As always when I set my mind to improving my health, body and overall happiness something steps in the way. I'm sure everyone experiences this, at least one time or another, in life.
Struggling with my cough and chest pains I went back to the Dr. today and found out that I've pulled my chest muscles and cracked a rib from all the coughing. I guess 6 weeks of coughing can do that - who knew.....
I've been taken out of work again for another week because it has become painful lifting up my arm, I'm right handed and all of this is on the right side of my body.
I push myself through pain. I'm a taurus (stubborn) and I have fibromyalgia so I mainly assume that its just pain and I need to move on with my day. This however became such a battle and was simply exhausting trying to get a full breath in that I have to listen and slow down for a bit.
I'm going to use the next few days of rest to focus on eating and planning things a little better. (Printing the challenges for BLC so I can actually wrap my head around what I'm doing) and just do what I can.
On a side note - I am making a cross stitch for my mother so this will give me lots of time to work on it. Its a huge piece, poster size and its of the wizard of oz. I'm so far spent 60 hours on it and I am nowhere near done. This will be the biggest piece I've ever tried to finish. I have until Sept 24 which is your 50th and I would love to have it done by then. I will get a picture posted of this shortly
