12/18/18: Days of Butter Knives and Sledge Hammers

Today is a butter knife kind of day. That is much better than yesterday because yesterday was a f******* sledge hammer kind of day. Now I know you’re probably thinking, “Cailin what the heck are you talking about?” Now you see, as I’m going through my day, I have a pain scale starting off with a butter knife (discomfort) ranging all the way to a sledge hammer (pain). The reason I came up with this scale was to help myself look at my disability in a funny, comical way. It also helps because I can laugh about it while I’m in pain. I use these ratings in a funny sentence all the time. Like how I said, “Today’s a butter knife day.” What will tomorrow be? You’ll just have to wait and see.
