I just discovered this feature.

Even though I've been "here" for several months, I never saw this before.  I am going to try to keep up.  I know I won't be able to manage daily entries though.  

I've had a number of relapses over the past couple of years.  I have to say, I'm pretty tired of it.  This one was kind of a surprise.  It didn't start off as dramatically as the others did.  It just sort of crept up on me.  I think it's minor.  I'm taking an oral prednisone "pulse" to help.  I really didn't want to take it, but my doctor was pretty insistent that it would help.  

He also wants me to get a power chair.  He told me that last year too.  I've been pretty resistant up to now.  I give up, I really need something to either help me walk better- or maybe I'll have to go the route of the motorized wheelchair.  Medicare and my private insurance will cover a chair, but not the lift that has to be attached to our car.  Not sure where the money will come from.  Oh well...

It's pretty late, and I have over two hours of MRI's tomorrow.  It's going to be a long day.

Hang in there Tammy,

I appreciate your great advice.

I'm always thinking positive despite my 25 broken bones, multiple surgeries and even dieing once on the operating table. I don't allow anything to get me down, especially myself which is the hardest battle.  

Keep your chin up, tell your problems to go away then do your best to ignore them the best you can while you put your energy toward things that make you smile. A smile can go a long way to making you feel better even when the chips are down.

I use a lot of lymph node massage therapy to help with my aches and pains. It's really painful, but after a day or so, the pain and the original pain are completely gone. It's not for the faint at heart so you may not want to try it, but other types feel good too.

Michael
