Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Weather setting off a fibro flare
We had an ice storm here in Ohio last night so the cold rain and damp has the fibro really flared up. I made myself do a workout and it helped a lot in that it loosened up the tight muscles. Sometimes it is hard to know which problem is causing the pain- the fibro, the chronic myofascial pain, the pain from my fusion in 1998, or the newest lumbar facet joint disease for which I get my 3rd round of injections for tomorrow.
The shots are helping a lot with the facet joint pain and the celexa and my wonderful psychologist are helping with the emotional pain and I must admit in spite of this current flare up I feel great- happy to be alive! I am also using my light box each morning and that helps a lot as well. Between the half hour of stretching each morning, daily meditation and medication, and journaling even when the pain goes up, I feel pretty good. My biggest problem right now is pacing myself as I want to do so much because I feel so good and then of course the pain goes up. Slowly but surely I am learning to pace a hard concept for me! It feels so good to be out of that dark place the depression and anxiety had me and accpeting the fact I needed an anti-depressant, and probably have for years! Life is good again!
