Last week I increased one of my meds. It is a powerful drug, though I was on a very low dose and even my increase is still a low dose. However, just a small increase was pretty difficult. The first day I slept for 11 hours and had a very diff... Read more

I didn't get enough sleep last night. I had to get up early to go to the sleep specialist. She's the second doc who's told me to up one of my meds. They say it should help my pain levels so maybe I should listen. . . She did give me a good ... Read more

Today got off to a slow start but I could feel the intense fatigue lessoning as the day went on. I didn't get a lot done today but I did get a bit done and that's good enough. Today's walk got off to a frustrating start. I decided that R... Read more

No walk yesterday or today. I had a great day yesterday - got a ton done - almost as much as "normal" people who don't have chronic illness. But the happiness was short lived when I could hardly move by dinner time. The extreme fatigue has la... Read more

I've been in a very bad place pain wise and in my spirit (discouragement) for the last couple of days. Today I decided to go for a walk with dd13 and Rocky. I wasn't sure what that would do to my pain but I knew it would boost my spirit. ... Read more

1. Could not get back to sleep again this morning. So six and half hours - not horrible but not enough either. 2. Did nap for about an hour later in the day. That made most of my aches go away. 3. Besides the short sleep hours, 7 ... Read more

1. I've had a good thing for self care - my dh is now working days instead of evenings. This means that I don't have to stay up to see him and talk to him. But it also means that I am woken up early. In the past I've been able to see ds off ... Read more
