Hello friends, I am struggling after being a mess with this heat. I have had fibro for a long time , I'm 59 yrs old and have had it to the point that it impacts my life for 20 yrs.
The problem I'm having with myself is that I feel between a rock and a hard place. When it comes to family and friends, most of them think that I should be able to push through and don't understand HOW many times I do try to push through. If I tell them I think I will have a hard time going somewhere do to the weather conditions or having to walk to much or whatever - they kind of roll my eyes. If I'm not honest and go anyway then I end of struggling and having to tell them I have to leave. I'm always the person having to leave and if you knew me you would learn that I love to partake and socialize and help clean up , etc.
How do you all handle this without beating yourself up ??? Any help or experience would be great !! Thank you so much.
Don't know what I would do without my friends - God bless you all !! xo PJ
Good morning! And it's been morning for me for a while. Alas.Four hours of sleep. Down at midnight (finally! the muscle relaxant kicked in and my back unkinked!)... and up when it wore off. Four hours. Ping! I see the doc again ASAP, but ASAP means "stand by for his phone call and run out door". Oh boy... As it's the weekend, I predict I will need another round of scar-scanning and so forth....
Good morning, everyone! How was your night? (Individual, collective, the usual.)Mine was horrible.Hubby was out late for work function and the cats were not happy. I finally crashed at 1 AM, with a headache, which remains firmly in place now. UGH. I skipped pain group therapy yesterday b/c... pain... so at least the kinks in my back weren't aggravated by evil furniture.***Today is apparently...
