And so the steroids begin.
Yes, I finally went to the local mini health clinic.
Hobbled in with a scream or two.
After waiting for an hour or so,
with the cough and cold gang,
I got called into the office.
What I wanted was an x ray
and a referral for physical therapy
or massage therapy.
Nope, I got told that I needed an mri.
That they couldn't order that.
That only my normal Dr. could do that.
(me thinking, great I wasted my hobbling time)
She gives me three meds.
One ~ muscle relaxant
Two ~ pain
Three ~ a week of steroids
Well, isn't that great.
So, I hobbling out and got to my car.
Had to hobble in person to the drug store.
Those pain meds aren't just for anyone.
They had to see my face.
One look and they knew it was me.
So, this morning I took my first steroid pills.
They are known to be fun fun fun.
As a previous taker of steroids,
I know all too well what they do to you.
So much fun.
So, I am on this road again.
Been a while since I got this bad.
Almost six years.
Will this help me.
I hope so.
From previous experience,
I know that this is just the start.
And, this is just for my pinched nerve.
Not for my cold/cough that's being mean.

Note ~ I might be writing blogs at four in the morning.
That's what steroids did to me last time.
