Why isn't it The Agony of Victory? There are times when winning comes at a much dearer price than defeat. I won today. I was in charge of things today, went to the city, managed several hours in the office, came home while still walking easily, no pain, no limp.

Walked in the door, walked up the stairs and collapsed into a small, limp heap on the bed. Took a nap, two and a half hours, willingly, without reservations. I never, NEVER take naps.

Technically, today I won. But it sure doesn't feel like the Thrill of Victory. Not yet.
