India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

I can... Do things. #spoonielife #myspoons

(That's a GIF of ladies dancing in a studio with the caption Namaste.)
So I went to this place for an same-day urgent consult.

They gave me the pain meds I was out of - Celebrex & Gabapentin. Then they gave me a shot for my new pain and a steroid.

I feel... Brand new. 🐣

(That's an emoji of a chick still an egg.)
I take that back.

I feel like me.

I wonder who even listens or cares when I post about #ChronicPain outside the #spoinie and disabled community.

I really do.
Of course I know why I do it.

I'm trying to humanize people whose #ChronicDisease may not be apparent.

It's sad that humans don't naturally want to save an abstract life.
I know that hearing other people's story extends the life of #myspoons. So I share mine in hopes of doing the same for others.

And to be a part of #shareourpain & lots of other reasons.
