Ready, set, GO GET IT!
Sunday, March 24, 2019
Well I'm doing good still. I've been exercising more and trying to incorporate strength training into my routine but it's been difficult. The time change didn't help lol! But this week I'm fired up for it! My motivation is high and I am determined to get stronger! I'm down to 116.8 pounds but I probably went up over the weekend. Wild birthday party for my friend Deb, drank a bit too much and had biscuits and sausage gravy for dinner, it was a blast and she was so happy that Shawn and I showed up!!
Shawn and I are doing great! He's been so much more understanding of my chronic illnesses and not telling me to just get over it like before. I had a bit of a breakdown with him. We had a heart to heart talk and I think he finally gets it. It's a miracle!
My rheumatologist put me on a new pain medication and it's helping so much! It's a NSAIDS but it's a prescription medication and it's really cut back the pain. I also take CBD pills, 10 mg. 1 a day, and use CBD oil and cream on my joints. I've been doing that for awhile and it really seems to help.
She also is slowly putting me on a beta blocker to help with my horrible Raynuads syndrome. My fingers and toes have been turning pure white and sometimes purple for a about 2 months. I'm hoping the 5mg pills help. I start those on Thursday. She doesn't want to go any higher because I don't have high blood pressure.
The other great but bad thing is I started taking Aimovig! It's an automatic injection you do once a month and along with the botox I've only had 3 really bad migraines since February!!! The bad news is my Medicaid program won't pay for it!!! Grrr.... it helps so much, I've gotten my life back and I have to give it up next month and go back to 10-15 bad migraines a month. So frustrating!
I know this went on too long so I'll end here. Believe in yourself and anything can and will happen!! I love all my Spark friends! I'll try to post more often so my blogs aren't so long lol! Sparkcheers!!🤗🤗😁😁🤩🤩💪💪☕
