Life Lemons

Ouch. A winter storm is rolling in. I don't need to hear the perky weatherman to get the details because my sinus migraine is as accurate as a barometer. In a fibro fog today. Haven't showered. Looking in the mirror is scary. Who is that weirdo looking back at me? Who snatched my body and replaced... Sign in to see full entry.

My Name is Fibromyalgia

*A friend forwarded this to me from her Facebook page. It is not gently written - rather emotionally charged. The emotions come from a legitimate place of worry, desperation and frustration. I need a hug (a gentle hug, of cour se.)* Hi. My Name is Fibromyalgia, and I’m an Invisible Chronic Illness.... Sign in to see full entry.

My New Doctor

About my new doctor: He listened. He didn't make me feel like I am crazy. He is doing blood tests to rule out any systemic problems. He prescribed some different meds. He is extremely smart. He dresses like Mr. Rogers. I like him. Now I wait. One day at a time. Sign in to see full entry.

In the Waiting Room

The rheumatologist's waiting room is brightly lit with fluorescent bulbs - the kind that buzz constantly to the point where I can't tell if it is really my ears ringing. I sit down in an overstuffed sofa in the corner and look around. The traditional style furniture contradicts the modern carpet... Sign in to see full entry.

Stinky Moccasins

Today I have the appointment with the doctor who specializes in fibromyalgia and chronic pain. It took almost two months to get in to see him. He comes highly recommended. I can't help but to have high hopes, some butterflies in my stomach, apprehension... Over the past ten months, doctor after... Sign in to see full entry.

Chicken and Rice with a Side of Gross

B has a work dinner this evening. I am peacefully content to sit down and enjoy a microwave meal - no cooking, no dishes. Classical music. A few candles, a glass of vino and indulging in some 'Me' time. 'Me' time interrupted: Cat puked on cue as I was taking my first saucy bite of Stouffer's chicken... Sign in to see full entry.

Unorganized Thoughts from Girl in Pajamas

Lost. Beneath my covers. Beneath the pillows. Not knowing where to start. Or even if I can. Foggy, hung over. One strong vodka martini on an empty stomach. Felt good at the time. Now - not so much. About four years ago I had a blog on here. I read it the other day and realized how different I am... Sign in to see full entry.

Novacaine, please.

Hello Fibro. Cruising through the day. The cold hurts my bones. Hurts to sit still and it hurts to keep moving. The pain is worse at night. Even my mouth hurts. The trigger points in my jaw drive me crazy. I literally coat my gums with Orajel. Slather it on like a greedy child frosting a cupcake... Sign in to see full entry.

Laugh at Your Problems - Everyone Else Does.

Irrigation pipe busted today which created a flow of water like the Niagara Falls in our front yard. My kindly neighbors stopped over to investigate what in the world was turning the sidewalk into a raging river. I scooted out from the crawl space on all fours, sans shower for a good 3 days, and...
