I did not sleep much or well. The fibro is reacting to the weather changes. And they reduced my one pain med --- CElebrex -- lest I get stroke or heart attack. Um, most people get one of those before dying anyway, and why ruin my quality of life? Why? I'm being brave this week, but going from 400 mg daily to 200 mg daily? Oh, I feel it. Why anti-inflammatories help jme is a fibro mystery. SOme of us, they help. In my case, what it mostly helps is the scarring-related inflammation in my lower back and pelvis, IMHO, and the inflammation of muscles sure that I just did a CrossFit competition when I just got out of bed! I do all I am told to do, I "live right", and yet... Whatever.
That's my word today, for each of you. "Whatever". Why be upset and stressed when you can say "Whatever" and pull a Scarlett O'Hara and think of it tomorrow (or not at all)? Annoying neighbor? Whatever. Cat threw up? Whatever. Let the smaller things be "whatever'd" and to heck with 'em!
On that note, I'm going back to bed. The fibro had me to the point where my PJs felt too heavy and I'm using a space blanket for warmth because real ones hurt. I hate the transition phases of meds. Till I'm accustomed to the lower dose, I'm hurting extra, I suspect. That darn rebound effect as inflammation runs somewhat amok.
May you have a day that requires no more of you than a "Whatever"!
My day started out good. I guess that should have been a bad sign off the bat.This is now the 8th time my cardiologist doctor's office (nurse, manager, staff) has called to harass me about receiving my Patient Assistance Heart Medicine at their office. Let's just think about that statement for a minute. "A life saving heart medication".Patient assistance will only ship it to my doctor as that...
In this past summer school session, I collapsed from pneumonia in front of my students in my classroom while teaching and spent a week in the hospital recovering. I began this work week with a respiratory infection that got worse by Wednesday afternoon, so I told my boss that day I was going to take a sick day Thursday and, if needed, another on Friday to prevent pneumonia again. My...
