Just another day.....

I had a hard time getting to sleep last night. I was having alot of pain as well. Not surprised at that. :o( A letter really upset me to no end last night. I did get 2 hours of sleep last night/this morning. I got to bed at 3:00, and I took a pain pill to help. My massage therapist came this morning. And I thought the last time she came hurt like hell! Not even close to todays! I now have 3 lumps on my upper stomach area, that have gotten larger, and 2 more on my right side in the rib area! Plus, a new one has started on my left rib area! Thankfully it's not as big. But it hurts. I can tell you this much, the areas that these are in; I couldn't wear a bra or a seat belt if I had to. :o( That whole area is swollen. I was going to try and get a picture of it, but I can't get a good enough one that shows up. I'm going to keep trying. I still have those other lumps on the right side of my face. She can't do anything for them. So, my face twitches in muscle spasms. Feels pretty weird. And of course, all of the usual places that have always been a pain, my upper shoulders and chest and back and down to my hips and legs. And my upper arms. I have a large lump on my right upper arm right now that is killing me. Oh well. I really think that tumor on my back has gotten larger. I could feel it this morning when she was massaging my back. :o( Again, if anyone else that has these problems or any other that I have mentioned, like the "fibro fog," Please leave a comment. It lets others know that they are not alone, and the people that doesn't go through this, to know that this is a real thing that we do go through, and it's not for self pity from anyone at all. Thank you for your comments, they encourage me to keep writing no matter what. :o) God bless you all. :o)

Hi, Like i wrote to you in the email, i sure do have the Fibro Fog and since I have FIbro more than 15 years the older i get the more the : Fibro Fog'' I have. I will start to say something and then have to stop and think of the rest,and i also have a harder time of talking. Words just dont seem to come out as easy like they should. I dont know if some of it is because I have been on strong meds for so long for the pain, or have had fibro for so long. You are definately not alone in this battle and does your neighbor have Fibro at all? If not, I bet she has no clue how us people feel day after day knowing there is no cure and all it does is get worse. My legs are to the point they are real numb from the tops of my legs to my toes ,both of them,very heavy feeling  and I wonder how soon i will be in a wheel chair as i know i cant go on this way. Hope this helps you out,Your Friend Shirley

Wow Shirley. I didn't know that your legs were that bad. :o( And yes it does help me out, by knowing that more people with fibro do have the fibro fog like I do. No, she doesn't have fibro, thats why she doesn't understand. But she's suppose to be a CNA. So you'd think she' at least know something about it. My opinion. Thanks Shirley, and you try to get better, ok. :O)
