I thought that I would try something with Meg today since our little heat wave is over. For the past few months, as many of you already know, going shopping can be a very trying experience. Meg can no longer fit into the shopping carts and letting her sit in the back of one was never an option because she was always terrified of being in the back. So letting her walk around usually ended up with me just chasing her all over the store. So today we took a walk down town and I took her stroller with us and told her that if she didn't stay next to me that I would put her in it. She didn't like that idea, so I'm glad to say that she was really good. We went to a little farmer's market and I bought her a small bag of grapes for the walk home. We have to walk along a very busy street which always puts a little fear in me that she'll run into the street, but that little bags of grapes kept her attention and she was very good to stay on the sidewalk. Unfortunately, she didn't want to share any of those juicy grapes with me. Someone just recently asked me "when does things get easier?" and I didn't have an answer, but today showed me that there is a little light at the end of the tunnel. So, now maybe we'll try one of the big stores and see how that goes.

I have my maxed amount of epidural shots of my cervical DDD....(and no one cares about my lumbar DDD)..... I've done physical therapy, muscle relaxers, Amitriptyline, Nortryptiline, desipramine.....narcotics... So I decided to go to a spine specialist and they have me on Gabapentin. Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
