I currently have a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia with the potential for an additional diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue when I see the specialist at the end of August.

Here is what is happening:A little background info...

    Mayhem Monday Check-in

    Good morning. I see I have teeny tiny type when I type in a big box, but big type in a teen-tiny box. Thank you DS.Murphy's Law struck already. I clicked on "my support groups" and got a blank page. Again. Really?Then I spilled my morning hot cocoa. Not on me, but hey, that's chocolate gone to waste!And my to-do list got longer (yes, that was possible, and I didn't think it was, silly puma).And...
  • I guess I'm going whine, pout, feel sorry for myself, or something, in this thread. My Aunt is visiting my brother and wife right now, and she took a bunch of pictures at my brother's farm. He has a new semi, fancy new machine shed, new tractor. And their gorgeous remodeled home were all posted on Facebook. My aunt and uncle are very materialistic as he worked for NASA training astronauts, and is...

    Weekend Weirdness Check-in

    Good morning! I love how we have HUGE fonts except in the box as we type. *headdesk* I can't magnify the page, btw, on iPad. Gah. Anyway, slept awful. The social worker called and grilled me and screened *me*, and I just floudnered and babbled and felt so stuid and useless and criticized. Some of that is from my end, I know. Some is just her job to do that. The rest? Why is it odd for me to be...

    One week

I'm already getting upset stomachs from three Cymbalta, the restless leg medication is not helping at all and I'm naseaus all day. Ick. Thursday night my boyfriend and I got in a fight about God knows what but I'm sure my irrationality didn't help. The next day we woke up and got it...

    TGIFriday Fry-Baby Check-in

    Good morning. Well, we're in the Fry-Baby (or baby-sized deep fryer for those who are blissfully ignorant of my hubby's passion for deep-fried veggies). Sizzle, and pop. No rain, no clouds, just bake the pizza on the roof of the car weather. Asphalt parking lot temps around 150*F by day's end. (Asphalt is a byproduct of petroleum, and is a huge heat sponge, and re-radiator of heat. I've stood on...
