Fed up !!!

Mar 13, 2016 2:47 PM

So so fed up with this pain and feeling like I do. I have had the worst week in ages I have been so fed up to the point that I just don't know what to do anymore last night I had the worst pain ever in my finger that I really wanted to just chopp if right of. I have pain right now over my whole body and I feel so stiff. Anyone got any reccomendations apart from jumping of a high bridge ?

This sounds ridiculous, but you know how a little toddler has a "lovey"? Well, I got one of those really soft blankets for Christmas, and when the pain is just intolerable and all I can do is cry, I sit and stroke that blanket like it was a kitten or something. For whatever reason, I get through it, and have started sleeping with the blanket, even though summer is coming. Maybe I'll cut it up and make a kitty out of it so I don't look like an overgrown Linus character.

What has been your best bet in the past to get through the crucible of pain? I wish I could just lay on a cloud sometimes. I hope you find some way to relieve the worst edges soon! Would a cool soak help? Or a warm one? (Don't hit it with a hammer, I don't recommend inducing more pain to get over what is already the worst pain ever...)

((((((((((Hugs)))))))))))) (gentle and safe!)

Husbands, wives and our pets are the bestest! I hope , I really do hope you are feeling better today. I am sitting out side in a lawn chair, with a glass of ice tea, a big floppy hat on, enjoying the warmth of the sun on my skin..last night was a rather hard night for me as well...but we made it through the pain. Much love to you and yours, Terri

Aww thanks Terri ❤️ lucky you sitting In the sun I'm in Scotland it's still freezing rainy and very dull, counting down the days till the warmer weather X

Mar 13, 2016 5:24 PM

I love the fact that I have a friend in Scotland. Wow, what an amazing place!(despite the weather) so tell me what is something you can do right now to "love" yourself? Maybe some hot chocolate and a good book or movie, o a nice long hot bubble bath?

Ha ha right now all I want to do is sleep I gave up my bath a few years ago for a walk in shower but I really am thinking about replacing it X I'm off to bed soon so I'm off doing my favourite thing X thanks

Terri you are the best! We so often forget to "love" ourselves, especially when we feel like crap. Thanks for the reminder.

Mar 13, 2016 5:29 PM

Anytime, my Scottish friend! You can count on me to help. So report back after you take some time for you! Ooooo and I also got me a bag of chocolate kisses!!!! Love,Terri

Mar 13, 2016 5:31 PM

Mar 13, 2016 5:47 PM

Terri, you bring the SON out when there is no SUN. I can vision you sitting with your floppy hat on your head, in your lawn chair, with that bag of chocolate kisses large enough to share... Share....share!
Fibro, I know how you feel... Some days all I want to do is rock and cry! I have been sitting in front of a space heater. It just seems I can not get warm enough. I know I am... But it just feels good to my skin. GrandmaD I like that idea of a soft blanky. My doggie stays close too. And there is nothing like a piece of warm pie with a dab of ice cream! Fibro hope you are feeling relief. Hugs!

Well guys it's 12am here I had gone to bed slept for 20minutes wide awake now I just don't think sleep is gonna come tonight and if it does it will be on and off 😢😴

Are they melty? Are the chocolate kisses melty? I just love them like that.
I have read countless times that sugar and chocolate are not particularly the best substances for those with fibro. Well, guess what?
When I'm down... Really, really down... I will eat an entire box of milk chocolate covered cherries. AND. IT. HELPS. ME. GET. THROUGH.
Some may say I'm not the brightest crayon in the box -- but I say what ever (legal) coping mechanism you find that gets you through your flare-up or crisis is BRILLIANT.
So visit the Community here for understanding and cyber hugs that never aggravate tender points, snuggle your loveys, fur babies, and/or significant others, and eat chocolate, or kale, or fiery chicken wings to get through.
GrannyD will cheer you on all the way to a better day.
