Last week, my knees were hurting so much I contacted the orthopedic office and asked if I could get some cortisone shots in my knees. The shots really do make the pain go away. Or mask the pain. Or whatever. All I know is that I am able to walk and even climb the stairs like a regular person.
But, I have hot flashes, I am starving. I am impatient. I need to pee all the time. I have weird dreams, and I cannot sleep.
Is it worth it? I can't say. When you are not in pain it's hard to remember how disabled you were just a week ago . Do I like the crazy feelings? No. Would I just randomly use these drugs? No. Do my knees feel better? Yes.
I am emotional too. Missing my kids. I mean more than usual. And I dreamed about making macaroni and cheese. From scrap. Gluten free. I cannot think of any time I have dreamed about food and specifically about cooking.
I wonder if, in my steroidal delirium I will create something amazing? Useful? Edible?
Nah, I just feel like I have overdosed on caffeine.
