Thank you Liz and I am glad you are safely home

I hope everyone had a good safe Easter. I am a little mad at my uncle. He was supposed to pick up my grandmother on Friday. She was going to spend the weekend with him at his apartment. Last minute he changed it to picking her up on Saturday. Ok fine still a little mad but ok then I find out that he did pick her up on Saturday but brought her back home on Sunday morning. So she spent most of Easter by herself. Who does that to a 90 year old women. I was so mad.

I hurried our dinner so that savannah could take Mikey back to Nana's with food. Savannah lives close to her and could have brought her to my house when she came over.

So she has food for a few days and she's not alone now that Mikey's there

I have a galley kitchen there is not much space and I had ken and savannah under foot the whole time it was enough to drive a person batty.

Ok I am done. I am going to try and get some rest. The cats got me up at 2:30 am again. Not sure what up with sunny the cat he wants to be by my side 24/7

Cake, Sunny knows you are sick and he's trying to protect you. I hope you get some rest and I am very glad you were able to send food to your Grandmother. That was very mean of your uncle.

Liz, I'm so glad you're back! I hope you're not as sore tomorrow. Thank you for starting the new thread. I appreciate it so much.

I went to my brother's house for dinner today. It was nice to see everyone. I hadn't been there since before Christmas.

I go to get more shots in my spine very early in the morning. No fun at all. Please say a prayer for me or send a good thought. I'd really appreciate it.

I hope you've all had a wonderful Easter. Gus, thank you for that lovely old fashioned Easter picture. It is adorable!

Belle sends sloppy kisses to everyone!

~Gentle hugs to you all this early morning~

I hope that everyone made it through Easter. We had a very quiet and peaceful one thankfully.

I am having a rough start to my week with pain waking me up around 2:30 this morning. I just gave in 2 hours later and took some pain meds. I am trying to stay positive and tell myself that the week can only get better. I am hoping to catch another hour or two of sleep but we'll see.

Jan, I am thinking of you with your shots. I hope that they go well today. Give Belle a hug for me.

Hoping that the week starts in the least painful way possible for all. Keep smiling.

Thank you Liz and good to see you back (and everyone, too).
Is today only Monday??? I'm sure I've lived 3 days today. I haven't had such high tension pain since... I can't remember when. I think I still have some Cyclobenzaprine somewhere (Flexeril). I've got to find it.
This is way higher than my tolerable norms.
Hugs all

Default Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #3

Yesterday was a really rough day fatigue and pain wise. I fell into the 'why me' trap for a bit yesterday but after reflecting on it I remember what a friend said to me once which is that she tries to think 'why not me?' I let that sink in for a bit as I was curled up on the couch and it hit me. Why me? Because I am strong enough to power through the pain and the health flare ups that come my way. Yes, I wish that I didn't have lupus or lupus related health issues but the fact of the matter is that I do and have since 1998. I have powered through a lot of obstacles during those years and I am strong enough to keep doing so even or perhaps especially during particularly nasty flares like the one that is currently trying to kick my booty.

It got me to thinking. I am surrounded by some really strong people here on this forum. If I could I would take all of your pain and suffering away but I can't. What I can do is hold your hand as you battle through and continue to be in awe of your strength.

Have a blessed day. ~Gentle hugs~

Hi everyone. New to this thread. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year after many years of being frustrated that the doctors never found anything wrong. I have been having challenges trying to find other people to talk to about this as it is sometimes hard to explain to someone who isn't going through it. Plus I don't like to put too much on my husband as he has MS, so he is going through his own issues.

My current state at the moment is in pain, but at least I have today off from work as a vacation day.

Welcome, Mystic! You'll find loving people here who are really supportive. We're glad you're here.

I would love to answer each of you, but I can only sit here for a short while. I'm in a lot of back pain. The pain will subside some with time. The Dr. told me he's going to send me to a nuero surgeon when I am finished with the shots because my leg and foot are going numb and I'm unstable to walk when it happens.

Belle is having a really hard day. She hears people out the door and is crying a lot. The neighbor's gf stopped me today and told me she is worried about Belle because she cries when I go to the Dr. She said my neighbor told her to stay out of it because Belle would be fine, but she felt I should know. I told her that Belle doesn't cry long after I'm gone, she'll be fine and not to worry about it. She honestly is concerned and she's part of the cause! She also told me her cat, which is not supposed to be here wanted to play with Belle. The cat was arching it's back and hissing. It's also twice the size of Belle. I told her Belle would not be playing with her cat! My blood pressure feels like it's going through the roof.

This week is especially painful and stressful. Please know that I am thinking of you every day and that I am also praying for you every day. Thank you for always being there for me and for Belle.
