Oh this day

Yep - it's Thursday again. We all know my feelings about this particular day each week, so I will spare you (and me) the ordeal of why. However, I have particularly new and different reasons for my Thursday dread today: I am having "injections" in my neck this afternoon. Blenheim. Heaven knows I need some help, anything really, to deal with the neck pain that is choking the life right out of me. But "injections" --- ? Really? I hate shots. Hate them. I am speaking of the kind that go in the arm or buttikus, the usual kind. I honestly hate needles. However, I have mostly gotten over this fear, and faced many, many needles like a big girl. But the only times I have had "injections" anywhere on me, was not a good experience. I dread this - with a capital, effing D. And --- because my wonderful insurance company won't pay for the regular type of procedure, done in a hospital with a big x-ray type of machine to guide the doc, I am having some sort of inferior, shorter-time acting type of needle hell, done in my doc's office. Oh joy, oh good times, say a prayer for me about three-thirty this afternoon, okay? I'll let you all know how it goes if I live. Later, gators.

I will be sending you good vibes at 3:30, you can count on that. I hate those needles too, but just keep thinking of the sweet relief from pain they will bring. Don't you just wish you could pull the insurance individuals who make those arbitrary decisions into your body to feel the pain you suffer? Bet they couldn't take it more than 5 seconds. Hang in there.

You're always in my thoughts and my prayers dear friend. It will be fine. I said so. They don't want me coming over there!!!! My daughter has had this done before and has had good experiences with it. God Bless.
