Thanks. I almost feel silly complaining here when so many people have it worse, just been struggling with pain a lot lately. I was told my arthritis would improve with weight loss but it has not. I've always had it in my limbs and am used to that but it's set up in my spine and that causes nerve pain in my limbs that gets pretty miserable. It's just been bad lately and there's little to nothing left to do about it. The meds I have to take for it make me feel so yucky but they help the pain. Most of the time, I have a good attitude about it but back-to-back bad pain days can be really hard on the attitude.
I have also been struggling with what they think is an inner ear thing that makes me dizzy. And for the last few months I've been having urinary issues. Such is life. I really am blessed and try not to whine about it too much. I am grateful for the function I have that so many other don't.
I waiver between not wanting to post about it and thinking that someone else might be in this same spot, needing to know that not everyday is a bad one. I also get hopeful that maybe, just maybe, someone will know of an option I've overlooked.
Thank You for the well wishes. If I do figure out something that brings relief, I'll be sure to post about it.
Calorie counting gave me a method to fix the madness.
A high protein, moderate carb balance gives me control over cravings.
