Free At Last!


I am sorry I have been gone so long and had this blog shut down.  But it was needed for awhile.

I decided it was time to come back and let you know my wonderful news!




As most of you know I have suffered with a lot of pain since 1994 and it has not gotten any better except for some of the time I took biologics for my RA.

Nothing seemed to work for my Fibromyalgia.  I have recently taken some bad falls and have hurt myself badly...It seems that because of the pain I am not lifting my feet correctly and I have basically tripped twice now.  I have damaged the Sacral nerves on my left side, and it is excruciating!  Basically pain pills and a tens unit was all that helped.




So after being pretty disillusioned and kicked out of a practice where I had been a patient for over 20 years, I finally decided to try a pain clinic.

I went to a place called Arizona Pain.  I saw a doctor who listened and asked questions and came to a conclusion that I need three different meds. A pain patch that gives me a small dose of a narcotic every hour, a Gabapetin pill for the Fibro and a new Ibuprofen pill wrapped in fomotodine.
It too about a week, but one morning I woke up, took my meds and an hour later I was PAIN FREE!



Pain free...for the first time in 25+ years.  I figured it was just a really good day, even though I had never had one like it...and every day since has been the same...I have energy, I did the grocery shopping today, I haven't done that in years without it exhausting me and putting me in bed with pain.
On Mother's Day I even RAN for about 20 feet!  Just to see if I could...it was amazing, my son Bryan and I had such a laugh over it!



I am hopeful that this is my life from here on in...I might have gotten to this point at 63...but whatever time I have left will be wonderful!

My hopes:
Start walking in the pool here and get some weight off.
Go see my friend in Colorado and ride a horse!
Be involved with life again!

I am so glad to be back here, on my sweet blog and hopefully some of my friends are still around...



Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Sandy! So nice to hear you are pain free! that is wonderful news! Hope you continue to improve! I have so loved your blog. I miss mine so much. When I go on my dashboard it says my blog doesn't exist. (pink roses and Teacups) I didn't realize when I deleted my yahoo account it doesn't recognize my blog anymore. although it is still there and I can see it. I wanted to start another one, but I don't know where to begin. I might one of these days. Take care!
