What A Week


This past week had its ups and downs:

Ups

  • Pain has lessened, walking slowly
  • Was finally able to start wearing sweats again, as the tenderness in my legs calmed down a bit
  • Had Acupuncture appointments that I think really helped me get stronger and calmed symptoms
  • Really embraced the Mediterranean  Diet, Im really enjoying planning meals abound vegetables vs. proteins, no red meat, no chicken yet
  • Shakes 3x a day made with blueberries, bananas, strawberries and spinach yummers
Downs
  • waking up 3x a night to apply ointment and pee
  • pain is unpredictable and random
  • have a fleshy lump on collarbone that is typical due to steroid use pic below, no pain, just gross looking
  • Nails are getting thicker ugh
  • hand skin is waxy and thick
  • still really itchy
  • need naps daily, due to fatigue

I am continuing to take care of myself, praying alot, in many people's prayer groups, shout out to my good friend Awilda Cruz for keeping me in her thoughts and prayers (prayer warrior extraordinaire)
