So sorry, dear one.

Do you take any meds for fibro? I take Cymbalta--and I think it helps.

Thanks Trav. No, I don't take any meds for fibro. I talked with my pdoc about trying it after a GP suggested it. I would have to taper off one of my anti-depressants before I could try it. I decided against it because for a couple of reasons. First, it took a lot of time to find a drug combo that works for me. I don't want to rock that boat. Second, the last time I tried tapering off one of my anti-depressants I got suicidal. Don't want to go there.

An observation about fibro/CFS and retirement...

I just realized today that I no longer have to try to push through the pain and fatigue anymore. When I was working I'd make myself do things because of time constraints. If I gave in and left myself rest I felt guilty because I was letting things go. It just dawned on me that I don't have to do that anymore.

I feel like poo today and was fussing to myself about getting things done. Then it dawned on my that if I need to spend the day on the couch I can!

Sweet, isn't it @lizardlady?

It's nice not having to participate in the rat race anymore ...

Enjoy that day on the couch, you've more than earned it!

Well, there is certainly no doubt about this ...

Tomatoes are not my friend!

After not having any for quite a while, I indulged and ...

Whew Boy!

So stiff and brittle I can't hardly move, and pain levels have blown clear off that MFN pain chart!

There is a cold front approaching from the north. There's a tropical storm/hurricane approaching from the south.

cold front = fibro pain
storm/hurricane = fibro pain
Cold front +storm = PAIN!!!!!
