Long time no post update...

So, I am out of Physical Therapy and joined Planet Fitness.  I went for the second time today.  I'm supposed to get into a three day a week schedule so my plan is for Mondays and Wednesdays after work and a weekend day.  I'm thinking that if I go right after school before going home I'll stick with it.  Once I'm home, I don't want to move!

I have started taking Savella and I think it's working - it has been okay on my stomach so that is good!  I'm still having problems with my hands though but I'm beginning to wonder if that is more of the Osteoarthritis rather than the Fibromyalgia...  I still can't knit more than a couple of rows and typing is even stressful on them...  very frustrating to say the least!

I bought a medical ID bracelet but what I really liked about the place I got it from is that they have an online database.  So, the front of my bracelet has my name, allergic to gluten, Raynaud's Disease and Fibromyalgia.  On the back, they have the 1-800 number and the website with my pin number where I logged in all my meds, my husband's cell phone number, my parent's number and my Doctor as well as all my allergies.  If you are interested in the site, it's https://www.myihr.com.  They have different styles but I bought the "standard" stainless steel style.  Here is a pic of it:

So, that is my update for now... hopefully I'll have some knitting to share again at some point!
