First, Thank you Amy, for helping me with the board. I deeply appreciate it!!! Also, thank you for caring and giving me support. These days I do not have a lot of support, so your kindness has helped.
I am still dealing with a lot of pain and exhaustion, which is greatly contributing to my depression. I wake up struggling to get awake. I wake up so stiff and that takes energy to get moving. It usually takes me 2 hours to feel less stiff. A hot shower helps some with that. By 3-4pm I am done for the day. However, I did find a new pain doc and I see him on May 26 and I see a new pdoc on May 26. Worried about how these docs will turn out. I sure hope they have something to offer that will help me.
Still going to physical therapy and trying to make an appointment to get reflexology. I am going to try and do a few sessions of reflexology, if the lady will call me back to set up an appointment. I may have to find some place else to go if she does not call me back soon. I am also looking into yoga classes for those with back problems. Until then I am doing stretches at home and the exercises my physical therapist gives me to do at home.
I am reading the book by Jillian Michaels, "Master Your Metabolism". I want to try and eat healthier and lose a lot of weight, but I know this will take a good amount of time, so I need to be patient. I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I think Jillian's book is good and will help me. I am also trying to find an Endocrinologist to see so I can get tested to see what is happening with my hormones and everything.
I do not have control over somethings in my life, like my living situation, but I do have control over somethings, so it is time to take control where I can.
I start back to school on Monday, so I know that will use up the little energy I have, but maybe it will help in some way too.
I will try and check in and respond to posts as often as I can.
I hope everyone is well. I see that a lot of old timers are not posting, so I am hoping this means you are doing wonderful and do not need to post.
