Gentle emoticon Karen! Prayers that the underlying cause of your fatigue will be found and treatable. I remember struggling with fatigue many years back when my good friends traveled from Michigan to visit me. We had to adjust plans according to how I felt. I'm sorry that the fatigue is keeping you from the things you'd like to do..

I'm up and at em, but taking my time to get ready for the day. I'm lounging in my jammies drinking my cup of coffee. I need to go the bank and grocery store. It's a rainy day, so I'm not looking forward to going out.

I talked to my brother this morning. I really enjoyed our conversation. Michigan might get some snow showers. Yikes!

Hope y'all have a good day!.
Love and blessings!

I have had more tests to see if I have Adrenal Fatigue. I go see my doctor this next Thursday about that. The fatigue isn’t any better. I haven’t been sure that the B12 helps but my blood levels of it look good. It’s all so confusing to me. I’d really like to feel up to doing some fun things and not just able to get some of the necessities done.
Don’t get me wrong - it was fun and wonderful to see our daughter but I was unable to walk much or do much, but they all were so gracious about that

emoticon Hello dear sisters! emoticon

Trick or Treat!! emoticon emoticon Good golly tomorrow's Halloween already. Since I live in a high rise apartment building that's for elderly and disabled, I won't have any trick or Treaters. I have been good at not buying any bags of candy. I did buy a pumpkin Reeses cup single for a small treat.

Karen in Florida ~ How great that you had a nice visit with your daughter and sil. I'm glad that you could go see them. I have had B12 shots before. Hope yours will continue to help. Have you had any more tests ran? Prayers for you to feel much better soon.

Karen in Ohio, the concert that you went to sounds like a lot of fun! It's good that you got out and had an enjoyable evening. Bean soup and Cornbread sounds good...especially on this chilly set day here in SC. Your dessert sounds delicious too!

Kathy~ Thinking of you during the horrible fires and power outages in California. Praying that you are safe and doing well.

I am feeling quite a bit better depression wise. So Grateful for that. Fibro pain has been popping up more lately along with the fatigue, but I'm doing okay overall.

Sunday I went to NC for my sisters mom's birthday party. She turned 87 years old. She is such a lovely person. All of my sister's were there along with their husbands. My nephew was there with his girlfriend and also my nieces and their families came. We had a very nice meal and a yummy cake. It lasted the afternoon into early evening. it was so nice spending the day with my family. After the party, I went to my sister 's that I usually visit from time to time.I stayed until Tuesday early afternoon. I had a wonderful time. The weather was gorgeous so my sister and I spent a lot of the time sitting outside on her back deck.

Today I went out to late lunch with a friend and then to Starbucks. We had a great time. I'm quite tired tonight.

Hugs,blessings and love!

I stayed busy in kitchen yesterday. Sister Jill gave me some pears so I made a blueberry pear crisp using a recipe from HEALTHY EXCHANGE. It is suppose to freeze well. I also made some Bean Soup & cornbread. I need to go to grocery store but not my favorite job.

It is another beautiful fall day in Ohio. I need to walk around the house & put some things in garage or trash.

Karen...Hope you enjoyed your time with your daughter & the cooler temps. What are you taking for increased energy? I have started a good Vitamin B complex. It does seem to help.

Cynthia..Are you doing better? How nice for your aunt to remember you with a note & lunch money. I love Mexican food.

Jill & I went to a concert called ROOTS & BOOTS. It was three country singers who were popular in the 90's. Aaron Tippon, Sammy Kershaw & Collin Raye. We really enjoyed it.I have nothing on my calendar today. The sun is shining so I will try to get a walk in this afternoon. That should not be hard.

Have a good day.

Hi all.
I am out of town visiting with my daughter for a week. It’s nice to get out of Florida in the fall and see some pretty foliage and have cooler weather too.
I still have very low energy, wish it could be better. Trying some different herbal remedies for that
Hope you all are having a good week.

Karen~ I'm sorry that you have pain in your foot, but I am grateful that you found a wonderful podiatrist that listened and met your needs. I'm glad the massage with CBD cream helped. Oh so happy that you feel very hopeful! What a blessing and Praise!!

Well my anxiety has been way up. It's been hard. Today it's much lower, so for that I'm pleased and grateful.

Last night I finally did some laundry. I have to go to the laundromat for laundry, which makes it a hassle. I'm glad it's done and that I have clean clothes and jammies. Yay!!

Today I went out for lunch with my good friend. We went out for our usual Tex Mex fare. I had a delicious Taco salad with Steak. We had a nice time together. My aunt sent me a nice card along with a little money with a note saying treat myself to lunch. What a thoughtful gesture. So that's what I did today.

How are y'all doing?

I hope you have power Kathy! You've been in my thoughts.

Karen in Florida~ How are things with you?

Have a good day!
Much love!

I have been having a new to me pain in my right foot so decided it was time to see a specialist for some answers. I saw a podiatrist yesterday & really like her. She x-rayed my right foot & examined both feet. She then LISTENED as I explained my pain. She explained what is causing pain...Good & Bad. really bad bunion. No surgery since I have raynaulds. Other than bunions, my feet, ankles & lower legs are in good shape. I have arthritis but not much. The pain in my calf's is likely from lower back problems.

I now have something to put between my toes to help with bunions. She also thinks CBD cream applied to my back might help & possibly increase in medication for nerve damage. I am really glad to know what is going on & what might help.

I had a wonderful relaxation massage on Tuesday. She used CBD cream & it really helped. I am more hopeful than I have been for months.

Enough about me what is going on in your life?

Good morning friends!! emoticon

A warm welcome to our newest member Sheryl!! emoticon emoticon So nice to have you with us!

Karen ~ I'm glad you went out the other night to enjoy some music! It sounds like fun. Is the cupping helping? I don't know what that is exactly. I hope you get some much needed relief.

Kathy~ I hope you were able to make your trip to Lake Tahoe and that you're enjoying yourself. I've never been there, but have seen pictures. It's gorgeous!

Last night my friend and I went to eat at the restaurant we go to on Saturday nights to listen to music. Usually the band plays after hours just for fun and we don't eat. Last night they played a gig in the main area and had a wonderful Soul food buffet. It was delicious. The music was fantastic! We just had a great time.

I'm tired this morning. I got plenty of sleep, but I feel like I got next to nothing. Ah Fibro fun! emoticon

Karen in Florida ~ How are you doing? When do you leave for your daughter's? I hope you're feeling better. Let us know how your test results come back.

I am sorry ....somehow My paragraph about yesterday got ahead of my hello to Florida Karen. I'm too tired to fix it. Lol. Sigh I have no idea how it jumped.

Zzzzz! I would go back to bed, but I have my class at church this afternoon at 2.

Have a good day!

Kathy....I heard about those power outages. Sounds like a real challenge.

I finally got my laptop connected to wireless. It was easy so I wish I would have tried to do it before. I should be able to post more often now.

I ran some errands earlier. It is a beautiful day in Ohio. I bought a small package of ribs yesterday & boy does it smell good with sauerkraut cooking in my crock pot. I plan to watch some of my recordings of the VOICE competition tonight.

I had my 2nd cupping treatment yesterday. Its suppose to help with circulation. I get it with a massage.

Any fun lately? I surprised myself by driving to a nearby town to hear DINO on Sunday night. It was a bit of a challenge as my 7 pm meds tend to make me drowsy & the concert started at 6. I stayed til 8 & drove home taking my meds about 9. I am glad I went but it would have been nice to have someone with me. Sometimes I do not like being a Lone Ranger.

Hi all. Lots of wind in NorCal for the next few days. Our power company is cutting off power in several areas to protect against fires. We've had such tragic ones in the last few years. But what a hardship to those communities, no power at all for days. I'm praying to be spared, I admit. No air conditioning - still warm out here - no cooking, no traffic lights, no schools, medical services restricted, lost wages.... crazy. My friend who was in the bad car accident had to spend 21/2 days in the back hallway of the ER because there weren't any hospital beds. She was right by the door that staff use to come in and out of the hospital, and the next patient down the hall from her was a prison patient - shackled to his bed with two correctional officers on duty at all times. She couldn't even have power to her bed or a call button for the nurse, because there aren't enough outlets in the hallway. Just crazy. Praise is that she's gotten pretty good care in all of it and is recovering well. Hard pain journey for awhile, but all in all, we're just so grateful for her survival, care, and recovery.

But the fun news for me is that I'm still planning on going up to Lake Tahoe with friends who invited me to their timeshare. Just, we've had to cut back our plans first because of his health and today because of the wind. Maybe we'll be able to leave tomorrow. Lake Tahoe is a huge alpine lake and resort area, lots of skiing in the season, up in the Sierra Mountains. It's about 3 hour drive from here. There's already snow on the mountain tops so it should be especially scenic right now.

Pain is up today with the weather changes, but that will adjust too.

Good news about your meds, Cynthia! And welcome to our new sister!

gentle hugs, kathy

Kathy

Hi sisters! emoticon

Hope this finds you doing as well as you can be. Hopefully less pain.

I Saw my psych Dr today and that went quite well. My depression is lifting a bit each day, so we are both happy with meds. He thinks that giving last month's change one more month, I'll feel even better.

Today, I am meeting with my sponsor. I'm not sure where we are going. We haven't talked about it. I'm happy with just having coffee.

Enjoy your Tuesday! Check in as you are able!

Much love!

Karen~ How wonderful that you have such a helpful loving husband! He sounds like a true blessing indeed. Glad you were able to make some Fall decorations. very creative! That reminds me, I have some to put out. Your weekend sounds enjoyable; having family over. I'm glad you will be going to visit your daughter and son inlaw. I hope you have fun. Keep us posted on your test results. Continued prayers!

Hi Fibro Sisters. Hope your weekend has been enjoyable and revitalizing for you.
We had my husband’s sister and her husband and our son and fiancé here for lunch today. Was so nice to see all of them.
I made some new fall decorations this past week and have been enjoying them around the house.
I used to craft all the time years ago and have missed that. I still want to be able to feel up to quilting and sewing. I had put that on hold quite a while ago. 😐
My energy levels are still so low, but I can push through hours of it most days. Usually need a nap most every afternoon.
Doctor is still trying to find the reason for my exhaustion. More tests this week.
CPAP and Medical Marijuana therapies going well and soon we will travel out of town for 10 days to see our daughter and son in law. Might be an additional challenge using and cleaning my CPAP stuff away from home but I can’t wait to see them.
FL Karen
PS- I must mention that I have a wonderful husband who takes great care of me. He does most all the grocery shopping, much of the food prep and clean up and most of the driving (when we go out of town). I don’t know how I’d manage without him. John is a blessing

Good morning almost Afternoon! emoticon

How are you doing?

It's a gloomy day out. It reminds me of Winter. Fall weather has arrived temperature wise. One day we were 95 degrees and the next 71. Yesterday when I went out I could certainly tell the difference. I'm ready for cooler temps, but I need to hit the thrift stores so I can buy some warmer clothes that will fit me.

Yesterday my friend took me out to lunch. We went to our usual Tex Mex restaurant. Yummy food. I really enjoyed her company. It did me good to get out for a bit.

Today is my step study for Celebrate Recovery. It's later in the afternoon. I need to eat a bite, and shower in bit so I will be ready to go.

I'm not in that good of mood. Mostly because of anxiety over insurance issues. I need to trust God to work out the details.

Love you! Sunday Blessings!

I love our little family we have right here!! emoticon emoticon

Well dear ones, I woke up before the chickens! emoticon I woke up to use the bathroom and then couldn't fall asleep once I laid down again. My emoticon is sitting next to me while I type. She's my morning companion.

How have y'all been doing?

I've been feeling better, but I think it's because I've had things to do that I enjoy; which is spending some time with friends, balanced with quiet time and time to myself. I wish we could all get together and have tea! emoticon Maybe even do a devotion. Speaking of which, I have been wanting to do a devotion thread. Nothing long...just simple.

My brother will probably call me later this morning. I always enjoy our phone chats.

Hope you're doing ok and having lower pain days.

I look forward to when you check in!
Love you!! emoticon

Hi all. I share the experience of getting harder to make new friends as I get older, and harder with my disabilities. I also make my commitments conditional, but hard for people to understand. Or how much quiet time I need in my life. Easy to look up and find myself isolated. So I cheer on the family you have Karen, and Celebrate Recovery, Cynthia - and for all of us this connection! Thank God for skype, etc.

gentle hugs, Kathy

Kathy

I totally understand having to change plans daily. And yes most people don’t understand. I have just 3 friends who do understand that and don’t get mad if I cancel last minute.
Glad you enjoy Celebrate Recovery. We have one here but is at night and I rarely feel like socializing at night

Hello October! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm blessed to call each of you sisters my friend! I love you!! Making friends can be more difficult with chronic illness. I lost one friendship a few years back because, she thought I was rude for constantly canceling plans. The thing is is that I couldn't help it, I never knew one day to the next how I was going to feel. I know y'all can relate. I have made most of my friends from Celebrate Recovery. The ministry has helped me so much.

How are y'all doing?

I'm doing a little better. Last night I went to Celebrate Recovery and there was a wonderful testimony. I'm really glad I went. Today I am meeting with my sponsor. We are going to the park nearby downtown. It's really peaceful there. Beautiful waterfalls, flowers and benches , trails to walk.

God bless you!
