More aggravating news!

Monday, July 21, 2014

Well I went to see my new primary care physician. The good news is I really like him! The bad news is the shoulder pain I've been dealing with since November is the result of bone spurs and osteoarthritis. He gave me a shot of cortisone (which hurt like h***!) But now my shoulder feels sooo much better. He's getting me referrals to a new rheumatologist, neurologist, and ear, nose, and throat dr. So hopefully soon I will be feeling better, like my old self.

It's getting harder to exercise what with me getting 1-4 migraines a day. But I'm just taking it one day at a time and doing what I can when I can. emoticon Unfortunately that means I've gained back a bit of weight and with my dad home ALL WEEK I am not getting much in the way of any exercise in. emoticon But I am practicing a lot of deep breathing and trying to clean my room. But I will be going to Shawn's apt on Thursday at noon emoticon I hope everyone is having a great week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Not so good food-wise this weekend

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Lots of fast food but I mainly stuck to grilled bbq chicken wraps at mcd's, no fries or anything. Just wish I could have some grilled chicken. I'm staying at Shawn's till Tuesday afternoon (YA! alone time with him! Finally!). I had 3 migraines this week which was not fun. Felt worse for Brandi because I was too out of it to do much with her (though she is 20 so she can entertain herself). Hopefully I can get a lot accomplished this week since the last few have been a blur. I hope everyone Has a great rest if the weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

feeling GRREAT!!

Friday, July 11, 2014

I cut gluten out of my diet and the rewards are astounding! My migraines have lessened and my joint pain is getting much better! Plus I've lost an additional 3 pounds emoticon in the last few days! So happy! I'm eating well and and feeling so good! Brandi, Shawn's niece, is down. The only problem is she's a super light sleeper that likes to sleep till 10am, meanwhile I've been up since 7 am and it's only 8:30 am and I'm hungry, thirsty and I know if I even attempt to go out to the kitchen I'll wake her up. So I'm being nice and just chilling out in Shawn's bedroom till I can't take it anymore emoticon

Next week is a breeze then the following week I have 2 doctor appointments and a therapy appoint, thus far. Plus my dad will how all week, so who knows how much exercise I'll get in. I figure I'll just keep eating my healthy diet and do what I can. My goal that week s just to maintain my weight, if nothing else. And I'm finally starting to stop obsessing about everything! I have really bad (clinical) anxiety and I'm finally letting it go, after 14 years!! emoticon NOW THAT IS SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE!! I hope everyone has a fab weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy Day after 4th of July!

Saturday, July 05, 2014

Sorry I've been MIA for awhile! I've been busy with Shawn and his nephew :) Unfortunately yesterday was not too great of a day for me. I had a migraine from 4 pm till well, basically I still have it just not nearly as severe. Shawn snored all night long so I got about 6.5 hours of sleep and he's still sleeping, so unfair :( (and snoring LOL! Kind of out of the groove of things right now but I'm still eating pretty heathy so I haven't gained any weight emoticon I stopped taking the lupus pills that were making me sick because they started to cause me to have some severe depression and mess with my head. NOT COOL! So now I'm happier emotionally but in a lot more pain physically. Catch-22 there but I'd rather be in my right mind.

I hope everyone had a great 4th and has a fantastic weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hello, I was MIA too, but back now and moving on. Hard to do anything with migraines, so just pamper yourself when you have those. emoticon
As far a snoring, well both my hubby and dog snore, and they both sound the same ,LOL!! I have to sleep in another room, so bad sometimes.
Great that you are eating well and have not gained, big plus. Hope they can find something better to help with your lupus so that you don't have to be in so much pain.
Hope the rest of your weekend goes well emoticon emoticon emoticon

Everything that can go wrong sometimes does go wrong

Saturday, June 21, 2014

I had a horrible migraine and cramps Tuesday and Wednesday, then Thursday and Friday I was nauseous and vomiting from my lupus pills. Today I finally feel good and I'm not going to let that go to waste! I'm going to do yoga and regular cardio today and tomorrow and start back up the Slim in 6 and do it everyday execept Thursday (which is reserved for the nausea etc from the pills). I'm also going to try really hard to eat more often to get past this lack off appetite which is causing me to lose weight but look sickly and horrible. Last week I lost 4 put without trying which is not cool considering all I did was exercise 2 times. emoticon . I hope everyone is having a great weekend!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
