EVERYTHING HURTS 😢
I’m not feeling super well today. My arthritis and fibro are flaring. I’d like to stay in bed all day, but I have a root canal procedure (ugh) in an hour.
I was up a pound on the scale today, and I know it’s from inflammation. I can feel it AND see it. My left knee is huge.
I’m going to be gentle with myself today. That’s all I can do.
I spend way too much time at Barnes West Co Hospital.
My knees are all swollen, but we can’t switch up the meds, so I got cortisone shots in both knees. Damn those are a bitch, but they have worked well in the past, so it’s worth the pain.
I’ve been told I can’t run again until Saturday, which sucks because I’m past my NOPE weight according to the doctor’s scale. Ugh. So I guess I’ll just work what I can control: portion sizes, what I eat and drink, water intake, and tracking. That’s all more effective anyway.
My joints, particularly my knees, really hurt today, and I’m overall kind of bummed about a variety of shitty cancer treatment related side effects. I’m hoping that hanging with C&J tonight will distract me enough that I’ll forget about it for a while.
This shit is fucking me up.
At least my headache is mostly gone. I’ve learned that taking my allergy meds before bed helps me feel much better in the morning.
It’s exhausting living inside of this body.
I was able to run without stopping/walking.
And then I went home and grabbed the dog for a walk.
My only regret is forgetting my knee braces.
Psoriatic arthritis is a bitch. But whatcha gonna do?
And please don’t make me crazy sick in the process.
Send me all the good vibes, please. ❤️
My new meds will be delivered on Tuesday! Woot!! Finally.
I had to have a chat with the specialty pharmacist and it was sort of odd. My takeaway is that I should try to not get sick (lol ok duh), and also avoid grapefruit juice. Apparently, he’s going to call me once a month. Sigh. These fucking biologicals are no joke.
He was like: on a scale from 0 to 10, 0 being not at all and 10 being perfect, how well do you feel your condition is being managed?
Him: So you’re saying there’s room for improvement? Haha.
This guy has jokes. Great. 🙄
Still though…this is excellent news.
