Day 65: a setback

Day 65: a setback. Persistent shoulder pain. I haven't missed you, O unwelcome companion. Took Advil - not enough. Took another, plus shoulder rubs. Not enough. So I broke out the big guns and had half a Percocet. That did it.
Weird thing is Percocet does not get me drowsy or high. It reduces/ eliminates pain and suddenly I feel like tackling chores. I put the "perk" in Percocet! So I plowed through a stack of mail, cleaned some clutter and put stuff away.
I ate fine, except I had a leftover cupcake...
Tomorrow is another day - and I hope the pain disappears as inexplicably as it returned.
