Yesterday my DH & I both had the day off & it was a great day! Sunny & mid 50's, so we packed up the dog & headed for a nearby national forest for some hiking. We both love to hike & the dog? Forget about it! He was on cloud nine! I bring a book along and when I gauge I have gone as far as I can & still get back, I find a comfy spot & read until my boys come back to get me. Yesterday, though, I walked the whole course & kept up! Didn't have to stop to rest even once & didn't take any pain meds! I know this is due to the Savella & I am so grateful to have found something that works! Today, it is cold & rainy & I can feel the barometric change in my body & yet it is still much better than before. Instead of lying in bed trying to decide if getting up to go to the bathroom will be worth the pain, I am snuggled up in my favorite chair watching old movies! I am blessed!
