How Do You Celebrate Your Birthday When You Feel Awful?
My birthday is tomorrow, and I have been having ripples of pain for weeks. I wanted to be above the pain line for my birthday. I wanted to just have a great day. Go to the museum, a movie, out to dinner. Whatever - but without pain.
Is it possible to have a great birthday when your symptoms tag along with you?
I guess if I stop looking outward at activities and start looking inward at those things that have immeasurable value, regardless of symptoms, I stand a better chance of appreciating the day. And as long as Richard is by my side, I know I am loved.
But damn it! I just plain feel like whining. At least for a little while.
On the other hand, we do have a few more episodes of Breaking Bad to watch. The exhibit at the local museum is about the changing meaning of "pink" in art and fashion. Sounds like a yawner.
So Breaking Bad and take-out Chinese food. And Richard.
Starting to sound like an OK day.
