My Humble Thanks and Another Update

 I would like to thank all my dear sweet blogger girlfriends for their well wishes and ideas on how to beat this Fibromyalgia that I hope is not Lupus. David and I are going to look into trying a Sleep Number bed. And I have loads of questions for my Rheumatologist on Thursday. I didn't know so many of you have the same thing. I guess we all have something in common. A sisterhood if you know what I mean. I'm very glad and honored to be in such a sisterhood because I am in such great company. Ok what did I get on the Humble Meter this time?

It's a bit cold this morning and I have to tell y'all if it wasn't for the fact that I had to pee I would never get out of bed. I was so warm and comfy there all wrapped up in my blankets listening to the puppies snoring. They all snore like little babies with congestion. Make a load of noise I can tell you that much. I couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up. They did too and it was like watching clowns pouring out of a clown car at the circus.

I have the heater going and some water on for tea. The Cymbalta is taking charge. The only thing I hate about it right now is that it makes me feel wobbly in the knees. The pain is very minimal and that's what I need. I would like to be normal again but that's a possible no go.

A friend of mine said I should apply for Social Security but I told her no way. I'm still able to get around on my own. I don't need it. Besides I may be able to find a good combination with the drugs and be able to go back to work at the lab. But I may not be able to stand all day like I used to when working. Who knows.


  1. I started with a Fibro flare this morning..... you have my sympathies.

  2. Sus I'm so sorry. I heard flares can be bad.

  3. Leeanna I do hope they get your medication worked out so you can start feeling better soon!

  4. Leeanna, there are many of us that suffer with fibro. I do pretty good in the Summer, but the cold, wet weather messes with my arthritis and that messes with my fibro. You just have to take it one day at a time and get plenty of sleep.

  5. I'm so glad that you're still fighting to get yourself back to whatever your 'normal' is. ^-^ Whoohoo, go lady, go!

    However, if, and I do mean IF, worst comes to worst, don't be too proud to apply for SS. You paid a LOT into it over the years you've worked, so by all rights, some of it IS yours.

    That aside, I'm sending you good vibes & lots of hugs & healing thoughts. Let us know how things go with your appointments & possible new bed. The minions must be kept in the loop!!! =D


  6. Do you have dizziness as well as wobbly? If so, get checked for Meniere's disease (basically, you have to be put on Serc, and see if it works). It's one of the diseases that falls into the multitudes that people with Fibro and CDPD have.
