Cynthia I am so happy when I see you post. My heart just smiles when I read the post on this team. I really feel like we are friends as well as fibro sisters.

Feeling a bit anxious as my oldest son Tom is dealing with some health issues. 2 weeks ago he woke up to a lump inside his mouth on his cheek. So far xray showed nothing. Ultra sound showed something solid. Next they will do cat scan & biopsy. He has had lots of tooth problems so I was hoping that was the problem. Prayers would be greatly appreciated as he waits for the test & results.

Thanks

Hello sweet sisters! emoticon emoticon

How are y'all doing? Hope your week is going well and that pain levels are down.

It's a dreary day, another good day to curl up and binge watch Netflix or just rest. Last night we had really bad thunderstorms. Scary lightening. I am sure there are nearby areas with damage, but I have not looked at the news yet. Bless the people in NC who have been plummeted with even more rain making the flooding worse.

I talked with my brother this morning. He is doing great! He saw his Cancer Dr. yesterday, and got a good report. He now has only two more treatments left. I feel blessed that he has returned to good health. PTL!!!

My Keurig started leaking from the bottom, so it's shot. Very disappointed, but I do have my trusty 4 cup maker in my closet that I can dig out.

Pain levels went way down so I am very pleased and grateful for that. I did get a call from the orthopedist office and.nd am scheduled to see him next Friday. Still icing the foot.

Yesterday a good friend of mine gave me her Starbucks freebie from Happy Hour . She brought by an iced latte and then did some cleaning for me. I very grateful for her help and friendship.

Happy Friday dear ones. Do any of you have plans for the weekend? Nothing planned here, just fly by the seat of my pants. emoticon

Check in as you are able. I look forward to hearing from you.
Much love!

Hi!! emoticon

Kathy~ How nice doing service at the retirement center. I bet it's a true blessing to them. Glad you enjoyed fun and fellowship with good friends afterwards.

Karen~ From what I have read, you've been very active getting out with family and enjoying yourself. how wonderful good.

I have been depressed again, going through a slight medication change in dosage. Am feeling better, but life keeps coming at me....as it does with everyone. I just received word two days ago that one of my friends has breast cancer. She is being referred to an oncologist ASAP. I feel sad and worried. She's already been through so much and now this. My heart breaks for her. Please keep her in your prayers.

Thank you for your prayers through hurricane Florence. We did not get hardly any rain at all here in upstate SC. We were extremely blessed as were my best friend and her family in Charleston. I cannot imagine what so many of the people who lost homes , family members , and the likes from the storm. So much devastation.

My Achilles tendonitis is back and now has the rest of my foot in pain. I am being referred to an orthopedist . I should hear from their office some time later this week. I have had to stay off my feet as much as possible. I admit I am getting rather bored. I did do a little bit of coloring the other night. Very relaxing.

How are you doing? I hope you are having a good week thus far. I'm doing my best to keep in good spirits. I have talked to my brother a couple of times in the past few days and it's been so enjoyable.

On a good note, on the last day of Summer, I went to the lake with my friend and we went swimming and enjoyed the warm water and nice sunny day.

Hugs and love to each of you!

Sweet picture! You're having a lot of family fun these days - so glad for you.

Miss the other sisters too. Hope they can post soon.

Did the service at the retirement center again yesterday, and then went on to have dinner with a few of the women. They have a beautiful dining room there and really good food too. I was impressed! Mostly I admired the women I was with greatly - such sweet spirits, and interesting stories, and engagement with life. We talked about maybe getting a bible study going, so I'll just see what God has regards to that.. All in all, it was a blessed time.

Rest day today, with some more puttering away on the reorganizing tasks I have. Little bit at a time, will be so glad when I'm done moving boxes!

gentle hugs,
Kathy

We celebrated my youngest grandson birthday today. It was a surprise number 16. He hopes to get his drivers licence this week. That is a scary idea.

A beautiful day with temps in the 60's in Ohio. For some reason, I feel like I need a nap!

Jill & I went to a free outdoor concert last night. It was 60-70's music. Nice to get out!

I was glad to see Cynthia post again. I miss many others.


I love pictures of country churches.

Hi all - good to see a post from Cynthia. Over the cold, just regular fibro stuff now. Thanks for praying, Karen. Making some progress in getting my house better organized and clearing out my closet for the coming remodelling project. Mostly, I have boxes all over the place! But I can see that it's progress.

Hope everyone is ok.

gentle hugs, Kathy

I would not mind staying here for a few days. Rolland & I use to get cabins & loved it. I am staying in today & in my night clothes. For some reason, I really needed a long sleep last night.

Kathy... Are you feeling better? I am wondering if Cynthia has loss electricity. Not sure how hot it is in the flooded area but it would be hard for me to not have fans or AC.

The nursing home has lots of new residents in the memory care unit. I took a puzzle in for Panthea & she seemed to enjoy it but not as much as the chocolate I gave her. I hope I never get dementia but it is nice to know that some facilities have good caregivers.

Hi all - prayers for those enduring the storm and the flooding ahead. Glad you are safe, Cynthia.

Cold is working its way through my system - I've much to do and have to out and about again today. All I want to do is just rest here at home. But good to have things to do. Karen, happy birthday - i'm so glad you got all that wonderful love and attention and fun. Well deserved!

Hang in everyone- if all else fails, we can always wiggle our toes and go with dancing feet!

gentle hugs, Kathy

It is a lazy day for me as I celebrate the gift of another year. Earlier in the week, my daughter took me to an American Idol tour. My sister hired a guy to help with my outside work. Last night my son took me out for dinner & sent me home with leftovers for today. My daughter joined us & brought me some candles, chocolate & a gift card. I am truly blessed.

I continue trying to downsize from my house to an apartment. I am sure the right place will open up for me in the spring.I look forward to less to care for.

There are so many people & situations to pray for. Top of the list is the safety of those in path of the storm. I wonder if any on the cruises are having a rough ride?. I know we did a few years ago.

Prayers for all of this team. Fibro will not win in this battle. We are still fighting it

Kathy... hope you are feeling better, soon. How neat that you can get things delivered to your door. In my area, you can drive to Krogers & they will have your order ready & brought to the car. We are too small for home delivery I guess.

I will be taking my great grandson to his soccer game tonight. Mom has to work as it is a big day for the restaurant. They are donating a percentage to fire fighters.

The American Idol concert was really nice. It was interesting to see which of the contestants had the best stage presence. We had a nice supper before the concert. My daughter in law met us at the restaurant. Son, Troy had to work.

Congratulations great grandma! Wonderful news.

I have the nasty cold that's going around out here - I keep thinking I'll feel better as I'm in a rest day but remember, oh ya, this isn't fibro flu. It's a regular cold! One of those grumpy ones when you feel utterly out of sorts and too sick to do anything but not sick enough to just go to bed and sleep.

I did try the shopping assistance service that's new to serving my area - you can order from any of several different stores and they go and pick up the items for you within a couple of hours. Offer is free right now of course so I gave it a try. Sweet. My shopper called me when an item on my list wasn't available and I could tell him right then what to do instead. Pretty soon I won't have to leave my house for anything!

gentle hugs, Kathy

I am not on that team. The only challenge I am in is to eat 5 fruits or veggies every day.

My daughter has joined weight watchers & is having success with their plan. All fruits & veggies are free, except potatoes. Chicken, turkey, fish & eggs are also free. the way we prep our food is a big thing.

I am having more pain, too. I had eliminated one of my pain pills but had to go back on it. Do rubs help your pain, Kelly? I have some CBD rub that I use on my legs. It does seem to help.

We are now having temps in the 60's & lots of rain in Ohio.

Good morning Fibro Sisters. How are all of you?
Welcome KELLIFROMKANSAS. I am Kelly from Arkansas. Lol!

So when I posted a week ago my son was sick, he finally felt better and returned to school on Tuesday. Hopefully he can go the rest of this semester without getting sick again. I hear that strep throat is going around, sure don't want to deal with that.

My fibro has been flaring this week, mostly feeling it in my shoulders and upper arms. Oh my gosh, it really hurts. But we have had rain off and on and supposed to rain this afternoon so I suppose that is what is causing this flare.

Are any of you on the Biggest Loser teams? The fall challenge began yesterday, I am really hoping to buckle down and get some weight loss going again. I struggle so hard with exercise though so it is so difficult to lose weight with just diet alone. But I am going to give it another try.

Hope you all have a good, pain free weekend.

''I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream'' .... Tom Petty

Thursday - rest day. Except that I got out to get my hair cut, drop something by the church, and get gas. That last I hadnt planned on doing today - but oops, the low fuel light began flashing. Just totally forgot to check my gas. I drive so little now, I'm out of a regular habit. What a luxury that is! So oooshh, 50 plus dollars later, I'm good to go again. I really need to discipline rest now - I can feel the weakness/pain in my body that's fibro cycle rising up more and more as the afternoon goes now. Third day after exertion... I moved really heavy (for me) stuff first part of the week, so rest now. If I stick to the Monday/Thursday rest days schedule, I manage so much better. But I have to really rest.

Got a long list of next steps/decisions from the my contractor before he starts the actually work so he can just roll through it all. It's going so slow, but it really will happen. It really will. Really! LOL I'll look at the list tomorrow.

gentle hugs, k

Unfortunately I have more issues than just depression and whenever I mention one it scares them away. I see a great psychiatrist that monitors all my medications. Unfortunately supplements are not strong enough. Whenever I get put on a new med I do my check on webmd before I even take it. It always mirrors what my doctor told me.

I hope things go better in the senior apartment search. I would not like to wait until I needed a place to stay. I like to do my research. Iím sure the Lord guide you. Thanks for responding.

Kansas Kelli.. I consider posting to fibro sisters like doing an open journal. It really does help to get your feelings & frustrations out. Have you considered supplements for depression?. I am thinking Sam-E is a good one. You do have to be careful if you take prescription drugs, too. Some are not to be taken together. I have found the web site. WEBMD to be a good resource for drugs & supplements.

I had an appointment yesterday to see an apartment for seniors. I spoke by phone to the manager & explained that I was not get ready to move. I said I was interested in her retirement apartments & would like to see the one apartment that was available. When I got there she said it had been rented & said to let her know when I am ready to rent & she will show what is available to me at that time. I thought she might at least give me a tour of the facility but she said that would only happen when I was ready to rent & pay the application fee. I guess she does not keep a wait list of applicants like the other senior complexes. Their managers were a lot more friendly. So we started with 3 local housing options & now we have 2.

It will be interesting to see where the Lord leads me. I am sure He has a plan.

Hello Kathy and all my Fibro Sisters,

I meet with my psychiatrist today for the routine check up. I asked her about my depression and that I don't think adding pills will help and that I need to be strong and make it to my November Specialist appointment.

She agreed with me and we talked about things that frustrated me. I told her everyone around me is negative about my fibro which makes me depressed. I also get depressed not being able to do the things I once could do.

I got a great doctor. I am so blessed to find this site. Thanks for letting me join!

Good morning! Kelli from Kansas - I'm Kathy used to be from Kansas. Welcome! This is a great group - it makes such a difference to me to connect with others who just understand. Back in the day, I might have tried to understand, I might have even thought I did. But until you're actually dealing with this kind of pain and fatigue, you just can't understand that even putting away one more spoon can be a bridge too far. Can be tough to ride the depression loop that comes with that.

Karen, hope you find some appealing next home options. Keep us posted. My sister is in the process of getting her house ready for sale and looking for her next nest too. She's ready to be done with the chores of keeping up her home.

I got started on the reorganizing project I'm facing! Yea!!! One step at a time, even one box. I just keep reminding myself of that - the days when I could just dig in and get it done are long gone. Even one little bit, just keep it moving forward. Cynthia, you're such an encourager!

Sounds like fun times with family and friends going on. IKelli, hope your son is feeling better. I'm off to a busy day over at the church and errands... and moving one more box LOL. And I LIKE shark! So California.

gentle hugs, Kathy

Boy are you right! My pain is high today so I planned on taking it easy. We have dirty dishes pilled up and I thought my husband was going to do them last night but all he did was add to them so they are soaking and I will get them done.

The one thing that made my day bright was dropping my 5 year old son off for school. I tell him I love him and to stay out of trouble and he told me while he was outside he loved me and blew a kiss. He is a real sweetie.

I am a big animal lover and I have 3 rescue dogs and 3 rescue cats. One dog and one cat came from abusive homes. The dog, that I have had for over 10 years, comes out about once a week and lets me pet her for like a minute and goes back and hides.

The cat has come very far since I got her 6 years ago. All she did is hide and now she greets all our guests and is my cat. She is usually on my lap while I sit at the love seat.

Thanks for listening to me. Typing out thing has reduced my stress and depression. If I type too much just let me know!

Over did things yesterday cleaning house plus taking care of my son. I woke up my husband at 7 pm and told him I needed to go to bed. He then tells me I need to help him with his computer 2 hours later I told my husband to make our sons bed before he go to bed. He wonít if I donít say anything.

Very upset with my husband. I worked cleaning the house doing laundry etc. He wakes up and points out I left out a spoon.

Hope you are all getting a good start to this new month. I am looking at a senior apartment this afternoon. Hoping to have my house ready to sell in the spring. I am wanting to see what my housing options will be.

I sure do like the thought of low to no pain. Sometimes when I am in pain, I want to just give up. I question God as to why I am still here. I usually do get pain relief when I take medication but I just hate to take it. I have taken so much for granted in my younger years. One thing was a body without pain!

It is nice to see you post again Kelly.

Hi ladies. Happy September! Hope you all had a good holiday weekend. My son has been sick with sinus and ear infection so we were confined to home, perfectly fine with me, so our long weekend was relaxing.

Hope the week ahead is low to no pain for all of us.

Happy Labor Day.. I know those that are still working are really glad for this day.

I thought the family reunion went really well. It was amazing how the food worked out as my daughter had just asked everyone to bring a side dish & the only doubles was of cupcakes. I know my kids were disappointed that their Uncle Pat did not make it. He is the only living brother of their father. Several cousins came & they enjoyed being together. It was a hot day so I mostly stayed inside but still got to visit.

I am looking forward to some cooler weather but will have to wait several more days. My fridge is full of reunion left overs so I will not be cooking today.

Good morning friends! emoticon

Great goals!! emoticon

Kathy~ I completely agree on how much easier it is to binge watch TV! I know you'll do great in getting back into exercise just one baby step at a time.

Karen~ How fun..A family reunion! It's been hot here too. I am so glad you have appointments tomorrow for apartment applications. Keep up the good work on your downsizing efforts!

Yesterday a couple friends and I did laundry together at the laundromat. It felt good to get mine done...I had gotten waaay behind. Afterwards we went downtown to Starbucks and sat in the shade. Later in the evening I went to a BBQ that an old friend of mine was hosting. It was a really nice time. Yummy food. I tried something new. There was some seafood for those who don't eat red meat. So even though I had a wonderful juicy burger on my plate , I was curious so I tried shark! Yes, you read that right. Lol it was delicious!! It was great spending time with friends I hadn't seen in a long time.

My best friend is in town so we are meeting early this afternoon. I am excited to see her. It's been a while. Tonight my church is showing the movie I can only Imagine. If I have the energy I plan on going.

Thinking of you! Hope you have a Happy Labor day!

It has been a busy day with a family reunion. It was pretty hot so I mostly stayed inside.

My goal is to continue with my downsizing efforts. I have appointments on Tuesday to complete apartment applications & hopefully I will get to tour one of the open apartments. My goal is to put house up for sale in the spring. I am ready for this next big step but there are lots of things that will have to go before I do move.

So glad you're beginning to feel better again, Cynthia! I think August was a tough month for a lot of people. Thank you for getting us started with a September chat.

September goals? Several! Like, I have to get my 2017 tax info to the woman who does my taxes... I keep starting the 30 day challenge for people with mobility challenges and haven't got past day 5 I think, but I'll just start again. However many times. One of these months I'll get through it. And back to the gym is on the list. And finally getting stuff organized in two closets and parts of the garage. I wish I could make it fun and not chores. In other words, lots of things I need to get done that I just let drift away. I know the key is to just start. Move even one thing. Just every day, do one bit of it. But I have a jigsaw puzzle to put together, and I let myself be daunted every time I approach it. Much easier to sit and bing watch something on tv! Exercise remains my big mountain range to climb. And I need to have some truly fun goals too, huh?

gentle hugs, Kathy

Kathy

New Month! Wee!

I am behind on reading posts. I have been fighting through a month long flare, which seems to be coming to an end! PTL!!

Do any of you have goals set for September yet?

I am just trying to cut down on sweets and mindless snacking.

Hope you have a good Labor day weekend!
