Sole Water


Have you heard of sole water? What about pink Himalayan salt? I am always dehydrated especially in the warm months. I also have low blood pressure. My doctor told me take a pinch of salt in the morning to help with the dizzy spells. It didn’t help and I found out why. Using regular table salt doesn’t work for me. Pink Himalayan salt does. It is good to use in your diet anyway because of the many minerals in it. Very different from table salt. Let me know your experience with it. 

Check ou the link below for more information. Always talk to your doctor. 

How to make sole water.

Trying To Stay Focus

It was a hard decision, but I had to stop school. I stopped about a year ago. My fibro flares increased due to the stress I was under. I now try to focus on eating better, lowering my stress, taking my vitamins, resting and the many other things I have to do to stay NORMAL. Sorry it’ been so long since I’ve posted. I plan to share more now that my fatigue level is lower. More to come…..

 

Bittersweet Birthday

Today is my 37th birthday. I feel like I’m 57 (thanks to fibromyalgia), mentally 48, & look about 32. 🙄 In my 37 years I have lost 1 parent, 2 grandparents, 1 sister, cousins, aunts, uncles, & high school friends. The loved ones that are still here make my day great, but there is some bitterness in not getting those calls from those that are no longer here.

So, I  challenge you to show the one’s you love how you feel and spend some time with them if you can. Your positive presence is the best gift. Have a happy & joyous day all.

Fibro Flare

Today I  have a mild flare that pushes me to use my cane. The good thing is that I  am in a good mood and my energy level is normal not fatigued. There are many Fibro Warriors that have it worse than me, & I am always thankful that I still have my independence and ability to work. We are blessed in sooo many ways. Spreading strength & love this Friday.

Remembering An Artist

I’ve had this bag I think since 2005. I decided to take it out of my closet and use it. People have been commenting on it and asking where I bought it. I bought it from the official Aaliyah site years ago. The proceeds went to research for a cure for cancer  but they no longer sale them.

When the weather finally breaks in the summer, I get in an Aaliyah mood. I do miss my girl from my hometown Detroit. Playing her music when its warm gets me in that summer mood (Rock The Boat). I don’t have 1 favorite song. I have many. Please comment and post your favorite Aaliyah song or songs.

If you don’t know who she is, or never heard her music, please go on YouTube and look her up.

You can go to http://www.aaliyah.com to make a donation to the Aaliyah memorial fund.

Dog Therapy

Have you ever heard that people with dogs live longer? Have you heard of dog therapy?Dog therapy is one of the treatments some fibromyalgia warriors do to help them feel better. I was blessed enough to get me a little morkie (Maltese mixed with Yorkie) last year.  He helps me take the focus off my pain at times. He has so much personality to be so little. I posted a picture below.

Tux

Yes, he is a teacup dog and he is not going to get any bigger. Yes, this is really my dog. He’s not a stuffed toy. 🙂

Coloring

Adult coloring books are the new thing. You can get a child’s coloring book and some crayons, but if you are really into art, you might like adult coloring books better. You can get them from craft stores, Walmart, and amazon. Some are a little pricy. The coloring pencils can get pricey too.
