Hello fellow fibro friends,
I am in California and we have a heatwave (I know it's all relative) but I struggle to be outside when it's in the 90's even high 80's.
My question is .... I had a baby shower for my daughter at my mom's yesterday and my mom didn't turn on the air condition - I ended up many symptoms of heat stroke and had to go upstairs and rest and eventually went home to get into the air conditioning.
I am frustrated because my mom know's I have this issue and said she would turn the air on during the shower and set up the day before but chose not too. I wasn't the only one who was hot. People were asking me if I was okay and I said I'm just getting over heated.
I'm asking because I feel like a failure because I had the leave the shower and couldn't help clean up . People who don't have health issues just don't understand. It makes me sad and want to to and yet I have to make peace with my fibro ( the over heating has gotten worse since the fibro).
How do you feel like a worthy person with this condition and people don't understand. I've had it for a long time but when I can't attend a function or have to leave early I feel terrible.
Any words of advice or wisdom would be very much appreciated . Blessings to you all, 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...
