Online Dating With Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Online Dating With Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I am not interested in dating much. The reasons are far and wide.

1.my disorders are many and depending on the activity are beyond my pain and fatigue.

2. I am shy and new people and places scare me.

3. I have been hurt too many times.

I am not looking, but but not giving up completely. I do miss the companionship and support. I am not interested much in sex so that can kill a relationship, but there are others out there looking for companionship only. If it is meant to be, it will be.

What is Its Role?

Still struggling with Chromebook


My typing is getting worse. It was bad enough,but now I have to get used to a new keyboard.

Tomorrow I have my appointment with the lawyer. Anxiety growing.

Pain is increasing and my next epidural steroid shot is the 12th, One week from today. At least it isn’t as bad as the first time. This pain is less.

My next project is to learn how to print from here and redo the documents I need. I can’t just copy them over as far as I know, I don’t believe Google or Office are compatible. I have a dummies book and you.tube to help me.

Problems Showering with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Adrienne Dellwo


Problems Showering with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I struggle with showering and getting out of the shower. My shower is a converted bathtub. The middle was cut out for the opening, but it is wide and not low enough for someone with Fibromyalgia. Although it couldn’t be lower or water would run out. Luckily there are handles attached in several places so I have something to grab on to as I enter and leave the shower.

Even if it were still a bathtub I wouldn’t be able to take a bath as I can’t sit down in the tub or get up out of it.

I over did it, back is aching right now.


I have to relax now. I did too much today. It isn’t serious pain, but it is sore.

I am also starting back at the basics with my diabetes. I have let it get out of control.

I was warned…


I was warned that day 2 and 3 after the epidural injection could and most likely would cause more pain before leaving.  There is a chance it may not leave, but we are not entertaining that idea.

Today is day 2 and I have some mild pain return. I had a faith healing from my dad to help me and I still have the neck to deal with. I expect another epidural at the minimum in my neck.

It was painful, but bearable so this time I won’t have to be as in fear as I was with that first one. I had these with local anesthesia and not general iv surgery like the first time 7 years ago.

I think moving around  more would also help. I tend to stiffen up the longer I sit or lie down.
