And the rain comes down..the pain goes up!

It's been raining off and on today, which causes my SI joint to swell and my pain to rise. YAY! not. I've caught up with blog reading and email reading and now I'm at a 7, even though I took my medication. I will be going back to bed after I post this.

My depression continues to be better, which gives me a lot of energy and desire to do things. Of course this happens during the few months that the radio frequency wore off and my pain levels are higher so I can't do stuff, not even what I usually do. This leaves me feeling rather frustrated because my mind wants to do stuff and my body can't. This is usually the worst time for me becuase it is when I am apt to push myself or do something that I know I shouldn't do just to make that need feel a bit better. So I am trying to keep myself occupied mentally so that (hopefully) I won't do something I shouldn't and hurt myself.

I had a nice long talk with my friend simi yesterday. I have missed talking with her over the last month. Sadly we were playing phone tag. It was wonderful to talk with her though, she means so much to me. She is having a rough time right now with her lower back and hip so I am worried about her. She has a wonderful doctor helping her though, so that's a good thing.

I talked with Sam today. She is hurting pretty bad because she has been pretty active so far with her boyfriend (playing the wii, going out and such) so she sounded a bit down today. But she was her usual chatty self even with the slight down tone in her voice. She seems to be having a decent time up there so far. She apparently called early today while I was asleep (slept from 10AM to 1:45PM) and ended up talking with her brother Kyle for a while. She surprised me by telling me she enjoyed their conversation and missed him. Apparently he misses her as well and told her that he wants to buy her a newer soul caliber game to replace the one he lost a few years ago. She was very touched by this and told him he didn't have to, but he said he really wanted to do it. That was very sweet of him!

I'm going to take my pain to bed and get some stitching done. I have to remember to take a picture for my stitching blog LOL

  1. *hugs* I'm sorry your pain has decided to try and eat your soul...but hopefully it'll be satisfied with just eating the lint off the floor! :D I love you!


Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
