Well, I finally got a home and things are looking up more everyday. The week before we moved the Dr. put me on a new pill " Tramadol" and it has worked wonders for my constant pain. I have actually been doing dishes, unpacking and cooking all by myself which as many of you know is a big step up. I was so worried that I would be bed bound soon. This pill has helped me in ways I can't begin to describe. I am so grateful for a home of my own, ease of movements & my new found independence that I have just been working as much as possible. Don't get me wrong, it is hard and it has been a long time since I was tired at the end of the day and not just bored but man oh man it is living again. I feel like I have a whole new life now. I still have constant pain but it is not unbearable to move with as before and if I happen to forget a dose I pay, but all in all it is amazing the changes in myself. I actually feel pride in my home again. I feel pride in myself. Now I can shower daily instead of just once every two weeks, with daily some sponge baths in between. If I could just get into keeping better track of my intake of food and doing daily exercises and then recording them along with doing my journal daily I would really be on track! For now I am just really happy with the changes I am making and not beating myself up for what I am not doing, I know it will come in time. Thank you to all of you who support me and keep me in your hearts it means more than I can ever say. Blessings to all.
