What a PAin in the Leg !!!!!

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

I am still plagued with Gout! It has been over 2 weeks now and I am so tired of all this, so I decided today that pain or not, cause it hurts no matter what I do, I am just going to do what I want and maybe that will help. I am getting nowhere with resting and elevating it. Tomorrow, BFF and my mom and I are going shopping for my birthday gift from my mom and then out to lunch. Friday is my BIG appt. with weightloss doctor so , although I am going to be sensible, I will have something I like to eat. Friday, DH is taking me to the doctor and then we will stop at the book store and get me my copy of Stop SMoking the Easy Way. I read and followed it about 3 years ago for quite a long time and then one day just, stupidly decided to smoke again. haven't been able to quit again since. I have long ago given that book away so need another copy. I actually ordered the book on line but it is going to take 3 to 5 weeks to come. I can either spend another $30 ( I only paid $18 online ) for the book no or spend 10X that much on cigarettes waiting for the other copy! I want to quit now and I am so ready so that is my Mother's Day gift. I think it's a great gift. By Mothers Day, DH and I will be following my new diet, whatever that entails so, although we are picking up lunch for my mom and us that day, we will be sure to get something that is okay for us to eat. My mom loves a hamburger and fries from McDonalds and we can get that at the drivethru, after we buy our own lunch. I am thinking wonderful thoughts and am excited about the direction my life is going. SO, goodbye smoking and fat, goodbye pain in the leg and Hello, to turning over a new leaf.

    It does take so long until the pain of gout goes away completely. Hang onto that resolve to get out there and find the book you need. Good luck!

    Sorry the gout has got you down and out still. It's a bear. You need to talk to your doctor about getting something for it. I wish I could remember the name of the meds the doc gave me for my bad flare but it escapes me. It truly helped and within a couple days I was better - it's something you only take until the pain eases up and then you stop it. Darn it's been so long since I had it. I take Allopurinal every night now. So my flare ups aren't too bad and keep cherry juice on hand. Good luck with everything that's going on with your smoking cessation and all the doctor appointments! Hope you can get good news all the way round. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry you are in pain. I am sure the Doctor can tell you what foods to avoid and what foods will help with gout.

I'm sorry I've been out of touch but I'm even sorrier that you are in so much discomfort. I really hope you get some relief soon emoticon

I think it's awesome that you are going to try to quit smoking again. It's costly both to your health and your wallet! I know you CAN do it!

I'm anxious to hear about your appointment with the weight loss doctor. I joined Weight Watchers (online) and am doing well WHEN I track! emoticon

Sending big hugs to you!
