That's bad news, countryryder, I'm so sorry that this has happened to you. :( Will be keeping fingers crossed for you to find the easiest way how to cope with the situation!

The weather here... One day it is relatively warm, your ordinary, rainy Latvian autumn...and the next thing you know - there's a HUGE blizzard, HUGE wind, snowfall goes close to 10 centimeters and the weather forecast says that the temperatures might drop to -10C Sunday morning! And I'm wearing my waterNOTproof sneakers today...

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Country my grandma was diagnosed several years ago with Fibromyalgia. They figure hers was brought on from a car accident. Do they know what has caused yours? It is still somewhat of a medical mystery. I know they have a few drugs to treat it or well more treat the symptoms but there is nothing to completely control it, unless they have something new on the market now. Sorry to hear you have that at such a young age, hopefully they can get it under control for you.

And here's an update on Lizzy, she has been stalled the last 3 nights because of super cold rain. Yesterday morning when she was put out she had her medium weight blanket on but she was so upset to be out in rain/snow/sleet that she stood at the gate waiting to come back in. When I got there she was standing in her shelter looking quite pissed off.

So here's a picture of the pretty, pretty, princess all tucked in her stall for the night.

Yea,it was pretty shocking! Although,looking back now,the signs were there,they were just being masked by my other condition..
Have to run a bunch of tests to rule out some things,so waiting on that. Doc put me on something to help me sleep and get my muscles to relax.It worked;I managed to sleep right through the night,first time in a very long time! I have to quit my job,which I had just started a month a go. :(
Have to make some diet changes,exercise, and avoid stress.
Besides that,basically it's a matter of trial and error to figure out what my triggers are,what helps or makes it worse,life style changes I'll have to make,ect.

They are guessing that mine was brought on by the same viral infection that gave me the heart condition,or by the heart condition itself. Apparently, it is starting to be discovered that there is a high correlation between Chronic Pericarditis and Fibromyalgia.
And yes,from what I have been researching,it is a Huge mystery still,and nope,there is no cure..The doctor put me on one thing,but from what I have heard,you want to try and find a way to deal with the pain and others symptoms someway other than the drugs,as the drugs themselves aren't so great either..

That's no good. I don't think my grandma ever took the medications for it but she has pain pills for various other things lol. At least you know what the problem is though and can find ways to help ease the pain that comes with it.

So today, after several sessions of re-introducing Snickers to the bit from the ground, I decided it is time to do it from the saddle. I asked for help from the one barnmate who is very experienced and a friend of mine, to ride him, as I'm not really good at riding with a bit. We used this type of snaffle - Horze Loose ring snaffle, double jointed | Horze Loose Ring Snaffles . Snickers has a past of being introduced to only brutal riding with a bit (see-sawing and heavy hands right away; it was done by his previous owner as an attempt to get him used to a bit before showing to potential buyers... ), so he was a bit wary in the beginning, trying to escape any pressure, going behind the vertical and so on, but as soon as he understood that nobody is going to be hard and heavy on him this time, he was such a perfect boy! He even started seeking for contact and flexing nicely in turns, and after that I rode him on a loose rein, just letting to get accustomed to the feeling. He wants to please so much it's downright adorable.

Then I decided to cut his mane a bit, but I accidentally overdid it, so it's a lot shorter now than I had planned. Oh well - at least it's winter, so no bugs around, and the mane will grow back much more evenly now. I'll get some pictures later. :) He actually looks like an actual Welsh D section cob now.

Snickers' new haircut - look, he even had muscles under that thick mane all the time!
