Having a slighlty better day...

Monday, September 29, 2014

So I was feeling pretty sore and exhausted with my last blog post. I had a really bad night that night, little sleep, lots of tossing and turning because I hurt so much even with Celebrex in my system that I couldn't find a position that was comfortable. I dragged through yesterday and didn't get out to the farm. Today I am starting to feel better. I am still tired and still sore, but not as bad as before. I am going to try to ride for a bit today but I know that if I push it too much, I will be back at square one.

One of my main issues is that I do tend to push myself too hard. Backing off when I need to is very difficult and frustrating to me. It drives me nuts when I can't do what I really want to because of my body giving out on me. I hate knowing that if I do something strenuous then I have to make sure I can rest for the next couple of days.

The rheumatologist doesn't really know what is going on with me. I have most of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis without the genetic markers. Other than the last blood test (which I forget the name for) they have all come back indicating that I have the disease. I have been taking medication for it for the last four months and I see him again in two weeks. I am hoping for some answers then.

So my goals for today are to get some insurance studying done, go for a walk, and try to get out to the farm to ride if I feel up to it tonight. I have to say, I am so lucky to have a Thoroughbred that takes care of me. I can haul her out of the field after not riding for three months and go for a trail ride. I love me some sane TB! emoticon
