Update on how things are going.

Pain is the word of the week.

Storms are moving in once again. This is my bad time of the year for those who don't know. When storms move in fibro hits me hard. In this part of the country it is hurricane season. From now until November i tend to have bad weeks. This week it is calling for thunderstorms the entire week! Bangs my head against the wall. lol Ok guess i wont do that because i do not need my head hurting more then it already does. But sheeshhhhhhhh already, i want sun!

On top of that i talked with my doctor, and he wants me to go on a full time program of detoxing. He feels that i do not get rid of toxins like the average person does. Most people naturally absorb toxins from the environment, and they naturally get rid of these toxins through sweat or urine. I however do not do this. So the toxins just build up in my body making me sicker then most. This is his theory anyway. Makes sense to me. Anyway he would like me to do a major detoxing program once again, only this time instead of getting off the program after three weeks, i will continue on a daily program of detoxing in small doses. He feels that this will help me get rid of all the toxins like everyone else. Making it so i do not have a build up of toxins in my body. :) His thought is that eventually i will start feeling better, and not be so sick during detox, because i will have less toxins to rid from my body. This is also hopefully the key to getting my thyroid to work right! Lets pray that he is right.

In the mean time between detoxing, and storms moving in I hurt all over! I am having a hard time thinking, or doing much of anything. Pain makes a person tired all of the time. All i want to really do is sleep. I have been forcing myself to keep up with the house, make dinner for my guys, to also get out and accomplish errands that need to be done, and to continue with my painting. My energy feels sapped truthfully. I am praying that these three weeks go by fast..... and that i will feel better soon.

Hugs and blessings to all. I will be slowly making rounds to all your blogs. Know you are all missed! Hugsssssssss

Those sunflowers are lovely! I love your artwork. I hope that you find comfort during the storms...

keepers said...

this weather pattern has got to be terrible for you so we can only wish you fast relief. starting tomorrow we are expecting rain for 4 days in a row so the loss of the sun will not be too keenly appreciated here either! maybe we should move to a sunny climate, like the desert?

peace and blessings

Hi Tracy,

I'm sorry that this is a difficult time for you, and that the weather can affect you like that. I hope that the detoxing with work, and will say a prayer.

You just left a comment on my other blog. I now have the same post (just added one sentence) at my regular blog. Do you mind if I transfer your comment over to my regular blog? Or maybe your could? It's a good comment and I don't usually hear that side of things. I think that I might close my new blog for now, or at least not advertise it. I don't want it to start out on a controversial note.

Thanks ;o)

Tracy said...

Thank you everyone for your comments. I have been feeling pretty sick, and have been pretty down. Knowing you all care has helped! Hugs to each and everyone of you!

I am SO sorry and know how storms affect fibro! No fun! I have done detoxes and it has helped tremendously although in the middle of them it is also not fun! Good luck and I hope the weather changes soon. REALLY, we should be weathermen because if you are like me, we can predict storms and rain WAY better than the guy on the 6 o'clock news!!!!

Many hugs,
