....you open your eyes and realize everything hurts before you even get out of bed.

When you DO get out of bed, the first thing that happens is you trip over your husband's shoes and bang your toe.

Then when your son asks for oatmeal and orange juice for breakfast, you get him cereal and fruit punch.

Then you look around your house and realize what a mess everything is and it makes you cry.

Then you look at the clock and realize it's only 8:15 in the morning and you know it's going to be a long, looooong day.

Danielle fix yourself a nice large mug of tea or coffee take something for the pain and give yourself an hour to relax without looking at the mess and then start your day over. I hate it when the day starts out on the wrong foot. I try to start my day the same as I end it in a relaxed state. Not easy now that I have two puppies chasing each other through the house as soon as I get up barking their heads off.
 
I'm trying not to look too closely at my house right now, I started some projects that got out of hand and I have every room in the house trashed, if I was to look at it as a whole I would cry too and it would never get put back together.

 Dear Sleepybug; You took the word's right out of my mouth...this is an everyday feeling for me.I know exactly what you are saying.My husband and I are "empty nester's "now,so i find it more difficult,because when i open my eye's in the morning, I know it is all on me...My children could help me some when i was first diagnosed with Fibro,C.F.S.,C.P.S. ETC..What i do is take my med's when i first wake(it varies,i am an insomniac also)Then i go back to bed and turn on the T.V.,find something uplifting to watch,usually The Price is Right.lol and try to get my mind to adjust for the day.I know that it is always going to be a very long day,and my mind tells me the house work will still be there tomorrow.Just do what you are able for the day.If you got up and fed your child ,that is something you accomplished,right? :-)  We are people who have to take it ,day by day,hour by hour ,minute by minute.I wish you peace and gentle hug's :)

Misty, please take your web site out of your signature.  That is against forum rules.  Thanks!

    Misty, I agree, there is a difference between a personal blog or homepage and your site which is a great web site, we just don't allow promotion of it in the forum. If you would like HW to link to it, please submit it to our resource directory.

    Thanks,

    Um..I think I missed something, lol. (Who is Misty?)

    Anyway. The rest of today didn't go much better. My husband and older son were gone to a game this morning, and my teenage daughter has a friend over and wasn't much help at all and my youngest is a bit too young (4) to be much help, either. I ended up cleaning the bathroom and dusting and unloading/loading the dishwasher. I figured the vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping could wait until hubby got home.

    When hubby got home, though, we had a bit of a tiff (he has this tendency to tell me he's going to do things when I ask, but then he doesn't actually get around to it. Today he did this and I just kind of blew my top about it..I mean-why can't he follow through? It makes me feel very unheard sometimes, which upsets me and makes me touchy. That's another thread, though) and our kids are off to their grandparents' house this afternoon and evening, so I sat down on the couch and ended up falling asleep (BAD IDEA lol) and when I woke up I realized I had been in a not so good position with my head propped up on my arm and now my arm hurts and the joint in my elbow is achy.

    So..ugh. Still not feeling so hot. Also feeling flush and achy, which means that flare I thought I'd missed during my stressful month is sneaking up on me. Boo hiss!!

    Unfortunately, yesterday was hubby and my anniversary and since we had too much going on with baseball and other things to celebrate, tonight was supposed to be our night (which is why the kids aren't here) but here I am feeling like dog doo doo :(

    Hopefully hubby doesn't mind a quiet night at home!

    Anyway...thank you for letting me vent and for being such great people :-)
    love and hugs

    My day began poorly as well and is rocketing downhill as fast as it can. I woke up tired and sore and a couple hours too early, and the whole day has been an out of sorts one. I got up and looked around at my messy house, and
    insensitive boyfriend (who normally isn't), and have now decided to go back to bed for a nap. Then I'm goiing to do nothing but fun, house be danged! Going to get some Thai takeout and watch some old favorite movies.

    You know it's going to be a bad day when you wake up with a crick in your neck AND a headache and have to go to work where they are smoking, which you have repeatedly told them is not ok due to lung problems caused by Fibro :(

    You step out of bed into a cold wet puppy puddle, or somehow, you glasses grow legs and walk themselves to the freezer (my son thinks that's hilarious), or you get woken by your phone, which is a bill collector LOL
