I was so careful this past week! I paid attention to pacing myself…..making sure that I took a nap….did gentle stretching…..took a few bathes….I used my handicap parking to shorten walks…..used either an electric cart or had my hubby push me in a wheelchair when we had to go shopping.
Almost two weeks with the additional medication! It definitely has improved my sleep. I don’t feel my body at night.
It is now Saturday….and I have not felt this “good” in a very long time! Does that mean that I am pain free? Does it mean that I am walking without any problems? Of course not! What I am “enjoying” today is a level that is tolerable. My arms hurt and ache…..my legs are a little heavy. I do not have the burning all over.
I am very tired. I have taken a couple naps and allowed myself to sleep in this morning. I have just taken my time…..and allowed myself to relax today.
Tomorrow I hope to attend Mass……I would like to walk for about 5 minutes too!
I know these are high expectations! LOL At least I have today……a respite to enjoy!

That’s good to pace yourself like that, as to not over do it. I’m that all or nothing kind of person, so I do nothing or I go and go as if driven by a motor and the next thing I know I’m out of commission for weeks or even months. I am working on it in therapy, though. Good luck. xx 🙂
