Hey, Gang. I am spending the morning with you all, trying to catch up on things here. Hope your day is blessed!

Dogs and I just got home from our morning walk around the neighborhood. I added 2 more minutes to my walk today, for a total of 32 minutes. It still amazes me how rapidly I am building up my time spent, doing so with strength, and seeing the added plus of it putting a stop to the flares! I get up most mornings feeling a flare coming on, but the walk seems to calm it down and I march on with strength for the rest of the day. It is great!

May your days be flare free, pain free, and strength beyond measure. emoticon

Hey gang. I just finished batch cooking sausage and bacon for the freezer. Just wanted to pop in and touch base.

My dogs are worn out beside me. We did our 27 minute neighborhood walk again today, only instead of the small hill up the alley for our finish around our block, we walked the big hill up the street next to us. Same distance, just different path to get there. It was great!

Well, must get the dogs bathed and get my shower. I have towel laundry to do today, and may make a grocery run this evening. Will see. Need to get the roast on for dinner soon.

BLESSings, beloved ones.

What do you make most when you crochet? I am into making baby things for our local pregnancy center and a friend hooked me on making dolls and stuffed animals. I am making them for my grands.

Yes, pharmacists seem to not connect the dot between those caps and "Oh, this client is on arthritis meds. Hum." Glad you took care of that.

I had another good walk today. It is really helping my fibro symptoms!

Hope you have a great day!

I crochet too, and it works to keep from snacking. The weather is warmer then the last 2 weeks and makes it easier to get things done. The drug store put new caps on prescription bottles that are hard to open. I called and asked if they could put the snap ones on. The person asked why I didn't like the new caps. I told here that I cant get them open mornings ,I have arthritis in my hands.

Howdy! Awfully quiet here. I hope it is because you are out living life elsewhere.

I had a really rough day yesterday. Just could not seem to function. Today seems better so far. I got up early and got outside for a good walk, then did my strength exercises. All is good. Hoping to get some things done today, and I need to get a new crochet project going. Keeping my hands busy is vital to my avoiding munching!

I do that in the winter. It does help to drink warm.

Made it out in time for another walk today. Made it the full mile with ease. It felt great. Buddy, our older dog, did better today than yesterday. He was dragging with the half mile yesterday. It was good, and walking outdoors makes a big difference. I feel better.

Hope you are having a great day.

BLESSings,
Darlene

Happy to hear you can enjoy the fall weather and a nice walk. The mornings are cold but I push myself to exercise and enjoy the out doors as often as I can. Raynaud is bad with the cold weather so staying busy is importune,sad when I look forward to washing dishes so my hands get warm. We heat with wood so the house is warm, I just have to remember to keep moving. emoticon

Hey, gang. Hope you are doing well. You are certainly being too quiet, so I hope that means you are out and about living life.

I am fighting appetite like crazy since starting the Cymbalta. Not liking it! Hope you all are doing well.

It is beautiful out this morning. The dogs and I had our first outing of the Fall season. I really was amazed that I was able to do so well for the first time out. Usually I am crying out for the Lord's help, but He had me ready by keeping me active through the summer, so I am not having to start from the beginning with my outdoor excursions. Increase will come quickly, and that is good! We live at the bottom of our top of the canyon neighborhood, so it is up hill no matter which way I go. We chose the moderate hill, and I made the journey with ease. I seriously debated about going the entire circle of the neighborhood, but it seemed unwise to push my first time out. I hope to get out again tonight or tomorrow. Don't want to set my body aflame the first time out and have a set back.

Well, gotta get my Spark done then get up and busy with the day. Talk to you later!

Sandy, that is something I tend to do as well. It is difficult when we are feeling so good, to remember the need of balance so we keep feeling good. Hope you are feeling better.

It was a sluggish day most of today, but I am feeling better and managed to have a productive day.

Had a major bout of fibro fog along with a flare that lasted two days. Was able to go to work on Friday. Feeling much better today. I overdid my strength training and I am still sore. I have to remember to balance myself when exercising but I have always pushed myself. Well you live and you learn every second of every day.

Feeling a little 'yuck' today as this med takes hold, but brain fog is lifting and pain is subsiding. I will continue to take it easy through the weekend with hope of being ready to push again next week. Really working to watch my diet today. With the pain and tired, I got a little out of control and off plan. So I will work through the weekend on getting back on track with my dietary choices. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Thank you, Newvine. My appointment went well. I am back on Cymbalta: took the first one today and am starting to feel a little better - less pain, more brain. LOL.

He is doing another Thyroid test, checking both the brain's part and the thyroid's function. He is also doing a test for "inflammation markers". Apparently it is a general test for inflammation that will let him know what direction to go in looking for a specific inflammatory disease process if that is the issue. Continued prayer for revelation of any specific issues appreciated.

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement.

Hi! The changing weather has made some things harder to do. School starts tomorrow so I am back cleaning at night. Once I get use to the new movements I hope it becomes easier each day. Movement is the key for me , but change can make things difficult. I am ready to keep pushing.

Darlene Prayers that you get the answers you are looking for from your doctor.Feel better soon

Glad you are doing well, Sandy, and trusting the good in the decisions made by your employer. I am continuing in prayer for you.

My doctor's appointment is today and I am so ready. I am tired of this pain, and nothing seems to help with it. Just praying wisdom for him, as I truly believe their is something more going on that meets the eye. I have too many other symptoms that are explained by a Thyroid issue but are not part of a fibro diagnosis. Right now I am taking it easy and not pushing, but hope to be back at it strong soon.

BLESSings,
Darlene

Hello all,

Doing well and have been free of the fog for the past four days. I was upset on Thursday for a little bit when my employer told me that I would be losing my 12 hours shifts at work on school holidays due to missing time. They know that I have fibro and it has been the reason why I have missed time but they are insistent. I later thought about it and decided that it was actually a blessing since I usually sleep bad and have fog after these shifts. I am consistently tracking my symptoms on the American Chronic Pain Society page. I have to get blood work and xrays next week.

Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day.

Sandy

Good to hear from you, Cathy. So glad you are feeling better and having good days.

I really like my fitbit as well. Link up with me there if you want: www.fitbit.com/user/2GNBF8 Be sure to tell me who you are. I don't build up a lot of friends there, just Spark friend links. I don't want to miss you if you friend me.

I am so badly flared still. I can't recall my symptoms ever being this bad. My appointment with the doctor is Wed. afternoon. I am really struck with how all my "Fibro" symptoms fit the hypothyroidism symptoms, as well as a bunch of others not explained by a fybro diagnosis. So I am hopeful that the doctor will do more checking to see if that is the problem.

Despite the pain and brain fog today, it has been a great day. I am looking forward to a great week and hoping the same for you!

I understand how hard that must be, getting back into the swing of things. I have thought about getting a job, but, gratefully, at this point, I don't have to work. Concerns of being unable to keep up on bad days keeps me from doing so. I will keep you in prayer as you start back to your schedule.

I have had a great day. Lunch with the In-Laws after church was very peaceful and enjoyable.

Hope you all are have a BLESSed Sunday.

Hi! Last week was hard. After 6 weeks off I am back to work cleaning a school for 6 hours. It was hard to get up early and was a very tiring week. In 2 week school starts and I will be back working nights and will be able to get a few exercises done before my afternoon shift.

emoticon We are glad to see you here. The team will be active in spurts. Just hang in. Others will be back as they can.

That is a great attitude. There will be times when wisdom is needed. We have to learn when we need rest for pain relief and to keep from getting to where we can't function. Balance and wisdom is the answer along with that determination to keep on keeping on. On really bad days, if all I can do is 500 steps at a time, I set a timer for every hour or so and do it. It adds up through the day. .

Sick today.. However since I can't tell if it is a symptom of Fibro or Stomach flu, I did my rehab and exercises. I am making a goal to exercise whether I am in pain or not. I can not let it beat me. I can not let it be my excuse.

Hey, gang. Figured I would check in here. Everyone is being so quiet. Hope you are well.

Something has flared me again. Very frustrating. I am mostly resting today, but must get into the grandkids bedroom. One of them left a mess I will have to take the shampooer to. Some will be in tomorrow night, so I want to get it done and the beds remade before they arrive.

I am thinking of you! Hang in there, hold your ground when you can do no less, and press on when you can.

DH was up and out of the house early today. This week is between semesters, so he will go early and get home early as they have registration and inservice meetings. So I am up and at it too. Usually I have until around 10:00 PM to get my stuff done, and I do like to have it done by the time he gets home so, so I am busy with laundry and home making projects. I am also getting my steps in and working to eat well.

Hope you all are having a great day!

Hello all

I had a pretty good day. I still am not sleeping well at night especially after working my 12 hour shifts. I am coping and overcoming the fibro fog. School is going well and I am able to exercise on a regular basis without pain or fog. Have work tomorrow and then off for the weekend. I finally got my car back from the shop as well. All in all a good day. I would rate my day a 7.

Hope you all are doing well.

Thank you very much for the prayers. We continue to wait for test results.

It has been a week that has felt like a struggle. I am ready for a new week with hope for a better one on the Spark front. It has been a great week for my writing and getting things posted to blogs that are flowing to me for sharing. And I finished making the gifts for my friend who is having a baby and for her little girl who will have a brother suddenly on the scene. I am looking forward to delivering them their gifts on Sunday. Hope you all are having a great week.

That is weird with both people in your family with the Addison testing. I'll be praying for you all.

Praying for you as you work with your Dr. in addressing all issues.

I slept for 2 hours this afternoon after the kids and my friend left. Very tired.

My youngest daughter called this evening. She is being tested for Addison's disease. Then I learned a niece is also being tested for the same thing. Way weird, as rare as it is.

Have BLESSed rest and a great tomorrow!

Finished seeing my fibro Dr. this morning and I've got more problems.... ha ha! He put me on a 1,000 calorie diet to see if that will help with me getting some of my weight off better.

I wish I could crochet. I have tried so many times. You would think with small hands I would be perfect. It's like I can't concentrate on the many things going on. My hands seem like the hands of a giant.

Hope everyone is doing great and has been having a good week!

Enjoying kids and grandkids who will head by home to the Dallas area after lunch. A friend is coming for lunch, then we are having a crochet day. She needs help learning some stitches. Love time with friends.

My bod is aching some today. The stress. even though good stress, effects the fibro. Thankfully it is staying below 5.

Hope you all are having a good day.

Hello all,

I had a wonderful Sunday and day today. Church always uplifts me. Had a good time with my client and his family. Was able to enjoy coloring and reading with him as well as watch movies and play the wii.

Taking Melatonin for a few nights usually will knock my system back into alignment so I sleep better. Also make sure to turn all technologies off for at least 30 minutes before bed: TV, cells, electronic readers, etc. This along with dimming lights gives time to our natural melatonin levels to increase and prep our bodies for sleep.

I am doing well. had a great day yesterday. Today I am a little tired, partly because I have been at this computer too long, and partly because I am stressed with kids coming in and the house being in less that best condition after the weekend. Don't worry. I am not going to try to get it perfect, but there are some things that need done before they get here. So I am off here. See you late tomorrow or early Wednesday.

I am totally and excruciatingly exhausted and have been for a week. I'm not sleeping that badly but I'm struggling to stay awake. Any tips of what to do? I work full days so having a nap is not an option. emoticon

I feel GREAT today. I have been painting my living room and hall walls one at a time (trying not to overdo) for the last month and today I am now down to 1 wall left. I feel better that I was able to get this far and still do the household chores that I normally do n Sundays.
Now to hoe I have not overdone much as this week I have to get back to school things done for my DD and school starts midweek.

Today was busy and frustrating. Did chores in the morning, while DH was helping some friends with mechanical issues. When he got home we all headed west to the valley to get supplies for our upcoming camping trip. It is much warmer there and by mid afternoon we were all grumpy. Came home with half the stuff....ugh! So DH stayed home and my son and I picked up a few things at the local store and will finish up Wednesday south of here where it remains cool. My fit bit registered 13058 steps! Only 2 miles were exercise the rest walking the stores...
Excited for the 9 day camping trip, but it is always a fiasco getting ready to go. We leave Friday.
The great part about my day was I spent my weight loss challenge winnings on new walking shoes and a new pair of sandles. Woo hoo! And I ate pretty healthy while running around in the city...

It has been a pretty good day today. Very little pain, not counting the headache I have been fighting all day. Made it to the grocery store. WE HAVE FREGGIES IN THE FRIDGE! I am in hog heaven. Other than the headache, no brain fog or other issues. I am very grateful. Hope your day has been good.
