Nice Ride!

Today is a beautiful day blue sky’s with wispy clouds here and there. It is very much a Sunday sitting in my PJ’s with the windows open so I can smell that fresh fall air. The birds are quiet and for the first time today there isn’t a rotating group of birds devouring the seeds in our front yard feeder. It is a very peaceful day.

Something exciting to add to my Sunday post. My room mate’s uncle stopped by this morning with his newly purchased 2008 Red Mustang…what a sweet sounding car, looks sexy too, I was a little surprised at the very minimal dash console, not sure what I felt it was missing but there was something. Anyway very sexy ride and he let me take it for a drive. Got it up to 100 miles an hour and just as I crested a hill what do I see cop cars, thats rite more than one (it was 2) thats rite 2 of them back to back. The uncle says uh ooohhhh your gonna get a ticket!  Must have been my lucky day or I slowed it down from a 100 in good time, as I was in a 35 mph zone on a straight country road stretch. They just kept on going and so did I.  I loved it the best part of my day by far.

Fall


I am lucky enough to live in the great Pacific Northwest, Its a beautiful fall day here. Not to hot, not too chilled just right. Our majestic evergreens are the wonderful backdrop to our leaf shedding trees, with their bright yellow and orange leaves. It makes me feel warm and cozy to hear the wind out side my window crisply shaking all the brightly colored leaves. Singing of the arrival of fall and cooler weather.

Orange and brown are the colors of October (for me anyway) Pumpkins, candied apples, ghoulish, super hero, or princess costumes are on the minds of children every where, that and candy. I love this time of year and the beautiful month of October.

My Birthday is this month nothing much to talk about there, just another year right? Still having issues with neck, shoulder, shoulder blade is still aflame. My tension head ache is still here as well makes me wonder if the tendons were cut would that cure the tension? Or maybe release the tension? Sounds drastic I know but its not the first time I have had this thought/idea. Starting to feel desperate for some relief, I know this means its time to see the Doc again. Not sure I can hear for the umpteenth time that she didn’t have the intention of me staying on the pain pills, or the muscle relaxer for long term usage. Only had the pain med twice this year, and the muscle relaxer once this year. I do the stretches at home that I have been shown by the physical therapist, I use hot and cold packs, I soak in epson salt baths. I do what I can on my end to keep my body as stretched and usable as I possibly can. Now I am getting pains in my arms like I get in my head. I am having a ‘headache’ in my arm… I know, but that is the best way I can describe it. Need to call the foot doctor tomorrow for an appointment to see if there is anything he can do for this long term foot pain I have been having as well. Change of subject kind of. Seen my Doc not too long ago and I said so Doc, I am having pain in my right and left groin area more the right though, and its kinda making me feel a little weak on my legs, she say ok ‘lets see if it sticks around’! I kind of understand as I have fibromyalgia, but it still pisses me off!

I am looking out my window now trying to get my mood back up to where it was when I started this post. I was enjoying the fall scene outside my window, and listening to the brightly colored trees sing to me in the wind. So with a smile on my face and thoughts of Halloween in my head and I am signing off for now ;~) B.

New


I was able to see the newest addition to our family yesterday. How precious are new baby’s, he is adorable. Takes my breath away seeing new baby’s I can get side tracked in stores looking at peoples baby’s. ;~).  I was also able to go with my daughter to her fist appointment to confirm that she is in fact pregnant with her second child, how very excited and over joyed are we all.

I am still having issues with my left shoulder, shoulder blade,  arm, and left side of my neck! Causing some wicked tension head aches that keep coming and going. I know I should be grateful for the going except it just won’t stay gone.

Also my room mate who is also the father of my two children (not sure where I would be with out this man’s help, he is truly a blessing) recently purchased a car for me (so I can get to appointments, physical therapy etc) since my Van well gave up the vanly <<my word ;~) ghost finally. This is great and I am so grateful. The thing is I love a manual transmission for many reason, gas milage, the ability to push start it, and its just fun. The problem is and I wasn’t thinking about this when the car was purchased but my right arm went out (extreme pain unable to lift or use) not too long ago and I was unable to use it for a month! So if this were to happen again I would be unable to change the gears ughhh. Also have only had the  car for a couple of weeks and sometimes when I am driving I get this horrendous  pain in my knee cap in the left leg the clutch leg. Feels like some one is driving a big nail into my knee cap (its doesn’t stick around for a great amount of time) scared my son the other day because I screamed out in pain and begged for it to go away I had to pull over for a few minutes and rub my knee. This rubbing didn’t help but I tell myself it takes my mind off the pain for a second so I can breath! So now I am worried about the manual transmission sigh. It always something damn it, over and over again. I know this is something that is going to be with me for the rest of my life, I just don’t know if I will be able to take all this health crap and make it my new best friend and get along. Even just a small bit of understanding on my body’s part would be greatly appreciated!  B
