Well well here I am again.  Ya I know I've been told before nono    Spent 4 days with my daughter and grandkids,the big last hoorah before school started and my SIL gets back from being out to sea. Other then a birthday party I don't go over there when he is home,we knock heads badly and for good reason but that's another story.  The main complaint I had on the last 4 day jaunt was lack of sleep and alot of pain after a day of playing with the kids in the sun but this time was different.  They had a big day of shopping planned on monday with all the sales and since I am trapped in a small town most days they included me in on this trip so I could shop as well.  I should have known big trouble was coming when we got a late start monday morning because of me moving so slow.  Was thrown right back into the no sleep thing with my grandkids taking up much of the day and by the time they got in bed and my daughter wanted me time I was already so ready for bedtime but stayed up to apease her.
 
So here I was dragging butt and every joint in my body screaming NOOOOOO and pulled myself up by the bootstraps and we were on our way.  By 4 pm I was hunched over looking more like the halloween costumes in the store then myself and the kids could see gramma was fading fast not to mention my blood sugar was bottoming out and Jakob my 8 yr old grandson was shoving smartie candies in my mouth as fast as I could chew them.  We decided to head over to an early dinner / late lunch at a pizza place.  After the confusion of getting 4 pizza's and various other sides ordered the kids dragged me over to the video games shouting GRAMMA GRAMMA ya right the whole you can doooooooo ittttttt yeah (in my best Tony Little voice) well I couldnt do it,in fact I suck but after a hour of bending over cheering them on I was even more bent.  We had the food which also sucked bleck! (and all for over 50 dollars!)  and it was right back out into the shopping grind.  By now the kids are tired and fighting and yelling and I am tired and fighting back and yelling smhair and my daughters friend although pleasant has horrid kids so I wanted to kill the one she brought with her and ya I got to admit I was rather mean and nasty to the little wretch skull
 
We finally pulled back into my daughter place to go through all thier finds(I didnt find much I was too sore to look)I call Jay and he's mad cause I forgot to call him back the night before(don't even remember saying I would but sure he is right ) and didn't tell him we were going shopping(my bad) so he had been worried all night with good reason so I apoligized every which way and then spent the rest of the night watching movies and going to bed at(you guessed it) 4 am againnnnnn.  Was woke up by kids climbing on me around 7 or 8 and knowing it was my last day there got out of bed only to find that I could barely move.  The pain was assulting me from every direction and I just wanted to cry and did.  Even the kids were scared and yelling somethings wrong with gramma.  I told everyone to just give me some time and took some pain meds and went out on the front deck in the sunshine to wait for them to work.  Omg that sunshine felt soooooo good, I never wanted to move.  I was set to go home at 2pm and although I had trouble leaving those cryin faces I was so ready to go home.
 
And of course the first day back I didnt want to dissapoint Jay by being a drag so right after getting home and unpacking I walked over to meet him at work and walk home with him and of course just had to offer to walk even farther to get him some dinner.  I was so ready for bed last night and was nodding off hours before it was time to go to bed but too stubborn to just go to bed early cause I didnt want to bail on Jay either.  I dont think I am ever going to get over this sense of feeling like I am disapointing the ppl I love.  And yet it's not just a sense if it,it is true.  If I don't go through with whatever they want of me I do dissapoint them and they still let me know it too. After thinking I had my mom understanding how hard it is for me(and you would think she would understand,she was just dx'd with fibro!!)she wasted no time in calling me when I got home to tell me all she wanted from me today.  Hey at least she was willing to wait till today even though she said she would just have to suffer till then.  Early this morning I woke up in severe pain and I was still so tired.  I took some pain meds and went back to bed only to wake within the hour feeling like I hadnt takin any pain meds at all so I took another one hoping to dull this roar of pain and here I still sit with it being too late to go back to bed and still too sore to do so even if I had the time.
 
I guess I don't want the good times to end and I know many of them will if I give in to the pain.  How do you get back those missed moments if you do pass on the good times now?  you don't and that's the plain truth.  Maybe with my other health concerns I worry that there won't be that many days left for me period and I want to leave this world with my grandchildren having only the best memories of me,memories I never had to cherish from my own grandparents.  And maybe I am still making up for all the disapointments in my daughters life,dreams that I never made come true that I am living now with her and my grandkids in the now.  I worry after having 2 strokes already if this pain I am in now is worth it or not and I truly can't give myself a good answer.  Most of the time when I am in my worst pain I am alone and others don't get to exsperience that with me not that I would wish that on them but they might understand more if they did.  Jay has been here on many occasion when I had to be picked up off the bathroom floor or helped to the bathroom but even he seems to be an out of sight out of mind person as when I tell him I have had a bad day he still seems to expect I am 100% the rest of the day. 
 
It is so true that most of us were and are perfectionists and pleasers and maybe thats what helped bring us to this place in our lives now.  It seems a shame that wanting to have things a certain way or to be there for eveyone would be punished by this dreaded disease.  So then what? the slackers have a great life with no pain?  seems so sometimes.  Maybe I just think too darn much and I am so thankful I have this place to unload my feelings on when I am alone and in pain and don't know what to do to get through it.  At any rate who knows how many times I will be in this place until I just give out for good.  Hope my days arent that numbered cause even with all the pain the last four days I sure had some great moments inbetween like pile ups full of laughter rolling on the bed in the mornings and heck, pileups in the easy chair too when everyone wants to sit on grammas lap at once and Lauren looking up at me and saying she has the most beautiful gramma in the whole world or Jakob slapping me a high 5 and saying gramma your the best!!! even now these memories warm my heart and bring tears to my eyes and I think how do you say no to that?  thanx for listening :-)

Hi Karen,
 
I honestly think that when we can't quite do the things that the grandchildren want us to do, we just do what we can.  We are still making memories.
 
My grandkids understand that grandma can't do what she would like to be able to do and they go easy on me.  My little granddaughter wants grandma to play in her room.  But being she is a girl, there is no rough play.  Usually dolls and her kitchen center.  Grandson's use to want me to play the video games, especially because they knew they could beat grandma.LOL
 
So either way, you will have fond memories.  I think that you are just tired from all of the excitement and shopping.  You will feel better once you get some rest.  And always remember to try to take a camera.  That is what I do.  Sometimes I do forget to use it, fibrofog, but at least it is there for the special moments.
 
Best wishes to many fond memories with your family.  Remember, we taught you the word no.  And expect you to use it, especially when things become to much for you.  I know that your mother puts a lot of pressure on you, but it is up to you to pace yourself.  One moment at a time.
 
Luv and hugs,  ...Karen

Karen,

I am the same way as you, I hate to disappoint my family.  I do so many stupid things that just get me into trouble.  But how do you look into the faces of your loved ones and say no.  It's hard to change a whole lifetime of behavior.  We are caretakers and we need to see the joy on the faces of our loved ones.  It makes us feel needed and loved.  Even though you had a busy weekend, it sounds like you made some great memories.  Next time, pace yourself and let your daughter know that you need to get to bed at a respectible hour so that you can be more productive the next day.  And if that doesn't work, we are always here to listen.  I hope you get some much needed rest.

Hi Karen,  I to feel like I let my family down.  My daughter goes to tech college and all her friends mothers drive them, no me. She doesnt really say anything but I feel it.  That is just one example.  Everyday there are heaps.  I feel a failure totally because none of the extended family understand and still expect things the same, in fact so do my own family.  I just try be  there for my daughter to talk to now , thats one thing I can still do.  Dont think the guilt ever totally goes, lets face it we have basically lost the person we were and we moarn for that person.  But how you did all that with the grandkids ect , Welll done..  Our husbands can be like little kids themselves for sure.  hugs feel good about what you accomplished.   susez2 shocked shocked cool cool

cry  QTKaren,

That was one of the most beautiful, sincere, honest posts I have read in a long time. Thank you for sharing that with us, even though I know just typing it and revealing your heart, fears and hopes had to have worn you out.

Alot of what you said sounds like me.  I miss my grandkids because I cannot drive that far and they are so busy.  BUT, they know their Gigi (thats me! lol) loves them so much and I know they love me and that laughter and giggles truly is priceless.

Again, thank you for sharing that. I hope you get your much needed rest and hopefully get back to YOUR LEVEL  of YOUR WELLNESS as soon as possible.

QTK,
 
Oh, how I feel your pain (and not just the physical kind this time). sad   I've spent a good part of my life letting people down and disappointing them, so now I go way overboard trying to be the best "people pleaser" that I can be.  Even though I live alone, I go out of my way to make eveyone else happy-except for me. eyes
 
I've even been stupid enough to promise my mother how much of a help I can be when I move home (she's now promising October-I'll believe it when my feet hit that southern soil).  Why do we give so much of ourselves just to make other people happy-especially when our bodies (not our hearts) betray us?  It's so frustrating-and when our own families don't understand, it's even worse. cry
 
I can't imagine trying to explain what I'm going through to little kids.  Just know that they love their Gramma-and we love you, too. blush   Besides, who else would make a better babbling partner? confused
 
 
Breath,
 
Gigi?  LOL-you've reminded me how kids in the south call their grandparents fun names.  My personal favorite is Mee-maw, but my mom refuses to be called that (she grew up in the Midwest).  Anyway, thanks for the little reminder of home.  All I need now is a Cracker Barrel and some sweet tea! smilewinkgrin

cry  Dear QTKaren: i take care of my Dad who has alzheimers. about once every four months, one of my sons or a brother comes here to give me a day and a half off. Usually I go to a motel, and just visit when it's physically possible with my other son, his girlfriend, and occasionally other relatives. When I'm in pain, I cry. I just can't stand it, it hurts so bad. On the two occasions over the past two years, when I stayed with my son(s), I was curled up on the sofa in a warm fuzzy blanket, crying. They know I was hit by a truck in 2002, but they don't understand how the Fibro settles in where the original injury was, limited my recovery (the Physical Therapist fired me, saying, we can't help you anymore due to the fibro.) So, it is what it is, it's the best I can do. I have to set limits or I'll end up paying a hugh price for pushing hrough the pain and making myself do things, I know I will pay for dearly. I hope my family understands, I don't think they do. Pain for most people comes, responds to short=term treatment and is gone. With us, it comes and stays, and tays and stays. How can someone who hasn't experienced this, going to know that we're not just attention seeking, self-absorbed, sissies. Because there are no outside signs, no open gaping wounds, we're not believed. Even the doctors treat us as drug seeking lepers. Yes, dear Karen, set limits, and cry if you need to (it actually releases endorphins) so might be therapeutic. When Gramma is crying tell them you're crying to make yourself feel better. Hugs.

Hi Karen-

I overdid it Tuesday as it was my youngest son's birthday and people were coming over in the evening for cake. Getting myself cleaned up, many errands, getting the house ready and did not pace myself at all. Not good! Talk about pain in my legs yesterday!!! I felt that he deserved a nice birthday. So on these occassions I feel it is worth it.

Please be kind to yourself for a couple days now and try not to do too much. And you do know if family doesn't understand- WE do! GamJill

Karen, it took a long time for me to realize I ran on guilt and fear. My maternal grandmother never acknowledged her grandchildren existed. I was 27 when she died and never had a conversation with the women. I felt nothing when she died cause she meant nothing to me. My mother and I were like oil and water and she wasn't the best grandmother either although better than her mother was. So I lived my life in fear of being like these women when it come to my children and then grandchildren and really didn't know what normal was. I have been so determined to be a better mother and grandmother than they were that I think I have the word "sucker" tattooed on my forehead that only my children and grandchildren can see. When I leave this world I only want them to have happy memories of me and I sure don't want them to not feel love for me cause I was never there for them. But I finally had to make my own normal and set limits. You can only do what you can do and yes I wish I had more energy for my grandchildren, this isn't the way it was suppose to be, but it is the way it is. I talk to my grandchildren and I make special time for each one and it is never enough time as far as I'm concerned but it is all I can do. You know if truth be known I'm sure my grandchildren never give it a thought that I don't spend enough time with them. It's all guilt and fear that I have put on myself. It's taking me a long time but I am getting much better at this. I'm so far from being like my grandmother and mother and I finally realize that.
 
luv and hugs

This must have been the weekend for overdoing. I'm still recovering from a Sunday family get together. I so want to see the all here, but there's not enough room for everyone, the little ones tear the house apart and it ends up being a ton of work. I wish there were some way to make it easier... and maybe it will be when the grandkids are a bit older, but then they probably won't want to come! LOL! But great memories are made of good family times. If anyone figures out an easier way to do this please let me know! The holidays are killing me!

Hi guys,
 
Feeling much better today.  Pain levels are almost back to normal.  Yesterday was a hard day for me I hurt like crazy all day and was so tired and later in the afternoon I started feeling really Ill to the point of throwing up several times and was running a temp.  Not sure what that was all about except maybe my body was protesting in every way possible.  My grandkids have already learned some limits with me like not jumping on me or hanging on me and asking before climbing into my lap.  The 2 smallest still put thier hands up all the time for me to pick them up but then Jakob will chime in with"gramma hurts and can't do that anymore".  I let him know if it's ok at that time as it's pretty hard to make Kirsten understand since even though shes almost 3 yrs old it's more like dealing with a 18 month old baby.  Playing inside can be hard too at times because Jakob always wants me to play cars on the floor with him as does Lauren with her dollhouse but as much as I try to do this I always have to get up a few minutes later cause its too painful in that position.  This last visit Jakob and I devised a system with me sitting on his bed and him on the floor and making high ramps to run his cars on and then for Lauren I told her if we brought a chair in her room for me to sit on I could still play with her and her huge dollhouse but gramma would have to "live" on the upper floors so she came up with a plan that I was a rich lady and she was my maid and would bring things up to me lol.  As for Danielle she still cant understand why gramma can't bend way over to push baby strollers with her and Kirsten likes to be tossed up in the air and theres no way I can do that so we lay on the bed and I tickle her and play peek a boo there and she loves for me to read to her same for all the kids.  Each night before bed my daughter has the kids form a half circle around her on the floor and she reads them a couple stories so I get to fill in for that when I visit.
 
These kids have so much energy and are so full of life.  Today after my doctors appt I have to go over to my moms to clean her apartment up since she is having a state inspection for her section 8 housing and if that place isnt in top shape they write her up and come back ten days later to make sure all the violations have been fixed and if its still not done then they cancel her housing and she is homeless.  I asked her to please do some stuff today so I wont have so much to do when I come home but she is still in slow and slower mode most of the time.  Her attitude is getting better since I finally convinced her to go on prozac for her clinical deppresion.  That was a huge move on her part as we have been trying for at least 10 years to get her to get help.  She is also taking Lyrica now and not taking nearly so much narcotics so she said she finally understands that for some pain that narcotics are not the answer.  She had a mountain of laundry waiting for me yesterday but I got that all done last night and just have to deliver it to her and get her to put it away.  I told her if one batch of clothes isnt put away by the time she needs clothes done again that I wont wash more till the first batch is put away and she found out fast that I meant it lol.
 
Well gotta go and start getting ready for my appt today time for the whole shower and shaving thing.  Kelly....I promise to write back to you by tomorrow morning.  I did get your e-mail and havent forgot =)
 
Soft Hug's,
Karen

Jeannie143!
Oh no you dint! You brought up the dreaded holidays! OmGosh I cannot handle the holidays. That time of the year puts me in such a tail spin and thats when my family really starts tearing me to literally pieces because they just dont understand how i cannot handle ALL the running  from home to home , doing the same thing over and over,  in homes that are bursting to the seams with children aka "ankle biters' running and screaming, family members fighting because they cant stand each other anyway! And how they think i can cook for 2-3 days straight, and then clean up at everyones house because I was able to do that at one time in my life but i just cant do it now anymore.(but everyone THINKS I can and that I am just lazy now) Someone on these boards HAS to have the answer to all of this. If anyone out there is planning on spending their time alone during the holidays and dont mind going out to eat on thanksgiving and xmas let me know!  lol  For the last 3-4 years now, instead of going to families homes where everyoen is so tired and hateful, I have gone to local resturants that have these wonderful holidays buffets, all you can eat, great food, and I mean great food. No clean up and everyone there is so happy! I have actually talked a couple of family members to join me and they loved it! It is not as expensive as what you pay at home. Then if needed to meet at someones house to exchange gifts or sit around and just visit and its close to where I live and if i have the energy, then i can usually go for a few minutes and actually have a midly pleasant time. That way also if anyone wants to bake or cook a special desert, then that can be enjoyed in a slow enoyable pace and the kids by that time are usually ready for a nap. 
I had not even thought about the holidays until just now
Jeannie143...thanks so much!  lol j/k. Take care,

Okay Jeannie I will tell you it gets easier as they get older if that is what you want to hear, hehehe. smilewinkgrin It does get easier in some ways and harder in other ways.
 
I have found you don't have to be good at sports or a ballerina to make beautiful memories with your grandchildren. They don't remember the home cooked meals as much as they do grandma spending one on one time with them talking and drawing pictures. Going to one store shopping with them and letting them pick out something they like is as good as an all day shopping trip for a child. Taking a short walk and holding hands is as good as a trip around the world to them. Having a tea party or picnic is as great as the fanciest restaurant. Curling up in bed together and watching one of their favorite movies til they fall asleep is a biggy. It's not the quantity of time spent it's the quality of time they remember.
 
We have figured out all kinds of ways around fibro to live our lives so it's the same with grandchildren.

All of you,
Thanks for the perspective. You are right about the fancy big meals... One year we had Take and Bake Pizza for Christmas and I think it was one of our best ones yet! I need to start reconfiguring the whole big meal thing and work on the fun times. Maybe I'll have a big pow wow with the daughters and see what they think of this. Big meal out and then dessert at home sounds heavenly! Desserts can be made ahead and cold cuts and sub buns could take care of the late time hungries. I'm thinking, no dishes, no cooking, no groceries, no fattening leftovers!!! This could work.

I'm going to take an honest look at my options and see what I can come up with. We all have small homes and it does get a bit crowded but it's also so good to see each other. It's the visiting that counts with the memories, not the darned food! I'm definitely gonna work on this.

We already do the non traditional meal for x-mas eve when the whole family gets together. We all meet in the club house at my mom's apartment and we each pitch in with different deli meats and cheeses, chips and breads and then some bring store bought dessert and I usually bring a few pies and sweet breads. That way the kids can be fed early and then the adults can eat when they please while everyone opens gifts. Jayson and I usually have a quiet meal and x-mas day but thanksgiving is the killer for me since I do all the cooking and baking for days in advance. My daughter is learning some things but other then her there are no other cooks in the family. Heck my brother has to beg to get a tuna sandwich out of his wife. My SILand niece are strictly dine out and take out all the way.
