Today, I am happy to report that I am much recovered from last week’s back injury. The back muscles are still a wee bit sore and I move verrrrrry carefully, but I am no longer immobile or crying.
Along with pain meds and a muscle relaxant, my doctor prescribed a steroid. He warned me: “The steroid may make you feel a bit…mmmm…b****y, and it may cause hot flashes.”
That’s where I live, Doc. I thought it was called “menopause.”
But menopause on steroids? Seriously?! I trashed the prescription for the steroid. I decided I would rather live with the pain.
Don’t get me wrong: I love this new season of life. LOVE IT!
But let’s not get all crazy, Doc.
