I’m Hurting

After last night’s blog post, a couple of people came up to me today concerned.  They wondered what was going on.  As I said, I had a bit of a crazy week — okay, a very crazy week.  I can usually tolerate crazy weeks; however, when I’m hurting, things are different.

It hurts to stand.  It hurts to sit.  It hurts to walk.  It even hurts to sleep.  (I say that because, when I wake up, my bed is all torn up.  I usually stay in one relative position all night but the past few days, I’ve twirled the sheets and blanket all over the place.)  I just plain ol’ hurt.  Between the weather driving my sinuses to new levels of ouch and my arthritis attacking all my joints — even joints I don’t usually think about — I’m a physical mess.  This weather has got to straighten out soon.  If it doesn’t, I might ask may doctor to put me into an induced coma until it gets better out!  🙂

So, anyway, add that level of hurt to a crazy week and a very crazy day, you can imagine how I feel.  I opened the church this morning and then had the 8:30 a.m. Mass.  Right after Mass, I ran next door to the Weis Center to give a talk.  Immediately after the talk, I ran to the parish to do a funeral.  A quick lunch a visit with my aunt and I was back at the parish for afternoon confessions and evening Mass.  I’m going to take my evening meds now and go to bed.  I’ve got the 6:30 and 8:00 a.m. Masses tomorrow.

Here’s hoping for some restful sleep and a much better week beginning tomorrow.

  1. I’m sooooo sorry to hear (read) about your ‘ailments’. I know the weather is god-awful, and the rest is effected by the weather. No matter where I go, I hear about the ‘weather’. No one is happy! And, of course, we all complain! Even when it is warm, we will still complain. Life here on earth is not meant to be “heaven”, I guess. As Kevin once said to me… “You’re just waiting, aren’t you!” (I hope I’m doing more than just waiting!) Hang in there… and God Bless! Pat K.
