Sunday, Painful , Educational and Creative

My precious Bandit absolutely Hates to have his picture taken , but he reluctantly subjected himself to the ordeal for me.

Painful because of the stupid fibromyalgia . The Heal & Soothe that I take works - only I cannot afford the proper dosage to kill all the pain - only enough to kill the pain in my back and spine. Yea- so I love it for that.  But it would take the same dosage to do away with the pain in my hips and thighs and all those pressure points -which woke me up early this morning. I have dealt with it most of the day - then I have another test for it. It is called Oil of Oregano -very potent stuff. The strong phenol anti-oxidants destroy pathogenic bacteria, viruses and yeasts , which means it has many uses.

It is also a disinfectant and a pain killer.It can be used for ear, nose and throat infections , respiratory illnesses , candida, acne and also strong cancer fighting properties.

According to an article -Phytotherapy Research describes how oregano oil came before anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation, and is nearly as powerful as morphine as a pain - killer.  It is helpful because it penetrates the skin and reaches as far as the synovial fluid in joints, which helps arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sore muscles , sports injuries and back aches because it helps pull out toxins. They list all forms of arthritis , including fibromyalgia , which are caused by toxins. You are suppose to mix equal amounts of the oil with a carrier oil like extra virgin olive oil. So, that is what I resorted to . At the moment it seems to be dulling the pain and kind of a warm sensation. I Sure DO hope it can help. All of this constant pain makes life challenging.

O, one thing to note they do say: It is important not to confuse Oil of Oregano with common oregano that is used as a spice . Common oregano is typically Origanum Marjoram, while Oil of Oregano is derived from Origanum Bulgare. Make sure that the carvacrolconcentration is at least 70%.

I felt very bad today due to the pain but also the extreme fatigue, which I like to blame my thyroid. Then I would get very warm and take off my sweater and then be covered in chills. I also had trouble breathing -like my chest just could not absorb the oxygen my body needed. Top it off with my eyes complaining and I just had a lot going on.


I did  manage to pull off one pair of the cloud booties , size medium for my Christmas list.
I also manage to learn that I Can Not Substitute chenille yarn for any yarn in a slouchy hat pattern. I tried it and it was a disaster . I don't know why I did not have enough sense to realize that I would have to be a more relaxed yarn - but lesson learned. As usual I seem to learn everything the hard way. At least that way I can remember it. lol 


  1. Awww cute Bandit! I love the booties... they look incredibly soft.

  2. Oh Linda....I am so sorry about all the pain you have! My cousin has pain like that, and so I just now emailed her this blog post. I hope she will try this Oil of Oregano. I also hope your pain goes away real soon~ I always love your booties! Nice picture of Bandit.

    I am so sorry I have not been around much recently~ I think I go in and out of things. My hubby has been in Hawaii for the past 2 weeks, and just got home today. I am so glad to have him back home. His legs are very swollen though, and I am a little concerned about that. Praying he recovers well quickly before going back to work!
    HUGS to you~
