{Happy Birthday with a Pain Free Back}

Good news is that I was able to celebrate my Birthday with a Pain Free Back!
That in itself was the BEST gift one could wish for after more than a week of excruciating pain.
Because of my chronic kidney disease I cannot take any over the counter medication and neither did I want to start again on opiates, prescribed by my doctor. 
That's what I took in the end of 2009 when I was diagnosed with severe mid back arthritis...(?)
It resulted in being completely paralyzed, due to a rare auto immune disease and only with Prednisone I was able to move again. But after taking that for about two years, my kidneys paid a price for curing this Polymialgia rheumatica.
So I'd rather tough it out and take nothing, except my daily supplement from +Costco Wholesale the Youtheory Turmeric capsules that come with 180 in a pot.
Will show more below...
First a few Birthday dinner pictures...
Sorry for the poor quality... snapshots taken by husband Pieter with my iPhone, he even left out a friend...
I wore two layers of cashmere, a sleeveless mock neck and the very thin sweater with poetry that I showed in a previous post: {Cashmere Words of Wisdom & Update} 
Feeling doubly warm with this score from Last Call by Neiman Marcus that I also wore when I did FaceTime with Mom, two days before her death...
Since we had to arrange things last minute, due to my condition and not knowing if I would be able to sit through such a 5-course dinner, we were in a cozy group of four friends. Very special evening though!
At Ristorante da Maria from +Dublin Farm "Come Home To The Country" I always do eat the dessert as well. Even being diabetes type 2... 
Here they just served mine with the birthday candle on top.
This was the choice of dinner and Pieter and I opted for the salmon.
Turmeric by Youtheory from Costco. Just click the hyperlink to go to my Pinterest board for further info after clicking on the photo!
This is what I have been taking during the time of my excruciating back pain and it sure did give me some relief! Usually I take one tablet per day but I went to two.
Turmeric seems to be an excellent anti-inflammatory support and also is good for your kidneys. Just click the hyperlink.
We might indeed be able to learn a great deal from countries where this has been used for centuries, such as India, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and as part of Ayurveda and other branches of traditional medicine.
Youtheory® Turmeric Advanced Formula features Curcumin C3 Complex® - a patented turmeric extract that contains minimum 95% curcuminoids.

Costco just had as discount on these and I did stock up and will also mail some to my youngest sister in The Netherlands who suffers from Fibromyalgia.
