Day 41-44

Hi there. I keep meaning to write every day but it seems “life” gets in the way all too often.

Friday – Simple day of work and home to relax.  Took my EHT in the morning and felt relaxed and refreshed all day. It feels so good to be getting my life back. And… ohmigosh… the chemo fog or CRPS fog or just simply brain fog is lifting daily. It amazes me how quickly information is being recalled. Work is starting to return to normal. My filing is being handled, my desk is back to being neat and orderly. I can THINK! It’s been 3 long years battling CRPS. 3 years of pain, low sleep levels, emotional energy drain and pain brain fog. Weird thing is despite my belly (h pylori) issues, I am even starting to feel better physically. I’ve noticed I am not as stiff waking up as I used to be, then again that could be because I am not waking up 4-6 times a night.

Saturday – I woke up early and had a ton of energy. Focused and driven to get my master bedroom & bath cleaned. I even had enough energy to wash the walls and clean the baseboards.  (You probably don’t know this, but I suffer – well suffer probably isn’t the right word… I enjoy having OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) I haven’t been as focused lately. My house isn’t as clean as it usually is.  Sortof felt like a mini-depression because I couldn’t stay focused. I couldn’t find the energy. CRPS really changed me. It took so much from me emotionally, physically, financially and now I AM GETTING IT BACK! Went to see “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” at a real movie theatre. It was so nice to feel totally human again and not be exhausted after working all day and then a movie. Even had enough left in me to go to a late night dinner at a local Pub.  I honestly can’t convey my excitement for getting my life back. I was tired of not having enough energy for myself, my family, my house and most importantly to expand my business.

Sunday – Had a nice quiet day. Just worked on cleaning my kitchen and catching up on some “follow-ups” with my customers that I really need to do more often. Enjoyed conversations, laughter and even a few tears. Overall had a great night’s sleep. Even woke up at 6:45 am and wasn’t tired. I felt rested. I didn’t feel the need to go back to sleep. That in itself is simply enough for me to keep taking EHT.

Monday – The most productive day I’ve had at work since being diagnosed with CRPS. I havent been able to put in the OT that I need to. Feeling too tired and/or in way too much pain by the end of the day, or simply didn’t care emotionally enough to stay. But I was determined. I needed to archive some files. It’s a long process. I have to make sure all the files are put away, that none have gone rogue, and then move them into different drawers and take one year out to the warehouse for permanent storage. It usually takes me 6 hours. I had my son help me and we did it in just under 2 hours! I was focused, I didn’t need to “rest”. I didn’t feel like crying or going to bed. I just did it! That’s an accomplishment in itself!  Then we went to a Salvadorian Food (Pupusas are amazing!). Home and in bed by 9:30…. up early and feeling great on Tuesday. So far… I have faith it’s gonna be a good day.

Have a great Tuesday!
