It Was a Busy Month

August was a whirlwind of activities that left me feeling out of body and exhausted.. My legs felt like they belonged to someelse. Numb and weak and unsure about walking. I have finally recovered and actually exercising with resistance bands and weights. I walked a mile without stopping on Friday. I took Peaches to the vet last week. We had to wait a while so she was ready to go after getting her yearly shots. She is so strong. I was trying to check out as she pulled me through the exit to... Sign in to see full entry.

Cousins Pain and Agnes

wThe cousins showed up again without calling first. They are very intrusive tonight. I have begged them to go away. I have prayed for them to go away. They don't listen. They never do. Jax is Mr. basketball. He watched Space Jam and knows all the words to the song. He wants to be the next Micheal Jordan. He also sings "I Believe I Can Fly." Blake and Yvette had to come get my car seat because Yvette's had broken. He is not quite ready for a booster seat. He asked me to babysit him next Saturday.... Sign in to see full entry.

On the Road

We are on road to beach. Traveling in caravan with Brooke and Scott 15miles ahead and Kavira and Komate following us. We just got thru Asheville with rain and bumper to bumper traffic. Brooke says clear skies ahead. We are in heavy fog coming off the mountain into South Carolina. We have three and a half more hours to Isle of Palm. I couldn’t believe all the stuff I had to pack to breath (nebulizer and cpap) and for pain therapy (TENS and ultrasound)not to mention medication. Getting old sucks.... Sign in to see full entry.

Here We Go Again

First lt me start by showing off basketball Jax making a basket in a 7 foot goal. He did make the shot. Same song upteenth verse since 1991. My ex is a lonely old man who goes off on Blake if Blake doesn't respond to text within seconds. He showed up at his house 2 weeks ago demanding Blake give him his guns back. Worst of all he used his key to open the door. Blake was in the kitchen when the door suddenly opened. The ex demanded his guns and when Blake refused, he tried to get Blake to fight...

What do I do now?

I am no longer working or thinking about finding a new job or caring for a family member. I have started going for a weekly massage at the local massage school. 25.00 for 50 minutes. I found a holistic wellness center that offers Qi Gong for 10.00 a session. I have to meditate more. The Living Young essential oils have worked wonders for the usual fibro pain. I baby sat the Jax Saturday. He was playing a NBA game on x-box. It was an older game from a couple of years ago before he was born but he... Sign in to see full entry.

Who Knew?? There's an oil for that.

My Sister and I are not very close (her choice) but if I go see her, I am welcome with open arms. She recently intriduced me to Young Living essential oils. I tried them and have been pretty much pain free for the last month. I used a recipe of a carrier oil and frankincense and vetiver and black pepper. I also used a recipe for restless leg and stress away. I cannot believe the difference. I went 24 hours without applying the oils today and could tell a difference. My pain went from 2-3 to a 6....

On the Line

Fibro myalgia is a syndrome of learning one's boundaries. One step pver the line and you will be down for days or weeks. I haven't been this close to being one step over the line in a while. I fought with a love seat cover this morning, cleaned the bathroom, did laundry, went to Dollar General for cleaning supplies, unpacked a new set of copper cookware because my stainless steel is too heavey for me to lift any more, washed cookware and dishes, and fixed spaghetti for Rick and Snaz.
