The Essay : places …
From the bed to the settee.
I seem to have only two places I go these days and that is from the bed to the settee and then back to the bed again.
Opening my eyes I cast my scanning senses throughout my body in order to assess how I am doing today. I do this today and every day because if I don’t I may attempt to get out of bed and collapse to the floor.
have I got a migraine …
This has to be the very first and most important question that I ask myself. Otherwise, too much movement could make me vomit severely and without let up, every 15 minutes, for the rest of the day.
what and where hurts and can I make it to the bathroom or do I need to wait until my pain medications have worked enough, or even at all …
Again the questions must be asked and the answers will determine my behaviour.
the bed or settee
places to choose from to ‘be’
maybe the coffin
… the end …
