Saturday morning—Farmers’ Market morning—and I wanted to take some kind of drug and wake up tomorrow. Sciatica is a pariah of pain. If I am carrying something when a spasm comes, I either drop it or fling it across the room and if the spasm lasts, I will fall down if there is not something for me to grab to stay upright. This morning was torture.
This afternoon was better and tonight is almost comfortable. This is a new way of life.
Facing a lot of downtime due to this new aspect of living, I signed up with Netflix today and what a treat I have had today. First I watched a Palestinian film and then a Spanish film. What a great deal, and the first month is free.
