Painful Days

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Haven't been on much for a couple of weeks......been in too much pain...still am, but rebelling against it. So, I'm back on SP, even if I can hold on perfectly (even I need to remember that it's "progress, not perfection"). I've allowed that pain to give me the excuse to binge. I may not have been able to cook much or prepare foods myself, but I can choose the healthier, best choice for me. (Darn binge monster-----he's a big liar, telling me it'll all be better with pizza or ice cream....of course, I don't have to so readily believe him, either). emoticon

So, here I am, again! My joints are swollen and very painful...I can't do much for exercise (except for gentle stretching and ROM exercises), and I'm struggling with my food intake. But, I am here, ....not isolating...and asking for and getting the support I need. Thank you, sparkpeople.

    Thanks for the comments, guys. Joints are still swollen, I'm still struggling with binge-monster, and now our only transportation is requiring some major repairs for which we have no major cash-flow (a new alternator, hub bearing, battery). Just replaced the tires. I won't ask what else could go....because I know I'll get an answer. But, I thank you, my friends for your support.....Ya'll are crown jewels.

    one giant hug from me to you....don't let it get you down.....you can overrule it....that dratted ugly binge monster....I know him well.....he hides and when he thinks no one else can see, he darts out with a piece of chocolate cake or ice cream....yeah, I know him well.....but we will not let him get the best of us....we are more powerful than he is....and we will do this...... emoticon emoticon
