Never being very well versed in the subtleties of self flagellation and deprivation I did what I REALLY wanted to do! I was not too bad though. I watched The Actress make the green chicken curry - all good fresh ingredients, drank water with dinner, and only had two little beers at the pub. (OK one big beer and one little beer).
Here it is for your reading pleasure... Day 3.
|Edna Everage Day||DAY 3|
|Constant Pain||Constant dull aches||Quite high level of constant pain and continuing headache – got a bit better in the evening.|
|Pain Rating||5||6 then 5|
|Stabbing or Shooting Pain||Intermittent but many times a day – hips, knees, shoulders, back, neck – the usual suspects||Left knee feels like it has fallen apart with my lower leg coming off from the top. Other more intense pain in the usual places too.|
|Energy||Like I used to feel when I had a cold or the flu.||Terrible... About as much bounce as a ball made of clay. Noticeably better in the evening.|

|Hunger||Not usually||I'm hungry and getting sick of this business. My body wants carbs and protein.|
|Cheating||N/A||OK Sue me – I went to my friend's (The Actress) house and had a Thai Chicken Curry – all home made bloody delicious and all fresh.|
