Good morning, checking in! A fib still being checked out, when I went for the ultra sound yesterday the tech was reading my chart and said I look good for all my problems. She was kind and understanding. The medication has controled the heart beat and the fatigue is better. How hard it is to not blame everything on fibro. Funny thing my mood is good and I really do feel okay and positive, hey I will take it.
We have been sunny but in the 60's. We have the pellet stove on in the evenings and some nights as well. The heat does feel good but out comes the humidifier.
Lou, sounds good and exciting to be in your new kitchen soon!
Mimi I slept better last night and I do always feel so much better, sleep is a good thing.
Cece, hope the assisted living works out, it is easier than working with care givers yourself.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
Linda, can I be your friend I need a new phone?
Do not to leave anyone out but memory only comes up so much.
Good morning to most of you as it is almost 10:00 p.m. my day was spent at ER, not fun! I went to new Dr. Stressed and in a hurry with elevated heart rate which I said was stress. It only went up and so did blood pressure, by the time DH got there EMS had me hooked to my second EKG and took me to hospital. Several hours and tests later A Fib and appointment made with a cardiologist. Sent home with more meds yuk, but they are helping.
My motto don't go to Dr. anymore LOL. New dr. Quite concerned about some health issues being blamed on fibro and panic attacks. Also doing some checking thyroid med and lowering it slowly to see if that was a cause.
First time a dr ever said if I can't control your fibro we will find someone who can. Long day but now I realize my extra fatigued is not just my full plate or my full plate caused it.
So hello to everyone and hope you are all sleeping soundly.
Time must have some good wings because I do not know how September can almost be gone. I am busy having so much fun time just flies (fun sounds good!).
Doing okay today went through a rough patch but seems to be letting up a little. I just hate putting out all the supplements I need and then add in meds along with food allergies and intolerances and I am irritated, but seems to be working.
Linda, I answered a post late last week addressed to everyone. I am sure very few saw it. I felt a little dumb when you came up with the dry eyes, as it all made sense to me. If I had kept better track of the cement allergy and what you were taking I could have chirped in sooner. My Dentist has me using a mouth wash for dry eyes and I have been on over the counter liquid tears for a few years. All of this is because of allergies. One thing I procrastinated about for years was a humidifier duh it rains all the time. Between air conditioners and furnaces it can cause dry eyes. I limit my inhaler to emergencies only, during allergy season try to use saline rinse as much as I can and Claritin only when I have to. Don't know if any of that helps.
Well I have some laundry to fold and some errands for my Mom so I hope all can have a few smiles today, read a joke if needed.
I am always up early, in body because the mind wakes me. I am still not functional til about 9:00, what is depressing to me is I use to be to work at 6:30-83D-E15 with enough brain power to drive a bus full of children. Then proceed to teach other's how to dive a bus?
Good morning to all, wishing you a good fall day of color and sunshine.
I would never be able to remember to say something to everyone and get the right names. But I will try as I have a few things to say.
Mimi so glad you are not getting surgery, this morning when I had coffee with my tablet read something you posted to someone else and thought it was you having surgery. Glad yours are all past.
Bette I want a new car.
Lou my husband does remodeling for a living and I hate it when it is a friend and I listen to what goes on in the kitchen it all seems so slow. It is worth the wait though.
Mel, when our body does not do what we want it too it is depressingly blue!
Linda, I feel like a fool. Two years ago I had some real issues with dry eyes, I just never piped in as I was not sure the sequence of all the cement allergies. I have to be aware of meds and dry air, I run a humidifier in the winter to help.
Cece, I think of you often as yes we have some of the same issues going on. I am so glad you had a little help for even a short time.
Cory, very dreary here in NW but we really need some rain to help the dry ground.
If I left any one out just chalk it up to the fact it is me and I could come up with many reasons why my brain does not work right. If grammar is wrong just Blame the fact I seem rushed this evening, but wanted to get this done.
Rain has set in and pain level has gone up. Could just be stress which is nonstop. Just adding on the cancer survival classes once a week has been hard but good. It is all about surviving chronic illness.......which actually helps with the fibro living.
Between DH and some dumb decisions about new trucks finances are there, my daughter's mental illness and cleaning up the mess she made and my Mom I am going crazy. They are real issues in my face. I was reminded my problems are real as well and need to be addressed. So I may have to do what Linda is doing and hide from drama for awhile.
Hard in your own house so may just have to take off in the RV.......maybe just get DH to go some where for the weekend and leave me ther til the next week-83D-E03
I feel better all ready, the heating pad, cup of coffee, dumping and tramadol might have helped"63A
1st car accident was in freak snowstor at the age of 13, head on collision with major head injuries, broken jaw and many stitches in my forehead. I have been rear ended at 4 red lights add a couple of side swipes and I am a mess.
I have never no known a life without pain an wish I knew if they were the reason. I always was low on energy but was able to keep going for quite sometime.
Can they really come up with something that really helps without side effects that are just as bad, that remains to be seen. Just me two cents worth.
Good morning, I am doing good if I post, if I tried to post individually it would take all day.
My days have been filled with taking care of necessary things and I need some fun. My daughter went to the fair yesterday, they had invited me but that sounded like too much work to be fair as it was a state fair. I like little county fair's with less walking and people!
So this week I am working on thinking up something fun to do! Sometimes the planning is a good diversion.
Take care of you first is hard, but reme the stewardess always says put your own oxy mask on first,
Sogg here in the NW but cozy here in my blanket. Last winter DH bought me a blanket with velvet on one side and fake sherpa on the other.....love it!
I had some trouble sleeping for awhile but doing much better now amazing what sleep does for mood and pain. Faitgue still here though, but by pacing I feel like I am getting some things done around the house that have been neglected for the last year.
Today off to look for a chair that fits in my Mom's space better at place she lives in. It was the first time since June 2013 I went four days without seeing her, and no guilt as I needed a break. Learning you can't take care of someone if you do not take care of you as well.
You all enjoy your weekend and try to do some small thing to make you smile.
