I’ve Been Gone

I was so excited when I started this blog.  I had so much energy.

Now, for the last couple of months, I’ve had a fibro flare.  It started with just a bit of tiredness.  Then that got worse.

Now, I’m having horrid, unbearable pain.  Well, not totally unbearable, as I’m bearing it.  But it’s bad.  Since about 1998, the pain has been pretty much under control with medication.  I’ve had a few episodes of breakthrough pain that last a few days at a time.

This pain started two months ago and is not giving me a break.

The doctor who treats me for Lyme decided to tell me to try taking fewer pain meds.  I did this, thinking he knew what he was talking about.  He didn’t.  After going down just 15 mg., the pain came and it has stayed.  I really dislike this man right now.  I’m working very hard on not hating him and not getting angry at him.  I’m trying to be able to handle my feelings towards him with trying to learn.  The lesson from this?  Don’t listen to doctor’s who give advice about areas where they know nothing.

I was doing so well.  I was able to get out of bed and go out for up to four hours at a time.  I always had to rest the next day, but I was getting out.

Not now.  I’m at home, in bed, in severe pain.

At least I can paint on the computer.  It takes me away for a while.
