Glad to hear that hubby is doing well. Life does throw us curves doesn't it? I know how it is to have tests done and with all your being think positive that all is fine. That is the best way, it is how I deal with my sweetie. He has monthly visits and tests. It is good and bad days with him, unfortunately, the bad days are more than the good lately. I say to him that we were definitely meant to be with each other since our understanding of how chronic illnesses can work on your life. I can tell you love your hubby, there is nothing stronger. You are also blessed to have each other. I keep you and hubby in my daily prayers for healing.
They say that married men live longer, I can see why. Getting them to eat healthy is difficult, especially if they grew up not knowing any difference. I started whipping my hubby into shape, mind wise, when we first got together. Fortunately, my mom was way a head of her time and we were brought up eating no sweets (maybe graham crackers
)., no sodas, etc. Now he shops as I would, sometimes even more healthily. I always wonder how many woman are going through the same thing with their hubby and children at the market. When I think of that is makes me chuckle.
He lost 50 pounds last time he was in the hospital and has kept it off. Now it is my turn. It is hard with fibro as you know. The only tool I have right now is trying not to eat after dinner or not eating after a certain time.. Before I hurt my back I lost 10 pounds by doing this. I just say to myself, one thing at a time.
Sorry you are having a tough day. Do you have one day good and the next bad? Seems that this is how I work. I feel better, do something, can't sleep and then wham, fibro greats me again. I have been in a flare for over 2 months so it is a question of degrees. Lately I can not use my hands in the morning for about an hour they hurt so bad.
My back is not doing too well. I still can't sit in a chair for long. I haven't been able to get to therapy and have my back worked on and myofascial release (what a wonderful thing that is). Yes, I walk around like I have a book on my head, good for the posture I figure. The good thing that has come out of this is that I am more aware of my body and how I do not stand up straight and tall. Since I have the herniated discs in neck I have learned to keep my neck tall which in turn makes me pull everything up and stomach in. So, trying to look on the bright side, my posture is getting better.
I have a hair appointment today that I have cancelled for month, my hair is out of control. No matter what, I am going today, even if I have to stand. You know how it is to get your hair done, feels fabulous. So, that is my goal for today.
Take care and have a good day. Hope everyone is having a painfree or less pain today.
Peace and love, Hangin
