Okay, I didn’t accomplish all of what I set out to do yesterday. I did start the laundry, I delagated the dishes to Natalie (totally counts) and I got to the doctors.
So today, I need to shower, like right now, make 4 phone calls, and pay bills. I also have PT this evening and want to get another load of wash done.
My doctor didn’t diagnose me with anything yet; instead he upped my meds (again) and has given me a referral to a Rhuemotiod. That’s fine with me, it’s progress. My blood work came back fantastic (I think that is normal with FMS) and he was happy about that. My blood pressure was high, but that could be from the meds, it was also confirmed my rediculous brusing is from the meds. Yea, I’m pasty white with black, blue, yellow and brown spots. Attractive!
Anyway, today is the first day of 200 mg Savella, it usually takes a week or two to feel the full effects but I am feeling jittery right now, instead of tired like I usually am around this time of day. Hopefully this will keep the fatigue away for a few hours. I slept well last night after I finally fell asleep after 1:30am. Maybe if I stay up late every night I will be able to sleep longer hours straight through? All together I am happy to say I had 6 hours of uninturrupted sleep. Fantastic! I hope that becomes the norm 🙂 My pain level is a 6 now but I am not going to feel sorry for myself today.
I hope to have something fun to write about soon, I am sorry if this topic is stretching out too long. I’ve gotten some good feedback and tons of much appriciated support from a lot of you though and right now this is my stupid life. Key words: Right Now. I gotta believe! Thank you so much everyone for being so kind, it means more to me than you will ever know.
I did start up a new blog just for this topic, but I’m kind of afraid I will just wallow in self pity and pain, that is why I haven’t written there yet. If this kind of post really starts to take over on this site though I will move it over there so I don’t drive you all insane.
I am setting a fun goal for myself today to balance all of the boring dreaded things on my to do list: take a picture of something that makes me smile and post it with a happy Ginger post. Have a nice day everyone 🙂
