The week did not start well.

Listen to me blather on... )

The journey is good.

Sometimes, you just have to hang on for the ride.

Namaste.

On the way to work this morning, I saw movement in the little window where I see my odometer.

A message was flashing.

Service traction control

Just for good measure, the appropriate icon lit up, a little further left on another panel.

It was followed by another - different - flashing message.

Service brake assist

It has a glowing icon, too - located waaay off to the right of all the other action.

WTF?
Because I ain't already bleeding money... )

The journey is good.

Sometimes the pain - whatever its source - is some kind of fierce.

But the journey is good.

Namaste.

It's been six and a half weeks since I wrecked my car, and a little over one month since my surgery to fix my badly broken left wrist.

I've officially joined a new club. I'm now a member of a huge group of people no one wants to be affiliated with.

People who have chronic pain disorders for which there is no cure, only the hope of remission.

I have Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

Those are two very fancy ways of saying that, for some unknown reason, my sympathetic nervous system has sent the nerves at the site of my fracture into constant, screaming overdrive.
For all the specialists I've had to see, it is my physical therapist who is my hero.

Any of you who want to wander down this path with me, look behind the cut. )

The journey is good.

There are no coincidences, but there are some tough lessons along the way.

Namaste.
