As I’ve mentioned before, I have arthritis in my neck and bulging discs hitting my spinal cord. This has caused weakness in my right arm and a decrease in grip strength, among other very painful issues in my neck/shoulder area itself. (I personally feel having this issue in my left arm would be way better, but apparently God didn’t agree – so here we are.)
Yesterday, I received my first round of steroid injections to help decrease my pain and regain the full use of my right arm.
I’ve taken Prednisone in the past and always have a hard time with it. Basically, I feel crazy, can’t sleep, and get super jittery. I also tend to go into anxiety overload!

For some reason, I really thought having steroids shot directly into my spine would prevent these side effects…
After being up pretty much all night and feeling like my skin is crawling I can officially say:
THAT WAS THE MOST RIDICULOUS THOUGHT I’VE EVER HAD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!
I just wanted to share my stupidity with the rest of you. Feel free to point, laugh & call me names. I’m definitely doing it!
Happy Friday! 😊
How’s your weekend starting out? Please tell me you’re all feeling better than me!!
We had an amazing time on our vacation. But I think my brain may still be there!
I cannot seem to get back into the swing of things now that I’m back home… I don’t feel like cleaning, writing, cooking, or really doing anything that requires effort at all. Even carrying on coherent, meaningful conversations is just too much! Why can’t I just Cyndi Lauper my life away?
I’m aware that my refusal to be a productive member of society again probably means the cruise we took spoiled me just a little too much!
For now, I’m okay with it. I’m usually so stressed about everything that’s it’s nice to have a more laid back attitude… At least until I starve as I chill in my dusty home reading books and talking to people on the internet. (Can someone remind me to eat occasionally?)
Seriously, am I the only person who struggles to get back into the normal flow of life after vacation? What do you do to get motivated again?
