Just Keep Swimming


Wednesday, July 31, 2013

I'm not in a flare. I'm not pain-free. My fibro is manageable.

I didn't sleep well last night but I did sleep. And I got a short nap in this afternoon.

I'm sticking to my no-nightshade diet mostly because I'm not sure what else to do. I'm not positive that it helps me, since again, I'm not totally pain free, but I'm too chicken to risk another acid burning flare like my last one. I'm not tracking my food or measuring or anything else like that right now because just cooking nutritious whole foods from scratch takes up all my time and energy.

The Y is closed this week for renovations. I'm trying to work every evening in the yard. One of my neighbors came over last night while I was working. He looked over my waist high weeds with obvious displeasure. I told him "My health has been a problem lately. That's why things are like this." He told me that he could get me a hoe. I laughed and told him that I had a hoe but I had to choose my tools based on what my body could handle at the time. He offered me a hoe again. His wife took him to task in Chinese. I don't know how she was taking him to task about specifically since I couldn't understand what she was saying but I know that tone!

I am trying to just work as I can on my daily to-do list. I feel like I am juggling balls and am dropping most of them. But I can't help that. So I just keep trying to work as I can.

I don't know what the point of all of this is: maybe, Just Keep Swimming?

    Agree---we can only do what our body will allow us to do in one day. Some days go better than others, keep trying regardless of the amount every day when we can. You and I both know that there are days your body just needs rest, rest, rest---then on those days we do little and don't need to feel guilty. We need to take care of ourself, in order to help our families. It sounds like your DD is helping you, and thats great.
By the way--how is your son doing with the allergies?
