Yes, I’m a Redneck


I had a terrible time with my back and fibro Tuesday night and Wednesday.  Once I have an Epidural Injection it feels better that day then inflammation sets in at the site about a day or so after and it causes extreme pain. The doctor told me the first time he gave me the epidural injection that with my fibro it was going to traumatize the site and it would last about a day.  He knew what he was talking about.  This is a normal thing for people with fibro.  If I stub my toe, hit my knee on something, fall, etc. it causes the pain to radiate from the site of the injury throughout my body.

Today my back pain is low and I enjoyed the morning outside watering and playing in my flower beds.  🙂   I praise God for each and every “good” day that I have.  My fatigue is better, but I always have to rest in the afternoon.  A “good” day for me is normally light housework, errands, or occasionally shopping in the morning, resting/sleeping in the afternoon, spending time with my family in the evening, and early to bed.

Oh, I learned something new this week.  A nurse asked me if I had an autoimmune disease and I told her “Yes, I have fibromyalgia”.  She said that she could tell by the redness on my neck (Yes, I’m a Redneck).   I told her that my dermatologist said it was Rosacea and I didn’t realize that it was related to my fibro.  Here is a link with information:  http://fatigue-cfs.com/Fibromyalgia/Rosacea-Fibromyalgia.html

So, I  am curious….. for those of you that have Fibromyalgia/Lupus do you also have Rosacea?

      It is a theme that I selected when I started this website with Word Press. It is called Sapphire. I agree it is calming. On Word Press go to Appearance, Manage Themes, then select Sapphire.
