Putting Me First - at last

Up early this morning with extreme back pain.

I was supposed to go to a facility this morning - a drive of three hours both ways - not a good thing when you have back pain. Once upon a time (like last month), I would have just gone and suffered. Not now - I'm calling the Regional Nurse to tell her I won't be there and to tell her what I expect the building to fax to me weekly.

I stood under a hot shower. I took three Advil. I put on lidocaine patches. I'm only driving to the office.

Maybe I've finally realized that I have to take care of Mitzi before I can take care of anyone (everyone?) else.
It's about damn time!
