I'm still trying to recover from Thursday but so far today, it has been a light pain day. I also wanted to pop on here to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for the support and guidance so far this year. I have survived so far this year and will continue to do so. Oh and happy birthday to me! 35 years old and loving life!!!

Happy birthday! I hope you have a great, pain free day!

Okay,so now I'm really regretting it. Half tempted to call for an earlier appointment, but I do feel kind of like I need to just suck it up and keep pushing ahead with it.

Hang in there Amanda... If you feel like you need to call and make an earlier appointment then you go ahead and do just that. You know your body better than anyone else and if you can't wait. there is no shame in going in sooner than later. I'm sending you gentle {{{{{Hugs}}}} and praying that you have a peaceful night's rest and a better day tomorrow. Keep us posted.

Amanda, I agree with AlwayZ that you should call if you need to. There's no need to suffer so much longer if they can get you in earlier. Have you tried a hearing pad? Sometimes I would use a heating pad with a moisten towel, because moist heat worked better for me. I hope you can get some relief so you can rest. (((Hugs))) & prayers! 🙏🌼

Flappys, I have discussed it with my mom and she truly understands what I am dealing with. I told her that pain increases 10 fold at night and that I was having difficulty sleeping at this point. She said, "well change position". I told her that I have tried doing that repeatedly but it doesn't work and it leaves me feeling tired and groggy in the morning if I have not rested the night before. Will call next week. No reason to put it off just because I know what's coming if I do that. Oh well, what's another surgery this year already? It just amazes me that I am willingly subjecting myself to surgery at this point, but I want an answer and I want some relief at this point.

I agree!!! You deserve BOTH answers and relief. I wish that for everyone. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Oct 04, 2015 2:15 PM

Alwayz, never mind. Just sent in a request for a sooner appointment. I don't know which is worse, the pain or not sleeping. Trying to get in this week if possible. Running out of patience and I'm tired.

Lack of restful sleep is part of fibromyalgia symptoms... It sucks!

Oct 04, 2015 3:57 PM

Well I hope they get you in asap. You'll be in my prayers that once this is done you'll have years & years of relief, if not a lifetime. (((Hugs)))! 🙏🌼

Happy birthday

The lack of sleep sometimes bothers me more than the pain. I have gotten about an hour a night for the last few weeks. Sometimes 2 hours... Wow!!! Then, in the middle of that, I was awake almost 40 hours straight and no matter what I took (even my sleeping pills, Benedryl and muscle relaxants), I was still unable to sleep. When I finally got back to 2 hours a night, I fall into a deep sleep from exhaustion and then am awakened by pain and these horrible nightmares that have popped up and I can't figure out. Then, I have to get up, go downstairs to the bathroom, come back to bed and drift back off only to go back into the same nightmare!! I'm extremely frustrated and fatigued. I can only hope that I can get some sleep tonight. It's 11:30 and I am not starting to drift off yet. I guess it is good sometimes I don't work because I can sleep anytime (if only sleep would come). 💕🙏🏻🌻

Alwayz, I did end up sleeping for a good bit last night, went to bed at 7 I believe, but then got woken up at like 3:30 this morning and I'm still tired even after 8 hours. Grr!!!!!

Oct 05, 2015 10:51 AM

Amanda, I am sorry. I have been up all night having to get up every hour or less and going downstairs to pee. I'm exhausted and I'm also sick. I feel like crying.

Oct 05, 2015 4:15 PM

Alwayz, I feel so bad for you. Wish I could reach through my tablet and give you a gentle hug. Got in Wednesday morning. First appointment of the day. I'm ready to schedule surgery already. So tired and freaking grumpy!

Oct 05, 2015 4:44 PM

I'm glad you got your appointment. Hopefully, they will be able to give you a surgery date so there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} to give you some comfort and I'll keep you in my prayers. Thanks so much for the hugs.. They mean a lot. 🌻🙏🏻

Alwayz, is it okay to have that little white flag raised already cause mine sure enough is at this point.
