Just Call Me The Hulk


Dr. Painless put me on a short term, high dose of oral steroids yesterday. 

Supposedly, they'll calm down my sky-rocketing pain level. 

I had to, sheepishly, confess how much time I spent with my camera while in Boston.  For some unknown reason, he wasn't surprised in the least.


I owe all of you an apology for writing under the influence so often since my Boston trip.  I know you understand I've been going through an abnormally tough time lately, but I apologize anyway.  

The doc tells me I'll be feeling much less pain in the next 48 hours.

I hope so.

It would be nice to get back to my "normal" pain level instead of the I'm-going-to-lose-my-mind-and-start-throwing-things pain.  I also can't wait to cut back on my pain meds so I can think clearly again.

I'm sorry for being such a downer lately.  I'll be bigger  more muscley  better soon.  

I can't wait!

The Physician's Assistant at my doc's office asked, a few months ago, if she could take photography lessons from me beginning in September.  She, therefore, has a vested interest in getting me better and wants to see a camera in my hands again as soon as possible.

Did I mention I love my doc's office?

They've never once told me to put the camera down.

Not once.

    Ooh, hope they work real soon. 🙂
    I don’t blame you for loving your docs office.

    If you start having problems sleeping it’s probably the steroids (just so you know). I love steroids. I have a skin condition that makes me want to peel ALL OF MY SKIN OFF on bad days. Steroids help me live in my skin on those days (literally). So – enjoy while you can. You won’t bulk up, you’ll be fine. And – congrats on the local nominations for the blogging stuff. It’s nice to be recognized and appreciated by your peeps!!

    Well that sucks. I’m sorry you’ve been feeling so much pain and hope those steroids work.
    Hugs and healing light at ya!

    Your appetite may go through the roof while taking the steriods, so be conscious of that, as well as the fact that taking steroids will halt weight-loss in its tracks. DO NOT let either of those things keep you from taking the steroids.
    And give Dr. Painless and his staff a kiss from me, for not telling you to put the camera down. Bless ’em.

    I do hope you feel better soon and you never owe anyone an appology! I am glad to hear that they don’t want to change you and understand that capturing moments is just as important as breathing for a photographer. *HUGS*

    Saw on Twitter earlier that you’re feeling quite a bit better. That brings a smile to my face.
