I'm off to see a new doctor today. Hopefully, we can find out just what it is that I have, so I can get some relief. A definitive diagnosis would be nice. At least then I would know exactly what I was dealing with and what to expect. If you have a moment, please say a little prayer for me. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all that I have to do plus dealing with chronic pain. I make sure that I unite it with Jesus' suffering and this helps me cope with the pain better but I would still like to know what disease I am suffering from. I know that I have some type of muscle and joint disease or the prednisone wouldn't help so much. The doctors have pretty much thrown out the diagnosis of fibromyalgia.
Do you know what bothers me the most about being sick? Having to say to my daughter that, "Mommy can't play with you today because I am feeling bad." Kids love to go outside and run around, play tag, hide and seek,swim - all kinds of active things. These are the things she likes to do best and these are the things that are the hardest for me to do. I read to her and play quiet games instead. Sometimes I push myself and run around with her but I usually pay for it after. It would be nice to wake up feeling great and be able to say, "C'mon Peanut, let's go run around the park!" :)
