Today is such a beautiful day here I decided to get out and take a little drive. I ended up at the cemetery where my daughter, Stephanie, and my daddy are buried. It looked like the mowers had been there but not the ones to weed around the markers. I did pull a few weeds and turned the vases upside down since I didn't bring flowers for them. (the vases get stolen from there a lot!) Hopefully it won't be long and we'll get back out there to put new flowers in the vases.
The reason I needed to get out of the house was this....I have fibromyalgia and it can really get you down! Both mentally and physically! When it flares up, it's very hard to do much more than very light housework. And I mean VERY light! Mine is in a flare up right now. All I really want to do is go to bed and get comfortable. My husband suggested a drive instead. A walk is out of the question! I'm waiting on the weather to get warmer and stay warmer through the night so our pool will warm up enough for me. Right now it's still too cold for me. My daughter and husband have been in but I will have to wait until later this month or early June. Swimming is an excellent exercise for fibro since there is no stress on your body. I know when I get out of the pool, I feel really good! So let's pray for warmer nights to keep the heat in the pool!
I found a new doctor in Houston who specializes in fibromyalgia. I've made an appointment and hope and pray she can find something I can take that will help with the pain. The otc stuff just doesn't do much.
So, now you may know more than you wanted to know about me! Fibromyalgia is a condition that not much is known about. It is hard to diagnose and hard to find just the right treatment. Let's all pray for everyone that is affected by this condition, including the families of the ones diagnosed.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and may the Lord bless you and your family immensely!
