Good morning Sore42long & Laura!
I undertstand what you both are saying! I have good days and bad days, and sometimes it runs by the hour. Many times I have felt great, and then within a couple of hours....just crashed and felt horrible....no ryme or reason to it!
Sore, again,...... I think you are doing fine, and we see you pushing yourself as much as you can.....hang onto that hope as much as possible.
This last Friday. was the third weekend that my wife and I went out to see a movie...and to tell you the truth I dreaded the thought of it. Many times I have felt good at mid-day, and made the decision to go out on a date later that evening...only to find when the time came...it was more than a chore...because of high pain levels.
Since my Dr made the adjustment to my med's, it has been more of a comfort making plans with the wife. I have to mention that our grandson certianly has added some joy to the mix! He snuggles right up to me in bed....I just love the little squirt!
Grab the joy and fun in life when you can,....and store it in your memory for those time when pain is blocking your hope.
....and come back here to get a recharge! Great members, and a life saving forum!
