Arthritis robbed me of my Christmas spirit

I'm trying to find my Christmas spirit. I've had it as I did all of my Christmas shopping online. I had it when I was sobbing over this amazing miracle The Bloggess inspired in so many people. I had it this weekend while I was making dough ornaments with the midgets and her cousins. I even had it as I was wrapping presents last night.

This morning, though, I woke up with a raging motherfucking arthritis flare. I can barely walk and there isn't a single position that feels comfortable or pain free. It's some bullshit, yo! I'm taking massive doses of NSAIDs and Tramadol and from time to time Vicodin and it's still agony. Makes it hard to think about Christmas and Santa and all that bullshit.

The only thing that's helping at all is singing this song at the top of my lungs, I don't know why...maybe it's the beat, which is truly groovy...or maybe it's yelling "Fuck You" at the top of my lungs.

You are having it now so that you are rested and healthy for Christmas - I know you, you'd work yourself to death on the 24th and spend the 25th in a drug induced haze.

Sleep, make everyone else clean and watch the kidlets for a change and have a bouncy motherfucking amazing Christmas, yo!

I can feel your pain, literally, as all this cold weather we're having has made my arthritis go into overdrive - not to mention kissing the icy pavement with my backside a few days ago lol Here's to you feeling better soon, finding that spirit and having a good holiday :)
