Cant walk

My husband and I have an inside joke / saying and it is that he will never push me in a wheelchair. He will do everything else for me but that is crossing the line for him...haha. (it is a joke between us, it really is)
Anyway, I never really thought much about me having to use a wheelchair one day but after this past week, that could be more of a reality for me. Why do I say this??? Because the pain in my feet has been so bad the past couple of days!!!!! Just the thought of standing up and taking a few steps is almost unbearable. It feels as though I have a million tiny needles poking me in my feet. It seems to get worse at night. Not only my feet but my calves as well have been extremely painful....for some reason rubbing helps my calves some....

OK now lets go to the top of my head.....I don't want to brush my hair because the bristle touching my scalp hurts really is the kind of pain that makes your stomach upset when the bristle hits my scalp. Does that make sense??
This pain doesn't always happen and it's been awhile...I'm ready for it to go away again...:(

One last thing....If someone wanted a mixed drink and they said, shaken not stirred then I would be the person they would give it to.
As many of you that have fibromyalgia know your body jerks. Well, at least mine does!!! I have good days and I have bad days....I feel like today has been a pretty bad day and my grip in my hands has not been all that good either???? I haven't quite figured that part out yet. It does worry me some days though....
Right now I am typing this and when I say my body is jerking it is not small ones, they are big enough for Jim to see across the room and for me to move things.
It doesn't just happen at night is frustrating though when I am trying to fall asleep. (I am worried I will hit Jim...haha)

The good part to this blog is....I was able to get outside today and do a little bit of yardwork! That makes me very happy! We have a long way to go but it is a start. It takes me ALL spring and summer now to do what I used to be able to get done in a month.....

O more thing.....I have shingles on my arm!!!!!

On that note I am going to bed....gotta get up for church in the morning. I have alot to be thankful for!!
