Subject: feeling good

Hi people, I just thought I'd share with ye, I'm feeling good today, it's the best day I've had in 4 months. I didn't have much pain for a change, didn't know what to do, I wanted to do everything. With a struggle I didn't do much, I was afraid to go back to that awful pain. I feel a little excited, maybe I'm on the mend.
I'm probably kiddin myself but I'll enjoy it while I can. Hopefully I'l take a walk into town tomorrow(it's just 200 yards away)I havn't been able in ages. I'll let ye know how I get on tomorrow. It's typical, Ive been crippled for months, and as soon as I get an appointment with rheummy, I feel better. What do ya do eh?

Just back from town,I had a lovely time with my daughter. I felt so excited to be in town. I was very achy and sore feet but it was worth it. I was trying on clothes but I just gave up, I'm gone from a size 12 to a 16 in just 3 months because of the bloody Lyrica, sick. Has anyone else had this problem.

Hi Jill, my son is doing great, hes in Australia at the moment, thanks for asking, he ring and keeps in touch on facebook. Lyrica is for killing nerve pain, it's quite popular, in Ireland anyway, thats one of the side effects. Oh i have no intention of doing anything, I'm restig now, watching strictly. ;-)

Hi Jill,I'm on tramadol,8 a day,sometimes they don't work at all. The rummy said that nerve pain was my problem. that's why I'm sore all over. I really hope they work. I'll be starting in 2 weeks,have to wean off my antidepresants first. I suppose it's trial and error at first to see what works for you.
Had a good cry last night, I cried for Ireland,ha, I felt a bit better today but I can still feel it bubbling away inside, it will come out sooner or later. ;-) Thanks for the hugs

Bit late with this post, but glad to hear about the good days too! Crying's good for you or so I'm told - helps you 'get it all out'

Hope you're still feeling okay

Hello people, well I have rested all day, I'm feeling in a bit better form, I think. I allways have a good cry before my period. I don't know what's happening with them, one month I'm late and the next I'm early, I'm all over the shop. Anyway, I took a couple of days off college, I'm begining to wonder if I'm able for it. Time will tell.
