Compulsive hoarding is a mental disorder that is just beginning to be understood. As a hoarder, I have acquired things over the years with a specific purpose in mind at the time of the acquisition, used some of those items for their intended purposes, forgotten the goal for different objects, but now that I find that they have outlived their purpose in my life I am struggling to rid myself of those same things.

Let's just say I wouldn't make a very good drug addict.

Woke up this morning in horrific pain. On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 9. I took some prescription ibuprofen, and it did nothing to touch the pain, so an hour and a half later or so, I took a Vicodin. After waiting an hour for it to kick in, and it deciding not to, my wonderful husband, being very concerned about me, insisted I go in to the ER.

Bugster watched the girls for us, and Hubster took me to be seen.

It appears as though I have some sort of complication from the surgery I had at the beginning of August. Looks like more surgery to fix it in the very near future. I'll find out tomorrow when I see my doctor, and we have the opportunity to discuss how to deal with it.

I'm having a hard time putting coherent thoughts together as a result of the stronger pain meds the doctor put me on. Hoping they don't make me get sick to my stomach again. I told you I wouldn't make a very good drug addict. I don't like nausea and wooziness they cause, but I need them to help take the edge off this pain.

I'm thinking this might be a long few days.

I'm off to bed for whatever amount of sleep I might be able to get...


  1. What?! Are you kidding me?

    That's awful. Hang in there, and get better soon!

  2. I am glad I heard from you before I had to go to bed, I worried all day long.

    (((hugs)) to you, I know your family and your doctor will take good care of you.

  3. Oh my! I hope this gets sorted out soon! Take care

  4. Oh no!! More surgery?!? I'm SO sorry you will be in my thoughts and prayers, I hope you get feeling better!
    I LOVE the new look of your blog!!! How did you do it??

  5. Oh dear!! I hope you are out of pain soon! Not fun. Love the new look here.

  6. Yikes!!! Hope to hear you're doing better SOON, even if it means more surgery.

    Sending big hugs and prayers from NC!


  7. Just think though, at some point, you'll not need any meds. Surgery is just a bump in the road to feeling well again. It will get better. -J

  8. Sorry to hear about this. You think, ok, I got the surgery and all is well, and then this happens. Prayers for you.

  9. Oh no! How frustrating to have to deal with this again. I hope you heal quickly and they fix it once and for all.

  10. Look at you all high and still blogging terrific posts!
