Getting the hang of SP again. DIdn’t overeat today. I’m still in the “back to logging” mode. Already adjusting intake as a result, but won’t seriously begin tweaking the foods until I settle in a little more. With my brain fog and stress react... Read more
Emerging from my cocoon, if not quarantine
Friday, May 15, 2020      13 comments

Have spent last 40 days eating my way thru the house, ordering not-so-great foods from Amazon and local markets, stressing over just about everything, and doing it all with my husband as willing co-conspirator. Think I’ve gained between # 5-10.... Read more

The road trip from Seattle to Northern Virginia was a kick! Tho there was major flooding both north and south of my route, I managed to avoid almost all the heavy weather. Amending my route kept me from visiting some family & friends Id planne... Read more
Much less pain today....

The side I got my shot on is almost pain free today. The other side can now "shine" and be felt. LOL! At least I'm mobile and feel much better. In 48 hours, my husband and I will be home again. Home in Alaska. Still not packed. Stil... Read more

So happy I got my pain shot today! The world is looking so much better now. Super sleepy tonight. Paperwork is still missing and we're coming down to the wire. Still leaving on Saturday. Med patch refill can only be done in-stat... Read more

Really let my health go the past few months. Past few, um, years. It's to the point it's triggering my disease, not to mention my diabetes, and I feel dreadful most days. Truly, truly, can't get off the couch, need a cane to cross the room dr... Read more

Nausea and pain today. No packing or planning or cleaning. Really, really hoping tomorrow is better! And yes, I plan to post photos and commentary during my trip, tho probably delayed by a day or two. That's for personal safety, since I'... Read more
Here's me, in perpetual "restart" mode
Sunday, April 28, 2019      5 comments

Spent last night and tonight getting my brain and plan back in line for restarting. It's a bigger than usual task, since I have a trip coming up very soon, and I'm dealing with worse than usual pain. Hubby and I are flying back home next... Read more
Feeling well again
Sunday, January 27, 2019      6 comments

Managed grocery shopping today. Hubby and I are recommitting to low carb, at least until we get our blood sugars back under good control. Carb dependency is awful, but it's such an easy way for quick energy and a mental pick-me-up. In o... Read more
Better today

Right, finally getting the reaction under control and no longer look like I'm either weirdly sunburned or have been smacked. Yeah for meds! So nice to be able to go up and down stairs without a cane. ... Read more
little more of a reaction
Sunday, January 20, 2019      5 comments

Had a bit of a delayed reaction to the pain shot last night. Happened last couple of times, as well. Started so slowly I didn't notice. By the time I did, I had a bright red rash across most of the right side of my body. Weird, I know. Itch... Read more
Better than "normal"!

Had my first pain shot since October yesterday. It was an uncomfortable experience (tho the doc and I laughed thru it) and I was sick after (stupidly forgot to take Benedryl). Work up this morning feeling amazing. Bopped down the two flights ... Read more
Back to "normal"

Yesterday was such a joy. I was almost pain-free and had so much energy! Today it was back to my "normal" of pain, stiffness, and brain fog. Not happy, but tomorrow is Pain Shot Day. Hoping all goes well! ... Read more
What a lovely day!

Today was almost miraculous. Best I've felt in about 3 months. Made gentle use of it, trying not to overdo. Wish I knew how to replicate the feelings and wellness. Still looking forward to my pain shot on Friday, but it's been a great day! ... Read more
We have to stop meeting like this!

Ok, it isn't "Same Time Next Year," but it's close. I'm back, heavier, and in worse shape than I've ever been, particularly when it comes to my Mastocytosis and back issues. Now on a cane almost continuously, in a great deal of pain, on lots o... Read more
