WEGO Health Activist Writers Challenge Day 26 (Pain Free Pass, Birthday, AARP!)
"What’s a day that you wish you could have used a pain-free pass (either in the future or the past)? How would being pain or worry-free impact that day?"
It's funny I should get this topic today of all days, today is my birthday. It's a number I would rather not speak or hear out loud. When I was at the Rheumatologist the nurse was talking about this number to me, since she will reach it soon. She took my blood pressure, it was sky high! As soon as the conversation went back to normal, it went down! This last month I have been getting flooded with AARP emails, and snail mail. Every site I visit, there is an ad for it, coincidence? I don't think so! They are trying to make me believe I have suddenly entered a club I'm not ready to belong to, I keep waiting for my entire head of hair to turn gray! It feels like I was in high school yesterday, how did this happen? I still go to rock concerts and listen to Kid Rock! I'm not AARP material!
I think I'm off topic, pain free pass was it? I would like to use it today! I would use it any day. I can't remember the last time I was truly without any pain. Pain is part of my life like going to work is part of yours. I would like to have used it on my wedding day, on every event my kids were involved in, for all of my grandkids events, I can't answer how being pain or worry free would impact that day mainly because I can't remember living without either.
