I'm getting to ready to visit my mom in Michigan. My two kids and I are actually riding the Megabus. You can get tickets as low as $1 a person depending on how far in advance you book your trip. I decided to take the bus because it's hard for me to drive long distances. It's also a lot less money.
I was a little concerned about the trip because I was just recently diagnosed with Factor V Leiden. It just means I'm more susceptible to blog clots. I knew I wouldn't be able to get up and walk around. I'll be on the bus for almost six hours. The doctor said I have to give myself an injection of a low dose of blood thinner on the day I leave and the day I get back. At least I won't be worried about sitting for so long now. I'm hoping I feel better when I get to my mom's. I've been in a lot more pain this week and feeling real tired. I did get to go to my chiropractor yesterday and had a massage. I always feel better after a massage. I just wish it would last longer than a day. I know I am one of the lucky ones that can afford a massage. My husband actually got me a year's membership for Christmas. What are some of the ways you make yourself feel temporarily better when dealing with your chronic illness?
