A Lot Of Catching Up To Do

Good morning friends. It's been over a week since I was last on myLot. I have fibromyalgia and RA and I had a really bad flare that left me mostly in bed with a lot of pain. My doctor changed my medication and after about a week, I am no longer in pain which is such a great feeling. He seemed to think that my pain was from fibromyalgia and he put me on Savella. It took about a week but now I think it must be a wonder drug because I am not in any pain. I haven't felt this way in years. It does make me tired but I can handle that. About a week ago we had Daisy spayed and the poor little thing had a rough time of it. She was in so much pain that she would try and lay down with just her head and shoulders down and her stomach up in the air. She wouldn't eat either but the doctor said this could happen. Fortunately after about a day and a half, she was back to her old self. I have been having to watch her because she is so hyper and we didn't want her busting any stitches. I say stitches but she only had stitches on the inside. On the outside, she had some kind of glue and I have been watching her every move so that the glue wouldn't come apart. She has been healing really fast and I think in another week, her incision will be completely healed. So, what has everyone been up to lately? Anything exciting? I have so much to catch up on today but I am looking forward to it. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

Poor little Daisy I feel so sorry, I can imagine how depressed she was. I hope she is healing quickly.

It broke my heart to see her in so much pain. She just couldn't get comfortable but thankfully she was feeling better the next day.

@LadyDuck So am I. Looking at her now, you would never know she had anything done. Dogs recover so much better than humans do. If we had the same procedure, there is no way we would be up running around two days later.

I do think that dull aching pain is so troublesome. Why don't you try to avail some physiotherapist for your musculoskeletal condition. It might also relieve the pain.

will make up for a friend. There is no more important than that all are alive and healthy in the first place and then work and play. When everything is wrong with you you can not help but catch up.

Yes, when you are away from myLot, there is always a lot of catching up to do.

Glad to hear that you and Daisy are doing good. Hope you feel much better in the coming days. I believe I needed more of the catching up. Just recently learned that myLot is back to the paying site that it used to be. I try to go back to some of the post but with the busy schedule I have, I don't think I'll be able to catch up real soon.

It is always so hard to catch up whenever you have had time away.

I'm sorry that you have been in so much pain, I did wonder where you were. I'm happy that you are feeling so much better. I'm glad that Daisy is healing, it must have been hard for you seeing her hurting.

It was very hard for me to see her in so much pain. It just broke my heart because she is normally so fearless and active.

It has really been a godsend for me. It took about a week for it to start working but it has made such a big difference in how I feel.

Welcome back, I wondered what happened to you, since I have been here almost every day now. I am so glad you got help for your pain and that Daisy is is good. What exciting news do I have? Well, I only need to polish one more synopsis and I will be ready to start submitting to agents and last Friday I received my diploma in the mail. And, though I really didn't want to go to a doctor about my foot, I have a friend who also doesn't do meds and suggested a doctor. I made an appointment for Tuesday, so I have faith that I will be back dancing again...

I am so happy for you about your book! I know you must be so excited. Are you going to frame your diploma? I would. I am glad that you are finally going to go to the doctor about your foot. Hopefully he/she will find out what is wrong and be able to treat you for it.

@simone10 Oh yeah, I am going to frame it and would like to hang it near the computer while I am writing. As for this doctor, my friend said she is really good and my friend said she was pain free for a year now.

@whiteream Yes they really are. I love the breed and wish I could have a house full of them, but only adults, not puppies. Daisy broke me of ever wanting another puppy...lol. Talk about stubborn and so energetic. I'm getting too old for puppies.

I haven't been on much lately either. I've been either busy or not feeling like being on the computer. It's great that you are feeling better and hopefully Daisy will keep healing quickly too.

Thank you! Daisy is fine now. Her incision is almost completely healed. I'm feeling better also and wish it was spring so that I could go out and walk and enjoy the weather more now that I am better.

I'm sorry you had such a rough time. It is good that your pain has gone though. And poor Daisy. Fancy her trying to sleep with her tummy off the floor - that's sad.

It was so sad watching Daisy in so much pain and trying to keep her stomach off the floor...well actually her bed. We couldn't give her any pain medication until the next morning because they had given her something at the vet before she left.

I know, she probably was wondering why I left her there for someone to hurt her.

Can something else be done for what you have or just medication? Can it get better? I am sorry about how hard it was for Daisy. I remember when I spayed my cat that I had before Sophie. I put a mattress on the floor for the dog the cat and myself. She would go off teh mattress and I would bring her back to it.
