Good Morning, World

Yes, it’s still morning, and I’m up. Woke up at 7:30 or so. It looks like spring outside. It’s January. This concerns me, although why is beyond me. I have a link a friend sent me about foods to monitor with fibro. The only one I’ve noticed any real connection to illness is artificial sweeteners, which made my pain levels skyrocket. My homemaker bought ice cream and I didn’t notice it wasn’t made with sugar, so as I ate through the carton (come on, you know what I mean) I was in more pain every day. No more ice cream, pain went back to usual levels. Definite correlation. I’d suggest keeping track of when you eat what, and be aware of any changes, which may sometimes take a few days to appear. Nothing is easy with illness, is it? I hate keeping track of things, although I’ve been tracking my first thing before I get up temp for a week or so. It is consistently in the 96 degree range, with only once being 97 something. The average over the week was 96.5. I take a thyroid med, but I’m wondering if I need a larger dose. Once I find a new doctor, I plan to have a discussion about this. My old doctor and I are having a parting of the ways, although he doesn’t know it yet. Anyway, here’s the link:
