Gosh life can sometimes get in the way of exercising... got diagnosed recently with fibromayalgia. Apparently went through a flare which knocked the stuffing out of me, after a year of being treated with dementia, turns out my stepfather did not have dementia but rather cirrhosis and encephalopathy. He landed in hospital a week before my husband and I went to Mexico (with my husband's sister and brother in law), my stepfather died the day we got back, my stepsibs have caused all manner of grief for my mom in the meantime but it seems to have settled down somewhat thank goodness. She lives 2 hrs away so it's hard for us to get there frequently but we try to go as often as we can and I call every day.. My daughter had a hysterectomy and I had a minor procedure done and now...well I'm ready for some stability in my life right about now. I have a head cold now after managing to stay healthy throughout the worst of the winter.. and frankly I'm sick to death of snow... sigh.
On the brighter side.. the pain is getting better.. I tried Lyrica but it didn't do much so I stopped using it. I'm exercising and trying to cut the salt out as it seems to cause pain and so far, while the pain is not perfect, it's much better and I don't take as many pain killers.
I have many blessings to be grateful for and I count them every day. IN spite of the craziness over the last few months, life is good and getting better all the time. It's one day closer to retirement!.. lol (4 yrs away still... it's going to be a lot of counting.. lol).
Have a great day all
