This week I’m celebrating a few things:

♦  My amazing neighbor and friend Tamera, who has been a Godsend to me. She helps me with errands, appointments and chores that I have difficulty doing by myself, like heavy laundry.

♦  My pain levels this week have been a little bit better, averaging between 4-6 since I took myself off my pain patch. Last week I was close to an 8 at my worst. I’m compensating by increasing the amount of Baclofen I take daily to two and over the counter Tylenol.

♦  My two doctor appointments this week went really well and some of my meds were adjusted, and we’re working to manage my pain right now without the Fentanyl. My one doctor suggested that I consider going down to the lowest dose possible for now until we find something else that works. I told her I’d think about it.

♦  Best of all, I’m still here!!  ..

 

What have you celebrated this week?

About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

    Living with pain is a difficult thing to do. I am glad your levels are a little better and that you and the docs can find a good way to control them completely. Hugs.

    It’s wonderful to find someone who can help and is kind. I have Fibro but the pain is not as bad as it used to be. I feel for you. I’m off of blog hop this month due to craft orders but I’ll return. Have a great week! :))
