I'm Goin' Down

It's been more than a week now and I think I'm still in a whopper of a Sjogren's flare. Not that there is ever a good time for a flare but this timing made me mad. I was not graceful at all when facing this one. In fact I think I begged more for this one to be postponed more than any other.

My little sister was driving up with my "preen-cess" of a niece and her Facebook lovin' dog. We were going to enjoy the pool, go shopping, play in parks and top the week by seeing Train and Maroon 5. My sis and I had been looking forward to this for months. 

As I was waiting for my sister to pull up out front I could feel my energy evaporating from my body. Now that I can recognize the onset of a flare my mind races with pleas of mercy. 

The week was filled with lots of fun, laughter, love and hugs. I was pushing it though and with each day of not following the rules I knew I'd pay for it. 

Well, this week has been a doozie. Boy howdy I'm feelin' it. Since I can't do anything at this point but to find a place of acceptance I've found myself with a tune swirling around in my head. 

"I'm going down..." 

It's bugged me for days now because not only can I not remember the rest of the words but I don't know who sang it. After a few clicks Google led me to this:

Mary J Blige I'm Goin' Down

Oh the irony when an ad for Visine was on the YouTube page. "Visine Tired Eye Relief" You gotta be kidding me!

Then I saw this little diddy by Bruce Springsteen:

Bruce Springsteen I'm Going Down

I think I have a couple of anthems for next time I feel a flare coming on. So, until this thing Mary would sing in her soulful way...I'm goin' dah-ah-ah-ah ahwn...I'm goin' dah-ah-ah-ahwn...

Oh, btw...Train and Maroon 5 are AWESOME live! Also, making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a soon to be 4 year old "preen-cess" is the best medicine. Best!
