Sorry that it has taken me so long to post today… it has just been one of those days….
The last few days have been pretty great for the most part. I got to spend them with my honey. We hit a few bumps, but who doesn’t right?
For those who don’t know, I got a Pocket Reader for Christmas. It is/was my pride and joy! I SO badly wanted a digital reader. I spend a lot of time reading when I am stuck in bed or on the couch. There is only so much TV one can watch before insanity kicks in… I try to stay as active as I can, and I have a lot of hobbies, but when I am really sore and can’t do much of anything, I love to read… It distracts me from my pain, and it is something that provides a lot of joy for me.
So when I opened up my Reader on Christmas morning I was SMITTEN!! Until I plugged it in and it wouldn’t sync…. I have spent close to 40 hours trying to get it to work. I have spoken to I don’t know HOW many tech support people…. and NONE have been able to fix it! Yesterday we brought my laptop and my Pocket reader into the Store where it was purchased and one of the sales associates took a look at it…. he spent almost FOUR HOURS trying to figure it out…. and it still doesn’t work! He was very nice and tried his hardest to figure out what the issue was, but to no avail…. Poor guy, he is a commissioned sales person, and spent his whole evening off the sales floor with my laptop. 😦 Looks like I am going to have to return it. So all that work and NO Pocket Reader.
If you have read my last post, you know that I found out today that an “Auto Blog” has stolen every post I have made on Graceful Agony, and they have posted them on their site. They are pathetic scum who steal THOUSANDS of posts from HUNDREDS of victims for their own benefit. I think it is disgustingly sad….. I am kind of at a loss about what else I can say about that….I haven’t yet been able to sort out my feelings yet… but I will.
Tonight pain hit me hard. I was feeling really well the past two days, and I was ALMOST getting comfortable that this nasty flare I have been in was coming to an end. I felt so good yesterday that I almost “forgot” to take my night-time medications… and THAT never happens! 😉 But tonight the pain came hard and fast and took the breath out of my lungs…. It came out of NOWHERE.. One moment I was laughing and playing with my son, and the next I was flat on my back trying to breathe….. I got through it though. I am a survivor. Now I am exhausted physically and emotionally from the day.
So that is why I have been quiet today…. I will have much more time and energy to blog tomorrow 🙂
