My pain is mostly fibro now,, just touching the tops of my shoulders or hips is like somebody slammed a hammer into the bones!! THAT is fibro. the arthritis pain is so much less, I have been enduring the pain of arthritis since age 21. It is just something I refuse to let stop my routines. The bomb dropped of fibro just kind of pushed me against the wall and told me , "yes, you will submit to the pain if I make it bad enough".
Fibromyalgia is a whole new dimension of body pain. it is not like an acute sudden pain like a headache or cut or slap. It is a deep, sharp, dull, thudding pain that sticks a big jolt of electricity into the points and tissues,,
I have tried epsom salts, massage, meds, TM.. I do wish I could afford accupuncture.. I would be a pincushion for anybody instantly if I had the $$$.

Today I had a very easy day at work.. For the first time ever in 23 years, I got to sit still for two whole hours when I first arrived. The rest was craziness, but I went home early and was glad to leave,, it is so hot and humid,, still at 89%,, pure thick fog this morning.. so that does not help the old body. I have been meditating to relax just so I can use the bands for stretching. The pain on my knuckles is agony, but I know I need the workout..

I have been freezing fruits and veggies for winter.. I have made all the preserves I will make for the year,, now just wait for our blackberries and raspberries to ripen. they go until late fall. so we get a few here and there and make smoothies with them...

I still want to freeze some string beans...

    It has been shown that by denying a healthy individual sleep for 72 hr, y9u can cause fibro pain. Thus, IMHO, appropriate sleep (not sleeping pills), in which a person gets REM sleep on a regular basis, would aid in decreasing the pain. I have proven this with myself as I HAD suffered from fibro in the past. That is one of the reasons I got rid of the alarm clock. If I take care of getting to bed on time, I wake up naturally on time.
