Health Update Thursday(6/28)

I wish there was good news to share with you all, but again, not much new to report this week from the past few. Still spending most of my days in bed only to relocate for the detox baths I now take daily or the footbath I'm supposed to do 2 to 3 times daily.

I was able to sit on the couch in the front room of our house yesterday for two whole hours while the fam caught up with our So You Think You Can Dance, but needed to quickly lay down and take some aspirin because the ovary pain got pretty bad.

This has been a particularly bad month for the left-hand side ovary pain and the only things I've found that help, if only a little bit, are chewable baby aspirin and heat.

I still have a week or so to go until Tom is expected, so I suppose we'll see how things hold up; I have a nagging feeling this is going to be a doozy, but I'm trying to maintain a positive outlook.

Unfortunately, the family has planned a trip up north to my aunt's cabin in Northern Wisconsin four or so hours away and I still don't know If I'm going to be able to go. One, because my period is expected when we plan on being up there and I don't know how that's going to go and two, that car trip is rough even when I'm doing good.

When I'm in excruciating pain, I just can't do it.

So that's still up in the air right now.

Global body pain. Exhaustion. Trouble sleeping. Depression. Feeling sick all the time...

Oh, and on top of all that, we potentially have a mold situation in our house. Currently, we are waiting to have my sister's window replaced because that's where it is originating from (or so we believe). We've always wondered if the house was part of my problem so I suppose we will find that out when the time comes.

In the mean time, I'm hanging in there. Thankfully I have my online world to keep me busy and my friends to keep a smile on my face!

Sweet {HUGS}

If it's any consolation, this week I'm having severe cramps too. Yesterday were so bad that I threw up, but then the pain killers kicked in and I feel ok. I can't imagine being so bad ALL the time, I think I'd loose my mind, so, as always, I express my admiration for you!

Oh Kayla,
I am so sorry they haven't found a cure for Lyme yet. I do pray you feel better!

I hope you'll get long bits of relief sweet girl.

The period can be a doozy too. I become a witch all over then. Hunched like hunchback of Notredame! etc.

You really are an inspiration. I'm always awe struck to see others such as yourself who walk through normal daily life in physical and emotional agony. I continue to hold you in my thoughts & prayers. God bless you, Sweetie! Hugs...lots of hugs to you! ^.^

Baby girl, if it's after the 11th your family wants to go you can come to my house and I'll take care of you. I'll have had my shots by then and I'll be in good shape to wait on you hand and foot. We'll have a blast! PJ party every night. Oh, and I hear cranberry juice is good for the ovaries I think or was that kidneys. hmmm I don't remember. Sorry wish I could help. Sending my healing angel over to you tonight maybe she can help! hugsssss CM

Poor thing... I sure hope you feel better soon. It really sucks that you're feeling so lousy and may miss out on your visit with your family.
Here's lots of hugs and love from me, CA. =)
