I haven’t been well

A lot of times we parents don’t get a break, and I’m blessed that I have such a supportive husband who does everything he can to make sure I DO get a break and get some rest when I’m not well. Unfortunately, he has his own medical issues, of course, from the chemo, so we always joke that we’re quite the pair! haha For the past 2 weeks I really haven’t been well. I’m hoping it hasn’t been reflected in my most recent posts, but I know it’s been pretty obviously OUTSIDE the blogosphere. It started a couple of weekends ago where I just felt like I was BURNING UP all day. I had a fever but no idea why! Unfortunately, when I’m not feeling very well I fail to get other things done – one of which was calling in a refill for one of my regular medications for my Fibromyalgia. It was the holiday weekend, so by the time I was actually able to pick it up (3 business days basically per the refill system on post) I was already deep in side effects from not taking it – dizziness, nausea, and just overall feeling BLAH. I was SO emotional and was trying really hard to keep up with everything I had going on – homeschooling, blogging, taking the kids to therapy, house, pets, etc. without falling apart! It was rough! I had a couple of emotional meltdowns and had to step back a bit while still keeping up with my obligations, of course!

During all of this I also had some medical test for some “woman issues.” Don’t worry, I’ll spare the details! I started one treatment to help the intense pain I have, but it was actually much worse over the past week than it has been! I even contemplated going to the Emergency Room, and if you don’t know me that well, that’s a big deal. I’m pretty stubborn about NOT going to a Dr when I don’t have to. I have to see enough of them on a regular basis as it is! Luckily, the pain subsided the day after it peaked. It’s still bothering me some, and I may have to cancel a biopsy I’m supposed to have on Monday depending on certain factors. I already canceled it last week due to said factor. So, as far as these issues go, I just have to take it one day at a time right now.

This pretty much sums out how I’ve been feeling:

I try not to make important decisions during these times because my emotions can weigh more heavily in my decisions, which isn’t always a good thing. I have a lot of decisions to make, though, because a lot of changes are coming our way. Most I don’t have to make RIGHT NOW, though, so I’m trying to remind myself it’s OK if I take a mental break. I also try not to take things too personally that are said to me because I’m extra emotional, but that can be really hard, and there were quite a few things that bothered me probably a lot more than they should! Ok, DEFINITELY a lot more than they should!

And today? Today I woke up with a sore throat and a cough. I know, I know take my supplements. I always do. I’m just a wreck right now. I did take something that helped, and I’ll be doing a review and giveaway for it soon! 😉 And it’s homeopathic! I already feel so much better! Plus, I know many have been praying for me, which always helps – and means a lot to me! So, I’m going to take it a little easier than usual today but still trying to get stuff done! I do hope it hasn’t been reflected in my blog, but if it has, I wanted to share why! Hopefully I’ll be better soon! 🙂

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that you are not well. There is so much going around right now, always harder in the winter when everyone is inside sharing germs. I hope it’s nothing serious and I hope you fell better soon. You are lucky to have a supportive husband. When I get sick, he makes a dash for the garage and stays there, haha

    I am praying for you and me! I have fibro too, so I know how bad that pain ban be. For me, it can debilitating at times. I am blessed with an understanding, loving, supportive hubby as well and it makes a big difference on the days when you can’t brush your hair, much less anything else of consequence. Take one day at a time,
