Scary outing

Nov 07, 2015 12:32 PM

Today is the day I've been "planning" for two weeks☺
We all know how planning for anything goes for a fibromite. I woke this morning feeling rather good tho, so I'm going forward, yay!
Looking at the hr and a half drive to and from, and activities between tho, reeeally has me wary. I've taken none of my pain meds today, not even OTC (applause, applause) and don't want to have to till bedtime. Realistically tho, I suppose I'd better at least carry them with, huh?
Anyway, every good thought sent my way will be appreciated! Smiles to you all.☺☺

Yep We have to be better prepared than a Boy Scout! Pack drugs, lots of water, 2carb to 1 protien snack. You can do it (just don't over do it!) 😍

LatchTina, it's always a good idea, even if you don't want to take them until bedtime, to carry some with you. Your body will start to stress if your pain levels climb and you have nothing with you to bring them down. Try not to overdo even if you feel pretty ok. (That's when we get ourselves in trouble and end up having days of recovery to get back on track). Enjoy your outing, be careful driving and most of all, smike and have FUN. Sending {{{{Hugs}}}} and prayers that you have a great time. 🌻🙏🏻😊

LatchTina, I'm sorry I wasn't online to wish you a happy putting! I was on one myself. Sadly I forgot my tremor medicine, so my hands was doing quite a crazy dance as I held onto my rollator walker. But I made it home and was so exhausted I slept through the night until 9:39 yesterday morn. Of course I had to take a muscle relaxer with the pain meds, and use Voltaren gel. Lol. I oppose you had an enjoyable time! 🙏🌼

It's perfect tly ok! I do appreciate your reply tho! And I trust your outing was great as well? Yes, I've found my off the chart pain today, again. Been unable to tolerate much of anything. But Mondays are always extreme for me, bc at this time, I'm still pushing to keep up my hubby and my music ministry; playing piano, sometimes drums, and leading music in church. Sundays are mad hard on my body, so Monday is usually my "tread carefully" day😉
Hope your evening is peaceful and restful!
