Putting On The Brakes….


I’ve felt it creeping up for a couple weeks……. More fatigue, less energy, aching, nausea, no appetite &

Taking it easy….

headaches…. So I’ve been backing off things and taking it easier, hoping to avert a miserable exacerbation.  The joint pain & southern discomfort started yesterday, while I was (of all things) leading a meeting.  No, I did NOT have to run from the room, thank goodness.

Today I’m resting, taking my medications on my “head it off at the pass” schedule (like a good girl) and looking forward to a few days of Ensure & other liquids…..  Listening to my body helps me stay on top of the curve–most times, at least.  For now, I’m remaining hopeful & proactive!

    “Listening to my body helps me stay on top of the curve–most times, at least” What a great philosphy! I hope taking it easy and the holiday weekend combine to give your body a bit of a rest — a time out long enough to bring some relief and “ward off at the pass” anything nasty coming your way. Good luck and take care! Hope your formula and your listening works.
