Fighting Through

Gout, that is. The nemesis of half my life began to rear its ugly head Sunday morning. I made it through church just fine. By mid afternoon, the pain and swelling was such that it was difficult to stand and walk. Even with various OTC meds, (for those of you in Rio Linda, that means over the counter medications...lol) by early the next morning I was in no condition to work. So I stayed home.....using ibuprofen to relieve the swelling....I was finally feeling better at around 8pm that night. So I went back to work today. The gout pain remains in the left ankle. I was able to get around at work, but took longer to get things done. The saying I have heard is true.....

When your feet (and ankles) hurt, your whole body hurts.

So here I sit in my recliner.......I like my recliner. :-)

Until next time, keep your stick on the ice.
