However, I'm having a slight tendency to walk into walls.
But we're going to give it a try, since I appear to have diabetic nerve pain without the diabeetus. Seriously - I have stabbing, shooting, and burning pains in my arms, and that's exactly how the diabetic nerve pain is described (it can also happen elsewhere). More specifically, I have some kind of nerve damage that isn't showing up on basic tests, hence the designation "non-specific neuropathy". I want to take the Lyrica rather than Cymbalta (which was also suggested), because I don't need an anti-depressant.
(They kept asking me if I was depressed. I may be in pain all the time, but depression? No. At the risk of sounding smug, my life is awesome, and I have everything I've ever wanted.)
(Except that damn pony. But I wanted that when I was 13, so maybe I don't need it anymore. I'll go for that winning multi-million dollar lottery ticket instead.)
Those of you who have read my diary for a while know that I am in constant pain, and have been for almost 7 years now. I could really do with a break, and if the Lyrica does the trick, I will be ecstatic.
In a completely unrelated thought, I also now have both Bunny: The book of random, and Bunny: The book of perpetual bewilderment. The first I had to get from Amazon.uk and pay in pounds, but they're totally worth it. As you can see from the proliferation of bunny icons, I like Bunny.
Anyway - I saw an extremely funny thing yesterday, and I am desperately disappointed that I didn't have my camera with me, because if there was ever something that needed to be made into a macro, this was it.
As I was driving out of the base onto 16th street, there was a metrobus blocking the right lane - fortunately, just after the turn I needed. It was billowing clouds of white and black smoke (no flames). As I turned, I realized that the ad on the back was a public safety message that said "See or Smell Smoke? Call 911". I thought it had to be a joke, except for the fact that there were a bunch of irritated passengers sitting on the sidewalk (no-one appeared hurt).
Oh, such a good macro. sigh. Maybe one of the Demotivators - "Economy - The money you save on equipment will help to pay off your lawsuits".
Oh, and tudorlady? Just in case you need a bigger icon picture:
We love Lennie, yes we do.
