Pain vs Pleasure

Yesterday I experienced more pain than pleasure I am afraid especially towards the evening.

It was a pleasure to see my daughter and lovely grandson and I really appreciated the fish and chip lunch and birthday cake they brought round.

It was also a great pleasure to have my very brave husband home. Colin got through the angiogram to be told by the cardiologist that he had excellent arteries and a healthy looking heart. He and I were of course delighted by this news but also rather confused as to why he is experiencing chest pain and feeling very tired following doing quite menial tasks. More investigations need doing I think. We do appreciate that stress may be a factor but I think something else may be going on.

None of these pleasures could balance out the pain I was feeling last night. The pain definitely increases in the evening so I lay there feeling really sorry for myself and actually crying with the pain which is very unlike me. I tried hot and cold presses, took double the dose of Tramadol, paracetamol and then a sleeping tablet. Together this eventually did the trick and knocked me our for the night.

This morning it is not so bad, perhaps a 5/10. Good job as I have some last minute prep to do for tomorrow nights Village Secrets event. I am really looking forward to this and will NOT allow any amount of pain to get the way. The only disappointment will be that dosed up on pain killers I will not be able to join the girls in a glass of a Prosecco 😦 I will not however let that stop me from having fun.

I hope you all have more pleasure than pain today, in fact I hope you have no pain at all.

Have a great day.
