To start off with...

The new area rug was delivered a little after 7 am yesterday morning. Luckily, I was dressed because the delivery man had called beforehand to let me know that he was on his way. I was eager to put the rug in place, but I had to wait for the Exfactor to help me do that and he showed up about three hours later. We moved the old rug to its new spot and put the new rug in its place and I have to tell you that it looks beautiful. The colors are even nicer than I had anticipated. It is worth almost going broke for and it is a purchase I am not going to regret. You can tell that I am one happy camper, can't you?
I wasn't so happy with the suggestion from the orthopedic surgeon that I start taking a less strong anti-inflammatory medication. I did that for a few days, but it was a disaster and I had to go back to taking the stronger one because I got so much pain from my fibromyalgia that it make me feel nauseous. I don't think that is supposed to be the idea and I don't need any medical input to make  the right decision about that. My GP had not received the information from the orthopedic surgeon yet and I will have to call next Monday and make an appointment then. 
The brace around my knee is helping me a lot with the stability and the pain and it now doesn't feel good not to wear it like I don't when I've got my pajamas on. The orthopedic surgeon had said that it was up to me if I wanted to wear one, but that he thought it would not make much difference, and there again, it shows you how wrong he was. I have no faith left in the man at all and am sorry I let him talk me into trusting him one more time. He did not make my faith in him come true.
I am having awfully boring days lately, at least, that is how I perceive them, and I apologized to the Exfactor yesterday for being such boring company. I think he agrees with this and he accepted my apology with the hope that maybe one day there would be improvement. I don't think there is going to be and I think that I am done being hypomanic or being on the way to it. My medication must be perfectly balanced now and I am just an ordinary run of the mill person that are a dime a dozen. I am no longer interesting.
It is probably for the best that I am no longer interesting because I also don't get into any trouble now. I don't alienate people for one thing. I also don't make all sorts of life altering decisions that I will come to regret.  I wished to be this stable and uninteresting many times and I have gotten what I wished for, and it just goes to show that you have got to be careful what you wish for because it does come true.

I'm glad the rugs are in and places. You seem rather pleased with yourself about this; I suspect with good reason.

I'm also glad the brace is working, regardless of the surgeon's thoughts. As for the pain/anti-inflamatory med, you are the best judge of that for you.

You're not boring. You are, I think, just "normal" as far as most humans go. And normal does note mean uninteresting. You have lots of stories to tell and ideas to think. So focus on them for a bit and see what happens.

Blessings and Bear hugs!
