Tuesday: Just in time for the holidays and for my little girl’s ninth Birthday, I am having the flare from hell. It started with me going off my Lyrica, my three-year-old being sick and a friend passing away so I’m not sure which of these things are to blame or if it is the combination of the three. I’ve slowly stepped down from the Lyrica so it is not like I just went cold turkey. Thanks to my hubby and kids for keeping up on the dishes for me. I just tried to load the dishwasher and didn’t even get halfway done. I can barely raise my arms so hopefully a little rest will allow me to finish. Good thing the kids are off after today for Thanksgiving Break or else laundry would be piling up even higher than it is.
Wednesday: I am on day two of this post because my arms wouldn’t allow me to type anything further. My Katie helped me “finish” what I could of the dishes yesterday and today the kids helped me start laundry. I am so thankful that I got Katie’s birthday presents done when I did, before my arms went floppy and the pain doubled. After 9 days of being in a flare I am hoping that this one is almost done. I was going to do some meditation-sewing today but it is really hard to focus on anything else when I am this tired and when my house is in tornado-mode. My arms are done with typing. In case I don’t get to post again for Thanksgiving, I hope everyone has a wonderful day with their family and friends.
