Up late and need to talk

I'm up and can't get to sleep. gggrrrr! I'm not going to get any better if I can't get the rest I need to help my immune system. But...thats fibromyalgia for ya'. :o)
I have been having a lot of problems with my health lately and it has been weighing on my mind. Everything that I have is genetic. It skiped a generation and hit me and my sister! My younger sister has fibromyalgia as well, but not as bad. Thankfully the doctor found it in time so she isn't in a lot of pain. :o) Whew! :o) I don't wish this pain on anyone! Not even any enimies! Today, the bottoms of my feet have been numb and painful to walk. I get a sharp "shocking" feeling in my back/spine. Which is telling me that my spine is getting worse. The tumors and spurs are touching my nerves on my spine. Ouchie! :o) My hands aren't doing so well. I can barely write anymore. lol...I'm sure the people that I sent post cards to could tell that! :o) They have been cramping up and wanting to go into a fist...if that makes sense?! I've been doing hand and finger exercises to try to keep my hands from going into a fist. lol....it's funny to see me do that one! :o) I've been very clumsy lately as well. Which worries me because I fall a lot, and I can't have that happen. Usually when I fall, I break something.....like my feet and ankles! lol...I've been on crutches and had so many casts on! lol My right ankle...the last time I broke it, the doctor didn't set the bones properly and I know have a piece of bone just "floating" around....you can feel it! Yuck! It's pretty gross! My knee caps go out of place all the time and I have to put them back on my own! Now that turns my stomach every time I have to do that! Yuck! ;o) My massage therapist has to put them back when she gives me the deep tissue massages. lol...I think it kind of grosses her out too! :o) I'm used to that pain. Well....I'm used to a lot of my pains....I don't know if thats good or bad! :o) Because half the time I don't know whats what! :o) Could it be the fibro...or the ms...or the arthritis...or what ever else I have! :o) It's just a guessing game at times.
Right now...I'm not able to sleep because I haven't gotten tired yet! Thats part of my sleep disorders! lol...and I have 3 of those! So...who knows which sleep disorder is causing it! lol :o) Again...I'm guessing! :o) Like with this cold/flu thingy...I thought I was better, but today I was back to the way I was feeling a few days ago! Good Grief! :o) Fibromyalgia has your immune system down anyway, then the lack of sleep added to that makes a mixture of how I'm feeling and the pains I'm going through still! :o) Gosh...it really gets confusing! lol :o) But...I know....this too shall pass! :o) Just waiting and riding the wave that has been thrown at me! :o)
Well....I think I'm going to try again to get some sleep. Thank you so much for all of your comments! :o) They get me through my days! :o) God bless all of you....He has me! :o)

Lisa, I wish there were something, Anything that I could do to ease your pain. One of the most important people in my life also suffers from  fibromyalgia. It  is such a debilitating disease. She is a mere shell of what she was even a year ago. I was totally unaware of this disease until my Sis came down with it about 3 yrs ago. It is so misunderstood, as I am sure you are more then aware of. I will keep you in my prayers. You keep on doing what you are doing.

God less,

This reminded me of when my daughter was a baby and she was sick for about 3 months with a cold/flu like symptoms.  Nothing would clear it up, antiobiotics, OTC meds, nothing.  We finally took her to an allergist and found out she was allergic to Oatmeal.  She had been eating oatmeal at my moms for breakfast every day.  Soon as she stopped eating it...she got better.  

But the moral of this is....she was sick for so long that she just got used to it and acted as if a runny nose and coughing constantly was part of her little life. I hope they find a cure for fibromyalgia.  What suffering you have to endure.  You will be in my prayers.  

Sorry this comment turned into an entry. lol   Putting you on alerts! : )  Hugs and GBU, Shelly
