completely horrible day. A front came through, it drizzled all day, and every inch of me hurts. Part of it is my own fault - I've eaten some junk at work the past couple of days and now the fibro is taking its revenge. I feel like I've been run over by a herd of something large and fast-moving. I'm just glad this came on my day off. And I hope I feel better in the morning, especially since tomorrow is Friday.
 
I think I'll take my aching, itching, twitching body off to bed. If I don't sleep, at least I'll be horizontal. There's something to be said for that. You might stick your head in here and rub my back tonight, if you get the chance. You give such good back rubs, and they always put me straight to sleep. You know where the key is - just come on in. I'll leave the night light on.
 
Waiting for you,
Joan.
