Despite not near enough sleep and poor quality I had a good day untill around 6. DD, hubby and I went shopping, then came here and dd and I went down and got dad to sort through a bit more. She can get right at him and he doesnt say boo. lol
Then after supper we went back out to find something for Thomas and Eva, we are so late this year. So going over tomorrow for a while. While at the store, I had 3 real balance issues, and hubby had to catch me once and hold my hand to help me walk. My back and foot were really hurting and when w were standing in line I did as he said a fancy 2 step. Man... don't like this but guess nothing to do about it.
So as soon as I write this, turn off puter i am going to bed, it is just after 10. Allready in pain but hoping that being so tired will just let me sleep. lol NIGHT All
happy Easter to my other side of the world buddies!

OH what a night... pain and not able to sleep. Fit bit says 5hr 13 mins hrs but in bed over 7. yea that feels about right. Then at 6:30 Allie starts whining, she wants out she is not even up here but at the door. So I say lay down, hubby hears me says OH I think I forgot to put her out last night. So I go to get up, he says I will I said no cos you will let her pee and want her to come in. I knw she always does both but takes a bit and walks a bit. Then she will only cry to go back out. So I walk her a bit then we come home and I say you are not getting fed early. It was painful to walk this am, but thought going to lay in bed so she realizes. So I get bck in bed, no pain... Ahhhhhhhhh relax, she starts whining, hubby starts sighing so I get up again.
Hence the start with a rotten mood, pain, pissed off and tired.
Sun is shining, Von was on line so had a chat, and I have my tea. I will be fine, will nap this afternoon I hope. I just am not good when I don't get 7 hrs sleep and when I am sore it is worse as anyone would know.
So spent some time on the rv escapees forum last eve, lots of idea, and info and opinions on evryting rv. Was reading about fulltiming and then read an article on a family with 12 kids!!! all in one rv motorhome fulltime! OMG can't even imagine. lol And there are days I wonder if we won't kill each other. Th first plan was to get a 5th wheel with a spare room so we could use that for craft or tv, but then you lose in other areas. So will see how this goes when the time comes. We got talkign after I read about storing stuff vs selling it all ( other than ablums, and special stuff that you could store at one of your kids ect cos ctorage units are not cheap). I started thinking and there is not a lot I couldnt get rid of. But uMur said we could just rent a smaller one, true. Anwyay l love to purge adn get rid of stuff the total opposite of dd who could be a hoarder. lol
Glad to day si sunny hope it warms up some. Anna dil family has an annual easter egg hunt at one of her aunts for the kids so they will be going to that. Thomas will love it this year lol
We have no plans for anything at all, as I cant eat ham cos of sugar, and such we didnt get anytthing special. I guess I could buy a roast today and get dad to come up he loves a roast beef dinner. will see.
okay off to put together my stool for kitchen. been in box for months, I have decided I am going to do it. I want the cardboard out to curb for garbage on monday. perhaps a bbq will get put together today....
Cya later having toast and tea OMG TOAST lol 3 days and always hungry, craving sweets ( havent had any) and up a lb. sigh what bread can do. cya

Well have got a few things on my list done and a few more to do. I turned on puter to check if my library book was in yet. Oh well not like I hve to have it right now, it is gf cookbook. but figure I may stay wheat free anyway I really do believe dr davis and the wheat belly. LOL saying that i do love the smell and taste of my first bread in 5.5 wks OMG only thing that could be better is butter on it, but no dairy. lol
Have had a great day pain wise, no rhyme nor reason to this pain. Have paced myself, done wat I wanted and will get more done. Off here now and heading upstairs to get my dresser cleared off.

As those that are my buddies that read here often know, thinking anything for me is not always good !LOL
Okay I have slept maybe 5 hrs, my back ached so bad no matter how I laid and then my arm started itching like crazy again, and of course this was all interspersed with hot flashes.
Here we go - I was going to spark mail the ones that may be interested in this but then thought lol a spark stranger may read it and who knows have something to say.
I am not happy that my GP wants the celiac test, I don't mind that other than to get a true reading you have to be on gluten and I have done so well at doing wht the naturopath has suggested. To me had I been sensitive to gluten this 6 wks would have at least alleviated some of that itching. But I will do it to rule this out.
Now hear me out, sometimes we know our bodies sometimes we don't. But for at least since 1988 or so I have wondered if I had the start of MS. ( I tell myself not to think that cosd they you think what you think can happen) but I have never had good balance, I have pins and needles, I can't think off the top of my head whatelse I came up with. This thought came and went for while then back etc. 2 years ago when I started working with the young girl that had MS ( some may remember me mentioning her, super smart, university grad, own biz and diagnosed with ms at 29 ( she is now in a nursing home at 33), anyway a few times when work was done and I asked her how did you first find out, as she would say things I said wow.... and thought yes , yes, yes. NO NO NO. then when my knee would get bad and my balance etc would be bad, she would look at me and say I worry about you. You have become like a mum and I don't like your balance etc. Anway didnt think anymore of it til today.
I was awake most of the night, lots of thoughts going through my head ( finish dads floor as someone from vets is coming to see if he needs more help etc.), get this dang house tidy getting so sick fo this clutter, why is my arm itching, what has made my body get this much worse in the past 3 months, LOL I had a busy night no wonder I didnt' sleep.
So awhile back I asked my dr could I have MS, he said no he didnt think so, not enough conclusive symptoms. Okay as I dont' want it and certainly dont want to "wish" it on myself.
This am after again thinking the celiac thing isnt sitting right with me ( yes I may be gf sesitive and even celiac but dont think that is my arm) so I googled ( oh yea ) and said does an itch come with ms... WELL
this is from an MS forum
Does anyone have itching as a symptom? Is there anything that I can do to relieve it?
I had my 3rd MS flare at the end of October. Along with severe numbness, my right arm has been itching. I scratched my arm raw when it was numb and couldn't tell how hard I was scratching. The numbness has mostly gone away, but the itching hasn't. It's driving me nuts! Any advice or tips would be appreciated.
Dysesthetic itching was my first abnormal sensation, and occurred for several years before my diagnosis. It is neurological and benedryl is useless for this type of itch. No rash, nothing apparent on my skin, just intense itching that would come and go! It was awful and the only thing I could do was "freeze" the area with ice until it passed back then. My primary dr. was clueless, but the neurologist knew immediately what it was.
Koko's link explains this symptom and different medications prescribed for it. I take Neurontin (generic is Gabapentin) for this and it helps calm my intense itching. Thank goodness for meds ... I'd have gone crazy by now without them.
There were many more on there too... sad to think tha gabapentin is the help cos I can't take that family of drugs much... that was the one that made me loopy and my eyes go nuts.
I will do the darn eating gluten and try very hard to get away from sugar whhile doing it, thanks to Anjays-journey who has travelled this road, I have help in my corner. but will be saving this and taking it to the GP too. it has a name and sounds exactly like what is happening to my arm. So not saying MS but could have this dysthetic itching cos of just nerve issues from the sciatica. But MS and nerve issues thats what it is a nerve disease.
So now I am not going to sit and fret over if I have MS or not, I am not going to wish this upon myself. Today even though I haven't slept much I feel okay so now that this is done, my emails are checked, I am going to go tidy the kitchen. later will go to dd to get some yeast, got my bread machine back yesterday from here but forgot the yeast. have a recipe for ww, honey bread so that is what i will make.
HUGs and off I go, may end up napping later but hey maybe thats it short naps that don't hurt to lay that long.
I feel energized how dont know but hey going to get some stuff done today, perhaps that will put a tiny little weee spark under hubby!??
Okay back for sec, the first site I went to had 8 things that are not first thought of as ms symptoms. i just did the itch and came and blogged so went to the next one figured read these 8 then go do kitchen. OMG the next one is unexplained hearing loss, and when I mentioned I hd to get another hearing aid for the other ea now he said did they say why... no just tha my hearing had gone down. whew. wow. okay number 6 is difficulty swallowing... yea had that but not often severe. first one you often see is my fingers are numb. well that is what started it back in the 80s they were at night so numb and I would hit them on the bed and not feel a thing. think I will be bringing this with me to the dr and saying what do you think. sigh oh well not worrying which is diff for me. will show hubby see what he says.
Okay off to save this and then get stuff done. cya
