Getting a Sleep Study with Fibromyalgia or CFS


Getting a Sleep Study with Fibromyalgia or CFS

I have had about 3 of these. Take something unrevealing to sleep in such as shorts and a t-shirt. In my case there wasn’t time to shower and you did not see a doctor after it. All places are different and the bathrooms were public, not private. I ended up leaving with that goop still in my hair. Even the one that I had a chance to shower it all didn’t come out. I had to go to work after one of them and I had yucky hair for the day. Maybe your lab will have weekend appointments, but wouldn’t count on it.

Opiates for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome What You Need to Know About Narcotics


Opiates for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

What You Need to Know About Narcotics

I take Percocets. I still suffer pain, but without it, things are much worse. I do my best to keep my doses on time. I keep a list with the times I should take them and when I actually do so no taking too early.

By Meera Lester – “365 Ways To Live The Law Of Attraction”


I have mentioned the Law of Attraction time and again. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. This  book has 365 ways (or days if you wish) of info. I will post some things if I think them relevant to positivity. Mainly that is what I am more interested in.

I understand the law of attraction. What you project out into the universe you draw to you. Think positive thoughts and you will attract positive people and things to you. Project the bad thoughts and that is what you will attract. As someone put it, whining about my pain and unhappiness will just draw more towards me.  I understand this, but it is very hard not to think negative thoughts when your life basically sucks and my pain is unbearable.

I have had many discussions with my dad about these subjects and a lot of other ones many of you may not believe in. And that’s ok, we are all different and have different beliefs.

Part of me wonders if I am being punished for something I did in a past life. Then again it could be this life. I have done some things that I knew were morally wrong and I feel wicked at times for having lived through some of the things I did in my life.

God has a plan for us and mine isn’t particularly pleasant this time around (if you believe in re-incarnation). And from what I have learned we will relive certain lives until we have learned the lessons God has set out for us. You will repeat a lesson until you learn it.

God bless us all!

Tons of clothes, helping others


I have an over-abundance of clothes taking up room and of a variety of sizes. Always kept them just in case I gained or lost weight and needed them. It has finally come to my attention that I have not touched those boxes in many, many years.

Talking to my therapist she suggested that I use the clothes donation to bless others. I have been feeling unhelpful with my blog. So she suggests that I donate all those clothes and feel better about myself by helping others.

I agreed with her and my dad that I need to get rid of these clothes as losing weight doesn’t seem to be happening. I have been at this weight and size for years. He said if I do miraculously lose weight slowly buy a few things to create a new fitting wardrobe, but to be honest I doubt I will lose weight. The insulin increases weight and my body structure is that of my mom’s. I am shaped how she used to be while alive and there is genetics to contend with.

Might as well clear up a lot of space by getting rid of all of those clothes.

What Is Fibro Fog and ME/CFS Brain Fog?


What Is Fibro Fog and ME/CFS Brain Fog?

The brain fog is one of the hardest things to deal with. I can’t have conversations without forgetting words and I am always forgetting where I am going and how to get there. Very embarrassing. I have printed before some of the crazy things the fibro fog has caused me to do. It does explain a lot though. I never could figure out how I could get lost driving to work every day for years, but this explains it.

Bipolar in the workplace…


If you had asked me years ago while I was working I would have told you I was a great employee and most of the time I was. I had great work ethics and was polite and respectful.

However my bipolar mood swings hid my true work habits and even when brought up I didn’t really believe what I was being told.

I couldn’t focus. I was constantly day-dreaming and every review notated this. I didn’t believe them.

I was extremely emotional. I cried at the drop of a hat or if you looked at me sideways. When my supervisor took me to the manager and said “you deal with her, I can’t take it anymore!” it started slowly sinking in. I started thinking about it and then I started to become more aware of my behavior and was shocked. This was normal behavior for someone with bipolar disorder, but I didn’t notice it.

It is possible to hold a job with bipolar disorder, but it certainly isn’t easy. There were lots of other incidents and I now am aware of them. I am on disability now and 61 years old so close to retirement age anyhow. I know longer have the thinking abilities anymore to hold a job anyhow.

New Year, New Problems


Bankruptcy is ongoing. All these holidays putting things off. I have given two banks the lawyers info.

My Amazon account was hijacked. Doesn’t look like anything was purchased. They got in and changed my email address and password. Their computer techs were able to lock my account and sent me to a page to  change it. Canceled any orders if there were any that weren’t processed. Recent viewings weren’t mine. Seems to be changed now and working under my email address.

I couldn’t have my last lumbar epidural so just was able to schedule one for 4 weeks, The pain is tremendous. Have no choice but to wait. Hopefully won’t have to cancel this one.
