Apparently quite stupid.  Would you believe that the other morning I actually forgot to take my meds?  It's bad enough that I have been having a flair for the last month, I'm used to them and can cope well enought with that, but to forget my meds!  Two hrs after I got up I was already crashed on the couch, I didn't even realize until later in the day ( too late to take the forgotten meds)  that I hadn't taken them.  It has taken me 2 days to recover from such a stupid mistake.  I usually take my synthroid, put the rest of my meds and a glass of water by my cereal bowl, wait 30-60 minutes and then take the rest of my morning meds and have breakfast.  That day I forgot to put them on the table. Dumb! Dumb! Dumb!
 
On the other hand, my mother in law took pity on how badly I have been feeling and offered to have Christmas at her house this year. Yeah!  I finally get to really enjoy a Christmas for a change.  Usually I have it and have to do all the decorating, cooking, baking, cleaning, wrapping and everything else.  By the time I'm done, I'm too tired to enjoy the day.  Last year I actually had to go take a nap in the middle of the afternoon.
 
Wow.  This message is all over the place.  Sorry 'bout that.
Gentle hugs,

Hi Gamma,

I have done the same thing, many times. I keep them in a pillbox, but still manage to forget. Especially afternoon doses. So don't beat yourself up over it, I am sure the flare is doing that for you.

I am happy that you don't have to do all that Christmas work. We too are going somewhere for the holiday and that means a lot less work.

I hope that you start to feel better soon.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Thanks Karen,

I'm not always sure if it is the fibro or just old age. wink

Actually I could feel a lot worse, I've had fibro for so long that I have learned just what I need to do and what I need not to do in order to control the severity of the flair.  I'm sure it will be gone soon.


Gentle hugs,

Gamma, I have a terrible time remembering my vitamins and couldn't tell you the last time I took them all. I think it is a combo of age and fibro for some of us. I sure didn't forget about the box of Fanny May candy I got from the insurance co. as I ate the whole box last night.  devil
 
I have no idea who is having Christmas dinner this year but I do know it won't be me. We are having Christmas on the 20th for our family and if one of my sisters or niece doesn't volunteer to have it Christmas Day I will have dinner for two. My work for the year is over after Thanksgiving.
 
It is getting ready to rain here and I sure can feel it all over my body. At least most of the snow is gone we got Sun and Mon. So if your getting the same weather it's not helping you.
 
luv and hugs

Marlee,

We are having our Christmas with the kids on the 20th also. What a coincidence. You are lucky that your snow is gone, we have about two foot and going to get another foot before Friday.

I will soon be starting on that snow fort. Got to get myself to go out in the cold first. LOL...

Have a great day
Hugs, Karen

Hmmm...have you ever popped two valium in your mouth instead of Advil and not realized it until they were dissolving on your tongue with the water?  If I had have actually swallowed them, I would have been in near coma for the day.  Have you ever dragged a pair of underpants through a casino hanging from the leg of your jeans thinking the 'pressure' you felt was yet another Fibro symptom?  Or have you ever walked through Walmart with the tissue still in the toes of your new sneakers, then wondered why both of your legs were in spasm?  Oh, and my recent favorite...having a Hershey's kiss in one hand and a Liversnap in the other...tossing the dog the candy and chomping into the dog bisquit?  Now....THAT's STUPID! 

Don't beat yourself up for forgetting your meds...The casino camera probably caught me on tape and play it for each other everytime they wanna laugh!  STUPID!

Omg i was just thinking about the casino story, Sometimes I wear my jeans 2 times before washing them. Today I put on my jeans and low and behold there was a pair of panties hanging out the bottom, Yes they were dirty from the day before and I caught it before going out of the house, But did think of you..I did not take my medicine or vit/supplements last week and am paying for it this week.
I love to come on here and read the post sometimes I laugh so hard,
sometimes I can relate and sometimes I just ponder.
