Maz..all my pain is on the right side...except for some shoulder-thing that I don't think has anything do do with fibro. I hump around like Quasimoto.  Now why.  Hmmm.

Mercury is retrograde all the time for fibromites.

Un beknownst (is that a word?) to us, we have been beamed up by the mothership and had one sided experiments performed on our bodies for research on the planet Bikmnuyllop.

We ate paint off the window sills as small children and followed the mosquito spray trucks on our bikes.

Our maxillary sacks and indomitral fistulas are underdeveloped and don't have enough optomagenisia to ward off double sided pain.

We were once forced to watch a two day LaVerne and Shirley marathon and sat hunched to one side.

Now, I am not a doctor, but these reasons are just as sane as some I have been given in the past.

Don't cry, Maz.  If you cry, I'll's contagious, you know.

I think what gets me the worst latly is the guilt , guilt for not being able to do things. I just feel so bad that my husband has to do everthing. Like this weekend . he was out cleaning the pool for our complex ( our 2nd job we used to do together ) and I'm feeling guilty.. so I start doing stuff around the house.. and YEP guess what .. I hurt myself yet AGAIN ,, my husband is so mush support to me. he just says .. why do you do it .. so I tell him . and his responce is .. STop it.. your talking crazy now. LOL and he makes me laugh it off.. yeah Boy am i blessed with him or what.

Hey Maz,

Sorry you are hurting. Today I am joining you for some crazy fibro flare time. All my
extremities are aching and burning, both my arms and legs believe in equal opportunity!

One good thing about these crazy flares is they don't last forever, they are just repeat

Feel better soon!

Maz...and others~~

I am another one who gets to the point of just sitting down and crying. Go ahead! This darn disorder is NOT fair and no one knows why we even have it. Some doctors don't even believe in it! Why shouldn't we cry now and then. If the pain isn't bad enough the damage to our lives and mental health totally messes with our lives. Its' just miserable.

The one thing I have to remember is not allowing myself to let the crying turn into feeling sorry for least for very long. For me it will spiral down and I sure don't ant that.

And about that talking to yourself??? Anyone here who does NOT talk to them self??? I'd bet we all do so just remind your hubby that at least you have a very attentive audience and always get intelligent

Gentle hugs,
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.

I have talked to myself for years!  I'm a great conversationalist, I enjoy the topics I discuss and can add to the conversation intelligently, and I never get in arguments with myself!  Hey, it works for me!  yeah
But, I do have to be careful when I'm out in public.  Because I'm severely hearing impaired, I will think I'm talking softly but actually others can hear me.  smhair    Ohhhh, some of the looks I've gotten.  Sorry.  I just have to laugh or I would cry, too!  turn
I hope you ladies will feel better soon.

I don't understand FM either. Some days my lower back is in such pain that all I can do is use the ho***er bottle and the next day it will be my upper back and then my neck. It sure knows no boundaries. As for talking to yourself, I do it all the time and I also have great conversations and sometimes as I do this I can figure out where things are that i have missplaced. So I guess if we help ourselves while talking to ourselves its okay.
Hope everyone has a better day. I know my day is better just being able to talk like this to people who understand.
