Exclamation Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

So glad that this semester has finally come to an end.

The stress of the route I drove the past two semesters proved to be too much for my physical (and emotional) health.

My chronic pain levels went off the chart, and I now have pain in joints I did not have pain in before.

The anger and frustration from all the reckless drivers I encountered caused my blood pressure to become elevated.

Not to mention the deep depression and despondency brought on by all the extra pain.

Here's hoping that most of this corrects itself now that I'm no longer driving THAT route.

Needless to say, I won't ever pick it ever again.

My pain is off the charts. The fog is so bad I feel like the Scarecrow in Wizard of Oz (no brain).

I am considering medical MJ but know nothing about it. I have heard that its expensive here. I have a small rx for a low dose opiate but I am not comfortable with this being the treatment option.

Yesterday & Today Be Like ...

Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

Kinda gotta accept the blame though, because ...

What studies have shown about sugars and how they impact inflammation and pain are soooo true!

I treated myself to a turtle sundae at Culver's on Wednesday and BAM!!!

Just like that ... Ow! Ow! Ow!

I will have to reserve treats like that for very rare and special occasions!

Is and isn't kinda worth it in a conflicted sort of way ... Know what I mean?

I think I may have and abdominal hernia again but one that goes in and out. The one I had in 2013 was only found during exploratory surgery because they never were able to feel it on examination. So I am going to make an appointment but I worry that I will be told its nothing. Like I feel it especially when I use the bathroom (sorry). Would a cat scan show it?
