I have been feeling like I am drowning in fatigue. We bought a new mattress 2 days ago, memory foam but on the cheap from w@lm@rt
, and I am beginning to feel human and slightly better rested. I hurt less too. It makes me wonder if we could have afforded the $2000 model instead of one that cost less than 1/6 of that how much better I would feel. I hurt less. I am amazed at the difference.
Oh, and we bought a Wii and Wii fit to go with it. I have done the first 4 yoga exercises to the best of my ability for 4 days. Next week I will add strength training.
I will be going away with my husband this weekend, without our son who is staying with his sisters and grandmas. I am looking forward to our much delayed honeymoon. It has been 7 1/2 years since we married and 9 together. My husband is so understanding about how rotten I feel I am just hoping I feel up to doing stuff while we are away. We have a motel room booked at a place with a big whirlpool and pool. We are going to see a city I have wanted to see for years that is just an hour down the road. Leaving Friday and coming back Monday.
I see the gyn tomorrow about how heavy and irregular my periods have become since I began flaring last fall. I see the kidney specialist Wednesday about my fluid retention. I am planning to ask him to do something more than lasix since I am looking at years on prednisone and lasix doesn't help with prednisone.
