First, this morning
56 degrees, sun was shining, nice breeze, screen door and some windows open.
and thoughts of Fall.
busy with doctor visit, grocery, drugstore stop and finally home.
The doctor is a surgeon
who did colon test 2 years ago and found nothing
but severe inflammation.
I like consultations with him.
He is so kind and compassionate.
Once again I was advised to stay on a low dose of Prednisone
to see if this helps terrible flareups that occur when I am totally off of this medication.
Was told a very low dose daily will not harm me.
So this time
I will obey....
I do not like taking medication
as up until a few years ago - I never did take anything.
My continual thoughts have been
of my healthy lifestyle managing this problem
is not working.
So again - this time I will obey...
I do not like sharing health issues
and have thoughts of not writing but occasionally
about other subjects.
But then since it is a part of my life at this time
and I am very open will continue to share and
maybe it will help someone as they age.
Sjogrens also causes extreme fatigue at times, aching from arthritis,
balance issues and continual dry eyes and mouth.
It is an inflammatory disease and I have done much research
on it and several write blogs about this condition.
There are days that none of my symptoms surface, it is truly a gift
and I feel like standing in the middle of woods or field
with continual thankfulness and praise to God.
Guess I do this :) and I think a miracle has occurred and my
condition has gone away.
Then the visits start occurring and
I do not like it and fight it with all my strengh.
Even try to ignore it.
I was told yesterday once again
Do not push yourself so hard, continue to eat healthy,
rest more and stop the busy lifestyle you
have always had in the past and a little help with chores that are difficult
at this time.
Everything that I am told to do
is not me or rather was not me
and guess it is me at this time.
So One Woman accept where you are at this time of life
and take one day at a time and be thankful for all that is not.
The sun is shining, a breeze is blowing,
a helper with grass cutting just propped up my Sunflowers.
So I will smile and rejoice
this beautiful day....
