Well....Not too much has changed. The good thing is that I'm not a hard 8 right now...I'm in a 7. Good! :o) Theis fibro stuff really wears your body down. I'm still having a hard time getting around the house. I just "grin and bare it." What else is there to do? I still don't feel that I can just sit and talk to anyone about how I really do feel. If asked, I just say, "I'm ok." Because I know deep inside...when someone asks how you are doing...they "really" don't want to know. Maybe soon I'll be able to actually say how I really feel. :o) I can wait...I have all the time in the world. :o)
I think of life itself now, as a wonderful play that I've written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.

Ok....yesterday was not a very good "pain" day for me. :o( I was an 8! Ouchie! I did, however, get a good nights sleep once again....which does help with my pain. But...it hasn't yet this morning. I woke up with pain all over my body. Not good. My right shoulder and arm, my lower back, my left shoulder, and my left hip and leg, and both of my knees! Whew! I think that covered it. Oh...and my right hand is "doing it's own thing" today as well. It's having a lot of muscle spasms today. It's a weird feeling. It's making it a little hard to type. My physical therapist just left...and she said that my right shoulder was very swollen, along with my lower back and left hip. Geesh! Last night...my right arm, my right upper leg, and the right side of my face started having pretty bad muscle spasms too! I'm going to blame it all on this stupid weather we are having. Well...not all of it. :o) It's all a part of my life! :o)

Yesterday was my daughter's 20th birthday. :o) We got her a chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Thats what she's been craving while being pregnant. :o) So cute. :o) My friend came over yesterday, and helped with getting my computer to recognize my digital camera...yay! So now I can show you what my daughter looks like at 6 months. :o) .....as beautiful as always. :o)
I am still having pain in my right shoulder and neck area. My left knee decided to act up on me as well, yesterday. As if my legs weren't enough in pain. And...my lower back was giving me a fit too. My physical therapist will be here this morning...and I just can't wait. It'll hurt, but boy is it worth it. :o)

I got up at 5:00 this morning.....a bit too early. Yesterday..it was 67 degrees out, and sunny, now it's 35, and snowing! Weird weather. My lower back and hips have been hurting me all day yesterday. Now this morning, it's all of that, and my left leg and right arm. It has to be because of the weather.
I read that book; Fibromyalgia for Dummies...and I highly recomend it to everyone. It's in plain english so that everyone can understand it. I'm trying to get my son to read it.....because he is one that still doesn't understand why I can't do certain things on certain days. I've tried to explain that it isn't by my choice that I'm this way. But, he doesn't think that something like fibromyalgia can affect a person so quickly, and in the way that it does. Maybe he has to come to terms with this on his own. thats all for now. :o)

Well....I got up way too early this morning, because of my right arm in so much pain. I got up at 3:00. Bummer. Oh well. This morning, when my husband gets up....we have plans on going back to Wal-Mart to put a crib in lay away for my daughter. I can't wait....because it's the one I want her to have for the baby. :o) My son took her to JC Penny's on Thursday, and baught her a new pair of maternity pants, and an out fit for the baby! :o) That was so sweet of him to do for her. :o) So far....it's been between my son and his girlfriend, and me that has been getting her the things that she needs for the baby and herself. Sad that the father of the baby doesn't...and he lives here! Oh well....she'll one day see what he "hasn't" done for the baby and her.
My pain had gotten so much better since yesterday morning. Whew! :o) I layed down for a nap, and it really helped the pain. Breathing was making my chest hurt, which made my shoulder hurt, and then go down my arm on my right side. Ouch! I'm just thankful that I can breath without it making me in such aganizing pain. :o) Well....thats it for now.

Yesterday started out to be a very stressful time. I really was so stressed, my neck and shoulders started hurting so badly, it felt as if I had whiplash all over again! My pain level was a deffinate 9! I didn't have to testify yesterday. But.....I will on March 17. At least by then, I will be ready for the trial. Whew! I will be able to do my own techniques in relaxation. :o) For my mind and my body. After I came home....got out of my clothes, and into more relaxing pj's, I started to relax so much, I got very tired. :o) Plus, I could feel the pain leave my body, little by little! YAY! Now, I'm just back to my "normal" self of a pain level of 7. :o) Big difference!
I still want to point out that the links I provided 2 entries ago, are a must see! The first link is the best! Just sign up for the information packets, and you'll recieve 3 emails packed full of links, and information. :o) I can't stress it enough....I have learned so much more from doing this myself. I've even put some of the information on my own website. :o)

Today, my stress level is very high. My mom is going to court today, and I need to go with her to help. I'm very nervous. It's not her fault that I feel this way. She is getting a devorce, and I need to be there. I'm sure she is more nervouse then I am. I got so nervouse yesterday, I thought I was going to have a seizure again. Which I suppose wouldn't be all that bad. The last one I had a few weeks ago....ever since then, I've been sleeping better. Seizures are weird that way....my neurologist once told me that everyone should have one, because it helps the brain work better....kind of like rebooting your computer. :o) Oh well. I'll get over this, and move on today like my normal self. I just hope that I can help my mom out as much as I can. :o)
My pain level this morning is already between a 7 and 8. I hope that people that read my last entry, went to the web sites that I provided. :o)
