It hurts to the bone…..

Namaste an greetinss frum thee Purrfect Pad. Have wee efurr told youss’ just how much you meen to us?? Mee triess to as much as mee can as does LadyMum. Wee both know many of youss wunder why wee not visit thee way wee used to. Sum of youss’ are lucky to see us once or twice inn a month. on yur bloggiess.  There iss a reason. Mee an LadyMum mee-yowed about this situashun an dee-cided LadyMum wood do a post to efurryone to xplain fingss. So mee iss ternin it over to LadyMum…Hello Everyone: First I want to say I’m NOT looking for sympathy or pity. Secondly, I’m NOT looking for medical advice or suggestions. Thirdly, I hope everyone will understand how difficult my Life truly is & respect what I have to share. Many of you know I’ve had Fibromyalgia & Osteoarthritis since I was 25. I’ve coped well until 1998 (after a tobogganing accident that was NOT dealt with) when I started to have trouble walking. It took 2 1/2 years to be diagnosed with Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis aka DISH aka Forestier’s Disease. In short I have eagle shaped & sized bone spurs on all major joints & entire spine & pelvic bones. Back surgery is only 40% chance of success so not a good risk at all. My knees are destroyed from walking bone on bone & having spurs shredding ligaments. The health care system is in chaos in my country so there is little help for someone in my situation. I was told in 2001 I would be in a wheelchair by 2010 if I did not slow down. I slowed down somewhat & then had  Modified Hip surgery Oct. 2005 & that sorted my left hip out. After the infamous 2006 assault & injuries to me, I found it harder to get about. I went to Physiotherapy & a Chiropractor which helped moderately but not enough. I am still getting Lidocaine injections every 3-4 months altho’ my Doctor feels I’ve taken them for too long.

Every Winter I noticed more pain & less mobility. I was totally exhausted by November 2014 (when NYLABLUE went to be with Mingflower). I was going to take a break but as we all know this kitty came along:

Throwing caution to the wind, I adopted Purrince Siddhartha Henry & we sure have had a rollercoaster ride for the past 3+ years. However I love & adore him & want desperately to continue to give him a good life! His former owner Mary-Ellen & my feral cat buddy Sheila have stood by me thru this entire time helping us. For those 2 ladies I’m eternally grateful. Ok I digressed a bit….the point of this post is to tell everyone that my Fibro/OA/DISH has progressed to the point I am unable to keep up with daily life AND visit up to 50 blogs we follow. When the 3 conditions flare at the same time, it is like having Multiple Sclerosis. It is excruciatingly painful & debilitating. Also I now have Arthritis in my knuckles & wrists so writing & typing are painful even on a good day. This Winter I have had more time in bed flat on my back then upright. That is why I’m not visiting blogs regularly & why I only blog weekly. I just can’t keep up as I used to do & it makes me very sad. I enjoy all of your blogs & our friendships!!! The reality is I will visit when I can; blog for Siddhartha Henry when I can; answer replies when I can…..

The other reality is if I do not improve with Spring/Summer I will have to review my entire life & make some serious decisions. I hope all of you will understand & remain our friends. Many of you have my phone number & email addy & mailing addy so we can keep in touch. We will still be blogging & visiting as & when I can. Thank you for your love, support & friendship. Hopefully we will remain friends for years to come!! {{{HUGS}}} Sherri-Ellen.

Mee-you LadyMum you did it!!! Mee can tell you LadyMum has been agonizin over ritin this post since Deecemburr. Mee finkss efurryone knowin will bee a ree-lief fur her. Fank you fur reedin her post an fur beein such good furendss to us. May thee Eye of Buudha Kat bee upon efurryone who followss us an are our deer furendss. Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=
