For the past four days, I have been wearing myself down cleaning the house and taking care of my son, and making sure the house stays clean. I have been trying to ignore the pain and fatigue, but it has finally gotten to me. I feel even more depressed today. I feel like I am falling apart. I hurt everywhere, even when I am on my pain meds...those just numb me for a little while. I feel like curling up in a ball and not doing anything...I know there are things that need to be done, and I am pushing myself to do them...I feel like I am about to break. Can someone please help me?

Hi Tiki,

Sometimes we just have to go with the flow and let some of our housework go. When you are in a flare, like it sounds you are, sometimes you have to just ride it out. Trying to keep going and worrying about it will only wear you down. So try to get some rest and keep us posted.

Hugs, Karen...

Sometimes it is hard to let things go because then I get in the habit of not caring, and then it takes a whole lot longer to clean. I am going to do laundry tonight, which I know is going to take it out of me...but when you have no clean undies, that means it has to be done...*sigh* I'm afraid to take too many pain pills because I am afraid I will run out. I have to have the med in my system every month when I go to the doctor or I won't get them. They have this rule about that because a lot of people will say they need them just so they can sell them. SO I am just trying to do my best to ride it out, but I feel the energy leave me even as I am typing this. Please, just keep me in your thoughts or prayers, or whatever.

Tiki, try pacing yourself.  Do your laundry one day, dust and vacuum a second day, mop another day, etc.  Take many breaks when doing these things.  Pick the part of your day that is the best part with the most energy to do this.  Mornings are the best for me once I get moving, so I do my work in the morning.  I rest or get on the computer in the afternoon and then make dinner.  Then I'm done for the day. 
 
If you have children, give them some chores to do that will help you out.  That's what families are supposed to do.  All the work is not supposed to fall on one person...especially if the person is having health problems.
 
You do need to keep moving.  If you sit or lay too long you will be stiff as a board and the pain will be worse.  It's so easy to not move with fibro but you are doing yourself a disservice if you do that.  Go for a walk every day.  If you are in a bad climate, walk in the house during the bad weather or get a walking-in-place video and "walk" in front of your television.  Leslie Sansone has some great ones.  You want the easiest one she has.  I have the "1,2,3 Fat Burner" video.  I only do it for 15 minutes and it's equivilent to walking one mile.  I live in Florida so I walk my dog in the morning for a half an hour.  It gets the blood really flowing and feeding the muscles.  I always feel better after this low impact exercising.  It's the best thing for you and it doesn't cost anything to do, either!
 
Do the Great Stretching Exercises found in the Fibro 101 thread.  They really do help keep your muscles more flexible so you have less pain AND they are done sitting down!
 
I hope these suggestions will help you.  Have a good evening!

Hey there... I am sorry you are having such a hard time of it now. Tell me what all it is that you are responsible for. Maybe we can think of a way to prioritize things, or relax some things. I will not try and tell you to relax and not worry about everything- this is very serious to you and I think we can all relate to being overwhelmed and overworked. Maybe you can start to hope for something better and more your way if you take the pressure off of yourself to be perfect. I have learned over the past year something I wish I had recognized long ago- its our imperfections that creates our own unique beauty. I don't mean to be tacky or cliche'- :) I mean it! Look around at your world and see the beauty in the small, imperfect but joyful things. Maybe you can begin looking at yourself as an imperfect but beautiful person. Its the imperfections that give us our relationship with the world, and makes us part of something whole that is larger than us. Do you have a favorite author? If you read for pleasure, who do you read? Do you listen to music? Tomorrow try one thing different, just for you- take some small time and read, or think about some music or lyrics, and how they make you feel, and enjoy that. Please continue to let us know how you are and how you are feeling.
Peace!

Hi Tiki,
I agree with what everyone said so far. Be sure to pace yourself. Work a little while then rest. Do something you enjoy and that will help, too. Can you call your doctor for more pain medicine or something?

I am  obsesive compulsive and my house has to be spotless and everything organised which is just no loonger posible.  What I have done is I have one day thats a cleaning day and then a rest day.  On the cleaning days I have a Small list of things that must be done and I know that its in my capability.  My house is not spotless anymore but its tidy and I now wonder why I did half the things I use to do as know I cant even notice.   sue2z turn turn turn

Thanks everyone for your replies. I got the laundry(well, most of it) last night. I feel completely wiped now. I feel like I have been run over and truck that backed over me after running over me once and then running back over me again. I feel like I have a lot on my plate. I just feel like I have to do everything. I mean, my hubby is great with helping with the baby, but he's not that great about helping out with housework, and I think I really need to have a talk with him about that.

All of this is just so hard to deal with. It's so hard. It really is. I mean, there is so much involved in keeping the house clean. I mean, it's picking up toys and doing the dishes everyday so they don't pile up, it's picking up clothes and putting them in the hamper where they belong. It's a lot of things. And I feel like I have just lost it all. What I mean by that is that I feel like I am just completely drained now. I am in a lot of pain, which makes me take more pain pills. But, right now I feel like I have gone way beyond my limit. All I want to do is have a day to myself where I can just rest and not have to worry about everything...not have to worry about housework or anything like that. *sighs* I feel so depressed that I am so limited now. I feel like I shouldn't have to go through with any of this until I am older. I am only 20.

I live in Indiana, and the weather changes like crazy around here. Going up and down the stairs in our building just seems like I am running a marathon...

Anyways. Sorry. I feel like I am writing a novel. Maybe I should work on the one that I am writing. I don't know. Anyways. I hope to here from you all again soon.

Thanks for all your support and advice.

Tiki, what is the worse thing that is going to happen if you take a day off from cleaning and rest???
 
Suez, I'm so glad you learned that so much of what a perfectionist does in their house is not necessary and is a waste of precious time.
 
My DH use to tell me I was the only woman he knew that cleaned a clean house.
 
He sure can't say that. tongue It has been such a relief to let go of the obsessive compulsive cleaning I use to do.
 
Tiki, I so hope you can relax and let go of some of this.
 
luv and hugs

I'm trying, but it is hard. I hate it when my house is a mess because then I feel really embarrassed when we have company. And it's not like it's hard to keep a house clean once it already is, it's just picking up after yourself instead of letting it all go until it's a big mess. I just wish my husband would be a little more helpful in that area. Today he seems to be doing better with it. I just hope it continues.

I did take a nap. I just woke up from it. It made me feel a little more human, but not much. Sometimes I really just feel like a burden to my husband. I think that is one of the reasons why I have been pushing myself way too hard.

My mom says, when I tell her I have been pushing myself to keep the house clean, "Good for you honey. That's what you've got to do. Just push past the pain and things will get done." I know she means well and everything, and sometimes you do have to push past the pain to get some things done, but if you push yourself too hard when you have Fibro, it usually tends to push back, and push back hard. Kind of like a hurricane or a tornado or something...

I'm sorry Tiki.  Is there anyone you could have come over during the day and help you?  Maybe take the baby out for a long walk or just play with the baby so you can get some stuff done?

Your Mom does care and in a way she is right.  When I have a flare up, which I'm in one now, I feel like I just want to stop but I find by making myself keep the house clean, meals made, attend my girls sports, etc and that I CAN get it done and it is manageable if I keep moving.  I keep telling myself that I can't die from what I have so there is no reason why I can't get up and get things done.  I KNOW it is hard, boy oh boy is it hard, but by doing things a little at a time it all gets done.

Hang in there and don't be afraid to ask for help!!

Tiki, your Mom is right.  I know it's difficult but it can be done.  But, don't try to do everything all at once.  It will be there tomorrow.
 
You should really talk to your husband about helping out at home.  What caught my eye was the fact you had to pick up clothes to put in the hamper.  I'm sure you put your clothes in the hamper along with your baby's clothes, so that means you are picking up your husband's clothes.  Well, I had that experience when I first got married.  I tried and tried to get my husband to put his dirty clothes in the hamper.  He liked to go take a shower and throw his underwear behind the door.  I finally told him that ONLY the clothes that are in the hamper will be washed.  He still ignored me and his underwear pile got higher and higher.  I did washing but never touched his dirty underwear.  Finally one morning he wanted to know where all of his underwear was.  I told him to check behind the bathroom door.  He had to wear dirty underwear to work that day and I NEVER had to tell him to put his dirty clothes in the hamper again.
 
You are enabling him to do nothing because he knows that if he waits long enough, you'll do it.  I'm not picking on your husband.  Many men are like that because their Mom's picked up after them.  It just takes a little perserverance and he'll get the message.  You are to work together in a marriage.  It seems that society thinks all the dirty work falls in the women's department.  We get to change diapers, do dirty laundry, mop floors, and clean toilets.  There is something wrong with that picture!  LOL  So, try to get the message across to him that you truly need his help.

The thing about my husband is that he was raised in poverty. And when we first met, his mom's entire house was TRASHED. Not because of him, but because of his oldest younger brother and his friends. They partied all the time and didn't give a darn about kepping the house clean. His mom works twelve hour days at a very tough job, and she was just too tired to clean. Bobby would do some cleaning, and the next day it would be trashed all over again, so he finally just gave up. He does help me clean, but it's like he waits days to do it. It just kind of irks me because it's not hard to keep a clean house clean. All you have to do is remember to pick up after yourself. He says he'll do something, then he like forgets or something, and then the next day he says he'll do it, and sometimes he does, but other times something else comes up.

He knows I need help, and he does try, but he takes his own sweet time doing it. Our son usually goes to bed pretty early at night, so it's not hard to get the quieter cleaning done while he is asleep. If you only have one day's worth of dishes, they can be done in like 15 mins.

I did get some rest today, thankfully. I actually got TWO naps in, which I am so thankful for because I haven't had any naps befoer today is like a week. Naps tend to help keep me going. *sigh* There are so many thoguhts and emotions and pain going through me right now that it is hard to keep my thoughts straight. Somedays, I just feel completely lost...

Tiki, my DH is the same way your's is and it drives me up a wall. He never sees the urgency to get anything done. He is so layed back and I want it done NOW. I swear if we are having company and he has a list of to do things the man waits til the door bell rings to get moving. He has no idea how much stress this has caused me over the years.
 
Now that a lot more has fallen on his shoulders to do he is getting better at it. But it has taken five years of me having fibro for him to really get this. So be patient and write list for him to do. My DH has taken on jobs he never had to do when I was healthy so for a long time he never thought about doing them. Now a lot of things I use to do is becoming a part of his daily schedule. The man never even had to take out the trash before I got fibro. He was really rather spoiled when it came to doing things around the house. That's one reason I don't feel guilty about him having to do more.
 
luv and hugs

I am a clean freak and for the past 2 days I was bedridden....for the 1st time in my life. I slept non-stop through an extreme flare and when I awoke this morning I felt guilty for not having things perfect. But I did it...got everything back to normal and even went to the store. An Ipod with loud music helps me get through the cleaning when I am flaring. My problem is I feel more stress when things are unorganized and not pefect so although I push myself the end result brings me peace and an inner sense of well-being. (yes, I will feel horrible tomorrow physically but not mentally) Get help if you can and pace yourself. (I take breaks) I had a long discussion with my family tonight about being taken advantage of when I am "sick" and they need to at least pick up a bit and not leave me with a disaster. I've had this talk with them several times before and it doesn't sink in though. devil lol I know what the problem is...they don't clean as well as I do so they don't try hard. But the house was filthy for a couple of days and now all is good again. And I survived it. So when it gets as diry again I know I can handle it. But I refuse to feel guilty.....

It's hard for me to not feel guilty when things don't get done. I am somewhat of a perfectionist, and when I see a bunch of stuff lying around, it drives me crazy. It's like the house won't get cleaned unless I do. My husband will do the dishes every now and then, but that is pretty much it...

The past few days I have been relaxing, and I feel guilty about it. I took care of my son more the other day, and when my husband got back home, I passed out from exhaustion for three or four hours.

I want my husband to get a job because I can't stand being poor. But I just don't know how I am going to handle it. I don't really have many people who can help me. My sister does, but she has to know at least a day or two in advance. My mom would help me, but she works really hard, and her husband is kind of a jackass. He loves my son, but for some reason he doesn't like it when my mom comes over to help me out.

I feel so alone. I feel like I have no one, and I feel like no one really cares about me. I know that they do, but I don't think they really believe how much pain I am in. The only person who can see it is my husband and that is because he knows me so well. People tell me all the time that I "don't look sick". My thought on that is that just because I don't look sick doesn't meant that I'm not.

Somedays I just want to get away from it all. I feel like such a burden on everyone. Not just because of the fibro, but also because I don't have a job and we have to ask our families for money. Our town here in Indiana isn't really hiring any jobs, or any jobs that would make a difference.

Anyways. I would like to keep talking, but I don't want to write a novel for you all.

I've always lived by the motto "a place for everything and everything in it's place". Well I use to before fibro. tongue I know what you girls mean about a neat house equals a calm mind cause I have the same problem. This family room drives me up a wall and I have spent the past two days trying to figure out how to keep it better organized. We live in this room, I can't even remember the last time anyone was in the living room. But if anyone important ever comes to visit I have a nice clean living room for them to sit and that does take some of the pressure off of me when it comes to unexpected company. I can shut the door to this family room and no one has to see the mess.
 
Anyway, back to what I was saying. I'm all about storage. The biggest mess can be reduced to nothing with the right storage. I've decided what would help me is end tables with drawers in them. I can clean off the end table beside me and the next day it's full again. So I was looking online yesterday for cheap end tables with drawers. I won't spend much money on them cause this is a room where we eat and drink.
 
So perhaps to make some of your jobs easier you might want to look at some cute storage ideas that will save you steps during the day and make cleaning up easier and faster. I've always used hanging shoe thingies you put on the back of doors to keep small things and you can see through them so it makes finding things easy.
 
With the lack of energy and pain fibromites can get very creative in how we do things.

It's hard to find good organizational things when you have no money. And, in my case, really no place to put them. Our apartment is small, and we are running out of room to put things and still keep the house at least fairly neat.

It's all just so tiring. And the more tired I am, the more pain I am in, which makes me depressed, which makes me have more pain and fatigue. It really is a vicious cycle. I know that I am not alone in my suffering, but most days it really feels like it.

I have been thinking about writing a book about fibro, or maybe just starting off small and making a website. I don't know. I love to be creative. I love to write. It's motivating myself to do it that is the problem, though. It's hard for me to get motivated to do much of anything. Everyday is a battle. I know you all understand.

Marlee. Yep. Organization is the key. Everything has a place.But.....my messy child doesn't quite get this. lol The worlds worst at not returning something to the original place. Rummaging through drawers (with organized plastic baskets, etc) to find scicssors and destroying my orderly work. ugh. So-oo. When I see that things are quite messy again I start chunking out stuff. I tried to find some scotch tape the other day and it should be in the tape/scissor/staper office supply drawer in nifty little containers and I found everything from school papers to gum wrappers. No tape. (found it in her room where I promptly emptied out all of her drawers so she could get organized) And although they try to help me clean they just don't quite get it right. Messy people! lol
Tiki. Sorry you're dealing with all of this right now. Hugs to you. I understand that no one understands how we feel pain-wise and some days it does suck to have so many overwhelming things going on at once. But just keep your head up and know that things always get better. How about those plastic cubes to put stuff in (they are cheap) and I use decorative round hat-boxes for makeup and stuff. Target always has cool containers around this time of the year (dorm room stuff) and there are lots of cheap alternative containers. Good luck to you and good vibes are being sent your way. :))

I would love to get those cube things, and the little plastic toy boxes, but I have NO money. My husband is having a hard time finding a job, and I can't work because I am too limited by my Fibro.

I know I was going to say more, but I honestly can't remember what it was...so I will say goodbye for now.

Anonymouse, that drives me crazy when I go to get something and it's not where it is suppose to be. Our power went out a couple of weeks ago about bedtime and I could not find a flashlight anywhere in this house and ended up getting the one out of the car. My DH use to blame the kids when I couldn't find something but there are no kids living here now and things disappear all the time.
 
Tiki, I hope your DH finds a job soon. The stress of that could be adding to your pain. It can be a vicious circle.
 
How old is your baby??? I did not have fibro when I was raising children but we have many mothers on here that have several children so maybe they can give you tips on how to manage your baby on your own.

Marlee,

My baby is 11 months old. His 1st b-day is coming up fast. He is a really busy boy, and getting really heavy. He was a preemie. He was two months early and weighed 3lbs 11oz. Now he is 17 1/2lbs. That is very heavy to me. I would be grateful to any of the mothers on here who raised children while suffering from Fibro.

My husband has been really looking for a job, but no place is hiring. Our town is kind of a dying town, though it didn't used to be. I live in "Stoplight City" or "The City of Firsts". LOL. A lot of people from one of the factories just got laid off, almost 600 people, I believe, so it is really hard to find a job here. Right now, he does odd jobs for people to make a little money, and that helps some. (BTW, what does DH mean? I have never heard of that one before, and I have heard of a lot.)

May your heart be filled with love and joy.
May your mind be clear and true.
May your smiles be many,
And may your tears be few. 
May God wrap you in His arms
Especially when you're feeling blue.
