The low down

10



So, I had amazing plans to post at least three times a week over this holiday season. I said to myself, "Self, you can't leave your friends hanging! They need to read!" But, I seem to be having trouble with even three times a week. Yesterday, the doctor upped my Lyrica from 75mg to 225mg and folks, I feel like I'm in space, all slow moving and quite disconnected. On top of that, I am to start injections in my back to help control pain, and that's scary! The Dr. assured me that this will help, but it's just a scary thought- getting shots in your back! I don't like these things, not one bit. Plain and simple, Fibromyalgia is this ugly, life succubus, and right now, it's winning.

This is the plan- I will get use to this higher dosage in a couple of weeks, and hopefully get back to a regular posting schedule. If I get a break from the foggy brain, I will post, but don't count on it!

And, since it is the holidays, I hope you all will be out, make wonderful memories with family and friends, and not have to be on the computer as much, so I don't feel quite as bad! Have a blessed Holiday season, my friends!

  7. Oh girl you certainly need to take care of yourself before you worry about the blog! You already do way too much with Prayerful Bloggers and your Etsy shop! You're like super woman or something. Take it slow and I promise we won't mind. :) I'm still praying for you, Dear Friend! Praying the injections work, the pain subsides, and you'll get to enjoy the season a little bit.
