An open letter to the Supreme Being of the Universe.

Dear Supreme Being,

Usually, I am a firm believer in two things.
1) Everything happens for a reason, and 2) What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.
But this?
Is killin' me.

I'm starting to think my fortitude is being tested, and I'm writing a formal notice that you can stop now. My limit has been reached, if not surpassed.

The house fire? Maybe I needed to start anew, with a quite literal, clean slate.
King Attitude and The Red One? The ones I affectionately call my children? Let's just say it's a good thing you made 'em so cute, because I've halted trying to barter with Gypsies on their trade. At least for the time being.

This??? This borders on just cruel.
Seriously. The only time I've ever heard of "parvo" is from dogs being sick.
You gave me a dog virus?
Maybe my lesson is I needed to know that humans can get the parvovirus too. I dunno.
What I do know is, that it sucks.
Who the heck created a virus that presents as rheumatoid arthritis?
They are pure evil.
My joints are a swollen knotty mess, and the pain. My gawd, the pain!
It's literally almost unbearable. And by unbearable, I mean I've considered going Evil Dead style and contemplated lopping off body parts with a chainsaw, just to get some relief.

And this can continue for "several weeks" to "several months"?
Thank you, but I'm done.
I've had enough.
You may stop testing me, and give me back my "normal" life.
Anytime now.
Now's good for me.

Holy crap! Wish I had a magic wand to wave and make it go away. *sigh* Sending healing thoughts your way...and good drugs to ease the pain!

kristi said...

Damn girl. I hope you get better soon!

Dana said...

Yuck! This does not sound pleasant at all! Hope you start feeling better soon! Until then, try holding out on the chainsaw. You need those limbs so you can start kicking some serious virus ass! Feel better. :-)

Terri said...

Ow. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Shondira said...

Let's wallow on our pain together :(

mom2spiritedboy said...

Ok that is just one low blow after another. Feel better soon!

Piscesgirl said...

Holy crap! I hope you get better sooner rather then later!

Tanya @ TeenAutism said...

Oh, man. That is just the last thing you need. Sending my best healing wishes!

Thanks, everyone. This is truly the most bizarre thing I've ever had. Y'know, virus-wise. Meh.

Joeymom said...

Oh no! I am so sorry! Hope they at least give you decent pain meds.

Ashley's Mom said...

I'm so sorry. I have rheumatoid arthritis and your're right - it sucks and it hurts A LOT.

Try to rest and get better soon. I will be thinking about you...

Write if you need to b*tch :)

Hope you get adequate pain relief, and that this resolves soon. ((()))
