Fibro Feelings – Just Call Me a Fibro Warrior

What is Fibro Feelings?

Well, this week ended up being a lot more productive than I’d planned! For the most part it was slower paced, but I ended up running around quite a bit marking more things off my to-do list here and there. I had a thought of how incredible it would be if all of the things were off my list before the baby came, but I realized that isn’t really realistic. I’ve always got a list going and am adding things to it.

I have gotten nearly all my Christmas cards in the mail and finally got holiday gifts in the mail to all but two or three people. Now I just have to figure out what I’m getting for three or four more people. (This surely will get done in time, right? Tell me yes.) The last few weeks I’ve been trying to make plans to meet up with friends since I know that’ll be even harder once the baby arrives. I want to make sure those relationships are nurtured before I may end up going off the radar for a bit.

Two weeks ago I mentioned starting to take baths to soothe my pain for the first time while pregnant. My opinion is that it did help some, especially with the sciatica pain. I really wish the water could be over 100 degrees though because it would feel even better then. My sciatica is actually hurting quite a bit since having walked on a tour for 30-40 minutes on Friday evening. It is interesting how the slightest difference in how I move my leg can either make it hurt extremely bad or have me barely feel pain. I should try soaking again tomorrow.

This week I’m honored to be featured as the Fibro Warrior of the Week over at Fibro Daily. Check it out to see more about how my journey with fibromyalgia has gone and what I think about it. You can also see posts from the first two Fibro Warriors of the Week.

Do you have all your holiday gift shopping finished?

You’ll get it done sweetie. As I lay in bed with pneumonia and my old standby Fibromyalgia…Christmas isn’t going to be ruined because you didn’t get it all done. Your family and friends only want you healthy for Christmas!

Oh, I’m so sorry to hear you have pneumonia! One of my relatives was hospitalized for that this year. I hope you’re starting to feel better.
