Just hanging in there. :o)

Well...yesterday was one of my worse days in a long time. It was 100 degrees out, but still so thankful for the central air. I had a hard time even to just walk. And thats using my walker as well. My pain level was deffintly a very hard 9. I showed my daughter the large muscle cramps in my left leg, and it was pretty gross to her. Yes, it is, but if only others could honestly know what just that part feels like. Now my whole face is cramping up. Thats such a weird feeling as well. It hurts. This morning I don't have a place on my body that doesn't have a cramp. I have them in my sides, hands, feet, everywhere. I'm in a lot of pain right now. At least I did get 9 and 1/2 hours of sleep last night! Yay! I don't remember when the last time I got that much sleep. It's finally raining here. It has dropped the temperature to 66 degrees. :O) Yay! Feels great! :o) I am still dealing with the same stress that I have been. I'll figure out a way to help it somehow. I was checking my money situation and I won't be able to get that pool I wanted to get, like a friend said would be a good idea, and so did my physical therapist as well. Because since I can't get in and out of my tub, it would have helped. I'll wait until next month. I also am not able to get the body wrap for my skin elasticity. I've lost so much weight, I have skin just hanging. Yikes! Again, next month. See, one of the medicines the doctor put me on isn't covered by my insurance, so I have to pay for it, and it's $190.00! So, that really puts a cramp in my money situation now. But it's worth it. I am hoping that today holds a better day for me...including the stress. The heat and the stress is a bad mix right now, and making me hurt. I'll get over this wave too. :o) Blessings to you all. :o) ..............There may be more to learn from climbing the same mountain a hundred times than by climbing a hundred different mountains.

Dear Lisa,
I am so sorry to hear you are having a rough time. But you definetly need to get the stress down or better yet gone. I am working on getting mine gone. I know I have to in order to feel better.
Our temp here this morning was 58 feels great but I know it won't last.
I didn't get in my pool yesterday and that may be why I feel yucky this morning. I also slept good last night a whole 10 hours. But feel like I need more.
Keep hanging in there and remember we all here for you.
Blessings back to you.
Dianne

Dianne,
I loved your idea of the pool! I told my physical therapist about it, and she absolutly agreed with the idea! :o) I also want to thank you so much for being so supportive. It helps so much. :o) Yes, boy am I trying to get rid of this stress. The problem is, it(the stresser) lives in my house! Yikes! Thank you again. :o)
