This isn't fibro related, but is paid related. Yesterday, going down my front steps, I slipped, landed on my butt and slid down the steps. I'm not injured, but boy howdy I hurt today!

the assessment wasn't too bad and the woman didn't stay long (thank god for that!). she saw how much I was struggling, even to lift myself out of my chair and not even an hour in to it she had loads for her report

when I asked her if I'll see her again she's like no, probably not. I don't think I can help you really

still she's going to go back and make a report and see what happens from that

Bad Day Check List

1). Have you been eating healthy?

What have you been feeding yourself lately?

Are you hungry right now?

Could you make yourself some food?

2). Are you hydrated?
Do you need some water or juice?

3). Have you been sleeping enough lately?
Do you need to lay down right now and take a nap?

4). Do you need to shower?
Would a change of clothes help?

5). Are your surroundings neat and tidy?
Could you tidy up your room a bit?

6). Have you been in nature recently?
Have you gotten some sunshine?
Could you take some vitamin D right now?

7). Have you moved your body?
Do you need to go for a walk?
Or go for a run?
Would working out help?

8). Have you spoken to someone who can help you work out your thoughts and feelings?
Is there someone in your life that you can open up to and be vulnerable with?

9). Do you need peace and quiet?
Would meditation help?
Or would listening to music help?

10). Do you need to cry?

I DONATED PLATELETS IN SEPTEMBER. I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM THE RED CROSS ABT MY WBC (WHITE BLOOD CELLS).

WHITE BLOOD CELLS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM, HELPING YOUR BODY TO FIGHT OFF DISEASES AND INFECTIONS. IF YOU HAVE TOO FEW WHITE BLOOD CELLS, YOU HAVE A CONDITION KNOWN AS LEUKOPENIA.

I’LL BE GOING TO A HEMATOLOGIST SPECIALIST TO TEST FOR “AUTOIMMUNE LEUKOPENIA.”

I SPOKE TO THE NURSELINE THROUGH MY HEALTH INSURANCE AND IT DID HELP.

A FEW MONTHS AGO, I WAS HAPPY ABT NOT HAVING ENDOMETRIOSIS.

STAYING BUSY HELPS ME NOT WORRY. I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO VOLUNTEERING WITH A LOCAL UNHOUSED OUTREACH PROGRAM THIS MONTH.

Did a short mountain road trip to look at the Autumn leaves today ...

Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #6 ...

I kept it short & sweet as I just don't have the stamina & energy I used to.

Besides, I hate public restrooms ...

They're like a box of chocolates - You never know what you're gonna get! Pfortunately a well tended state park, with handicap access right at the door, was just a pfew miles up the road - Whew!

I only got one shot, and that was pfrom the driver's seat in a pull off by the lake ...

Lovely pic Pflower!

I have similar feelings about public bathrooms since Covid. I know you don't get Covid from the toilet seat. I just feel uncomfortable. Like you said, you never know what you're going to get. Icky....

TRIGGER WARNING ⛔️ (long post)
Crimes Against Individuals with Disabilities
•I Recently Spoke with an Elder Family Member Abt This Topic. It’s Still Weighing Heavy on My Mind.

Crimes of Opportunity
•Some People will “Befriend” Folx with Disabilities, Seeking to Gather Info with the Sole Intent to Rob a Person with Disabilities.

•These People Ask If You Receive SSI/SSDI.
•Ask Your Disabilities and What Medications You Take.
•Ask If You Use a Bank or SSA Direct Express Card.
•Suddenly Take an Interest in YOU.

TRIGGER WARNING ⛔️
•My Auntie’s Best Friend from Childhood, an Elder was Robbed and Murdered along with her Son.

•They Left a Check Cashing Place, was Followed Home by a Complete Stranger. Who Robbed Them, Beat Them and Attempting to Cover Up the Crime by Setting Their Residence on Fire.

•When I Experience Brain Fog from Medications, I DO NOT Divulge the TRUTH to Most People I Interact with. I DO NOT Care What People ASSUME When I Experience Brain Fog.

•I Blame Insomnia/Sleep Deprivation, Out of Concern Someone will Target Me with the Intent to Rob a Disabled Person.

•Befriending is NOT the Only Method. Acquaintances, Family Members, Friends, New Romantic Interest, Can Prey on Individuals with Disabilities.

•While Visiting My Grandma, a Local Pastor and Family Friend, Asked What I Received Disability for. I Told Him it’s Private. I Learned He’s a Pain Med Addict. I Told My Mama and Grandma to use Caution.

•One of My Sisters was “Love Bombed”, a New Romantic Interest Came Over to “Netflix and Chill.” She Fell Asleep, Woke Up, He was Gone and so was Her Prescription Meds.

•My auntie, who transitioned December 20th, 2020, was born with a rare disease called “Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita.” She was in a wheelchair her entire life. My auntie was robbed while in her WHEELCHAIR.

•Individuals with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita require home healthcare for LIFE. This rare disease is NOT a DEVELOPMENT disability. It DOES impact joints, joint/bone development, range of motion and susceptibility to bone fractures.

•If You have One Chronic Illness, important to remember Others have multiple Chronic Illnesses. Although this Might Not Pertain to You, It Does Pertain to Others.
