I try and not the pain levels anymore. I only do that if I need to do that for an MD, ND or any type of caregiver. Other than that, I feel it gives the "fibro" power. I try, and not always do well, but to not let it beat me.
Don't get me wrong. I could name them and they can varie from day to day.
Good day? Bad Day? Great day?

Someday.. this to shall pass!

emoticon Sarah! So sorry about sweet Lily. I am so glad God has answered your prayers in healing her. That is wonderful. What we do without our beloved fur-babies. Last Monday I had to take my Gabby Cat to the vet as she was acting strangely and wasn't eating. After doing blood work they discovered she had really low white blood cell count and that more than likely it is due to an infection. She has responded quite well to antibiotic but still has a lil ways to go. I am just glad she is starting to be more like herself.

Well I have been sick with a sinus infection for past 2 weeks and am on round 2 of antibiotics. I will see ENT tomorrow.

Fibro Pain: 6 which is coming down a bit thanks to meds.

Fatigue: 7

Mood: 5-6 Trying to stay positive, but sometimes it's hard. I am enjoying some relaxing music that I found on Youtube.

Blessings to all! Hope everyone feels better soon.

WOW Cynthia..so sorry that you broke your hand. I fell in the woods in December and thought I broke my wrist but it was just a bad sprain. I was all worried that I would need surgery on it but it healed...it just took about a month to feel better. I hate that you broke yours...I hope that it heals well and that there is not much pain.

Sunday:
pain 8

fatigue 6

mood 9 ( I am with son and granddaughter so that makes me happy)


I too am an introvert....I get exhausted from being around people....I love them but it wears me out...always has. The article said that many fibro patients are introverts...and also that loud noises and odors, etc bother us...we are easily over stimulated.
I have noticed my pain level shoots way up when I am around people...or if I have stress...or if there are loud noises.

I am still working on pacing. It is the hardest thing I have ever done.....making myself stop and relax in the middle of things when my instinct is to push myself through them. But I also have noticed if I just back off and rest a bit my pain level will usually come down or at least that helps my pain meds take effect which helps bring down my pain.

Meg glad that your pain level is down! Thank you for the Get well wishes.

Fibro: 3

Hand pain: 2 thanks to meds and ice

Fatigue: 4

Mood: 6 I feel hopeful and overall pretty happy, but I have noticed that the pain medicine for my hand has made my moods shift and my anxiety go up.

Blessing to all for a happy healthy weekend!

Pain - down to a 5! Yay! I am able to do more today.

Sarah, yes, I'm an introvert. It's always been hard for me to be around other people, even as a child. I love people, get togethers, parties, church, etc, but it wears me out.

Cynthia!!! oh no! I'm so sorry to hear you fell! I hope you're not in too much pain. Hang in there.

Hi Sarah! Hi Meg...don't think I have met u yet! A pleasure and Sarah is right in tell you to rest in between your obligations. I have had to learn that the hard way.

Well ladies did I ever do a number. Sunday I went to the Y to get in some water PT exercises in. While in the water I noticed my balance was a bit off. Well when I was getting dressed to go home I must've been in a hurry and forgotten to watch my balance, because I fell and ended up breaking a small bone in my right hand. So it's in a splint and I am in pain, but the pain has eased some thanks to pain meds. I saw the hand specialist and it looks like it will be @ least a month of recovery. (I know I am pushing it by being here on the computer...LOL)
I am blessed that women from my church are bringing me a meal every other evening.

Ok so for Thursday:

Fibro: 1

Hand Pain: 3-4

Fatigue: 5

Mood: 7....I am almost wondering if I am manic I feel so good. sigh..I sure hope not.

God bless each of you special ladies.

Meg-I just read a very interesting article on how being with people increase our pain levels. It really hit me to be true for me at least....being with people wears me out. I wonder if those for us with fibro are introverts. Interesting concept anyway.
Please be sure to rest in between your obligations and do your best to NOT stress out and relax....
I hope you have a great weekend and low/no pain with tons of energy!
I posted in chat about my upcoming trip:)

Pain - 8
We had company for dinner last night. I had kept the house up good enough all week and my son picked up the groceries I needed, all in hopes of me not over doing it. Well, I cooked spaghetti, it was great! We had a nice visit. But at dessert time, I was done. I was in so much pain! I did the dishes while hubby and guest were chatting and I went to bed as soon as company left. Today I'm crying and in so much pain.

I'm going to do my Bible study and hope & pray the pain goes down, not up. It seems I rest and try to take it easy so I can do something, like dinner w/ a friend, shop w/ my kids, grocery shop, church, etc... For instance, this weekend we have my son's bday party on Saturday, Sun is church and youth group (I'll have them do the clean up this time), and then I drive to Orlando (a 1.15 drive time) to take my daughter to an open call at the National American Miss contest. Monday I'll collapse! I'm relying on God to give me the strength.

So sorry you are dealing with such fatigue...I am too and there is nothing worse except maybe the high pain that goes with it. It seems almost impossible to make oneself move or function with fatigue like this. Plus like you I sleep long long hours at night.

Fibro Pain: 5 really need to be wit heating pad blanket

Headache pain: 4 it's easing up.

Fatigue: 9 I have felt so sluggish. Last night I slept 14 hours. Talk about crazy...I still feel tired and run down.

Mood: 5 Trying to make the most of today and have a positive attitude. I have a feeling that's going to be quite the challenge.

Blessings to all!
