21 Symptoms Kids With Fibromyalgia Had That Were Brushed Off as ‘Growing Pains’


21 Symptoms Kids With Fibromyalgia Had That Were Brushed Off as ‘Growing Pains’

Although I had most of these and didn’t know why, a few of them brought back memories. Doctors still don’t take us seriously and now we are adults.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 23rd, 2018

Your prompt for January 23rd, 2018, brought to you by the kind, considerate, and eloquently snarky Supernatural Snark, is “Colour.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Super at her blog, “Supernatural Snark” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://supernaturalsnark.wordpress.com/

Colour is missing in winter. What color is here is lifeless and gives no hope that spring and summer that are full of colour will rejoin us again. The only joy I get out of Winter is unused, fresh snow in a beautiful landscape. There the lack of colour is overridden by the landscape, fresh and pure.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 22nd, 2018

Your prompt for January 22nd, 2018, brought to you by the friendly and nautically inclined Capt Jill, is “Liberty.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Jill at her blog, “Capt Jills Journeys” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://captjillsjourneys.wordpress.com/

After feeling like I was at war with my body, today I got the call of Liberty. The dr that made all that fuss, made it over nothing most likely. He made me have to go to a gastroenterologist  because he read my liver results as if I were going to die very soon. The gastroenterologist thought he was crazy for making all that fuss. He is going to do some extra blood work and an ultrasound just to be certain, but he doesn’t expect it to be anything serious. I don’t have to stop anymore meds especially the percocets and I can have my epidural of my lumbar spine as planned. Liberty!!!

#JusJoJan 2018, the 18th – Revolt


#JusJoJan 2018, the 18th – Revolt

Your prompt for January 18th, 2018, brought to you by the lovely Sandra, is “Revolt.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Sandra at her blog, “What Sandra Thinks” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://whatsandrathinks.com/

Revolt, how revolting. Writing about revolt can be quite revolting in its telling. I think of revolting as disgusting. Probably the most revolting thing would be vomiting. I can’t handle it and it makes me want to join in. I always had to get my husband when one of the children vomited and heaven forbid if he wasn’t there.

Another revolting thing was maggots. Even on tv.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 16th, 2018

Your prompt for January 16th, 2018, brought to you by the multi-talented Cheryl, is “Contemplation.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Cheryl at her blog, “The Bag Lady” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://rugby843.blog/

I spend a lot of time contemplating things I shouldn’t be. Some things are best not contemplated. Things like my drs declaration that my liver is in a life-threatening condition. I can’t stop thinking about it. I am just in the first step, an abnormal live test. From my research there is a lot it could be and it might not be anything except I might have to stop all pain medication. I am in so much pain while taking the meds I can’t imagine what it would be like without them. And then there is the big “C” (cancer) and and a lot inbetween. I don’t drink so that should eliminate those possibilities. I was diagnosed probably close to 10 years ago with a fatty liver. I know all this contemplating over something I have no control over at this point is pointless. I have an appt with the gastroenterologist on Feb 6. There the journey will begin.
