Today is a rough day. I forgot when I did the post a couple days ago, another one of the problems I'm having is periodic fevers. I had one last night and I woke up with a swollen mouth. I missed church because I felt so bad. Sometime this afternoon I took an ibuprophen. 800mg of ibuprophen is really my drug of choice. Most days it make me feel so much better. Unfortunately it also seems to make me retain fluid and slowly but surely my blood pressure goes up. So I don't take it that often. I think the inflamation is causing the fever and the hair loss. Oh yeah that started again too. I have another spot about as big as a quarter. It's been easily a year since I got the first one. I guess these are all the joys of fibromyalgia. Today is just one of those days. On the whole thigs have been good...

Changing Locations

I moved. That was problem one of the hardest things I have done in a long time. It's definitely one of the roughest things for my Fibromyalgia. I didn't realize how set in my ways I had become. The new place has more steps and they are steeper. In the beginning that made me hurt more. The furniture sits on the floor differently. I was just in serious pain for the first month. I'm in my third month in my new place. Slowly things are getting better. I still hurt alot and had to rearrange things at the house so they worked a little easier. I moved for alot of reasons. I had lived in a country town to raise my last three children. The last one turned 18 years old the end of last school year. He was starting college in the neighboring city. I also have one daughter with Autism and two of the three grandchildren living in the city, Lake Charles, that I am now in. Then I'm getting older and my daytime job is here. So I moved. I hope I don't regret it. I haven't so far. Anyway, that's my update for today. I will try to be more diligent about blogging about my efforts to deal with Fibromyalgia.
