No, I am not in a prison with bars or stripes on my clothes.  Somehow though I truly feel it wouldn’t be any worse.

Every day is scheduled around my medications.  They dictate my life from morning to sunset.

I have a feeling I am not the only one who feels this way.  So, it is a safe guess that I am not alone in this.

  • Morning – put the coffee maker on.  Start my meds, Warfarin is first, then onto the rest of them.  I do not know anymore all the names of them for there are many.
  • Visit for some time with my best friend.
  • Pour a bowl of cereal for breakfast.  Take Naproxen.
  • Watch t.v. – more than likely fall asleep while watching.
  • Depending on whether or not if I have a doctor’s appointment.  Maybe, I may have to go for blood work, comes with the fact I take Warfarin to prevent blod clots.
  • Now time for supper, eat, and again take Naproxen.
  • Visit again with best friend.
  • Watch more t.v. – spend time with my dog, Natalie
  • Start taking my night meds.
  • Go to bed.

Next morning repeat the same as the day before.

Oh, by the way, I do find time to read all of the blog posts I follow.  Even send some emails.

There you have it, welcome to my life, prison!

    You have a routine…which many see as a good thing. Yes…a routine can be like a prison…if you let it. I see you as a person who has accomplished many things because you like challenges and you are a thinker and a doer. I also see you as a person who has a deep and abiding faith. You want to rethink scripture and apply it to your life. That is so commendable. It sounds to me like you are ready to accept a new challenge. In my experience, the biggest challenge of all is waiting for just the right challenge to present itself that will make one a better person and more capable of blessing others with one’s life. Hang in there…something very challenging and just tailor made for you is coming your way…I’m sure.

      Thank you for your comments. I guess maybe I have been experiencing fatigue. I agree that my routine is good for me because it keeps me from going off the rails with extreme mood swings. This blog post was how I was feeling at that moment. I was invited to stay at my daughters. I had to decline because if I have a bad night I would not have the freedom to get up and just putter around the house. So, my blog posts like any other social media is a snapshot in a timeline.

    No worries. I just got back from 8 nights at my daughters. It is so good to be home and to have the freedom to watch TV at any hour of the day or night…or do whatever!
