I hope.Had Thabksgiving here. Finally getting over the effort put in getting ready. My sugar free Chocolate Cake. I also made a sugar free pecan cobbler.

A Walk Among the Stones

This is a poem I write for a voodoo doll poetry contest. When ask if the walker was seeking relief through death, it dawned on me that this describes what those of us with fi bro go through. I belong to fibro support groups on facebook and the wish for death or even suicide is commented on daily. Walk Among the Stones Whispers travel through the leaves Reaching ears unseen Words spoken over graven image Smoke blown in the ear Eyes wide Gripped in fear Blessed in chicken blood A limp appeared...

Fibro Dysphagia

Fibromyalgia brings so many symptoms. Four weeks ago I took my usual handful of night time medications and supplements. They went into my lungs. I managed to cough and spew them up all over the One may have dissovled before I could get up. Needless to say I irritated my bronchials which lead to bronchitis. I tried to use the essential oils to avoid the Dr but it didn't work. Took a round of an expensive antibiotic that didn't work so just finished a Zpack. I also agreed to a steroid...

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....
