Not Myself At The Minute
Hi everyone please accept my apologies for my absence yesterday had a bad day mainly due to the car dying on me. Something to do with a timing chain belt thing; sorry I don’t know the technical term but basically I can’t drive it. It’s booked in for a replacement next week which I think is going to be about £400. So yet again it’s a case of in on one hand and out with the other. The story of my life. So no car for a week which might not sound long but when you have fibromyalgia it’s a real pain in the ass – quite literally.
Talking Of Which
I haven’t slept well for a few nights now. Someone has turned up the volume on the pain scale, my head is banging, everything either aches or hurts and I’m spending most of the time in my bathroom today. I know exactly what has caused this and it is a combination of a huge amount of stress and being out of ketosis. Because I have had 3 non-diet days due to celebrations etc I’ve been kicked out of ketosis which means fibro has been ramped up as a consequence. I don’t care what anyone says there is definitely a link to being in ketosis and a reduction in fibro symptoms 100%.
Plans Now Probably Ruined
I had an important thing happening Sunday and Monday but the way it is going I’m not going to be able to go which is also stressing me out as I hate letting people down and it was something I really wanted to do. But right now I’m sat on the sofa and can’t even lift my head to type, I’m kind of propped up so I can kind of look down my nose at the keyboard. As for any fellow fibro warriors out there, you know where I am coming from with regards to carting a suitcase on one bus and 3 trains there and back during a flare-up is nigh on impossible.
On My Own
My daughter is off to Lancashire today for 4 days as she is going to a festival with some friends so I shall be worrying about her; you can’t help it, can you. So that’s adding to it. Luckily I guess I don’t need to go to the shops for food as my cupboards are full of Exanate bars and shakes and pancakes thankfully so that is one big plus. I’m just going to have to ride this out and hope it goes sooner rather than later.
The One Thing I Do Know
I need to be in ketosis there is no other way. This has happened every time I come out of it. I knew I was on a lifestyle change but it’s even more important to me now and I have to be stricter with myself. A very low carb diet is the only way forward not just for diabetes but for chronic health conditions like Fibromyalgia etc. I think once the bars and pancakes have gone I will be back on shakes 4 times a day just as I was on the ITV’s The Fast Fix Clinic because I know that the Exante 4 shakes put me in ketosis and the effects on my fibromyalgia were nothing less than a miracle.
Apologies For Absence
So please accept my apologies for my absence yesterday and possibly for the next several days while I recuperate. Me and my PJs have a long session together I think. I didn’t want you thinking I had forgotten about you all I’m still here but just in the background for a couple of days or so.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and will report back as soon as I can.
In the meantime read through some of my old posts there are a lot to choose from.
Lots of Love
