Pain. I Can Deal... 
So part of whatever-the-hell-is-going-on-with-me-now is that I have stomach pain and back pain. I THINK the stomach pain comes first and radiates into my back. But frankly, I'm not that sure. It's very low in my body, anyway. But this evening and night the stomach pain is MURDER. (ugh)

TMI: I'm constipated as I frequently am. I discussed this (yet again) with Leslie and said I didn't find that fiber was much help. She agreed saying some people were just 'slow' -- and Marilyn immediately agreed, as my gastro doctor was very clear about that with me.

I'm eating VERY LITTLE right now. And when my stomach hurts I really don't WANT anything to eat. (duh)

Today I had a small 'hunk' of a burrito. And some saltine crackers. I've had several cups of coffee. Oh! I had a small slice of bread. The neighbor brought over fresh baked bread for our belated Christmas gift and I had a slice (it's a very small loaf). And that's all I've had to eat. Unfortunately eating very little does not encourage my bowel to do its thing...

Marilyn wasn't feeling too hot this morning and stayed home. We both slept late.

Marilyn later went in to work for a meeting she had. She left around 3:30 and got home around 8:00.

While she was gone I went outside and worked on the 'feeding station' I have near the garage for the crows and other critters. I've had that up some time now and the wind never bothered it until recently! Now the frame which is light-weight metal got bent. I used duct tape and some pieces of wood to reinforce it. It's standing again, but I have no clue for how long... Marilyn saw it and didn't sound hopeful. Hahaha.

I talked to both sister Sue and my friend June tonight. I hadn't spoken to them and wanted to check in. I enjoy hearing the sound of a voice that I care about...

Loving "The Greatest Showman" soundtrack! Wonderful music.

Marilyn is LOVING her new iPhone! It's set up and working great now. Tonight we were trying to get the Jamoji speaker (looks like the poop emoji) to sync and having a pain -- but we reasoned it out, finally. That little speaker works great, by the way!

Marilyn was doing the treadmill and wanted the music. We were singing along part of the time! Great, great music.

My blood sugar today was AMAZING all day long! The highest it was ended up being 135 (!!!) AFTER EATING (unheard of!). But I was mostly in the 114 range all day long.

Not eating is great for diabetes, it seems. Hahaha. Well, as long as I don't get a LOW, that is!

I guess that's about it for today. We need to head to bed soon. We've been trying to go to bed before midnight, but it's hard.

I hope I hear results soon. I'd at least like to know why I'm having this pain. (sigh)

Sweet dreams!

I do hope they can figure out your pain, Charlie. It's a worry you don't need besides the awful discomfort.

Not that this would work for you, but it does for me: I take fiber One that was recommended by my gastro guy and one activia in the am which also gives me something on my stomach for pills. Works pretty well, of course everyone is different.

Have you tried brown rice, broccoli or cauliflower for your digestive issues? Works like a charm for me! :) And that's after recent surgery and taking Oxy for pain.

Make sure you are getting enough magnesium!
