Oh I am so sad for any that are in pain daily

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

This past month or so, my pain had gone from nill ( 2 days) to 3-5 to weell over 10. whew. When I went to chiro a few months back and he did 2 treatments I didnt fare well. Yesterday I went to his wife also chiro and she used this little manipulator gun thing and asked me first I said I don't know, Jason told you last time not to but I don't know about this time. So she did, felt okay. Got home was not bad, took dad to do his taxes so so. Then 8 pm or so starting to hurt, woke at 2:15 said to hubby are you coming to bed soon, yes please bring the ice up. So still took long while to get comfy. if there was over 10 in pain scale be a 18 for sure.
So fell asleep and allie woke me at 6:25 slowwwwwwww and short even without ice etc but too bad.
Lesson learned no more chiro till after knee surg. or till less inflamed. I told him the chiro, that I am not go back, as seems if they put my back in aligment, it make s my knee so sore( have my big off loading brace on today) but last night was both. This am after our walk it is my butt cheek for sure but feels deeep intense pain not the sharp shooting pain I had with sciatica on the othter side. I still will say this pain isn't as bad as last years sciatica so keep telling myself that and that I can still walk, move, rest to some degree... so thankful for that measure of relief. but this is totally why I am scared to get my knee done, my back is so bad. So hopefully my knee will help my back.
I go to physio for my knee and hamstring on thurs. I am wondering if that is part of this, my knee is not bending, hamsstring tight which makes my butt tight, hence pulls baack, and knee. yesterday she got me to lay on my belly and my R leg woldnt' lay on the table for about an inch, she said oh yea that is tight.
Anyway........ such is my story and now let's see. I am doing well otherwise, mind is doing okay lol we are getting dad really sorted out and looking more like an apt. not just a stopping point lol Hubby got the stereo, the new smoke detectors, and more shelves up. He also helped him sort more stuff. I got some stuff up on shelves a box of decorations undone and up. Today more of the same, only 3 boxes of puter stuff but that can be sorted and put away ow that the stereo is off those shelves. Then just a tidy on thur eve and we are done till he can get his stuff out to cut trim etc. then door frames, baseboard and closet doors thats it.
Today, depends how well I move, but be down there for some and thats about it, unless my flying apron is at the library, taking a long time considering I was first, but they said the person hasn't returned it. I did get 3 gluten free books from library yesterday, one is 1,000 recipes and had to get hubby to carry it lol
Okay off to do a bit more, stood to do some of this sat for some. I will survive and come out of this feeling fine later, no lasting effects but know I will be cancelling the apt for next week. I just have to see how close I am to my 500 dollar cut off on my insurance, cos then can send the balances that my insurnace hasn't paid to hubby's but have to spend it all first. lol they always get you !!!
talk later I it will be a more positive blog I promise!!! HUGS thanks for always listening and helping me buddies. I know there are more here that are in such worse pain and problems than I and I wish them relief in which ever ways they need.

    so sorry to hear about more pain you are having but you have a fighting spirit and I think although at times a drag Allie is a big help as it gives you a reason to walk

    I have always heard good things about chiros but it apparently does not work for everyone.

I need to see if our library has any gluten free cookbooks.

Your dad's place is really coming along.

Keep positive hun.
I have a new saying; It's just a bad day, not a bad life, I've seen you eyes- you were born to fight.

    So sorry for all your pain. Admire your good attitude. That attitude is likely to help you find the cure you need. Sometimes it is trial and error on figuring it out. You are so right to be thankful that you are not a chronic pain person. My year with pain also made me very, very thankful and less likely to judge others, not knowing what they are going through. Take care. Best wishes for repaired and recovered knees. May that help the back and all your other aches and pains. HUGS. -Marsha

Change and how you think of it.

Tuesday, April 09, 2013



So very true and something many of us so often forget.

I am glad I saw this on FB today. I am going to get a canvas and make some craft with that saying so I never forget it. I want to embrace it.

With all the pain and such I have been having and wondering why my body has gotten so much worse in past 4 -6 months, I have to learn to adjust and adapt - hence change.

I am so glad I have my physio apointment for my hamstring/knee issue this week and am going to be relentless in asking her to help me with a exercise routine for my back also. Not just squeeze your core muscles. Also thanks to a new spark friend, I have even more respect for pre surgery knee exercises! Thanks to KNIEPS who did so well after surgery but got strong before. And also stressed being conscientious about after surgery exercises too. That is what is scaring me but not cos of the knee but my back. So will be pursuing what I can do for it also.

And also this fiasco with adding wheat back into my diet has been really enlightening. Even if I don't have gluten sensitivity I do know it makes me like an addict. total carb addiction again. So when I went to the naturopath for refills, she saw me at the desk and brought me in for few secs. I told her what and how much I am eating and how I felt and she said continue eating like that till friday and then go get your blood done and back on track. So friday I will do that and probably get my foot xray at the same time.
So going back to the quote, I am willing to learn and explore new eating habits, as hard as I am finding it I personally know someone that is a huge inspiration in that area!!! thanks to another sparker Anjays-Journey who has had huge challenges in the food land LOL

For today, my pain is better, still there in my back and knees and strange feel like I was punched in my sides of my hips ( started at the store yesterday), but so far okay. and sun is out. So I am going downstairs and going to try to tidy the area that I put evrything the other day as dads worker comes and needs to get to the washer. lol
Then will try to frame some stuff for him and then off to chiro.

HUGS and have a super day and EMBRACE CHANGE FOR THE GOOD and if we don't try change we will never know what could be.

OH ps: Apple cinnamon crockpot oatmeal is awesome , just like a dessert for breakfast and no sugar in it!! YUM! lol
Cya

Not a great start to Monday

Monday, April 08, 2013

So it can only get better!!! One thing that is surprising me is that my thumbs hurt enough to barely be able to type. MAN!!!
Had a good day yesterday, didn't do a ton even though it may have sounded like it so I know I didn't over do it so that isn't the pain cause. Woke this am at 5 in +10 pain R waist side, butt were so sore, no matter how I laid. Got up after hearing allie just before 6:30 and barely got my lower half dressed, had to turn bra around to hook. Though man what is all this intense pain from. Is the weather to change back to winter LOL it is dull and damp today.
Got allie out, sllllllllllllllooow walk and not too far she was good today thank heavens. Whew.

So yesterday am, I didnt remember to take my pills to the restaurant and ddint take them when we got home. So down 2 glucosamine MsM, and 2 curcumin. Also forgot to go on sat to get more magnesium so not as many of those. I wish I had only forgotten 1 type of pill so I could swe what is helping. Anyway thinking that is what it is. Off to get more mag. this am.
can'tget over how bad my thumbs are, and my back and knee when I stand up or move. sitting right now is okay but know I wont be able to get up.

Anyway........ today is help dad day, I will be doing minimal stuff but we have to get more tidy adn boxes done. I will shred for a bit then do a bit more.
Okay have to leave here for while and ice my thumbs. HUGS and will be back with a better update than this!!!

    You should try some icy hot on that back, I know I moved a certain way last week and I felt a pull and put the icy hot on and then (have a mattress pad in the bed cause its so cold and who can afford oil hahaha) I cranked the bed to high and I could move a little better the next day.
I hope your feeling better tomorrow, there's just something about Mondays! emoticon

    I so relate to the "where did THIS pain come from?" syndrome! Pay attention to what your body is telling you! I am having to be very patient and let my body tell me when it is ready to go farther and do more. Thanks for your encouragement!

Something to think about

Saturday, April 06, 2013




saw this and thought YES !!! we all have good days but we so often remember the bad. While cleaning I found small books that hubby and I had written grattiudes in when he was having his bad depression. Was neat, hey mur did you know that april 3 2005 you were happy that....... lol some were plain others were sort of special.

So hugs for all of us, but for my friends that are having a hard time right now. There is always someone having a worse time and always will be a brighter day ahead.

HUGS emoticon

Like Morticaaddams I've learned to appreciate the little things, it's so easy (too easy) to focus on the negative emoticon


Great blog!

    Yes it's true, even though I was in pain today I pushed myself to go out and I did enjoy just being out of the house with my boys and something as simple as seeing 20 turtles in a store made me feel 5 yrs old, my husband kept saying okay you wanna go now? and I kept saying no I'm enjoying the turtles hahahaha
I hope you had a pain free day!

Sunny sat

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Sunny but cold a few snow flurries but nothing stayed! whew. Had a good day, dd and I went to a semi craft fair/enterpenuer show - was good. Guess I didnt' win anything as noone called. LOL Oh well. sigh.
I am debating I was reading mostmoms blog about her streak and thought, hmm I should start a streak then remembered I had a streak of walking allie... well haven't missed a day but would have to go back to see what day we got her or when my last day I posted was. lol well over 100 days as I go to that then. Or start a new streak?
We got Allie Oct 3rd! wow she was 8 months on the 3rd of this month. What a girl! LOL

We got dad a dresser for free. could use a painting on the top but he has dresser scarves he can put over it for now. He put it in the hallway and is going to put his military crests etc on the wall above. neat as they have been boxed for while. Will seem like his own little thing. Will help him get them up tomorrow.
The Vetrans people are coming friday at 9:30. so have a bit of stuff to do and organize. Should be interesting, he wants to see if thyey will give him a chair lift for the stairs and I am hoping they will pay or help with the outside walk for him to get up the side of the house, we have to chip away the stairs there as they are not to code and not the same size.. so be nice to have a bit of monetary help. they may as it is his access to his house.

Well off I go to get a bit done, and then go do my knee and back exercises. Have got my apointments for physio and massage for my knee and will be asking for help with back stuff. full week next week, chiro, physio take dad to library for his taxes ( they do them free for seniors).
Hope you all have a great eve, and that you all sleep well, and that I sleep longer than 5 hrs!!! argh.
hugs

    ugh on the flurries. Walking Allie has been a really good thing for you. Even when you are sick or in pain you are getting some exercise in.

It sounds like your dad is getting his place fixed up nicely.
