It’s Just a Jar

February 28, 2015

Today was a moderate pain day. Mild as in low body aches, nausea, achy feet, and slight headache.

You know what I really dislike? Opening a bottle or jar for the first time breaking the seal. It literally hurts my hands! It cuts into them and hurts so bad!! It frustrates me to open a new jar of jam, bottle of juice, or jug of orange juice. I get so angry about it being so difficult to open that I just want to scream, “Why is it so hard?! Why make it so difficult?! It’s just a jar!”

This is one solution for opening the jars that hurt hands:

In other news, I got extremely nauseous this evening. I don’t know what caused it. I became bloated, gassy, and nauseated extremely fast. After thirty minutes I realized it wouldn’t pass, so I had a cup of hot ginger tea. And, like always, I was better within five to ten minutes. So thankful for that tea!

I swear, that upset stomach and accompanying headache always sneaks up on me. It doesn’t have to be something I ate or drank. It just comes out of nowhere. It’s aggravating and annoying!

It’s been a few hours since I’ve had the tea, so I’ve been relaxing on the couch. I spent most of the afternoon at my desk writing, so my back is really hurting. I feel like I have a pinched nerve in my right hip/lower back. It hurts to bend at the waist or shift my weight to that side of my body. I’m going to take my cherry juice, drink some sleepy time tea and hit the bed.

Good night
