I'm back in NY (not for long) and the cold weather is really kicking my butt. One evening I was chopping an onion for supper, I felt a lot of pain all over my body and couldn't finish doing it. Another time I was freezing waiting for a bus on the Upper East Side of Central Park a few evenings ago (yes, I know it is winter) and it felt like someone had beat the living stuffing out of me. Based on blood tests, my doctor believes I have Fybromyalgia. No cure, no tests for it and no real medication protocol for it. It appears to attack the muscles, but feels like arthritis. I have to lose some weight (not surprised about that one) and start physical therapy. I got a cortisone shot yesterday and was suppose to fast to take another blood test this morning. Blew that by eating some ginger bread men at 2:00 am that were calling me in my sleep, so I will try again tomorrow. Can't wait to get back to Miami, FL for the heat wave!
