Now Playing: Day 832-The Final Road To Survival
Yep. This is what I should had done all day. Sleep.
I had high hopes today that quickly went no where. It's hard having a medical condition that evolves around food. We had plans today that didn't go as expected. I try to not let disappointment get the best of me but its been tough lately with surrounding people in the city letting me down then on top of it my own darn body. My brain was even let down. Yes. That is possible. Hahahaha!
Brian and his family came in town Thursday evening but of course when I make plans in advance they never turn out as expected. At least they were able to enjoy the Reds game that I could only "wish" I attended. This was a great weekend to go out and catch a much needed break but with Gastroparesis always expect the unexpected. I guess this time around I choose the optimistic route and I was sadly disappointed. Tomorrow they head back home down south to Texas. Brian hopes we can visit within the year but right now what he doesn't know is I am still trying to test "any" long distance trip just in a car. I try to keep certain aspects of my various limitations due to my unique medical condition to a minimum when it comes to friends. I learned from those around the city just like the ole female friends that when I was honest in what I experience medically I was only then poked fun of so now I have my guards back up.
On a day when I would had rather just stayed on my couchbed instead involved lots of walking in order to continue getting this FLIPPIN treatment moving. Eric is already starting to get exhausted from the constant walking and so is my poor body. My brain is the only thing that keeps me moving and motivated. Must be the Angels that surround me telling me to not give up. I'm glad my brain continues to listen. This doesn't stand for a VIP parking spot that allows medical patients to park close. Today it stands for: VIP-VERY IRRITATED PATIENT.
Its not been a good day and all my plans got completely turned around which is a grim reminder that I have to take the good with the bad when it comes to being sick. Its tough when your brain battles with your body but there is always tomorrow. I guess you can say I too have my bad days and no one living in the GP world is perfect. The rest of this evening I took a que from Littleblue and stopped battling disappointment and instead embraced the love from my fur kids.
If the song clearly says, "Life is a highway, I want to ride it all night long" then I better at least start by getting my foot in the door and getting my butt on the seat because its going to be one LONG LIFE RIDE! AMEN WITH A CHERRY ON TOP!!
