#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : Stopped taking Lyrica, pain decreasing some


#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : Stopped taking Lyrica, pain decreasing some

Directions from ECLECTICALLI

Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from Friday, February 8th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday, February 11th at 7am (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!

*********************************

If we were having coffee, I would be drinking hot tea because the temperatures have dropped a lot. You may have coffee or tea, whichever you prefer.

I am actually cold today. Last night dropped to 43 degrees F and tonight it is supposed to drop to 49 and right now it is 52. That was a quick change in temperatures. From 90 plus on Wednesday.

I got my own new walker through my insurance. I stopped taking the Lyrica out of a hunch and the pain is slowly decreasing. I would hate to think I suffered all these months and it was one of my medications. It is the one for the Fibromyalgia. It was the last one available for Fibromyalgia that I hadn’t tried. I also gained a lot of weight which is why my doctor wouldn’t try it. I am already overweight and so these extra 25 pounds weren’t good. I bought larger clothes and they are tight now.

My breathing problems are still problematic.  It is hard to sleep when you feel as if you can’t breathe. I am working on remembering to take the treatments twice a day as recommended.

I would also tell you that Sunday is usually brunch with my BFF. Since they have increased the prices on the weekend, we are going on Monday instead. We probably won’t have the same waitress or waiter.

Time for a breathing treatment as it is almost time for bed and I want to be able to sleep.

Enjoy your week coming up.
