It's been pretty much the same ol same ol lately. The test at the doctor's office came back pretty normal, so we are still in search of the underlying cause of the "Musical Pains". My boy is going to his 2nd Karate class tonight. The classes are Tues & Thurs at 5:45. That sucks, 'cuz I don't get to go :(
That rocks 'cuz it gives Shayne & Daddy something to do together on a regular basis. And Daddy was told "No coaching from the sidelines." I think he may have problems with this....but he'll be ok, I'm sure, I mean seriously, those folks are fully capable of putting him in his place - they teach Karate! I like that they have something positive to do together that, while my hunny is involved, he's not really involved.
I love my hunny, and he's a great dad, I would never say, or even think, otherwise, but in the discipline department he has a bit of a "drill instructor" mentality. In his defense, before our boy came along, he had never been truly exposed to kids. He has one sister, no nieces or nephews, well we have a neice now but that doesn't really count, because she came after. It's been a long time since he was a kid. He doesn't understand that kids hafta run, jump, yell, talk, ask questions, try not to go to bed, etc. They don't have any choice in it, it's in their nature...and our boy is unstoppable. He has more energy than a lot of kids, truly he does. He sleeps little - 6-7 hours a day. I know he should need more, but how do you force a kid that isn't tired to sleep? You can put him in bed, and he will lay there awake for hours. Every time. It worries me a bit, but I've told his doctor, and he doesn't seem concerned, so...
Anyways, Daddy will be the one taking him to & from most classes. I may get every other Tues, when I'm off, we'll see.
In other news *grin* I have been given a new med for the pain. It's called Lyrica - anyone out there that is familiar with it, I'd appreciate info on how it affected you. It makes me a bit loopy for a while after I take it, but then I get tired.
Oh, oh, oh - I actually slept ALL NIGHT the first night I took it! Woohoo! I didn't last night, but we'll see what transpires :)
Ok, that's all for now - gotta work ewwww!
See ya laterzzzzz!

Muscle pain...if it is combined with the fatigue, inability to sleep, frequent headaches, you may want to talk to your doctor about chronic fatigue syndrome. I have a hard time believing in it and think it is too easy for something to really be wrong but the doctor doesn't want to continue looking but...I have been going through this for four years and still no solution. Good luck!
