What was I thinking?
I should know by now that I can't have them in the house.
I had my appointment with the Rheumatologist today and have the "official" Fibromyalgia diagnosis. I did have lower back/hip swelling (which is not due to the fibro) so I had an x-ray... waiting on that.
We are going to start with trying to address my sleep issues then in three weeks I go back to see where I want to start as far as any medications.
It is crazy to me to know how much mental issues/stress can end up presenting themselves physically. But it is nice to know that I have a ground zero and someone (Dr.) who gets the complexity of fibro and who spent nearly 2.5 hours explaining how all my symptoms are connected to each other and connected to the past traumas/PTSD.
Got another big hike in yesterday (not today, today all I got in was cookies) The sun was out but it was cold.
I stood with my face towards the sun for a good five minutes! I felt like a sunflower chasing it. I really need it to be Spring.
Like. Right. Now!
