I must say after a crazy busy weekend I am finally starting to feel better this morning, as far as the fatigue goes. Of course this is wonderful especially because today is the day I inject myself with poison to keep my arthritis symptoms at bay. Don't get me wrong I am thankful for my meds but for the next twenty-four hours I will get a headache, feel puckie, and very tired. Plus, on top of that I have to have a crown so I will be sitting in a dentist chair for an hour and a half. To many that is no big deal but for me not to move for an hour and a half can be very painful, but I will get through it! The best part, because of my shot, is that by Friday I will, hopefully, start to feel better for the weekend. I sure do hope so because this plan did not work the past week. I have been swollen and sore all week. Of course the week after I saw my Rheumatologist I get hit with a flare, they never hit when I actually see her. I was feeling great the six weeks before my appointment. Then WHAM like a bus hitting a brick wall, it all starts up again. It sure isn't easy but I am hopeful that this will turn around, and I know it will, it is just a matter of when. Tomorrow? Next week? Next month? Who knows? But I keep the hope while trying to keep my head held high and my emotions at bay.
I woke up this morning very weepy for some reason. What I like to call being a cry baby. I knew the pain was still there so of course all I wanted to do was cry. But then I sat at the computer, went on my facebook, and started reading the inspiration I find there everyday. The great quotes of hope that I read. The posts of my friends who are struggling much more than I right now and it pulls me out of the cry baby, feel sorry for myself, stage. I can't thank all of my facebook friends enough for all times you have brought me out of the valley of self pity. I love you all!
Well, thats all for today. Now, onward we go!
