One week back; another one forward

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Today is Saturday. It's been a VERY busy week...but a lot of it was social and fun. With a few MD appointments in the fray. I seem to have gone up several levels in the battle against pain. Pain has escalated and is beating the snot out me every morning now. It's always been worse in the AM but seriously...there should be some kind of nomenclature to distinguish pain from PAIN!!!!

It's all I can do not to cry in the morning now. I move every joint...slowly. carefully...and every single one hurts indescribably. It's just not fair. It just really sucks.
But that's the way it's been for the past three mornings. When it finally ramps down a bit my neck, hands and SI joints and my shoulders remain as uber painful. I guess I'm paying for this past week. I think I will stay in bed today as next week looks fairly busy also. I have my Dragon here I really need to use it whether my husband likes the noise 0r not. My arm hurts too much to type anymore.

on Monday I'm having an MRI done on my neck. I know what they will find will be bad. My last MRI on back in 2006 shocked all my doctors about how bad the damage was and it's gotten a lot worse, believe me. it's not that they can operate or anything...maybe they can see how they can best approach it with the needle to give it an injection. The next Friday I have the ophthalmologist. It should be another interesting vision has changed radically. I'm afraid that one of these diseases has caught up with them (my eyes).

I really feel a need to rest today. Although this last week has been fun at some times it exhausted me too. So if I'm going to make it to sermon tomorrow,I'm going to have to rest today it will be hard because my family's home and will need me for making lunch and dinner and to do the dishes. Now that may not sound like a lot for you but it really is more than I can handle. I'm going to have to put my foot down. I will ask them to do what they can for themselves. it won't work but that's won't stop me from trying.

Wish you all a wonderful weekend and make it the start of a wonderful week.

    Cyn darling .. You are really going to have to make a stand .. There is no earthly reason why your family cannot cook for themselves .. If you were not there, they would have to cook ..
    It's time you took a stand.. Just tell them .. You are just to sore to be cooking ..
    Love you xxSusie xx emoticon emoticon

    So very sorry your disease(s) have gone crazy. Can't even begin to imagine your P. A. I. N. So glad the Dragon is working for you to communicate.
    The idea of cauterizing your nerve bundles to ease the pain sounds interesting, but with one caveat. They worry about diabetics who lose their nerve feelings because then they no longer have pain signals to tell them something is wrong and don't notice their toe is rubbing until its gangrenous and ends up getting amputated, etc.,
    Praying you are wrong and there is nothing wrong with your eyes!!
    Second that -the family can do for themselves -they aren't liking what you prepare anyway!!
    Sending gentle hugs, soothing thoughts and wishes for the best possible outcomes...

    i'm so sorry you are in such pain. RA does suck, no doubt about it. I think resting and asking for help are great ideas.
    My mother had a procedure for neck pain where the doc put a needle in and administered electricity, no medication, to pain nerves in her neck. It cauterized and destroyed the pain nerves so that though her neck was just as bad, the pain signals didn't go to her brain, so pain-free for a year until the nerves regenerated. Good luck with your MRI and treatment options. God bless you.

    Sorry to hear that your pain has amped up. Who knew it could get any worse. Stay in bed today and tomorrow and make your family fend for themselves. They're adults, too.

    It is okay to say you need them to step up and help....and they should be more than willing to do don't feel bad that you have to slow down and take care of yourself!!
    Sorry that you are in such pain...I can't even imagine how much you are hurting...
    prayers for a pleasant day!!
