Oh my goodness – It appears that the Naturally Healthy Aussie is facing one set back after another. About two months ago – after experiencing one pain after another I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I was also Xrayed for arthritis – which has set up house in my fingers, wrists neck and back – along with damage caused by my most recent job. Suddenly – after a lot of Internet research, everything made sense!
Last year I eradicated a tumour from my brain. Now I get to fight of Fibromyalgia. I have been following doctors orders for to the last few months but now I can think clearly and do things again – I will be looking at ways to permanently and naturally delete the newest demon! I also need to work on fighting as much damage as possible that is manifesting itself as Arthritis. The problem with fibromyalgia is thinking through fibrofog!
The a Doctor gave me a prescription for Panadeine Forte last week and I have only been using it when absolutely necessary. Today was one of those days when I needed the full dose. It felt so great being pain free that I really got into the garden. Weeding, replanting, digging. All well and good until this afternoon when the pain killers started to wear off and I discovered I had strained a muscle in my side :(.
Now I am sitting down writing and realizing that I can be totally miserable – thinking about not being able to do things and not being able to play much outside. Or – I can think about all the writing and research opportunities I now have because I can’t do much else! I guess the glass is half full after all!
