I'm having one of those why me, why am I punished with this and am never "normal" anymore moments.  I really try very hard not to have the "why me" attitude, but there are just times when it creeps in.  Had to go downtown with hubby today to take care of a few things and had to be dropped off at the front of the building because my legs just didn't feel like they were going to carry me very far today.  How I long for the days when I use to say:  I never feel bad, I never get sick.  Boy are those days long gone and how I took them for granted.  Tonight my shoulders are aching as well as my neck and I am just having to take it easy while I have a laundry list of things around the house I need to be getting done.  I'm also worrying about some other health issues I am having that I keep putting off going to Dr. about.  I just dread going because I don't want to be tested for everything under the sun, but such as life, gotta put on the big girl pants and do what needs to be done.  I just get so tired of feeling like I am at odds with everything all of the time.  Gee, I just read over what I have written, I sound like such a wimp tonight.  Anyway, thank you all so much for letting me vent.  Hopefully tomorrow I will feel better and hubby will help me out with a few things.  I have faith in that.  Soft hugs to all of you.

I sure hope things get better for you. I can surely sympathize as the last couple of days have been hell for me too. The bakers
cyst is pushing on the sciatic and all the other nerves in my leg so that I can barely drive without writhing in pain. Of course, I've
done that too...looks kinda funny driving down the road making faces and howling. I've put off going to the drs because of the
price, I just can't afford it and I'm so dang tired of getting sliced open. Last time I asked if they could just install zippers to
make it easier on me. I found a couple of more tumors (lypoma) and it's so frustrating.

Aww I know completely how you feel. I am only 21 years old and lately I feel like I'm at least 80. My life is not the same anymore, and it hurts. I feel all I do is sleep and work. And work is killing me, I only do it because I would be homeless otherwise. I'm currently out of school because I just couldn't do it anymore, and I feel like I'm going nowhere with my life. I hurt more then ever, and I have never ever been so exhausted, not even when I had mono. I know what it's like. Our lives never will be the same. But all we can do is make the best out of what we have now. We have to keep pressing on, and hope that someday, we will find something that will truly help us out!

It is normal to have a why me moment. The trick is not letting the moment turn into days or weeks.
Living and learning to cope with fibro takes time and practice. Pain is difficult to get used to. The
meds take the edge off the pain but finding ways to distract from pain is individual. There are days
I feel pretty good and I'm so appreciative. I really took my health for granted before all this.

Libby you are not a wimp, you are hurting and it feels good to vent. Sending gentle hugs to all
and wishing pain-free days ahead.
