How is everyone doing?
This board has been kind of quiet this past week and I am just wondering how everyone is doing?
We had a great 4th of July celebration on Monday but I have been paying for it yesterday and today. That always happens. We spent the day at our local American Village. I was on my feet from 12 noon until about 8pm that night. For my Fibro, that's a long day to be walking about in the hot heat. I was hurting pretty bad by the time we got home Monday night. I pretty much walked in and collapsed into bed.
My pain levels in my legs and arms have been really high yesterday and today and it's hurting pretty bad to just get up and walk around. I knew it would though so nothing surprising. I always have a time of recuperating after a big day like that. I do miss the days when that wasn't the case. Yet, I am thankful that I can still spend a full day like that out with the family, even though it means not being able to function for a good portion of the week following.
Outside of my pain levels being really high right now, everything else is ok at the moment. My IBS isn't flaring up along with many of my other symptoms, and for that I am thankful. I really need to get groceries. We are out of everything right now but I am just not up to making the big monthly trip right now so we are winging it this week. Bryan brought home pizzas last night. I am hoping by the end of the week that I will feel well enough again to get out of the house.
How is everyone else doing?
