And the crises continue
Sunday, October 14, 2012      4 comments

Went to the ER last night. My bp has been all over the place despite taking my prescribed medicine. Yesterday after doing some light cleaning I was having chest pain and my lips were numb and tingly. My heart and kidneys are working perfectly... Read more
Going Gluten Free

My new naturopathic doctor has asked me to go gluten free. I have some reservations about the diet as a cure for my problems since I've been tested before for gluten intolerance etc. and it was all negative and because I've gone gluten free bef... Read more
I Wish that My Health Would Stop Being a Drama Queen
Friday, October 12, 2012      4 comments

My blood pressure is spiking and falling. I feel great when it falls. Horrible when it spikes. My pain is playing peek-a-boo - mostly peek. After the 3rd worst flare in 20 years, I thought I was all over it for now. Things went back to a du... Read more
Misc. Health Stuff
Thursday, October 11, 2012      1 comments

I went to see my new doctor yesterday. The hour long appointment went over and stretched to 1 hour and 45 min. I'm glad that I had decided to have my 10 year old visit a friend instead of waiting for me in the waiting room. The new Dr. was ea... Read more
Going over my Health History
Tuesday, October 09, 2012      3 comments

I've been going over my health history as I've been filling out oodles of papers for my doctor's appointment tomorrow. It is nice to see that even though I'm having a hard time with pain right now, I really have come a long way in the last 3 y... Read more
Some Praises in the midst of the Pain
Monday, October 08, 2012      1 comments

1. Yesterday was a super long day. We left for church at 9 am and got home at 7:10 pm. (Which is not the actual praise - it's how the day went that is the praise). I taught the teens -with absolutely no preparation except for reading the passa... Read more
It's the Little Things
Saturday, October 06, 2012      2 comments

Sometimes little blessings can mean so much. Today - The people at the front desk at the Y gave me a new lock free of charge because I'm there so much and my dd10 volunteers so much of her time here. This helps a lot because it saves... Read more
Changing Plans
Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

I don't know what is happening to my body. It seems a lot more intense than my normal flares. All I know is that my arms and legs and feet hurt so badly that if I could get it, morphine sounds good about now. It is excruciating to walk. I ha... Read more
Naptime
Thursday, October 04, 2012      0 comments

I had a very difficult time making it to naptime today. In fact, I had dd continue working on the end of school while I napped because I couldn't keep upright anymore. This was because I slept very poorly last night. I have a difficult ... Read more
So Frustrated
Tuesday, October 02, 2012      4 comments

I stopped a riot last night. OK - not really a riot. But cardio kickboxing is on the schedule for Monday night. Our regular instructor moved out of state two weeks ago. Our instructor last week did interval training instead of kickboxing last we... Read more
October Goals
Monday, October 01, 2012      0 comments

My October goals are the exactly the same as my September goals, which are pretty much exactly the same as my August goals were. I'm exercising at my maximum. I'm eating well. Not perfect but well. I did add a green smoothie back in... Read more
My Ankles
Sunday, September 30, 2012      2 comments

I think the little bones in my feet and ankles are out of alignment. Most of the time I can walk and stand pain free but every now and then (like every 5 minutes or so) I will step a "wrong" way or even while standing my weight will shift slight... Read more
Wow, I want to be like that in 14 years
Saturday, September 29, 2012      5 comments

One of my Zumba instructors told me that she is 62. Wow! I knew she was older than I am but I thought it was only about 5 or 6 years. Instead, she's 14 years older than I am. She is so fit and so energetic! Oh, she's not as energetic as the... Read more
Getting my Mojo Back
Saturday, September 29, 2012      3 comments

Life's stresses, fatigue and pain were draining me of all joy. For some reason that is turning around right now. I'm getting my mojo back. Last night and tonight I danced up a storm and found myself smiling again.... Read more
The Advantage of Youth
Friday, September 28, 2012      1 comments

We had a sub tonight in Zumba. I love this sub. She is young and vibrant. She is just bursting with sunshine and energy and makes me smile. I love our normal instructors too. They are very good. But they are my age. They can't keep up a h... Read more
