Well, I'm a bit depressed by my visit to the Rhumotologists. The good news is that I do not have RA. The bad news is that there is nothing more than what my PCP has already done that she can do for my fibro. I will continue to research and try out things suggested on the web sites for us (no aspertame, cut down on night shades and nitrates, etc.) in the hopes that it will help, but apparently the people that are helped by different things and the people who are not are so sporadic that it's been very difficult to definitely say "this is bad, this is good" about anything.
On a different topic, I got up at 5:30 this morning to cook up some sausage, egg and cheese. I "slept" with the 3 yo last night while my sister, BIL and DN slept in their bed. They left to go to the hospital for my sister's c-section at 5:00. I did not sleep at all for being woken when the baby moved around. Fortunately my DNs will sleep together tonight in their bed and I can take my sister's bed as they're both staying at the hospital for the next two nights. I just hope I can function today with no sleep as I'll have both kids all day. The dog started whining or I would have stayed in bed, but if she wakes the 3yo then we'd ALL be up for the duration and kids woken up early = crabby!! ;P I just hope they keep sleeping so I can cat nap in the chair for a while. It will be nice when they get the addition to their house done so that my DNs can both have their own room again... then when I visit they can double up and I can use one of their beds and sleep ALONE... and maybe actually sleep LOL.
