Truro's a good spot. We used to take our dogs up to Victoria Park a lot for outings but now I can't do the walking :( Amost can't do the 1 hour drive anymore.

I hate winter in NS with a passion! Couldn't shovel so got a snowblower a couple of years ago. Now, have to get a smaller snowblower because I can't manhandle the big one anymore.

I'm a guy BTW. My wife says I probably got fibro because I have a strong feminine side :)

lots of ontario people here!

diane, i used to live outside of middleton and went to the high school there.

kelly, margaretsville was one of the feeder communities into the high school in middleton, so i'm very familiar with that area, too. i had a good friend from there who i've lost touch with over the years.
 
lorraine, my family took it's first trip to newfoundland a couple years ago ~ what a beautiful province!

small, small world, isn't it?

great to meet you all.

Northumberland Straight, Nova Scotia. Frequently in Truro as Stepmom is in a nursing home, there. I take care of my Dad, he has Alzheimers. Right now we got walloped with about two ft. of snow, but it drifted so its like four feet in places. I went out to clear doorways and walkways and now am paying the price, laid up in bed with one of those Therma Care heatwraps. Also have a "bed buddy", a heat wrap, not a botfriend, but today I prefer the Thermacare b/c I don't have to walk out to re-heat it every hour. They are way expensive, but I only use them to reward myself when I've done something heroic, like clearing snow away from walkways. No way I can shovel car out - that would kill me. I am awaiting an angel or a thaw for that. Pleased to make your aquaintance. Do you notice a fair ammount of skepticism from the medical profession when you say," I have Fibromyalgia". I was living in Florida for a few years untill 2005. I never had any problems getting help for the Fibro. Now, having returned home, I notice many Docs look at me funny when I say that. If I require medication for pain, especially, they won't help me until I explain I was also run down by a truck in 2002.

Hi Lady and welcome!! We have logs of Canadians in our fibro family...and now one more with you here. I got to know one gal very well who is from the Moncton area. I'll email her and ask if she can respond. She hasn't been too active lately, new baby and all.

I want to say hello and welcome also to the new member, Schutzhund, from Richmond, B.C., I had a great Aunt who spent most of her adult life there. She was a radical in her time. She used to come to visit my grandmother, (they grew up together), and take my Nana out on great adventures which would rile my Papa up because he was a Traditional Paternal (a woman belongs at home in the kitchen), kind man. However, he was intimidated by great Auntie Kathleen and would not tangle with her. I had other relatives there, but in Vancouver. I went there for a summer when I was about 15, wow, what a time we had. Anyway, I'm glad you have your Fibro under control. I was curious about the 2.5mgs. of Amyltriptilene. That's a very low dose. Do you notice any positive or negative effects. I take 100 mgs. at bedtime. Usually, if i'm not under a great deal of stress, it will keep me sleeping for a good seven hours. When under stress, I have this wake up at 2AM, or 3AM problem, and often have great difficulty falling back to sleep. I should change my handle to "the rambler". forgive my longwindedness.

I too shovelled snow for about one hour, then I nearly died. Had to lie down with heating pad across my back, and took some tylenol. Finally, about two hours later, I went out to do more. Along came an angel, a plow driver, a young fellow, saw our distress and moved the six ft. bank of heavy salt and ice laden snow from across the entrance to our driveway. Thank-goodness for angels. We needed to get out for water, our well water is a suspicious brown color, we bathe in it but don't drink it. Hoping everyone has energy and a painless day.
