…after seeing my doctor last week and reviewing a crazy amount of blood work results … I’m being proactively treated for Lyme Disease (I came up positive under only one indicator for Lyme – and I live in an area where there are HIGH cases of it – so rather than wait, I’m on an antibiotic for a month.) – and my doctor feels that my pain, the locations of the pain, fatigue, brain fog, and the fact that I’m Epstein Barr Virus positive (I have been for many years) – that I could have Fibromyalgia.
I also have a follow up mammogram ultrasound this month, and he wants to check my gallbladder via ultrasound after the IBS issues I’ve been experiencing (before he has me do a colonoscopy.).
I’ve been reading a lot about Fibromyalgia – and how important exercise is to help with the pain. I need to look into yoga again – something slow to help my shoulders. But I hurt too much right now to start – and really hoping for a little relief so I can get myself going.
Then to top it off…Theresa is now sick with Strep. She’s had some bad swelling and hives – the after being seen at an urgent care location and being prescribed amoxicillin (which she’s always taken for illness) – she had a bad reaction last night and we went to the ER. She’s possibly allergic now to amoxicillin and they switched her over to a Z-Pack. She’s doing much better today – and the amoxicillin from yesterday is almost out of her system.
So Theresa’s home today from school recuperating and resting – and I’m so relieved that she’s doing better.
I’m going to look at it that things can only get better from here … 🤞🏻 Right?
All I want to do is get us both healthier and then get to finish editing my first few YouTube videos to get posted on my channel. I just need some magic fairy dust to get me all put back together!
Thank you for your concern and prayers! I adore you all so much!
