How Much Pain Can You Stand?

Saw the podiatrist about my two ruptured Achilles tendons. If I have surgery,it is a 6 - 9 month recovery with intensive physical therapy. If I had surgery and they reduce the bulk of tendon torn, it is only replaced with sutures that can cause pain. So strap on some quick lace ASO braces and go forth until the pain is to intense to stand. BTW, the right tendon could have reoccured because of the Trazadone that caused all the other tendon, muscle and bone pain. Rick ask if I could stand yhe pain... Sign in to see full entry.

My new buddy "Miss Peaches". Rescued her from the shelter last week. She picked Tuesday. I called the vet that she was to be taken to and they had no record of her. When I called the shelter, they said that the vet was backed up and it might be Wednesday or Thursday. I had already called the vet I would be taking her to and they had told me they would honor the spay voucher from the Shelter. I went by the shelter and for Peaches to be sent to my vet. They told me that the vet didn't honor the... Sign in to see full entry.

Calm Down

Sharon Woodruff Edwards shared The Humor Train 's photo. 5 mins · Tried as I might it didn't work. My B/P stayed 198/120 and the chest pain would not disappear. Denial didn't work. I knew I was in trouble when the Nitroglycerin stopped the chest pain and didn't cause migraine. Thankfully the cardiac stress test was normal but took IV meds to bring down my B/P. Thankfully I only had to stay for observation but I intend to take care of me and sleep for the next week. Rest in the sun and soak up... Sign in to see full entry.

Caling Dr. Kevorkian

If you have a terminal illness, there are drugs. You either get better or die. Either way there is an end point. If you have fibromyalgia, there is no drug, it is hit or miss, and usually you have to find your own way. No one believes that it effects, every joint, tendon, joints, bones, brain, and organs in your body. You have no immunity systerm. You have no self anymore. Where is Dr. Kevorkian when you need him? Is there euthansia kits on line? Sign in to see full entry.

"It Has Name"

I have mycoplasma pneumonia so no wonder I'm not getting better. After 2 weeks of a very expensive antibiotic, I was not any better. My white count was over 15000 with a shift and that's not good. So a shot and another round. A 500mg Z-Pack and complete bedrest for the past 4 days. Coughing yesterday very productive so I hope that means everything is moving out. Today is better and breathing better. No Jax until Wednesday. Still need to do a nebulizer treatment for today and my inhaler but have... Sign in to see full entry.

Stories from Childhood

When I was reading TAPS blogit, I was reminded about a childhood story. I don't remember doing this but was told I used to wear my shoes on the wrong feet and backwards. I have tried it since and couldn't accomplish the backwards part. I also changed my name to Gladys and wouldn't answer to anything else. I was reminded of this stubborness last week when I told Jax he had to take a nap. He had two choices get his pacie and lay on big bear or I was going to hold him and rock him. Jax's response...

I've been multitasking the last week. Snot, cough, pee; snot, cough, pee. Headache, nausea, and too tired to move. Saw my Dr. on Tuesday and have bronchitis then I got Jax's cold on top of it. We have been snowed in all week. Rick took the Rogue to work Wednesday and and the plant closed Friday. We alternated who would get the bed. I watched Netflix on computer and napped. Rick read a book and napped. Rick reads a book a day. Jax played in the snow with Mommy and Daddy. He was more worried about... Sign in to see full entry.

Fibro! How many years has it been? Too many to count. Relentless migration but still the same pain. Day in, day out, night in and night out. Will I get to sleep tonight? Probably not. What will I do tomorrow? Wake up in pain. Fibro! It has taken away my self-worth. Who is this person I see in the mirror? Exercise more “they” say. I can’t even walk to the mailbox and back. Fibro! Brain fog, joint pain, chest pain, stiffness, pelvic pain, memory loss, inability to read and understand, aphasia, OMG... Sign in to see full entry.

A New Year Already

Where to start? I have began the guiafenisen treatment since I had not been taking it as I had before. OMG I thought that my symptoms were bad before I restarted the guiafenisen. With this treamtment it helps the kidneys to excrete the phosphates. As the phosphates are pulled out of the tissues and tendons, you recycle your worst symptoms. I had forgotten how bad the pain could be. I managed to take the dose that made my symptoms the worst they had ever been for two weeks only. One is supposed... Sign in to see full entry.

Happy Thanksgiving

We had Thanksgiving here at my and Rick's new (very old) house. Jax says hi. I wish I knew how to get these pics rotated. Anyway we had a great time and lots and lots of food. Mr. Jax clung to his pa and grandmama. He is growing so fast. I started counting with him in english and he switched to French. I taught him to count to 10 in Japanese. He still won't call me grannie but he will call me Sharon. Rick and I had to keep him overnight last Friday while Blake took Yvette to the ER for a... Sign in to see full entry.

Friday's at the Far Out Mansion

Friday’s at the Far Out Mansion Best to get there early and don’t forget some food and drink. It’s Friday again and time to celebrate. It’s hat week, Carmen Miranda’s birthday, toga, toga, toga. We all had another week taking care of 80 children at the local mental hospital and anything one could think of was the theme of celebration. The only difference between “US” and “THEM” was we carried the keys. Circa 1970’s and The Rocky Horror Picture Show so if you hadn’t had something too bad and was... Sign in to see full entry.

Have been painting, painting and painting again. This time I did the hall way and ceilig. I painted our entrance door red and I made curtains for the laundry room and our office. Hopefully will be getting to close on my house next week. Still waiting on renters to sign sales contract. I have given the deal of the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Catching Up

It has been a traumatic year both physically and psychologically. My body is finally telling me so and is refusing to cooperate with my brain. My brain makes plans to organize this or that but my body refuses to go and the part of my brain that is used to organize has completly turned off. Having recognized all this, yes I am definitely in a Fibro flare. I finally have an appointment with the orthopedist next Monday for my left knee. However, I am a walking gold mine for him. Besides the left... Sign in to see full entry.
