Thursday, April 24

Nope I didn't run away, I'm still here.

Things have just been a bit crazy around here. I am trying to catch up with the house and crafting and life in general. I went through a pretty bad time at the end of March first of April. I have fibromyalgia. Somedays are good days and some days are bad days. It varies and there is no rhyme or reason. Well about 6-7 weeks ago I ran out of one of my meds. I decided not to fill it or take it anymore. Well that was not a great idea. It was an antidepressant med. I started going downhill and just not dealing with the pain and crap that comes with fibromyalgia. It got really bad toward the end of the month. I just did not want to deal with the fibro anymore. I tried to get to my Dr. but they were all booked. They suggested going to the ER. Well by the time I got there I was just done. I did not want to go on. So the hospital recommended I admit myself for a few days. I ended up going into the hospital for 5 days. The reason I was admitted is because they have more control over my meds and the ability to change them and see how I reacted. So I did get my meds all straightened out. And honestly I feel so much better. I have a better medication regimend and see a specialist who is helping with the fibro. I really have not had any physical changes, but emotionally I feel better and can deal with the physical much better. Big sucky thing about the hospital, NO KNITTING.

So anyway I am doing much much better. It's kind of weird but I have just really starting to realize just how bad I was before going to the hosp. So anyway, I am still here. Just trying to catch up like I said. Soon I will post a "stash flash". I hit a LYS going out of business sale and went a little crazy. LOL all told I did save 67%! Ok I will post soon I promise. I'm just catching up and I just got a promotion at work! So I love my job. Working at home and a promotion. Ok so see ya soon!

i heard they went outta business. bummer. i never went there ever. no reason other than laziness.

why no knitting in the hospital? did you tell them about the withdrawels you would suffer? or did suffer, rather? i have a strange medication trick for you that i learned from my other lupus/fybro friends...first, i am sure you know take pain meds on an empty stomach, second, get unisom sleep gels...it intensifies the effects of the pain meds. the pharmacist verified that it was safe. it doesn't make me sleepy with pain meds, although it does with sleep meds. have you tried the one med for fybro called lyrica? my mom takes it and thinks it helps a lot. sometimes insurance is funny about giving it.
