Having a bad day

Posted by karen00 @karen00, Nov 16, 2019

Hey Ya’ll, I’m starting out with a rough day. I’m not feeling mentally the way I should to be able to fight this. I’m on a new pain medicine and things haven’t been going too well these past few days. I believe it’s because I have fibro as well as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis and the weather has been cold and rainy – a double whammy. I wanted to communicate with fellow pain sufferers who would understand……..Karen

On days when I don't wake up in pain, I review the day before looking for anything I might have done, or eaten, that made me feel better. I haven't found anything yet that correlates. Peggy

@pfbacon Hey Peggy, I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who can’t find any correlation. I thought that I would study anti-inflammatory foods and see if anything adds up. It’s all I know to do – keep looking and never stop!……….Karen

Can't hurt to try … Let us know if you find anything. Peggy

@lioness Hi Ms. Lioness! Well, we’re nearing the end! A couple of weeks of Saturday games, which make for a good weekend. But then——oh no! It seems that every year I end up feeling not so great in February and March. Then the flowers arise and the birds sing and spring is in the air! So I’m going to be on a roller coaster for a little while – but oh how much fun it’s going to be when I’m at the top! ……Karen

@lioness Oh, wow – your painting! I always wished that I could paint. Did you take lessons or were you self taught? What was your inspiration for the piggy bank?
Well, it stopped raining here – maybe it will be a beautiful, clear day tomorrow for football! Who is your team? Mine is Carolina Panthers (since I live in NC). Bad year for them-I hate that they fired their great coach. He could have brought them back this year. The last I heard he was going to be interviewed for the Wash Redskins job.
I wish the games tomorrow were at 1 and 4 instead of 4 and 8. 8 o’clock games just run too late for me!
Have a good sleep!…Karen

I live in Calif. now so still the Steelers are my team . I like all teams except the Patriots lol Have a good night sleep to you and good day . Go Buffalo

I just wanted to say that painting has probably gotten me though all the pain in my home. Me personally I'm healthy. But my husband and 13 yr daughter is rating about a 12 on the pain scale. He's a very very injured veteran and my daughter has a 37 degree spine, scoliosis…which half the doctors didn't believe. But putting my emotional and anxiety from his PTSD has helped me though everything. I just found this sight tonight and I believe it's what I've been looking for. People like me. Please send more pictures. I enjoy them. And I'll send more to. God bless yall.

@karen00 Good for you for starting an investigation on how food affects us. I for one will be interested in what you find out. @lioness has used tumeric tea, or supplements, with some good results. Keep journaling, paying little mind to grammar/spelling/train of thought. Get things out of your mind and it will help, I can attest to that! Take each day as it comes, or each hour if that is what works for you.

I don't know much about your illness. This is all new to me. But recently I started eating all organic everything. Yes it's very expensive but I have noticed a huge difference. And no sugar. Yeah that part sux. Good luck
