Sorry...was away for a few weeks with another bout of food poisoning...my second one in 6 months...Just awful! Nothing worse in my eyes as stomach/intestinal demons! ahhh...Sleeping on the bathroom floor...no food for days but salt water and ginger tea....blecchhhh..at least my doggy slept on the floor with me:)
But...now that I feel better and have my appetite back..it also helps my pain levels as I am giddy with feeling healthier!!
Then I try to do so much..like clean the house...walk the dog..go shopping for things for my friend coming to stay for a week...visit my mom, then my neck goes..."ohhh...you can't forget me for too long...nice try though!"
Just wanted to say that as horrible as it was those last weeks with my whole body shutting down...it makes my regular pain seem more tolerable now...
Reading the posts to catch up on everyone's weeks and have been saying prayers for appts. procedures/surgeries for you all...
