Exclamation Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

The extra excuciating pain (that shall be referred to as "THAT" Pain from here on out) I was in finally let up around the 18th of March.

After suffering with it for two months (it came on in mid January), I couldn't trust it was really gone.

However, I think it's safe to say it's actually really gone now, and I hope The SOB (whatever it was) never comes back!

Default Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

today in the UK it's mothers day.

I don't have a mother, (or a mother that wants anything to do with me), so today's hard

made slightly easier though by the fact that comercials for it arn't everywhere like most years. just sucks that in sted of going out with my mother like most individuals, I'm staying in doing **** all.

yesterday I had a panic attack because I only had 5 peaces of chicken for dinner (all that was in the house), and I can't cope with odd numbers

I also really dislike my new body spray, the smell of it does not apeal (does not smell that womanlike)

I'm still feeling the same way I was yesterday, achy all over and foggy minded. The bad weather doesn't let up

I have a question:
apart from using a grabber to pick things up from the floor, does anyone else do anything else or use anything else to pick things up?

don't get me wrong, the grabber's great (I love how it makes my life easier), but lately it's done so little for the pain

I need something more sturdy I think

Red face Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

@raging vortex

I try to avoid lifting, pushing and/or pulling anything over 10-15 lbs ... But on those rare instances when I do have to pick something up (especially if it's on the floor), I go slow and steady (especially when coming back up) ... I listen to my body and if it begins protesting too much, I stop and assess before trying again ... Sometimes I use my cane and/or my little lightweight folding chair as a prop or brace to help me with leverage ...

The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

Sometimes I ask for assistance (if it's available) ... Sometimes I just leave whatever it is laying there until I feel I'm up to the challenge ... I know that probably wasn't too much help, I guess, but I want you to know you are heard, understood and supported ... It's sad and frustrating when I feel I'm not being listened to or understood.

Raging Vortex, if what you want to pick up is in the middle of the room could you use your foot to push is closer to something you can use to help get back up?

Pfrog, I'm with you. There are times I just say eff it and leave whatever on the floor.

Fibro fog has taken over my life this week. I walked by something I was looking for SIX times yesterday before I saw it.
