|Hugging---fur kids' style|
I sobbed after hitting the pavement and realizing what I had done. Yes, it was painful but that's not the reason I cried. In an instant, all the ramifications of the accident flashed through my mind. I had finally learned how to manage my fibromyalgia and its assorted health problems. I knew this injury would set me back months to when my symptoms were not controlled.
It's a good thing at the time I didn't know how badly the accident would set me back. Unfortunately, now I know. The poor sleep, persistent stomach problems, fatigue and widespread pain (typical fibromyalgia symptoms) have usurped the wrist as my problem.
Fortunately, I know what to do to put my body back under control. But it's harder this time, especially since I know just a few short months ago, I felt the best I had in years.
I guess I need to share my journey with others this time. That's why I am changing the look and title of my blog to Fibromyalgia: Meet Your Match. I hope others will benefit from what I share.
|Mini blintzes filled with lactose-free yogurt and dab of sunbutter|
|Roll them or eat them flat or even plain|
I eat some of these things but in sparse quantities. I mainly follow a modified paleo diet which is high in protein and veggies. I do include lactose-free dairy (not strict paleo), including yogurt, kefir and some cheeses.
2 T. farmers' cheese
1 T. sunbutter or other seed or nut butter
stevia, to taste
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. vanilla powder or extract
Additional sunbutter and yogurt for filling
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spritz the parchment paper lightly with olive oil. Mix the ingredients in a small bowl. Use a tablespoon to divide the mixture into six mounds on the baking sheet. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Remove the oven and allow to cool.
Eat the cookies as they are or roll them into blintzes by filling with a dab of lactose-free yogurt, sunbutter or even a drizzle of chocolate.
