When People Like My Posts…

…it makes me feel all warm and happy inside. I look at the gravatars and names of the sweet people who took the time to read something I wrote and click “like”, and I πŸ˜€ a happy smile.

I wish I could give each one of you a great big grandma’s ((HUG)).

A torn shoulder, prescription drug side effects, and an MRI, Oh My!

Image from This Charming Charlie on Tumblr.

I injured my right shoulder several months ago, lifting a window air conditioner all by myself. It wasn’t getting any better, so my doctor gave me prednisone.

Now I have a bright red itchy rash and extreme anxiety. Apparently, these adverse reactions are common with this drug, especially in women over sixty.

Lucky me.

I had another MRI today. Normally I am not claustrophobic. But probably because of my prednisone-induced anxiety, it was all I could do to keep from screaming during the hour-long procedure. In fact, I did scream a little at one point. Embarrassing.

I am grateful for good medical care and super thankful for my loving husband, who is doing way more than his share while my body heals. I hope I’m not coming across like a big whiney baby in this post. But I just wanted to let my blogging friends know that if I seem a little strange lately, well, that’s because I am… πŸ˜•
