I am determined

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

to make today a great day. The sun is out, it is cold but not frigid and I am going to get through this headache and body tightness.

I have been getting so tight and stiff at night and not sleeping well cos of it. I also have noticed way way more pain in my thumb joints ( guess where your thumb and hands join lol) so much so that I an barely pick up light things at times. Getting my bra and pulling up my socks is so bad. My socks are getting desperate cos between my socks and my back so sore in am, it is really hard.

So back to square 1. I have not been eating well since back when Lisa and I had that weekend, so may as well say since Christmas really. More odd days of good eating than any continuous times. Today will be really taking care and noting what I am eating. I have still been writing and noting my days but have to figure this out. I will eat what I am and really keep track for few days then going to have to start gf again. I just don't know if it was that as has only gotten bad the past week or so.

Ironically haven't had any belly pain in while. Last time I had eaten a fair bit of raw veggies with hummus. Other than that I figure it is eggs.

This am I woke with a slight headache and my right hand so asleep it felt like total dull pins and needles. As I woke it took a while for my hand to wak and my headache got much worse. Got up dressed, and went down stairs to get ready to take allie out. My head hurt so bad, my hands and back made getting my boots on a painful chore that I started crying. Allie bless her started crying nad licking my hands and face. We went for our walk and the first one of the day is usually good for me, unless she is way to excited. So once I moved a bit, I stood and let the sun shine while she sniffed, thanked God that I can walk, and move no matter how slow or painful. ( lol hard to bend to pick up after her! LOL) we went for over 2,000 steps and when we got back my body moved a bit better. I still have headache but not as severe.

Went down to dads to put his socks on and he said are we going to go out for breakfast today( I had suggested today as he had asked while back) I said oh dad I am so so sore today but how about tomorrow. I told him that I need to go to chiro but have to get the money as they dont direct bill our insurance. So he said use the money in our savings. I hate using or asking for his money. He says it is ours but never will I use it without asking it isnt mine to me till he is gone it is his. Have seen too much of "borrowing" family money with the people I took care of and I won't do that.
So anyway going to call chiro and get back on that stretching machine again. I did feel better when doing that.
Okay best get this day going along, Hubby going to have shower after Kelly and Micheal then go to Thomas and Evas for a visit and return blanket. Then to the bank, and store.
Took the tylenol and still not much better. Darn.........

HUGS all hope you have a great day all!

    This is going to sound cheesy- But an object in motion tends to stay in motion. Those initial movements first thing in the morning I have always felt were the hardest. It sounds to me like you're not one to let your pain dictate your life. That is incredible and inspiring! Pain is so demanding. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavor to get healthy and stay that way. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
