Whatever the reason, I am just going to accept it and be happy about it. I am going to live in the moment and enjoy some pain free days. I am not going to wait for the pain to start or read into it too much. I am pretty darn happy about it!
As I continue with chiropractic treatment, I wonder if I can acheive my ultimate goal: cut out medication. I hate taking pills everyday and if I can get off some of it, that would be wonderful. I know many people with fibro take a lot more than I do, so I can't complain much. But, it's an expense and a pain in the butt remembering to take it everyday.
My routine for medication is:
- GNC Women's Ultra Mega Vitamin with breakfast. This vitamin rocks!
- YAZ birth control pill & Effexor with lunch. I really don't need birth control, my husband had a vasectomy after Austin was born. But, I take it because the pain with my periods was so bad (since Austin's birth) and it was irregular, plus endometriosis.. I also had dramatic mood swings during this time, so it helps with that as well. Effexor is what the dr. prescribed for the fibro pain.
- Zyrtec before bed. This stops the wierd itching I get if I don't take it. It's expensive over the counter, would love to drop this one!
I have had no difficulty getting out of bed the past 2 mornings either. I haven't exactly jumped right up, but I haven't been as sleepy and foggy in the morning.
