What a few months it has been! I had expected to get right into working out regularly when I stopped working, but that wasn't to be. My husband had a heart cath and we found he had three major artierial blockages at 85%, 95%, and 100%! He was sc... Read more

As of this week I am no longer a full-time working mom. My neuro has ruled that I need to stop working for now to give my body to come out of this long-term flare. He does not sound hopeful that I'll go back any time soon, but we'll see. If God ... Read more

I had my three month check-in appointment with the doc and nutritionist this week. I saw another doc before my surgeon came in and she was incredibly helpful! Answered tons of questions, gave me tons of information and I felt good after it. The ... Read more

Yesterday was supposed to be my last vacation day before returning to work. I had another blackout episode with the vertigo. I go to the doctor today and they will probably want a CT scan. So I'm likely to have a full week of testing. I am not g... Read more

I'm still recovering from yesterday's fall. DH is adamant that I see the doc on Monday. I will at least call and ask her if I should come in. My plan is to take one last vacation day on Monday, so I'd rather not drive to the doc (which is on wor... Read more

I hope all of you reading this have had a wonderful start to your 2016. I decided to ring in the new year with some exercise--after getting out of bed at 11:30am. :) To very late nights in a row, but it was worth it. Last night we brought the ne... Read more

It's been a busy month and I have no done well keeping up with this blog. Not a huge surprise here. The fibromyalgia and fatigue have been pretty bad, but there's hope. I got to see my PCP doc last week and she had some ideas to try, so I have t... Read more

Last night I developed a migraine. I took some ibuprofen and went to bed in response to it. Usually I try to work through such things, but not this week. Unfortunately, I woke up with the same thing. I slept an extra two hours and then got up to... Read more

Rough week so far, but good. I had serious back, hip, and leg pain when I woke Monday morning, so have been out of work until today. One of the hardest things for me is admitting that I just cannot expect my body to come out of a flare/crash if ... Read more

Been a mostly good day today. I made it to church and that was an amazing service. I realize God IS answering the question about which I've been praying. I don't really find this surprising, but I tend to be dense, so it took awhile for me to un... Read more

This has been a rough day for me. Just getting out of bed was a challenge. I can tell that I have entered the phase known as 'full on flare' with the fibro/CFIDS. I am feeling quite frustrated, even depressed, about my ability to work and care f... Read more

I am realizing that in the bustle of learning to live and eat again after bariatric surgery, I have rather ignored my chronic fatigue immune-deficiency syndrome (CFIDS) and fibromyalgia. I am starting to see those issues come up again as I am fu... Read more

Got a late start this morning, which tends to mess with the rest of my day. No time for a protein snack 'cause I'm getting breakfast late. Today is also a meeting day for my dept. and it interferes with my water kickboxing class. So I went for a... Read more

It's hard to believe that December is here already. It's been cold and rainy around here lately, but it's supposed to warm up tomorrow. I am hoping for some clear weather, too. Tomorrow's task for the #Find30 challenge is to help a neighbor and ... Read more
