Sunday thoughts from a Fibromyalgia mind #18/3





If you are new to reading my blog Sunday thoughts from a fibro mind are just a small update on my inner thoughts from the week usually typed out with my Sunday morning coffee and some of the images from my phone. (If I have any from that week) 

Oh wow, this week has been such a rollercoaster but as I sit here now typing I have a huge smile on my face, so all is good. 

The week started all happy in my own little world. My sons were still off school for Easter break so we were just happy with our little place in the world. Mum came as she always does and I got some shopping.

As the week progressed I started to feel a bit off and soon discovered I had a urinary tract infection (water infection). One of the things that makes life with fibro difficult sometimes is that we put all our aches, pains and symptoms down to fibromyalgia.

My lower back pain was fibro...
My urgency to wee was fibro...
My fluctuations in body temp were fibro.
My general feeling of unwell had to be fibro also, yet it all these obvious warning signs was a water infection! So off to the doctors I went to get antibiotics and have a wee sample sent off to the hospital. I was chuffed to bits while I was there as the doctor said I was due to have a diabetes check again. Long story cut short, I am not prediabetes and my blood tends to display signs I am moving towards that. This is due to being overweight and getting on a bit. After watching my Nan on Metformin I always knew that was not the drug of choice for me so a few years back I entered into a lifestyle change with the help of my doctor's surgery Nurse. Back then it was small changes to my diet and lifestyle. Being a large plus size lady that loves her curves is great, I wave the body positive flag often...BUT.. We should NEVER forget that being overweight comes with health risks, this scares me and so I needed to change. 

I blogged about these changes and called the blogs "Fat Girls Prozac" as that is what food is to me, happiness. Sadly being a total numpty I had a blog audit and deleted the blogs. This is one rule of Blogging I would strongly advocate, no matter how cringe-worthy your blogs are to look back on, NEVER delete them. 





I have totally waffled on and gone off subject, fibro fog Arrrgh...

So, I was chuffed in the Doctors as I was telling her about my change to a Vegan diet, she was delighted. I get my blood done tomorrow and will report back any changes this new diet has made to my pancreas. It really has made a difference already to my fibromyalgia symptoms.



Don't worry I am not going to bore you and say I am cured, blogs and articles that claim diet alone can cure Fibromyalgia REALLY irritate me. If there was a cure we would all jump at the chance so bog off with your false claims.... 

Another big step in Ness world this week was deleting Facebook and Messenger from my phone. I spend way too long scrolling through the world of Facebook. So many things I need to do yet I spend my time there. So I am currently cold turkey from Facebook, but I have to admit it is not that bad. I am getting lots done and feel totally inspired. I sit there sharing posts about living in the moment, be here now, mindfulness yet I am stuck looking at a screen! Bonkers I know. 

Really loved the extra time to sit and do my crochet hobby. Total bliss and relaxation for me. 



...and that is about it really. 

What have you been up to?
Where are you at with symptoms, balance and medication at the moment? 

I will find a way to make sure this week is wonderful at my level of energy.
