Flaire I have ever had.
Last night or should I say this morning at 12:30 my body was cramped all over and I got out of bed and ran me a bath as I sat in the tub all I could do was cry. Today I opened the childcare and had 4 little ones whose diapers I had to change. With my thumb also hurting on my right hand I have been misarable. I did have Mitch find me my wrist brace which has helped a little, very little.
I feel like even my skin is to heavy for my body and if I could take it off I'd feel better.
Mitch went to rub my back this morning so he could get some attention and I almost begged him not to touch me. I feel guilty but I just hurt all over and I itch for no reason, like something is crawling on my neck and head but I know there's nothing there. I have been super grouchy that I don't even like myself, I don't know the children have dealt with me. I have 2 little boys that come to me in the afternoon and one of them came up and gave me a great big hug and kiss. It would have been great if it hadn't of hurt so bad but I didn't let him know. I even cooked dinner for 3 of childcare children and now am down to one who is laying down. She leaves at 11:30 pm. When she goes to sleep I can close my eyes.
I am so tired tonight.
I hope everyone else is having a better night. I know some of it is the weather and all I can think about is if I feel this bad with the weather cooling down now what am I going to like when true Fall sets in or even better Winter.

I've been feeling pretty much the same. Been tired all day and just want to lie down but that hurts also. Let's hope tomorrow is a better day :)

Hey Veronica, I hope you are feeling better and are getting the rest that you need. You work very hard and please always remember that you are giving love and attention to kids whose parents need to work. You are helping so many people and you are a special woman. I hope you get the healing rest you need and feel 1000% better on Wednesday!

I a single mom of beautiful 3 year old girl who loves to jump all over me. Her knees, feet and elbows have become like daggers. I used to be able to play with her freely. Now, I have to brace myself for impact. The pain is particularly bad tonight.

I've been having a bad flare too!!!
I've been organizing the entire house, so I've been on my feet running hither and thither.
It's exhausting ... especially compared to my last few months of couch potato life.
I'm starting to worry that I have the H1N1 flu :(

I am too also flaring!!! I must be something in the air!!! cry I went to the doc today (rhuemy) He said he is starting me on arava for the RA. and he still doesn't think i have Lupus. I guess that's ok. But he's is only one person. But what really bothers me is that the PA thought i did....He did say my ss-b was elevated i believe. He's not sure why shakehead he mentioned sjerion syndrome. (forgive my spelling) goes hand in hand with RA.
He did also say my Fibro is screamin.. so he upped my Lyrica to two 75mg a day.
Has anyone else had this ss-b elevation and been dx'd with something related to it? confused

I hate the unknown... it really bothers me. My mother was happier that a pig in XXX!! She is now thinking i do not have Lupus... I am still skeptical. rolleyes

Caring for children is hard work. I was an at home mom and I remember. Do you have a night time med, like a good muscle relaxer, that would help you start your day feeling better?
