“It is an awful thing to be betrayed by your body. And it’s lonely, because you feel you can’t talk about it. You feel it’s something between you and the body. You feel it’s a battle you will never win . . . and yet you fight it day after day, and it wears you down. Even if you try to ignore it, the energy it takes to ignore it will exhaust you.” ― David Levithan, Every Day
The Good Nurse has decreed that today there shall be no blogging. This patient must sleep. And if there is no sleeping there must be rest.
It’s a hard battle this patient is fighting. Up all night with bone pains and burning skin, misbehaving eyes and a stomach and bowels that are most uncooperative.
No, no writing today. Instead there will be medicine, more medicine, and a soft bed, with pillows and attentive canine nurses, which are, of course, the very best kind.
Normal blogging may resume tomorrow. Or not. In any case, we will keep you posted.
