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"!
Good morning.With nights like these, day is pointless. Ugh. Nuff said. See physio doc in a few hours. Hopefully he can do something. If not? I dunno. I'll worry about it then.***Hubby's cancer doc got on his case about not sleeping enough. Hubby was, naturally, all macho and "I don't need to talk to a counselor about my anxieties or career issues!"Right. And I'm a kumquat. *checks* Nope,...
Hey, fibro warriors. Middle of the night here and can't sleep. The trade winds are dead, it's humid, house was a sauna, I can't get comfortable and IBS is bugging me. When it gets humid like that, my skin feels like someone poured hot tar on it. I did a DIY haircut today with mom's help, she did the back side because I couldn't see and reach around. You should have seen her panic when I gave her...
