*Face Palm* #232 + Happies

My brand new Kindle died.  It stopped charging 3 days ago while I was reading and charging.  Luckily for me, the Kindle reading app is on more than one of my devices, but having the Kindle go down was really a kick in my…head?

Since receiving the Kindle, thank you again to whoever sent it to me in the first place, it has become one of the main go-to devices for when I’m not feeling well.  The other, as most of you know, is the XBox One and TV.  When the arthritis is especially heinous, I can lie quietly in the bed and read or listen to a book.  This helps me keep my mind away from all the pain.  With the migraines, it’s a bit trickier, but have discovered when I put the Kindle on the night-time reading setting with a migraine, I can read pretty well, just somewhat slower.

When I am out going to the numerous doctors’ visits of late, the Kindle always accompanied me.  Like I said, it is one of my go-to devices for comfort, entertainment, and, in some weird way, a non-judging friend present 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – as long as it is charged, of course.

Lucky for me, the Kindle was a straight Amazon purchase and after a short text chat with Sangaya, a replacement Kindle is winging its way to me as we speak and will be here before the end of next week!  Relief!

That is sort of one of those bad news-good news stories.

In straight out “good news” stories, the migraines have been at bay for several days now and my energy is beginning to climb!  Once more I am inside my own skin and it feels wonderful.  The arthritis is really a painful old friend, and since it is the only thing bothering me now – trust me, it bothers me enough for me not to like him, Arthur, that is – I feel set free from a very heavy set of chains.
