Fibro Feelings – A Week of Changes

What is Fibro Feelings?

The last couple weeks I’ve been tapering off one of my medications and at the middle of last week I started taking a half dose. Of course, this is with permission from my rheumatologist. Over the last few days some of my bursitis pain sneaked back up, which is sort of a bummer. Luckily, it still feels way better than it has in the past. Only one day was it so bad that I had to ice the pain away, so I’m going to continue tapering off the medicine.

After a really busy seven of nine days I spent Wednedsay through Saturday resting. Boy did my body need it, mentally and physically! I wasn’t hurting too much, but was feeling fairly fatigued. The Helpful Hubby was trying to beat a cold, so he didn’t mind the low key time. By the end of the weekend we were both feeling much better. The highlight of me week was getting the exciting news that a long-time friend had just given birth to her first child. We live far apart, but I got to see pictures of her new bundle of joy online.

I also worked on my site a bit this weekend. The Post Archives (top right) now take up a lot less space, as only the current year is expanded. I also finally figured out how to fix the annoying centering that was happening to my posts when viewed in Internet Explorer. I hope these changes improve your user experience, as I’ve been wanting to fix them for quite awhile now. I’m always open to suggestions, so let me know if there is something that you’d like to see on here.

What kind of changes are happening in your life?

Change in my life comes in the form of a twenty-pound loss. When my sister died nearly four years ago at 49 I took it very badly and began to eat ice cream each night. Lo and behold 20-pounds later my lower joints were crying, I was fatigued all the time and my dang pants looked like painted corduroy. So in Jan, I had a job that required me to walk a mile at least every day and I quit drinking milk. Between the two the weight began to drop off. I am now into my pants with room to spare, my shirts fit a Lot better and I can walk nearly pain free. And I get looked at once in a while again, which feels good when you get to be my age. Keeping the walking going was a smart move and I am really happy with my Change. Thanks for asking. :)

Congrats on your weight loss and increased activity, Lynda! They say every 1 lb of weight is 5 lbs of pressure on your joints. Your happiness and confidence shines through your comment. I’m so sorry for your loss.
