I am experiencing my first severe relapse of symptoms in years, started last Sunday, At first I just thought I had a tiring day, By tuesday symptoms full blown, I struggled through work until Thursday, Cried all the way home, brain fog made me feel stupid and slow. Called in sick on Friday. Can't get in to see my Doc til Thurs.
I was doin so well, was pretty much symptom free and had worked very hard on my health to get there. Was very discouraged.
In an effort to keep my spirits up, I thought it might be good to post a thread about our positive feelings and thoughts.
So here goes,
On Sat, I felt very loved and appreciated. My Dau-in-law came over early and helped me in my new kitchen, we had purchased new appliances last week, and I was too miserable to enjoy them. She helped me focus on the tasks, and did a whole lot of cleaning.
She brought ribs for the crockpot, we canned a few pickles, and slow cooked marinara sauce from the garden tomatoes.
I felt bad sitting resting while she cleaned, but I have helped her before too, young mother of 3 that she is.
My son went to the store and stocked my vitamins with good stuff.
My husband has been very understanding but their efforts really cheered me.
I made myself get in the pool, was kinda nervous cause I was kinda dizzy, but my husband was out in the Garden closeby.
The cool water felt great on my achy shoulders, as I floated around on a noodle and relaxed.
Last Sunday seemed like a lifetime ago when the G-kids were over and we were all splashing and playing.
My grandaugter is looking forward to having a birthday pool party in two weeks, she's turning 4 and loves to play in Nana's pool. Hope I can do it. Don't want to let her down.
