Fibromyalgia and Lupus Stink

The last week or so,  I have been dealing big time with my FMS and Lupus.  I don't know what I did to make it act up.

I have been dealing with the same darn headache for 13 days in a row now.  The doctor told me that, is a migraine which I have a hard time believing since I have been able to function and I thought migraines caused you to have to run to a dark and quiet room.  Anyways,  he gave me Imitrex and he told me it would work right away.  Well 15 mins after taking it,  the side affects started and they were 15 times worse then the stupid headache itself.   I will never take that stuff again.  Ewwwwwww.  Heres to better Days !!!!! 

On top of all of that,  my foster Dad,  Harry has been in the hospital.  Harry is the only Dad that I have ever had that was wonderful to me and showed me what a real Dad should be like.  He was a tough Dad,  we kids had chores and no TV during the school year.  We worked hard and had a great time doing it.  His real kids treat him like a dog and due from neglect and malnourishment he has been in the hospital for over a month now.  I have begged him for years to come and live with me and my husband but he feels like he has to take care of his youngest son who has bled him dry of money and heath now.  I have been driving to Phoenix a couple of times a week now to see him.  It's a 90 min drive there and 90 min drive back and Harry has only been up for a 5 min visit each time.  He is just so weak that I am not sure if he will ever recover.  All I can do is pray that he will get better and come and live with us.

Today is my catch up day on cleaning and cooking some make ahead meals since its been so busy around here.  I love to cook and I got a ninja mix master for Christmas which Roger gave me early.  (hehe)  I have celiac disease so I have to have a gluten free diet.  Most soups now have wheat in them to use as a thickener so now I can make my own soups.   Woohoo,  I have wanted a food processor for years now but couldn't afford one.  We found this one at Walmart for 35.00 and so far its been worth every penny.  I made tomato soup for under a 1.00 a can when a can of gluten free tomato soup is over 3.00.  Well I am off to get somethings done and then I can sit down and stitch for awhile.

I hope everyone has a great stitching day !!!!
