I couldn’t decide on what my blog topic should be this week, since I have a million ideas floating around in my head, most of them also written on a sticky note on my computer. I’m also a few weeks overdue for a post, so my apologies. I’ve decided then rather pick a specific topic this week, I’m just going to share the last few weeks of my life with everyone.

I had been struggling with severe nerve pain in my left leg for weeks. I have no idea what brought it on but I assume something lupus-related but who knows?! The pain was quite intense most of the time, and I had to call in sick to work twice for it. I had a massage (full body) asking my RMT to focus on that nerve pain, since using the thumper at home seemed to help temporarily. However, it was going to my naturopath that delivered amazing relief. My ND suggested that a shot of B12 might help since it’s something she gives to her patients with sciatica and gives them relief. I was a little skeptical but decided to give it a go. She gave me the shot in my left hip. The rest of the day went on the way all the days leading up to it had…
And then, the next morning I had no nerve pain. Poof! Totally gone. And now, 2 weeks after that shot, it still has not returned. I think I might be sold on this B12 stuff.
Goldmine Trail, near Superior, AZ
Two days after having the B12 shot, I left on an airplane for Phoenix, AZ with my friend, to stay with my parents for a week (they are snowbirds). Even though it was unseasonably cool down south, it was still a lot warmer than home, and I always find that the warm air and pretty much constant sunshine make me feel good. Additionally, having a hot tub to soak in every night, and a chance to do some epic, scenic hikes, definitely has a positive effect on my body. Guess I already have to start planning my next adventure to a warmer climate because anything that makes my body feel better gets a ton of points in my book.
