Depression can be a side effect of fibromyalgia, but don't think they considered it. Anti-depressants are the only thing they haven't given me this last month (or at least that is how it feels). When this started (and without pain meds) I couldn't grip a door knob or make the 6 inch step into my office without taking it very slow & holding onto the wall. Every joint aches & my skin feels sunburned in different places at times. The burning comes & goes. May last 5 minutes or an hour. Can be in one place or multiple. Hard to explain, but pure missery. I opted out of most conventional medicine when I discovered my liver cyst a few yrs ago. My chiropractor has been able to treat me with adjustments & acupuncture to keep me off most meds. But in recent months no relief after multiple attempts from my FABOULOUS chiropractor. I really prefer to avoid meds, but for now I need them. When the last of my blood test are back in a few wks guess I will get a treatment plan instead of just treating all the vague symptoms. My Dr is FABOULOUS the best one I have ever had in 13 yrs here. She will even call up @ dinner time going I thought of another test we could try & she really wants to find what is wrong & fix it.
Alexis is sleeping & looking pretty miserable from getting her teeth pulled. Taron says she is going to take a nap too-- said she had a rough day. Silly girl sat at her dads office while I went to my apt.
Anyone in the market for chicks, atwoods has all their brooders set up, they must be getting chicks in the AM.
For dinner tonight I made something new in the crockpot..... Smells so yummy! Even smelled good when I mixed it up this AM. http://www.food.com/recipe/crock-pot-carnitas-326866
Joe that's a BUNCH of ribbons. Think you may need to build a trophy room before you go to any more shows! WOW
I've been reading about fibromyalgia (did I even spell that right??) and it really does sound like what you have as far as the pain, etc. I had no idea-I didn't know you didn't feel good! I've always envied how energetic you are, I can't do half of what you do without crashing. I imagine the work load would be a lot less if you moved back into town....but we all know who would be the one *arranging the move, packing, organizing and all the other stuff. You'd be so worn out from moving back into town you'd have to rest for months. I hope they figure out what it is, that's its simple and that they can fix it.
Joe, that's awesome about your son winning with his birds!!!
