It's four AM. Soon morning will be here and this miserable night will be over. I woke last night, two hours after I went to sleep in total and absolute pain. Every joint in my body was flaring. I tried to ignore it for a few hours....kept switching from the recliner to the bed and back....but finally had to face it. I hurt too much to sleep. So I got up and played around on line....As you see, part of what I did was to give the blog a facelift. But even though I admitted it:that the pain was bigger than my exhaustion, it didn't ease up at all. I even took prednisone in a vain hope of trying to get control of this inflammation. I also loaded up my cold pack with two frozen packs and have been holding it first on one joint and then on another. Right now I have it on my neck which is not only feeling good on my pain but is also cooling me off. My whole body feels HOT- filled with burning inflamed joints. I don't have a fever (which can happen with this disease) but I feel like I do. I feel like one sweaty, feverish ball of pain.
Today I have to go to the pharmacy (that is a must). I was also going to get my hair cut and go to the grocery store. I don't feel like doing this stuff but I will maybe be glad if I can get it all done. I will have to see how well I can walk once the morning fully arrives. Actually...I'm wondering if maybe I can doze a little bit now. I'm going to try I will see you later :)
