I spent Thursday and Friday helping my friend's family start sorting through her stuff and carting some of it away. If that wasn't enough to leave me sore and tired I tripped and fell. Hit the corner of her dining room table with my ribs. I am some lovely colors from the bruising and hurt like you would not believe.

currently I am feeling quite amused though

I have just figured out the lyrics to a song were not what I thought

I thought the lyrics were, " I will shower you"

turns out the lyrics are I wish I were you. lol

I don't know if my ribs are broken or "just" bruised. Years ago I broke most of the ribs on my left side. I forgot how badly they hurt. Current situation is reminding me.

To top it off fibro and CFS decided to join in. Ribs hurt like holy hades. Rest of the bod joined the chorus. Plus I'm so tired I feel drunk half the time. Would someone please just shoot me and put me out of my misery?

Oh dear @lizardlady ...

I was just thinking the same thing myself yesterday.

How they'd take the old worn out nags out behind the barn and ...

Can't believe I think of myself like that sometimes!

Extra gentle hugs to you, and may today be a bit kinder to us.

Unhappy Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #6 ...

Another Tuesday is upon us pfibro pfriends ...

I wish I had more energy to do the things I want & need to do.

I often question myself - Am I just plain lazy?

Then I pfeel how my body pfeels ... I mean actually pfeel it!

It grieves me something fierce!

I planned on grabbed items from Sprouts and Whole Foods however fatigue was very high today.

Im going to Spouts and Whole Foods ASAP. I get all my fresh fruits, vegetables and smoothie ingredients at both places.

I decided to stay home, get a few things done around the house and get ready for the week ahead.

I finished folding my laundry.

Dinner was easy. I cooked hamburgers yesterday. We had leftovers, I baked sweet potatoes and acorn squash.

My paper planner is caught up for the week.

I budget for May 2022 is completed.

My teenager is going to day camp and school.
I need to add the start date to my planner.

I will also add the first day of school for 2022-2023.

Got some good news pfor a change ...

Medicare kicks in on 09/01 of this year!

The 24 month waiting period is based on when they determine your disability benefits begin, and pfor me that was Sept. 2020.

Needless to say I'm relieved, because I won't be without health insurance as long as I thought I would!

WooHoo!

How are you & your orchids doing @lizardlady?

Betty's been blooming since January!

I've had a total of 5 pflowers so pfar, & two more are in the works.

Who'd've thought a plant could bring so much joy?

May Sunday Be Kind To Us!

Since January?!? That's awesome!

I moved mine back outside on Easter. They are doing well. As they finish blooming I've been repotting them. Am experimenting with different types of pots. I'll take some pics and post them.
