If the roads are dry before it hits freezing again I'll probably be OK, but if not I've got the shitty 23 mile drive tomorrow on roads in an area not prepared for snow and ice. It's not really that I doubt my ability to drive, it's more than people here are clueless about driving in icy conditions.
I'm not sure which is worse, those who believe they can drive in anything because they are use to such conditions (not you) or those who are clueless because they are not use to such conditions (still not you ). Around here far too often driving carefully in icy and snowy conditions is considered a sign of someone who CANNOT drive in the snow and those who "know how to drive" in these conditions prove themselves by driving way too fast in all wheel drive vehicles blasting the careful drivers if you know what I mean. As you know I have to cross the river a lot, you would be surprised how many people do not have a clue that bridges freeze first and can freeze when the temp is above freezing.
Of course there are some drivers who actually believe that perhaps setting the alarm 1/2 an hour early and leaving early is a better idea than hitting snooze three more times...but they never seem to be on the road with me
I hope you can stay home
Actually I'm at work now and it wasn't too bad. I left an hour later than rush hour and the roads weren't that busy. Saw wrecks on the way and idiots everywhere, but I took it slow and kept my eyes on the road and other traffic.
Should be gone by this afternoon as the temperature should stay in the mid to high 30s for the rest of the day.

A lot of times the side FX (drowsiness in this case) will dissipate over the course of a couple 3 weeks as you get accustomed to the drug, so bear with it as much you can. If it doesn't go away, contact your doctor.
The main thing is, does it help with the pain? I hope so.

It is a case of nothing can be done and it is degenerative meaning f**k all can be done to fix it since it isn't anything I did to damage it, Its grown with me since bloody puberty. All I can expect is 'Well Mr.Stockwell it is x amount of magnitudes more f**ked since we last looked five or six years ago". I'm only thirty one and I feel like a damned burden to my family and just wish that neither of my two children suffer anything like it (My Mother does, So chances are + a splash of my oh so good luck one of them will do). I will loath myself even more so the day that ever happens
Plenty more that's got my goat but that is the big one and I'll leave it at that for now
Best to everyone as always
Dean I'm wishing the best for you, shoot me a message on FB if yah need to chat (we have some catching up to do anyhow). There is no way on this earth that you should be angry at yourself or blame yourself if either of your children get the same condition and I know you're not a burden to your family. Dean you're an amazing man and tbh if I can half the man you are I am doing fantastic, you put your family first, you're a great dad (who has had a lot to deal with) and you come to KvR, often a sea of hate and have always been top notch. That's what your children will get from you (or one of the many good things)...hell you're twice the man I am just for going to the doctor So please take care of yourself, in fact I hope you get that ibby soon because you deserve to spoil yourself once in a while...thanx for being my friend, I am truly the better just having you for a friend and if there is anything I can do to help just let me know (even if you just need some corny jokes to cheer your up)
