Oooooohhhhhhh gosh.. over doing with laundry and the piano has COST me yday and today. I could succumb to tears and screaming, if it would help, but we know it wont. Can't straighten my back to sit or walk upright. God, how I miss my jacuzzi.😒

Latch, I do understand. Have been down almost all day with my back in the bed.

I'm so sorry! I sure hope you are so much better soon. To think, I must have once took mobility for granted. I sure miss it, with a very active family, two of which are a 12 yr old and a ten yr old; both boys😐

Oh my gosh, someone else tried to comment here and I think I may have accidentally erased your comment? I'm so sorry, if so. Please comment again. Crazy smart phones lack "smarts"πŸ˜•

I too miss my mobility. I watch our local parade today and watch !my highschool band in which I was a part of. And thought back on how I had no problem walking and playing my Instrument at the same time but now I can barely go grocery shopping or make a good meal for my family without being down the whole next day. O miss !y life

Amen to that, Newfibrogirl. It's no wonder that depression hovers so near and even jumps on us, when such a large change occurs in our abilities. I was so active.. I loved strength training, hiking, traveling, and sports, to name a few. Now, like you, I can't even make a round around the grocery store without panting with pain.

Latchtina..I've gotten to the point my family won't even go with me to a public place unless they know there is a eclectic wheelchair for me. Because I tend to pass out.. This time last year I was a pasrty chef at a upscale restaurant. Still trying to work and fainting or throwing up due to fatigue or extreme weakness.. And yes I ran from the idea of depression for so long but it finally caught up me. I still pray for the day when I can do at least half the stuff I could before.

I will pray with you for that very desire, Newfibrogirl. Such talent! I claim that for you. You just keep that chin up and be devoted to the right diet and light excercise, even from a chair or bed. God's got you!πŸ™

Thank you AMEN..I stand in agreement

It has been cold, windy and pouring down rain here for the past several days. I barely could move today! I sure sympathize with you all! Gentle hugs to everyone, and a good night's sleep!

Oh crankypants.. I have been so thankful for my pain meds and three comforter.. Lol.. Although St times my skin did not want the comforter touching but I worked through it.

Thanks, girl! I wish I could just stay in bed on days like this, but my daughter had to work and I'm in charge of my granddaughter when my daughter isn't home. Add to that a huge 7-month-old golden retriever and 3 cats, LOL! It's a wonder I'm still standing most days. ☺️
