I'm pleased to say that I am having more good days lately because I am recovering faster from any backsliding due to over-doing it. It still may only be one day active enough to get out or do gardening and two days resting but that is a big improvement over weeks going by stuck here. Today is a recovery day with increased pain levels, glands, headache, etc etc because yesterday I was quite active washing the car, doing housework (I smashed a glass), washing laundry, ducking up to the shops and the day before I also was quite active so I got two days. Yesterday I was still feeling good enough to continue on with living but I could not be sure how I would be if I did any more so I took the scooter out for a ride and resisted the urge to go for a walk. It turned out to be a wise choice because I can tell I need to go slow today and I am back on the pain killers after a couple of days break.
I'll be trying very hard to pace myself between now and Wednesday when I will be going to see Dr Andrew and hopefully get an explanation about my thyroid tests and a reconfirmation about the adrenals since I have a copy of that test to take with me. It will be way too early to discuss the Lyme testing because I do not expect that back for ages.
I worry about coming to visit for Christmas because I am so easily swept up in the moment if I am feeling even half OK and tend to disregard my warning symptoms and also from the point of view of my diet. Also, S has made noises recently about "turning up on my doorstep" and he has already refused to go to his Dad's now that B is there. But I also worry that I worry too much. LOL. How would you like S to come for Christmas too, then I would not have to think of him taking over here?
