Cautiously Optimistic

Saturday, October 20, 2012      3 comments

Tonight at Zumba I was jumping and dancing with ease. I worked hard and am tired out now. But I didn't have the intense pain that I've had for the last month. I think the new prescription of potassium must be helping. I did notice that I hav... Read more

I'm a Gluten Free Drop-out

Wednesday, October 17, 2012      0 comments

I went back on gluten today. I was off of it for 1 week. It was too stressful trying to figure out how to be off of it when we were out and about. I have more than enough stress in my life and wasn't convinced that I needed to be gf anyway. Plus... Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
