Cell Phone Hell


My old phone is about to die completely. I ordered a new one online last Wednesday. Come to find out it is backordered and I get a new delivery date every day. Very annoying especially since calling is all my phone can  do now and the battery dies quickly.

This all started with 2 different techs at Apple. I have an iPhone. Verizon doesn’t work on them. Apple couldn’t help and the phone was quickly shutting down. I called Verizon since I needed a new phone. I had to pay off my old one which was around $100 and then set up my plan which is now unlimited across the board including the data. However, the rep didn’t know it was on back order although she should have been told when ordering it. She apologized, but it is already done and wait I must since I also ordered the supplies. By the time the money went back on my card it will most likely, hopefully, be here.

Still withdrawing from my psych drugs. Next week I go down to a very small dose. Wonder if it will be bad. So far I have been pretty well with this one.

I have been fantasizing about my ex-husband. Now that I have forgiven him (and I) for what happened 40 plus years ago I find myself drawn back to him. He doesn’t know how I feel. My children do and so does my therapist. Of course I also want to go back in time and start over. I know that isn’t possible. Neither of us are the same. I won’t take orders and he is now used to following “hers” and so things aren’t really ideal and he hasn’t made any indication that he wants to start over (yet), I have prayed to God to do what he thinks is best. Do I want him back or am I dreaming or am I just feeling alone. I am not interested in another man at this time for sure.

Oh well, life goes on.

4 Exercises Deemed OK for Fibromyalgia


I know what most if not all of you are thinking! Am I crazy? Exercise with Fibromyalgia???

Yes I agree wholeheartedly with you. Just moving or lying or even sitting with my Fibromyalgia is quite painful. I am going to list the 4 recommended exercises and who knows maybe one of them will help you if you have the urge to try it. I personally think a warm water swim wouldn’t be so bad, but I don’t have a pool that I can use.

  1. walking – I can only manage about 5 minutes before I need to stop or get some sort of support. I have used a cane, but not at the moment. I use the shopping carts if they have them or find a bench to sit on. I spend a lot of time sitting in the car while my son runs the errands.
  2. swimming – sounds nice if you have a pool. Make sure the water is warm though. Cold water is not a good idea.
  3. stretching – I have stretched occasionally with very light weights.
  4. yoga – goes with the stretching in most cases. I did yoga for about 2 weeks and did loosen up a bit. Then I stopped.
