Today I am thankful for other positive role models who help lift me up when I have been so down lately.
I have had some health issues over the past few months and am trying with all that I have within myself to pick myself up and deal with "life"
After having a round of blood work and x-rays done by my rheumatologist I have received the results....I have not yet been diagnosed with Lupus or MCTD(mixed connective tissue disease) but my RNP antibodies are still elevated as well as my muscle enzyme(CPK)is mildly elevated so I will continue to take meds for inflamation and a non narcotic med for the pain for the next 3 months then re eveuate for whatever is going on with my body.I also had an annual check up this past week and am waiting on the bloodwork for hormone and sugar test to come in.
I turned 43 in March and know that I am still to young to feel this old...LOL. So....with that being said I Will continue to get to the bottom of this and while trying to do so....do whatever is neccessary to fight for my health!
I have all the equiptment to exercise in my bonus room....a treadmill,stationary bike,an ellptical, mini trampoline, an ab circle and ab lounger....So whats the problem????
As stated in my last blog I simply have not had the energy to exercise but have been despertly seeking the motivation to get healthy again(I'll be happy with just feeling better) for now.
My husband joined the gym about 4 months ago and said that this is better for him and suggested I join also.It would only be 20.00 more dollars than we pay now so.....In hopes of feeling better I am going to join tomarrow after work.I still hurt in my hips and back but will slowly make myself do cardio and a little strength exercise for the joints in pain. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
