The last few days have been hell !!!!!!!! still in pain but it's eased up a bit

Sunday, November 17, 2013

I started a slight pain in my right foot thinking it would last maybe a few hours I didn't think much of it as the weather has been yoyo-ing with the temps and fibro flare ups are common even when a slight wind blows for me. Right now it's pouring here so everything is flared up......
Okay but this is like day 5 now and I'm stuck in the recliner and even had to resort to using crutches yesterday ( no using them today as I might be more dangerous with them).
I have learned one thing I mean my hubby and son have always been here for me throughout all of my pain, but these past few days it's obvious that I'm really loved here.
My son running everytime I've called his name or if he hears me yelling in pain, rubbing my feet without being asked, making me things to eat instead of me doing it for him and always saying how he keeps wishing I'd feel better and saying I love you.
I've also learned a lot about myself.... I'm so not my dad, when I'd go to help him it was always expected of me with no appreciation , no thank you just criticism and everytime my son has come to my rescue whether it being getting me a drink , pills or making me something to eat the words thank you come so easy to me and yet they never came to my dads lips when I did anything for him only if my brothers did.
I'm always saying to my son I'm sorry I have to call you and he says mom your in a lot of pain I want you to call me instead of hurting yourself. He may never realize how proud I am to be his mom or how him getting me a simple drink makes me feel so lucky he's my son.
Today I'm still hurting but walking around a little better then I have and so I thought I'd give hubby a break from cooking I made dinner so he won't have to when he comes home from his part time job. I'm more sore then I was but I'm sick of sitting, I have been flexing my foot (this is the foot I've broken twice when I couldn't feel that foot in the beginning of lyme, this is also the foot that I had blood poison in as a child because of a pair of red shoes my mother bought me, had the redline going up the leg and everything).
This pain usually doesn't last this long but it certainly has last 3 days before, I thank all of my sparkfriends for their prayers!
I've been watching so many shows about the Kennedy's hahaha I'm going to be an authority after this weekend.
Hope everyone is able to enjoy their day!

    It's great you have so much support. It's nice to see you've raised your children right when they are there when needed the most.

    My DH and I have learned much in the past week and know what we'd like to be like when we are older. Especially for our children's sake.

    Hang in there. I know about chronic pain, and it's pretty exhausting. So glad your family is so supportive.
