Monday, oooo I dread Mondays, the pain

Slowly opened my eyes this morning hoping against hope that it was really Sunday, but no luck. Back to the daily grind, and dialysis will be so painful today, extreme cramping because I know I drank too much the past 3 days after being deprived in the hospital, so am on fluid overload, which will cause unreal cramps near the end of treatment. Imagine getting those twisting, horribly tight Charlie Horses in your legs, body, arms, head, and being unable to stand to walk them out, having to just sit in the chair and let the muscles twist unnaturally and burn and the pain...Oh I dread this today. Then they continue to grab me up in spasms long after I get home and during the night, having me leap out of bed to try to walk them loose. Oh the fun...

I did get 2 samples of my challenge group charms done, where we use everyday items to make a charm. The vintage one needs some more on it, the fun and games charm is complete. We will be doing monthly swaps with different themes on scrapbook dot com. They are so fun to make, I enjoy it a lot. I may get burned out, but for now it is still fun.


  1. You are so talented...but you did not get it from me!~ I do not have an artistic bone in my body. You and Brenda make up for it. Love you, Mom

  2. I know what you mean, I am fearing burnout at some point oo, but for now I am excited about the next few ideas for charms. So we will see how long I stay excited and there is a buzz keeping people interested.

    I am so sorry you. Have to go thru all that. I never knew you could deal with such things in dialysis. Cramps are so hard to deal with, so painful!

    Why does that happen if you drink so much liquids, what is the effect is does on your muscles? Wish there was something we could do to help!
