Remember when George Constanza had the idea to convince the network to produce a show about nothing starring Jerry Seinfeld?

I've been thinking, "what can I make a post about today. There really isn't anything that I've been doing, reading, seeing or even eating that I can write about so here goes "nothing."

Last week I took a six-pack of Prednisone hoping that it would relieve the pain I was experiencing. 


When I completed the 6 pack I informed the doctor that I had "No Relief."

The physician's assistant that I spoke with suggested that I take an over-the-counter medication, or he could give me a prescription to ease the pain.

I decided I would try the over the counter medication first.

The next day I had an appointment for physical therapy.

The young lady was very knowledgeable and was "easy" on me.  She did say that since this was my first time I could expect some discomfort the next day.

Well the next day, it was not "NOTHING," It was "SOMETHING."

Again, I called the physician's assistant.

I told him what was going on, and at that point in time I said "ok, I'll try the pain medication."

Well, I got the medication delivered to me, no problem this time. 

Unfortunately or fortunately the pharmacy knows me now!

I'll spare you the details, but the bad reaction I had, from the pill that was supposed to help, was "NOT NOTHING."

After a few days, the effects of the medicine got out of my system and the pain eased up on it's own.

I'll be seeing the doctor as soon as he returns from his vacation, which could be in a few weeks. 

So, that's my story about "NOTHING." 

I think it really turned out to be "SOMETHING."

I must tell you, I really got a kick out of writing about "NOTHING."

Oh Millie,
you always speak in a special way to me. Hopefully you soon feel better.
I am experiencing some of what you are and do do not like it.

Hi Millie - I have loved your blog & vlog for years - you consistently write from the heart, and have charmed me from the onset. Hope the pain is going "easy" on you. You're an inspiration. Keep up your beautiful, fun spirit, and looking forward to the next 'Adventure of Millie' even if it's about Nothing because your nothing's are SOMETHING! Love you!
I enjoy your posts, Millie! I hope that you feel better soon. -Amy from California.
Well I got a big kick reading your nothing.. Clever!!!
I hope you feel better soon! And your blog about "nothing" definitely became something, and you made me laugh. Thanks Millie!
So sorry to hear you aren't well. Feel better.
It is amazing what we can come up with when we think we have nothing to say!!
I was suggested this web site by way of my cousin. I'm now not positive whether this publish is written by him as nobody else recognise such distinctive about my problem.You are wonderful! Thanks!
Some times a bump in the road is really a pot hole. Sounds like you have resurfaced from the hole for now. Dianne
