I’m a Chronic Illness Warrior!!

September 12, 2012

Living a life of chronic illness can be really draining and it steals a lot of our lives.  I try to stay positive and push myself to do as much as I can.  Somedays my body just feels like staying in bed.  I feel like I have the flu, with fatigue, and severe pain.  I try to get up and do something – ANYTHING – to get out of bed.  I find this gives me a little energy, makes me feel better mentally, and I can help around the house as well.  Sometimes I water my flowers, sometimes “play in my flowerbed”, do a little housework, visit my Mother-in-Law, or have lunch with a friend.  I haven’t been able to get out and shop recently due to my back and hip issues, so I feel a little home bound.  Let’s pray that we all have less pain and extra energy!!  Blessings!

Nap Time!

August 28, 2012

 

I went to my rheumatologist yesterday and my pain level was high.  He gave me a pain shot to help relieve my pain.  It helped but it took it longer than normal.  My wonderful Mother-in-law came over and did housework for me.  Love her so much!  Today my pain has been low and my energy is ok, so I ran a couple of errands that are close to home.  Now it’s time for my daily rest/nap!!
