I had gone to lunch with my gf, she's a CNA but doesn't quite understand the whole fibro omg the pain thing, well didn't. When I arrived, she hugged me, I was having a few bad cramps and spasms in my back that day but wanted out of the house, when she hugged me she felt the knotted muscles, so I spent lunch answering her questions and we agreed that twice a month she'll come to my house and help me with the harder chores, if I'll babysit that night so she can go out or sleep or do whatever she wants LOL Her son, my god son is 11 moz old, so he's lighter and he loves to play with his Wowa (godkids call me Lola) and my son, Oom.

Hey Hey Mrs C

Good deal!! I really believe in sharing resposibilities with friend .. Its great that your friend is going to help out!!! Sounds like the kid is really cute!!!

Sorry you were all tied up in knots.. that's a horrible feeling, I get that a lot and its one of the many fibro gifts that I'd be happy to live without!!!

Hello Mrs C,

What a great idea!!!! WE barter a lot in our company with real great rewards but I don't much on a personal scale.

You gave me a good idea as I have a friend that I think something might work out!!

thanks for the thought,

That is a great idea. I wish I could find someone to come and help with the heavy cleaning in exchange for something that is easier for me to do. My niece was helping out when she could but she has taken on more work and has too much on her plate as it is.
luv and hugs
