So today ..well actually the last few days have been the prime example of fibromayalgia running your life. I've been planning to go to the store for groceries and other small items for the house . I've planned to do this since Saturday. And every morning I get up with some problems or a other. The last two days it been what I quess is a blood sugar issue. I'm not sleeping ..bit thsts normal bit when. I get up at 2 am by 5 I'm starving and I do t want to wake anyone e so I staying my room til mom gets up. By then I'm a wobbly shakey mess.
This morning I really want to get out even this its low 30's today. But I've not left the neighborhood since new years. But I feel so dizzy weak and foggy so I don't want to driveike this.

Hey Newfibrogirl, just an idea... Keep some handy poptarts or breakfast stuff in your room, maybe get a little refrigerator to keep snack in..so you don't crash while trying to be respectful of your parents.. Just an idea love ya,Terri

That's actually a good idea Terri. I had been keeping a zip bsg of grahm crackers on my desk. But the last few days I've been eating them before the morning. I've been feeling so odd lately and I've been super hungry. I know I've been trying to eat extra healthy but ive learn one major thing last year listen to my body. I may not know what the heck is happening but it knows what it needs.. I'm actually physcing myself bup now to go out to the store before I go pick up lunch. Because mom wants Chinese today and I'm sooooo not going to cook al that.. Lol..it's mynday off from the stove. Lol

Terri..I'm actually out right now so I g a little shopping and picking up the lunch.. The LORD let the sun come out so I was able to move better. My shoulder still wanted to act like its not attached to my body and my legs wanted to join in. So I had to use the electronic cart but its all good. It actually feel nice being out alone.. Although I had to leave my dad home alone but I made him promise to be good and try to move anywhere. But u know how a a promise from an 80 yr old veteran goes.lol..he probably butt naked and skuffing around the house by now.lol..sorry if its tmi...

I feel ya about pain controlling your life. I need to go to work today but my back has started hurting. If it's not that than my legs hurt from my butt to my feet. I had 2 fusion surgeries this summer & I am still waiting for things to get better. Anyway, I get it & sometimes you just have to rest. Things will get done when they get done. That's what delivery is for!

Newfibrogirl, I'm glad you were finally able to get out a little. I totally understand, having this head & chest cold since Christmas. I had my granddaughter overnight and today I kept having to take breaks. She asked why, so I read her three "spoon theory" and then told her I was saving as many spoons to do things with her. She smiled and hugged me. Made my day!! 😷🙏🌼
