Thanks for the chuckle, James! And you are absolutely right, any cutlery is better than none. As Picasso said, when I don't have red, I use blue.
I'm sorry you are dealing with Fibro as well. It's a double whammy that complicates and aggravates whatever else you are trying to cope with. I tried Nortriptyline (sp?) and Neurontin for Fibro - neither did me any good. The best fibro "medicine" for me was regular exercise. A herniated disc put a wrench in that and then as I was trying to get back on my feet, the connective tissue/RA stuff started in. So that "Rx" is very hard to come by these days. I try to get a walk in, but if the pain doesn't act up the fatigue takes over. You know, right?
Recently experimented with exercising in a pool - but found it was too exhausting to do the whole showering, toweling dry, changing,etc. after mild exercise in the water. Put me out for another week. Plan B. Or F. Whatever.
Best of luck with the meds and I hope you get an extension on that break in the cycle. I should confess I only tried the Nortriptyline for a week or so. Gave me nightmares, and I was started on it to improve my sleep.....
