This weekend I have really had issues with my joints, especially in my hands. I have had issues opening jars or taking the tops off of sippy cups (not fun when you have a toddler).
So yesterday afternoon – two hours before our scheduled family pictures – I went to let out the dogs in the backyard. Well, my hands would not cooperate and I could not get the door open. Finally I got frustrated and yanked really hard. The door opened. And smacked me right between the eyes. My nose was throbbing and my eyes immediately watered. I hollered. The dogs got loose. It was fabulous.
It was then that we noticed that it had started raining so our pictures had to be rescheduled which made me happy considering I already had a knot coming up on my nose and was wondering if a black eye would follow.
Today thankfully its not THAT bad and there is no black eye. Just a really sore spot on my nose and a small bruise. One thing I never expected was to have my chronic illness turn me into Marsha.
