Had a marvelous evening with my wife and youngest daughter. Sat down to watch TV after dinner and then it hit.
The spasms felt like individual strands of muscle fiber were being pulled taut like a violin string. This was not in one location, but universal.
I medicated myself and went to bed. I woke up during the night starving (as I often do, the spasms burn a lot of energy.) I ate a bowl of cereal and went back to sleep.
This morning….. ugh.
I must have injured muscles everywhere. I feel like I’ve been drug behind a horse…. over rocks.
I am in good spirits. I am amazed at how this disease works. Unfortunately, I think this is going to take a few days for me to get my body repaired.
I have taken additional meds this morning, to try and loosen the muscles so they will heal. As an additional step, I’m going to remand myself to the wheelchair. I can feel that coming anyway. My thighs absolutely sting when I just got up to fix a cup of coffee w. chicory.
My body is not a happy camper today. But, with God’s help, life will continue. The Sun is shining and the flowers are blooming. It’s going to be a beautiful day.
I thank the Lord that I’m on disability. I would have to miss several days of work for this one.
