Finally Friday!!!

Friday, January 17, 2014

I have been so achy and sore, tired all week, I just want to take a whole pain pill and climb under my flannel sheets and sleep. I have never had a whole week so consistently sore and achy. As previously blogged, I remember my first canoe trip when I worked at the hospital. I was 19 years old and went on my first canoe trip. It was 35 miles on the AuSable River From Grayling, MI downriver. A wonderful trip, BUT the next day I could have sawed off my arms, legs and chest muscles and felt better! Each knuckle, joint, even my elbows ache...

It has to be this bitter cold making my fibro, Reynauds and arthritis all react together, is all I can think of right now. I just want to sleep,, in fact, just woke up after falling asleep on the keyboard for 2 1/2 hours! I had to delete nine pages of "adklfjadklfjadklfjadklfjadklf
jadklfj" from my screen!
I know dad's house has a carton of Epsom salts and we are going to stop there tomorrow morning for the usual house check and bring it home. I think a nice tub-soak and decadent nap will help me.
I will force myself to get up and do some more cleaning...

    Yes, the cold and the extreme heat will do it for you.

    I can tell you I am loving Pat's rice bag she sent to me. I take it with me to bed every night.

    I'm sorry that you're so sore and achy. I've heard that epsom salts works well. /I hope you feel better soon.

    emoticon I have pain issues from the cancer that is in my bones, mixed in with arthritis, and mine is aggravated from the cold too, and also sinus headaches. It does seem that this winter in Michigan this year is especially cold, and I know at least in my area, December was colder than normal too.

    I hope the hot soak relieves the pain, that sounds heavenly right now!

    You really are tired if you fell asleep at the computer! 9 pages of ahfsdhfalkfnkewh! That is kind of hilarious. Your body is definitely trying to tell you something. Sleep well and I hope you feel much better! There is nothing like your own bed to feel safe, rested and happy!
