Gus, I really love the fireplace scene.
Liz, So glad you know your own limits and are taking good care of yourself.
Please be gentle with yourself.

My rheumatoid factor was elevated and the TSH was elevated also. Both were normal last time. So now. I'm trying not to freak out, and I have a referral for a rheumatologist.

The one he would like me to see won't work money wise right now. (I owe the clinic money and would have to set up a payment plan just to make an appt.) So I got the name of a friend's rheumatologist, and I'm gonna try to get my doc to write the referral for him instead.

But I have to wait til Monday to call them and then with the holidays... ugh...

I keep trying to just tell myself if it is rheumatoid, then meds might actually help my pain cuz then they know why everything's hurting like this still. If it's not, well I'm already in this spot of pain and not knowing so I'm used to it.

It's just scary...
It can be very scary and very frustrating. Try to take it step-by-step. I hope this gets sorted out and you can become much more comfortable soon.
You deserve lots of self-compassion.

Have been in a lot of pain. (Fibro., Psoriatic Arthritis, etc.)
Saw rheumy and we are deciding on a biologic, probably Enbrel. (Trying to work this out with insurer.) Done with methotrexate.

Have lots of memories surfacing due to (triggered by) recent headlines of so much sexual abuse-- assaults, harassment, etc. Memories get easier to deal with as I age. Lots of disturbed sleep right now, too. (Started a thread on this in the PTSD forum, if anyone wants to join in there.)

We are all human. We all endure a lot.

Much Love to All.

Seems like all I do lately is battle people. I've been battleing the insurance and the place that did my last ct scan to get it paid. It's a mess then battling my daughter who just upsets me so much to the point I have to take extra heart meds.

I am battling bronchitis plus now my son is sick. Sorry I have no sympathy for him. He refuses to wear jackets or shoes and socks when he goes outside. It's be in the high 20's low 30's at night or once the sun goes down. My son has autism and mild retardation and a few other things but he works and he's 27 years old but at some point e has to take responsibility. Put a jacket in when you go outside. So my mom and grandmother are not to happy with me because.

But last minute I had to run him to the doctors and then the pharmacy plus I had to battle traffic to get him and since I was out do a few things. By the time I got home I couldn't move.

Today my daughter came by to help me shop for grocerys. She usually ends up costing me more but ok. Then she embarrassed me in the store all because she could not get wifi. This is my grocery store she doesn't go there anymore but I do. Then she said she was not going to help me unload the car I told her to leave and that she needs help.

I am cold, tired and I hurt so bad. Oh and I had to stop taking my muscle relaxer because it was causing dry mouth and a bad taste in my mouth so I had a few of my old muscle relaxers so I took them tonight.

I need sleep

So for ranting and I am sorry for everyone that is suffering

Sending healing vibes and hugs to everyone

I empathize with those who have fibro....I have pain myself and can't imagine how you put up with suffering for so long.

For the first time in weeks pain level is back to what I call "background noise." The weather warmed backup. I suspect that's helped.
