Edited to add: Did some very gentle hip opening stretching, did get a small amount of relief for a moderate period of time. Also did some stretches for my neck/t-zone that a physical therapist taught me when I was pregnant with Fintan. 
Pretty awful today overall. A lot of myofacial pain, some joint pain. Joint pain on the right side; wrist, hip, ankle. My spine, t-zone included, also bad. Nausea, hot/cold flashes, sweats, sinus congestion, mucousy cough lingers. Nerve/spine pain is bad right this second. My jaw has been very painful, a headache accompanies this of course. There was some major upheavals yesterday, I’m guessing that’s why I feel extra awful today. Stupid stress hormones.

Still managed to care for two kids mostly myself, make breakfast/lunch/dinner, also got a nap thanks to my spouse. Oh and Little Bug (the baby) woke up at 3am and didn’t really go back to sleep. She’s a handful right now. Four months old today, so she is hitting a growth spurt plus sleep regression and teething. Plus my son has been acting out more due to the changes. Still seriously considering getting him assessed. He’s been having bad screaming fits when upset/angry/frustrated. He’s a great big brother, I’m really proud of him.

I have a good friend coming to visit tomorrow. We’ve managed to hang out almost every Sunday for the past month and a bit. Mainly because they come here. So that will be nice. Kidlets will be off visiting with my parents. 

Hopefully I feel less like shit tomorrow.

Short Update – July 7th, 2015

I feel awful without my meds. I am taking 2-3 Tylenol 3’s over the course of the day. My doctor prescribed them for me so I could take less of the OTC Tylenol w/ codeine and my high dose Naproxen. It is working out well. When I have taken my Naproxen it was for three days at a time, which I’ve done twice. Codeine kinda fucks me up but whatever.

Work is hectic and exhausting. So far the only good thing about it is I’ve been closer to home. And the cash I guess, we need the money.

We are in the middle of a heat wave and what I would call a drought. Too tired to find you sources at the moment. The forest fires are really bad and have blanketed my region in smoke. There was a fire on the other side of the mountain from us just the other day. Excitement. (Note the sarcasm). My breathing has been yucky. Need to call the doctors office about my lung function appointment.

There’s other stuff going on in my personal life that I won’t get into here but it is also exhausting.

I’m in a grumpy, exhausted, “just done” head space today. At least I have less walks then yesterday.
