It finally rained here in Kansas last night. It will warm up and be in the 80-s again today. There is a chance of storms later today.
Still not feeling well again today. I am in a irritable down mood. I can't seem to get it to go away for long. Wonder if the irritability is due to the depression. The pain and fatigue seem to be up and down lately. More up than down.
I have to go to the city today to pick up a birthday gift for my DD. She turns 11 on Sunday. We have birthday events scheduled for the weekend. She decided not to have a party this year but to have a friend over and get manicure/pedicure. It should be less work for me and hopefully they will have a good time.
MiMi - the stores are reminding me that Christmas will be here before long.
Lisa/grumpygoat- sorry to hear that you had to go to the ER. I hope you feel better soon.
It is a cloudy day here in Kansas. Chance of rain today and tomorrow. It is to be in the 80's again.
I am feeling blah again today. I am thinking of checking with the Dr. to get a medication for depression. I have in the past taken prozac for 10yrs. A few years ago I quit taking it and tried some other ones. I couldn't find anything that would work. I hate to think of taking something that will cause more problems. Going without is hard.
It will be another warm day in Kansas. High's in the 80's again. I can't believe it is almost October with the weather we have had it still feels like summer.
I am still feeling pain and fatigue more than usual. I am trying to figure out what is causing it. Can't put my finger on it. Will continue to deal with it the best I can.
MiMI- glad to hear that you had a good nights sleep.
Linda - I hope your eyes feel better with each day. I also hope that the dental work is not to hard on you. I have terrible teeth and gums. I had surgery on my gums at a young age. (skin from the roof of my mouth placed over the gums/teeth) I do think that the damage was in part due to medication.
Cory- sorry to hear you are dealing with family issues. I had to pretty much distance myself from my family due to the stress they brought to me. It is hard not to be there for them but I just couldn't do it anymore. Hope you figure out a way where you can still be there but not let it stress you out.
Welcome to the board. I hope you will find some help here and will feel better soon.
I suffer from pain and fatigue. I struggle with these issues daily. Some days are better than others. I have depression as well. I don't take many medications due to the side effects. I do take several vitamins/supplements.
Some other tools that help are diet, exercise, water, heating pad, massage, distractions.
I hope you will continue to post and seek out information that will help you deal with FM.
I am so glad to hear that you found what you needed in order to get back on track. I am so weary of taking any medication due to all of the side effects.
I am at the point where I am thinking of trying some meds again but am so scared of the side effects. I did start taking the muscle relaxer Flexril. I am not real sure if I will continue. The same is true with some supplements. A person really needs to know their body well in order to pick up on what is causing more pain or more fatigue. I am not that in tune to my body.
It does sound like you are so in tune with your body. Once again I am happy that you are doing better!
Thank you for the response. It was suggested that I might give it a try. I did read something regarding the liver. I also read not to take if you are taking Flexril. I started taking this muscle relaxer a few weeks ago. So I am not sure if I will try it or not. If I do I will quit the Flexril.
