Hi Mimi and fibrofamily, bright and sunny here in the UK today. Looks like Spring might have arrived except for the fact that a few counties had snowfall the day before yesterday. We sure are having some weird weather here.
I had my review at the hospital last week. Seemed to spend the entire time filling in forms and answering questionnaires. Apparently, I will be informed if I need additional medical support. I won't be holding my breath however.
One thing I did learn from my review is that I am a failure at pacing and that I set myself up for failure by having too high an expectation of myself:-( .Maybe one day I will learn.
Hope you all have a restful and hopefully pain free weekend. Hugs JillyxxView Thread
Hi Mimi and Fibrofamily, bright and sunny here in the UK..for a change Struggling emotionally with the fibro. Keep hoping that somehow I will wake up one morning and it will be gone. Hugs JillyxxView Thread
Morning Mimi and Fibrofamily, really cold here in the UK but sunny.
Not doing fantastically well here. Tried to up my exercise because I am missing physical activity so much but as usual, I overdid it and am paying the price. It always seems three steps forward and two back.
Having serious blood pressure problems despite doing everything right so don't understand why. Does fibre affect BP?
I have a new doctor whom I saw on wednesday. I asked if she believed Fibromyalgia exisited and her response was she believes people when they say they are in pain. Not sure what to make of that answer. Does she or doesn't she or is she just sitting on the fence.
Anyway enough of my moans. Gentle hugs to all who need one. JillyxxView Thread
Hello my fibrofamily, we have seen the storms on our news and I hope you all are safe. It looked terrible. I am late as usual, just not doing too great here. My mom died at the end of January and just a few days ago we lost an auntie. Been very stressed over one thing and another. OH had a cancer scare and we are waiting for a blood test to be repeated as the first threw up some abnormalities . Sorry that is all moan I had found a sites claiming to "cure" FMS but the main part of the cure seems to be sending them your money. Hugs Jilly in the UKView Thread
Hi, I am sorry you are not getting support where you really need it. My husband believes I have Fibro but he just doesn't understand or choose to understand the impact on me. If I say I am having a bad day and am in pain, then he is in more pain. One thing that did make an impact on him was getting him to read The Spoons theory. Hugs Jilly in the UKView Thread
Sorry you are suffering but you have landed in a great place for both support and information. Knowledge is definitely power. Hope you are able to get the help you need. Hugs Jilly in the UKView Thread
Hi Patty, Sometimes we need to remember to put ourselves first instead of last, It is great your son is helping and that your new move is adding to some sense of calm for you . Animals can often provide us with support because they are totally non judgemental.
Easy open things are good. I have had all my faucets adapted,use gagets to open jars, cans and bottles, etc. It's just medicine containers that get me . Not doing great here. Depression is worse, I lost my mom two months ago and think a flare is erupting. Still, it could be worse.View Thread
