I usually take turns checking on them, and I emailed Antbuggy a couple of days a go, and she sent me back a reply that she is suffering a frbro flair at this time complete with the fog.

So, yes, she could use some uplifting prayers too.

Both of these sisters have been through the ringer as of late.

Our thoughts and prayers are with them both.

   I will get my group to include them in prayers. Shannon has had a hard time no doubt. She is such a loving soul I hope things slow down for her. She has been through so very much.

Hello again to all my amazing friends/family! I am sorry I have been so absent! Going through a lot and trying to learn to accept that this is my life now! Do not seem to be getting much pain relief anymore, again, and have been dealing with some serious fibro fog! I have done some serious things because of the sending a $140.00 ring to my daughter in Colorado, and concentrating really hard to get the address right, and still getting it wrong! Then I also almost left my nephew at the store....waiting for me to pay for the candy bar, I promised him....I paid for my stuff and in the car and started it....thank goodness Shannon was in the car and asked where Justin was! These are just a couple of the spacey things I have done lately and It is scary...I used to pride myself on my intelligence and ability to concentrate under pressure....I dispatched for the Colorado State Patrol...and was darn good at it!! I feel like a bumbling idiot most the time anymore....a crippled bumbling idiot! I really hate to be a whiner and I try really hard to work through things on my that is what I have been doing! I do really miss you all and feel bad that I have not welcomed the new friends to the group! I have been told many times by my dear friend, Mikel, not to isolate....but I still do! I just feel like I need to work through it on my own and then share with others!! Plus....I have to worry about my sis on top of everything else!!

Thank you Suzanne, SE, Dani and are all amazing people and friends!

I miss you all very much! Hopefully, we will be back real soon!!

Take care of you....all of you!

I can really relate to your confusion and feeling like an idiot.  I too, feel this way very often and most times, I have just learned to laugh at it, but deep down inside, sometimes I feel like an invalid, depending on others, for instance, to drive me places.
I too, used to run a big home health agency and was under the gun and on the ball.  I had to be.  Now, I can't even believe I did all that during my working years.  Sometimes, I feel so foolish, girl.  I know how you feel, believe me. 
I forget people's names and it is so embarrassing for me.  I went to my seven year old's birthday party this weekend and I ended up talking to her babysitter who used to be over nearly every day and I had to ask her what her name was.  I was embarrassed and she was shocked.
Oh well, we just do the best that we can.  But please know that you are not alone.
God bless.

Hi Antbuggy. It's good to see you post. I'm sorry that you're in so much pain these days. Like Mikel says, you don't need to isolate. I tried that back a few months ago, and I didn't like it. I had to come back to where I could get some support and love from my family here. Please keep us updated on how you're doing, and tell you sister we're thinking of her too. Take care. I hope you're having a low pain night.

love and hugs
