Thanks, @lizardlady!

That bright bubble that's falling near the beginning of the first video is a raindrop!

Haven't heard anything about work yet.

Phase 1 of reopening starts on 06/15, but that's for the movers and shakers.

We've been instructed to not come to campus until explicitly told to do so which could be another month or so off.

Maybe I'll be one of the last ones called or even be assigned to work from home a little longer.

I have consistently proven to be responsible with that!

As soon as I hear something I'll let y'all know ...

How have you been doing lately?

Sounds like your employer is being very sensible about taking care of y'all.

In terms of fibro I'm doing okay. In other areas I'm not doing so great. I don't like the way I've gotten to be - negative, judgemental, angry a lot of the time, depressed and cutting myself off from the world. I know it's all a reaction to what's going on in the world. My coping skills are overwhelmed. I know I need to change my thinking. I know the things I ought to be doing to feel better. I just don't have it in me to do those things.

Exclamation Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

I hear you @lizardlady ...

It is sometimes just too much!

Try to be extra patient, gentle & kind with yourself (even though that can be hard too)!

Thank you all for the responses. Ive been gone so long I cant remember how to work the features. Lol
Im still in Oklahoma right now. Yesterday was really stressful because I was sent messages about fires in Nashville. Im oldest son and I have other family in Nashville too. It took a while before I was able to reach some of them. All the situations that are unfolding further prevent me and my teenage daughter from being able to return to Nashville.

With the many autoimmune illnesses that I have it was actually recommended I no longer live in Oklahoma because of the environmental toxins. Also this state lacks a lot of resources and getting into see specialists take months.

I messaged one of my best friends that workers at Vanderbilt Medical Center. I was having an emotional moment. May 31st, 2012 was the last day I worked. I was just so flooded with memories and how my life has changed. Thinking about all the medical mismanagement, medical redlining and medical gaslighting.
Over the last two years I have had all my medical records and labs mailed from Nashville, Tennessee to Oklahoma.
I was seeking answers and I was not ready for the outcome. The healthcare field let me down and many others. My medical records and labs clearly had indicators of the multiple chronic illnesses that it took me years to get correctly diagnosed with. Which the lack of correct treatment exacerbated my symptoms.
It has been a wild roller coaster 🎢 many days filled with tears, frustration, depression and exhaustion.
Many, many hospital and urgent care trips.
I had to learn to seek my information to research from whoever had it regardless of the state or country they lived in.

Coco, I believe many here can relate to it taking years to get the correct diagnosis. I've probably had fibro and CFS most of my life, but was in mid40s when finally diagnosed.

Spent Sunday climbing up and down ladders finishing painting Mom's house. My left knee was kind of cranky yesterday. It is blown up like a balloon and hurts like hades today. Whine, whine, whine...
