Liz be careful I hope you feel better soon. Our weather has been crazy warm one day then freezing cold the next and then the rain. On top of everything else I have 2 ear infections and a sinus infection. Then McGee our cat brought home a strange cat. That cat is now sitting on our porch meowing and meow sounds pathetic like he might be sick.

Am going to survive my bit of clumsiness from the other night.

Cake, it's go to see you here. Have been wondering how you were. Sorry about the infections. Don't you love it when one of the rescues invites another to move into the house?!

Exclamation Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

Well, it's come down to this ... I've had to request a reasonable accommodation at work ... I'm in so much pain that I spend some of my lunch breaks in the bathroom having myself a good crying jag ... The upside is that my PCP & me are reasonably certain that we have figured out what is causing this aggravation to my condition (thus the spike in inflammation and pain) and are pretty sure that if I go back to my old route (that bus has a totally different operating system) it will help everything to settle back down a bit ... Of course, I won't ever be totally pain free but at least it will be more tolerable ... The way it is now, I'd literally rather be dead than to continue living in this kind of pain!

I am going to have to get a trap for McGee's friend at least it's not the skunk he's been trying to be friends with a skunk for a while. Right now he's sick he had a very bad reaction to new flea meds. I called the vet who had me call the manufacturer to report it and to see if what he was experiencing was a bad reaction and they said it's rare but yes it is. Our other cat sunny also got a dose and he throw up twice that's a common reaction but he throws up a lot.

My pulmonary doctor increase my pred I think any doctor who prescrips it should have fi take it first so they know how we feel

I read an article today that said fibro patients should get a pet scan and that a lot of people with fibro have brain inflammation which makes a lot of sense when you think of the brain fog but I thought it was really interesting because my SED rate is always really high and we can't seem to get it down. I never thought of the brain like that.

Anyway take care everyone

Sending gentle hugs and positive vibes from California to you

I got stung bu a wasp right next to my right eye Sunday. Little beast was apparently annoyed that I was cleaning up dead leaves in the yard.

I'm allergic to bee/wasp stings. I came straight in the house and put Benadryl cream on the sting, then an ice pack. That side of my face still swelled like crazy. I worked from home Monday. Figured I'd scare the kids if I went to work. Didn't think driving with one eye swollen shut was a good idea either.

Swelling is almost gone, but the whole mess triggered a fibro flare. I feel like poo.

Default Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

on sunday I ate some out of date chicken so ended up with a really bad stomach ache (and other side affects too) for days

well, I say days, I think it was about wednesday afternoon when I started feeling better

and of course I can't sleep, so recovery was extra slow, because I didn't have the rest

that aside, honestly no idea what i'm doing or where i'm going in life, complete standstill

Default Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

Hey all new to chime in here, Christina directed me, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia around 2011 I think. Currently trying lyrica but 14 or so days in and nothing. About to start a new job stocking at Wal-Mart. Physically intense but can't say no to income. Was a Cna for years before this. Excited for my new job but not the pain I'm about to be in. I already don't sleep for crap. Flexeril does little on good days. Once I get a paycheck I'm going to try some more potent CBD. Doctors and pharmaceutical have pretty much failed. Tired of life this way. Can't talk to anyone about it because they have no concept of pain. Not really. I mean I've broken things and given birth to a child and this is just ******** in comparison. It never stops. Other pain stops.. that's what people just don't get.. Ugh
