boy, I'm offline for a few days and there's a new moanin thread!
Erin, hope you got some sleep finally. Marius, good luck w/new job, sounds like it's already better. Joan and Yalinda, hope the feet improve as well as the coughing.
I scanned all the posts, so forgive me if I goofed up on a reply. **
You crack me up, Yalinda! Since T-day is nearing, I would start the planning now. If you think your friend is worried about how you are feeling, then let them (everyone) know you don't want to loose your T-day feat tradition but you just need a little help this year and would like everyone to contribute to it to make it as wonderful as always.
I do enjoy spending time w/family over t-day, but I'm really not big on the traditional food (I know, I'm awful) I keep threatening to have it at my house and order pizza. I hosted twice and ended up having the turkey, etc both times... once I had everyone bring a dish as I was not well myself. Turned out a pizza T-day was too expensive for me at the time! My husband's nephew was bummed - he wanted pizza instead too! ****
hi, I have been very busy...yesterday I walked too much and my feet are killing me. It was nice out and I took a walk in the country. I love to cook too, Yalinda. Today I made a macaroni salad (with salmon, hard boiled eggs and onions). I also made a fresh fruit salad. I did not take a pain pill but instead put my feet up when I got the chance. Want to watch the NOW show on PBS and finish watching a disc I rented from the video shop. Hope my feet feel good tomorrow!
peace on gang
Hee, I forgot about your request! Sure, come on over! I'm sure my husband would ***love*** more immuno-surpressed and "pained" people around here! However, maybe with help, I could finally get this house in order and you'd actually have a place to SLEEP! Not to mention, I'm a rotten cook, hubby would love a decent dinner on a daily basis that was on time before his night shift!
Can I moan about how awful I feel...not awful....but down, depressed, tired, fed up, and not great. I can't tell if I'm getting sick or am just bothered by our bipolar weather here (thanks for the coinage Erin!) or just overly fatigued......whatever it is, it sucks. I'm having those really 'stupid' moments more and more again, guess I'll see what my liver results are on Thursday. Took blood test yesterday - but, I won't be surprised if it's acting up causing some of this.....
<sigh> I need to crawl and hide away for a while....let some other slob take care of my life and put it back in order for me........
If your pain is that bad, can't you get into see your rheumy earlier than Dec. 1st? I know my primary wouldn't touch me with a ten foot pole. She would probably give me a pain killer, but that would be about it. She wouldn't even give me prednisone without clearing it with the rheumy. I know it can be difficult to get into see the specialists, but perhaps even if you can't see him, he could call you in a prescription? My rheumy has done that for me before. Also, did they ever explain your cough? Is it related to your nodules? Can't they give you anything for it? Delsym, OTC, works rather well for me, but it sounds like you may need a narcotic cough suppressant.
I'm still fighting this sinus stuff. Been on antibiotics 4 days now, and don't feel much better. Still have low grade temps, but perhaps they're not that meaningful. It's the horrible sinus headaches that get me. My head feels so heavy, all I want to do is lay down, but the headaches get worse when I'm lying down. Enough whining.
Hope everyone else is groovy.
yalinda, i would get a steroid IM shot when you see your PCP! it can really help with the pain. think about it, it might be a good idea.
seems like we're all on the same cycle. not doing well!
having a great cup of coffee right now!
Erin, so glad you got some sleep - boy do I HURT bad when I can't sleep. What a vicious cycle though! You can't sleep becaues you are in pain, you are in more pain because you can't sleep! It's awful! Good luck with SDI.
Yalinda, for most of the last 10 years I pretty much put my shoes on the moment I got out of bed until the moment I got back in. I'm (thankfully - but only more recently) better than that now......I need the support via a solid cross-trainer sneaker and the orthodics with the extra metatarsil support....In the beginning, I also needed ace bandage support socks, but those I don't rely/need those too often (knock on wood) any more. I also rely heavily on daily stretching (feet, calves, and ankles) to help get my feet through the day. Don't know if any of that will help you out.
I'm doing my best to fight the flu or whatever it is that is going around here, but I feel I'm loosing that battle...must be why I've been a mess the last 4 days or so......
BOB DYLAN TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!
i've got my cowboy boots out! no sleep last nite. so here's to pure adrenaline getting me through! this is going to be heaven! 5th row!!!!!!!!! weeeehoooooo.
