Slacking? Me? Never!

Okay, I'll admit it I'm way behind on my posts. I barely made it through last week, and here we are halfway through another week! Luckily? wait that's not the correct term here. Excuse me for a moment, my brain kind of like my computer froze. I'm in bed where I have been for the past two days. I seem to have caught an evil bug that has taken over my body. My head feels like someone has taken a hammer to it. I feel like someone is sitting on top of me and I have run a marathon. Run a marathon? I wish! my nose, wait! We don't want to talk about that on here!

This on top of a flare, I'm not sure if it's RA, Lupus or Sjogren's, at this point it really doesn't matter does it? I have a deep stabbing, aching pain in my joints. My fingers are tight and stiff. I am cold to the core. Who turned off the heat? "Spring is coming, spring is coming" Repeat, Repeat until you look out the window and see the icicles hanging from your roof and the snow piled up outside your window. Run, wait, too tired. Walk, close the curtains quick and hibernate for a few more weeks!

Let's not even talk about the fatigue. I barely have the energy to walk to the bathroom, but I can't sleep due to the pain. Okay fine, let's try the power of positive thinking. I have been doing that since I was diagnosed with RA. "You are not sick, you do not have an evil bug, your body does not hate you, I feel better, I am better, I am fine, I am not tired, I don't hurt, ok let's try getting out of bed now! I can positively report I am still sick and am now dizzy as well!

This is the reason I'm behind on my posts, why I haven't been social on any of the social media sites. Social in real life? Forget it!  

I can't remember where I was even going with this post! it was supposed to be a catch up post, now it is turning into "I hope you don't catch this." Seriously I hope you don't!

Since I spent all of last week around germ infested humans. People who coughed, sneezed feeling the need to spread their breed of nastiness to me. I'm not sure whether to go gift it back to them, or smack them for not knowing any better.

I'm still off topic! What was the topic? I'm not on medication I swear! It's a good thing, this would be even worse! Speaking of medication, my insurance company still hasn't felt the need to get off of their butts and give me my medication pre-authorization. The waiting continues, I can't take it now anyway thanks to this bug!

Back to the original topic, here are a couple of pictures from last week. We attended our grandson's school concert. As you can see the roads were not great, we had blowing snow and it was slick out there. We had about an hours drive each way. Both boys were awesome as always. I remember as a child I hated performing in front of people. I still do, I would rather be quietly behind the scenes. I have always been a fairly quiet person. Part of that was going to school in Britain, it was frowned upon to talk in class at all. When we moved, I remember every report card there were complaints that I didn't speak enough. My grandsons are the opposite, they are hams and love the spotlight. I am more amazed by them everyday.






If you have read this far, thank you! I know I'm rambling. I hope by my next post I will have my thoughts together. I can't promise that though!

Have a great rest of the week!

  1. I understand fatigue. The words I have to say about it aren't fit to be posted. I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism, so now I at least get to say, "Ha! Told you I wasn't faking!". Hope you can get over your bug soon!

    1. I'm sorry you are having to deal with hypothyroidism. There are so many components to it that are similar to what I have. I can imagine the words you would use, I have used many over the years as well. I hold back on here to keep it family friendly :) I hope you can find a great doctor and the right treatment to help you. To the people who think you were faking, shame on them. I hope they feel like crap now for being shallow minded. Ha, I'm writing a book here! I better stop while I'm ahead, or maybe behind. Thanks for your comment, before I forget I will kick this bug back to where it came from! Have a great day!
