Movin On Up!!!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Well, I finally got a home and things are looking up more everyday. The week before we moved the Dr. put me on a new pill " Tramadol" and it has worked wonders for my constant pain. I have actually been doing dishes, unpacking and cooking all by myself which as many of you know is a big step up. I was so worried that I would be bed bound soon. This pill has helped me in ways I can't begin to describe. I am so grateful for a home of my own, ease of movements & my new found independence that I have just been working as much as possible. Don't get me wrong, it is hard and it has been a long time since I was tired at the end of the day and not just bored but man oh man it is living again. I feel like I have a whole new life now. I still have constant pain but it is not unbearable to move with as before and if I happen to forget a dose I pay, but all in all it is amazing the changes in myself. I actually feel pride in my home again. I feel pride in myself. Now I can shower daily instead of just once every two weeks, with daily some sponge baths in between. If I could just get into keeping better track of my intake of food and doing daily exercises and then recording them along with doing my journal daily I would really be on track! For now I am just really happy with the changes I am making and not beating myself up for what I am not doing, I know it will come in time. Thank you to all of you who support me and keep me in your hearts it means more than I can ever say. Blessings to all.

    I am so happy for you. When you have pain those things you are doing seem like mountains. You are climbing them one at a time! Way to go!!

    You are so right, right now its great what you can do and in time you will add the other things. Glad to hear you are doing better on new meds, being in pain is draining. Keep up the good work.

    The more you are able to do with less pain the more you will be able to build upon what you already do. I used to have to hold on to the walls to get up to the MD office after being dropped off right at the curb. Now I can drive myself, park semi-far and walk all the way without huffing and puffing.
    It takes time to build some stamina, but you can get your independence back in your own hands. Just keep moving forward.
