A quick update

It's been several days since my last post. Although I have written down more than ten ideas that rest on my heart, I find it difficult to sit down and thoughtfully construct a post.

I usually write during nap and rest time and some in the evenings as well (I'm not one who can write ten minutes at a time...perhaps that is a skill I should learn). As you know, I have been experiencing extreme fatigue and joint pain, which has increased. Now, I spend each morning homeschooling and spending quality time with the kids, much of the afternoons napping, and the evenings doing household chores, etc.

My doctor is running a few more tests to determine whether or not I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Also, my initial thyroid tests indicate that it is under-active. I had more blood drawn for a test panel earlier this week.

So, for those of you who are concerned, I'm really fine over all...just getting my rest when I can.

In His Palm,
Angela

Angela ~ I'm so sorry you've been unwell. I have a swinging thyroid and I know how tiring that can be. Keep resting!!!! (And my Bible isn't so dusty this week!)

Misty said...

I also am sorry you have not been feeling great. I hope test results come back quickly and conclusively. I also can't write 10 min at a time!!

I'm glad to hear that although things are not optimal, you are doing okay and seeking rest as you need.
I have missed your posts, but certainly understand. I mean really how ARE we supposed to juggle all this?? :)

I'm not one of those writers, either.

Praying the drs will find out something & get you on the road to recovery soon, friend.

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

I pray you are feeling better soon. I do miss reading your blog yet I am more concerned with your healthy and you finding a balance.

I actually find I write so much better when I do it in small blocks of time.

Sorry to hear that you are not well quite yet. Not fun -especially with the kiddos around. Check out T-Tapp - she has specially designed "exercise" that helps with fatigue. (I say "exercise" because you stand in one place and it can be as quick as 15 minutes.) Prayers :)

Praying for you, Angela. For strength to get through these days and for clear test results to come back.

Ugggggh! I have a defunct thyroid too. I pray you do not have arthritis.

Hugs, D

I'm glad you are getting some rest. I hope you get some answers and remedies, soon!

Kimberly said...

I am so sorry to read about your struggles with the joint pain and the fatigue. Being a mommy is enough work in itself without adding in health issues. I will be praying for you!

Love and prayers,
Kimberly

Angela...take care of you. I'm praying for you right now.

angie said...

Take care, you! Thinking of you.

Praying for you and your family. Blessings.

Hi Angela, I found you via Lucy Mills's blog network on Facebook and thought I'd say hi. There is nothing worse that fatigue and joint pain. I have aches and pains, and tiredness (like, right NOW, even though I've just woken up!) from suspected fibromyalgia, and it's hard work! I pray that your results will return with some positive news, and that you will be relieved of some pain.

I also cannot blog for 10 minutes at a time. What I thought was a short blog blab last night, turned into an hour long marathon with my latest post! Blogging is wonderful, and even though I feel that I could be putting my time to other things, I am touching lives through my words, and for the good of God, so it's a good thing!

Anyway, I look forward to reading more of your posts, and have joined your network on FB.

Love in Him, Paula :-)

Elizabeth said...

i said a prayer for you...keep us updated.

Lucy said...

I suffer from chronic fatigue so know what it's like feeling perpetually exhausted. And joint pain is horrible. I really hope the doctors can find the cause and give you the best possible treatment and advice.

elizabeth embracing life said...

I know this may sound hokey, but my daughter and I both experienced simular symptons. Dr.'s had a very hard time with a diagnosis. Basically we cut wheat out of our diets and almost overnight the symptoms all went away. Now if I eat anything with wheat I crash and ache for the next few days. Praying you find out what this is.

Gretchen said...

Angela, that so sucks right now for you. I'll pray now, and as you come upon my heart. Take care of yourself. Let the blog go if you need to. We'll all be here. Praying you health and peace. (((hugs)))gretchen
