Frustration with wrappers

prednisone

Steroid-driven hunger drives me to eat anything in my path. After 3 years of taking daily prednisone (doses ranging up to 80 mg a day), I have the body to show for it. I am a jiggggly woman with a moon-faced shape. Maybe when I go on a hunger-rampage I should consider chomping on a piece of lettuce instead of the fried turkey leg… but I digress…
kitkat
Today, I could not resist the Kit Kat staring at me. I immediately tackled the candy bar and started to unwrap it, but then I came across a dilemma. I COULD NOT UNWRAP IT! I tried every technique known to man, including the one where you tear along the printed dashed line and the one where you split the wrapper by using both your hands (similar to opening that stubborn bag of chips), AND NOTHING! I could not get into the blasted Kit Kat. I looked at my hands with such disappointment. My poor hands are no longer dependable tools. They ached and were a bit swollen. This wasn’t the first time that joint pain and inflammation has kept me from getting things done. It gets frustrating but we must learn to cope, especially when we are too young to be complaining about “achy” hands. Luckily, I was able to bug a co-worker to open my candy bar to feed my steroid-driven hunger. However, someone is not always around. If I can’t find someone to help me out, I just put whatever I am doing down and walk away. There is no need to get frustrated. I usually make another attempt once my hands feel better. But most of the time, I usually throw the item against the wall. Problem solved.

STAY FABULOUS!
