Doing better.

This morning my physical therapist had to wake me up! Wow! Me? I normally don't sleep so late. Yesturday morning, my son woke me up at 10:00! I can't remember the last time I've ever slept that late! He told me that he was worried about me. Bless his heart. :o) I thanked him. But, I still felt like I could have slept longer! I don't understand the reason why I've been sleeping so late. It could be because I am so exhausted. I do have so much on my mind. I go to bed at 10:00 at night....but I usually get up way before 7:00. Oh well. It doesn't matter...I'm finally sleeping! :o) I looked up the signs of a stroke yesturday...and the symptoms are having a numb leg or arm on one side, dizziness, blurred vision, and trouble speaking and remembering....LOL...I already have that! That goes along with having fibro! :o) Good Grief! That means I wouldn't have the faintest clue if I ever start to have one! lol Yesturday...I did some more relaxation.....a breathing technique. It has been working good for me. :o) If I don't do something...I'll fall to pieces. If I don't laugh about what I have...I'll fall to pieces. So...I do my best to make light of this and live. Thats all I can do. :o)

A good friend of mine had a stoke last May....he was having a horrible headache when it happened. A headache that he had never experienced before. His vision got blurry and he was confused. He was at a store. He got to the hospital quickly.
A stroke is a brain attack like a heart attack only in your brain! A clot blocks the flow of blood to your brain....like a clot blocks the flow of blood to your heart!

He is doing much better now and has returned to his before stroke self about 85%!

Fibro mimics so many other things....it is very scary when you think about it! I ended up in the ER with chest pains a few years ago only to find out that my chest muscles, not my heart, were in spasms from the Fibro. It certainly felt like a heart attack to me!!!!

I have never heard of "greasy blood" before! Does that mean that your cholesteral was high? What can they do for that?

A positive attitude can get us all through the toughest times....and so can our friends!

Know you have a friend in PA....Sheri

Sheri,
Thank you...yes I do know I have a very special friend in PA! :o) The "greasy blood" thing has something to do with my colesterol being very high. At least thats what my copies of the blood tests say.

Again...thank you for your support. :o)
