Today was a rough day for me. I didn't feel too bad (well, no worse than normal) when I woke up, but things just got progressively worse as the day went on.
I ran to Wally World to get a new mouse for the lap top (still can't find our other one). I needed a few cleaning supplies too, so I headed out after my shower. All was going well until I stopped at the coolers to get some yogurt. I got the worst pain that spread quickly down my legs. Taking one step felt like I was walking on broken glass. I hurt so much that I had tears. One of the Wally World employees came over and asked if she could help me.
She went to the front and got a scooter for me and transferred the few items I had to the basket. She walked with me to the front of the store and helped me check out. She walked outside and asked where my car was parked. I pointed to my view and she said she'd get it for me, to just sit and wait.
God bless this woman.
She pulled my Vue to the curb right in front of me, and loaded my 4 little bags. I couldn't thank her enough!
By the time I got home, I shuffled into the house and into the hot tub. It helped, but the pain stayed...and spread. Which is what FM will do, if it so pleases.
I've learned that fighting it does noooooo good. You tolerate it until it decides to lessen.
Around 4:30 the phone rang and it was my Doctor's nurse. Apparently Jay had called them telling them about the pain I had today. My Doctor is out of the office today, so the nurse took all the info and said they'd call me back.
Big deal. My doctor is nice, but no specialist, and therefore is only able to do so much.
About 5:00 the phone rang again. The woman said her name was Laurie and she was the nurse of the specialist I was to see in a few months. She said they have a cancellation for...TOMORROW. Would I be interested in coming in?
I am so excited that I know my insomnia is going to be even worse tonight...ha! This doctor is a Rheumatologist. He specializes in diseases, syndromes, and conditions involving chronic pain. I am so hoping he can give me ideas and suggestions on ways to ease the daily pain and make it possible to get back out in the world again!!
