22 May Traveling Troubles

Traveling with a chronic illness can really take a stab at your mental strength. My biggest fear is arriving too late for the opportunity to take a nap. i need my rest. It is very hard on my body when I can't stop to rest. A day in the life of travel can feel like a lifetime--or at minimum, like a very long day. Wow. Delta is paying for a cab into Charlotte. I received an awesome $6 voucher that has to be used at the present airport. How wonderful that I might, just might, make it into the deep woods by 9:00pm before my relaxing two hour drive to my final location. And oh, that's if I make it to my first destination and all connections are just that ---connecting! After a slumber, I can have a morning greeting of sunshine and tweeting birds. Then back into the...

29 Feb Hot Water Just Won’t Do ( This Morning)

Not to mention the 7 to 8 hours of talking while on my feet. Let's see what happens, because I didn't get to bed until after midnight, about 1:20 am. Whatever sleep meds I took had to be supplemented with Diphenhydramine....

06 Apr Delayed Day of Pain

I had a rough day yesterday.  It was one of those days where you start off to the airport at 7:00am, a wreck and heavy traffic allows you to have praise service in the car for almost two hours. By the time you get free to really drive faster than 6 mph, you have already missed you plane.  Of course I try my best to pack light and just have two carry ons.  It wasn't going to happen on this 8 day stint of travel--whether I used the hotel dry cleaning services or not-- I just couldn't do it. I needed my "emergency" materials. So of course this guy tries to cut me off at the rental car return location. Bless his heart, because we were on the same plane.  I was right after him at the customer service area. He was so dramatically upset inpatient with the representative.  Hey, there's...
