I'm feeling a bit battered this morning.
I went to the doctor on Friday because of back pain and was diagnosed as having a kidney stone. I was told it is small and should pass on it's own. I went home popped a pain pills and started drinking "boat loads" of water. (That's the doctor's words, not mine.)
Saturday afternoon I was struck with a sudden pain in my abdomen. It felt very much like giving birth except maybe a little more painful because it was relentless. It lasted about 45 minutes. I'm guessing the stone was moving.
All day yesterday I hurt. I didn't sleep much at all last night. Even with pain pills on board the pain kept waking me up.
Now I'm sleepy and in pain. My emotions are a little on edge. I've read a few posts this morning and all of them have made me cry.
Somehow, because of my pain and exhaustion I am more acutely aware of how much diabetes sucks.
My pain and exhaustion will pass. But, my son will still have diabetes. And, so will Brendon, Joseph, Emma, Charlie........the list goes on and on.
It just doesn't seem fair.
