Health Update Thursday(4/24)

I'm not going to sugar coat things for you, my dearest fans and readers.

Things with my health have been downright horrible for the past week and a half to two weeks or so. So much so that a lot of crying has been done because there's really nothing else I can do to make myself feel better. I'm literally doing everything I can think of to help, but to no avail.

I've been reduced to bed due to severe leg weakness and pain. Thankfully I'm still able to (slowly) get around whenever I'm feeling brave enough to endure the pain with the use of ol' rollin' blue (my walker).

Of course I'm expecting the woman's monthly gift ridiculously awful curse so that's sending my body into all sorts of rebellion and not-so fun things. Plus the fear that it strikes into my heart and soul every month causes me to stress out to no end.

Then, as if that all wasn't bad enough, the insomnia has kicked back in and sleeping is a nightmare (no pun intended). Especially that coupled with the severe amounts of pain I'm in; it's a wonder I get any sort of sleep at all!

Speaking of pain, among everything that I'm going through currently, they don't even hold a candle to the crazy amounts of pain my body has to endure day in and day out. It's gotten so bad that I'm living on OTC and prescription pain medicine, both of which don't even work anyway. I'm trying anything and everything natural I can think to try: teas, creams and ointments, vitamins and minerals, diet, herbs, baths and footbaths....

If you guys have any ideas for me, I'm more than open!

I have a doctor's appointment coming up in the beginning of May so we'll see what that brings.

Now it's just a matter of holding in there, continuing my efforts, and trying to keep myself busy until this passes.

And of course watching The Ellen Show cause laughter is, after all, the best medicine!
