I have been having really bad night sweats and sometimes day sweats but if I take a Tromadal then they go away. So I wonder if this is because the sweats are due to Fibro and not what a few friends are saying and that it's Menopause. Although I have not had my visitor for 2 and a half months.
I also am starting a Flaire again.
My uncle is back in the hospital for his cancer, he has thoart cancer. The children I watch have been really wild today and not wanting to listen so that's not helping. Luckly I have this weekend off. The weather is changing and my Arthtis is acting up in my right shoulder. 3 weeks ago my leg locked and I walked around with a cane for a couple of days. My grandson who is 6 has to go to a heart Dr because he has high blood pressure and needs to have a small sergery (SP) due to his tube in his ear slide back in his ear, but the Dr won't do it until he sees the other Dr.
Guess I have a lot on my plate and I have 12 baby chicks in my spare bedroom and need to finish the Coop and one of my parent's checks bounced and I'm not sure I will see the money and I really needed it to finish the Coop and to finish paying for my high school prgram which I just graduated from it.
I'm just overwhelmed I guess and yes the bad things for us I am STRESSED OUT. Tomorrow I will sleep all day like every Sat.
Sorry so long.

Wow Roni!

No wonder you are miserable. That's a huge load you have right now. I do hope you get some good, quality rest tomorrow. I too have sweats and it's not from menopause. I take hormones and they take care of that stuff. But for no reason I will start sweating like crazy, then it will stop as quick as it came. The problem I have is I am diabetic on insulin and when I sweat it could be low blood sugars(insulin shock). So I have to go test my sugars to make sure which one it I know it's not funny but I might as well laugh.

I'm looking at all of the things you have that are stressers. Which of them are ones you can do something about? Maybe the chicken coop? Can you get some help?

The money deal...that will come when it comes and the people you need to pay will get it once you have it. Not much else you can do unless you want to lean on those who owe you. Call the high school program and explain to them. Maybe you can send $5 or $10 in good faith and most often folks will accept that and not keep bugging you. It shows you are trying your best and not dodging them. We all have money issues now and doesn't matter who we are or how much money we have. One thing I realized many years's something my dad told me. He said that having more money doesn't necessarily solve the problem of having bills you can't pay. Rich people are broke or behind, just at a higher level. lol... I think that's good advice. In the long run those items are "the small stuff" even though it doesn't seem like it. But you are talking to someone who has had to sell 2 homes so the bank wouldn't take them, used to collect returnable pop bottles to get money for milk for my babies, and had strangers leave sacks of food on my porch when I was gone. Life is different now but most of us have taken our turn.

We're here for you Roni! Always feel free to email me if you just want to chat...OK?

Hi Roni,

I wonder if you are sweating because you need the tramadol? Just because you said when you take it the sweats go away. I think that was what you said. Maybe you have a dependance to it. I don't know if it is a narcotic or not, I don't think it is, but you still could be dependant on it. Just a thought.

Yes you sure do have a lot on your plate. I am glad that you are taking this day to rest. I hope that it makes you feel better. I am thinking about a nap right now too. lol...

I hope that you have a good day. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.

Hugs, Karen

Well so much for taking a rest today. I ended up at the hospital this morning. I got up out of bed and walked a couple of feet from my bed and passed out.
The Dr took all kinds of blood work and nothing came back. I got a clean bill of health from him and he was confussed about what happened.

After I got home my little sister called to let me know more on my uncle, he was supposed to have surgery from what she was told last night but my mom told me today that has changed because he is to weak. My sister also told me that my neice has cervical cancer. My aunt who is here from WY called tonight to talk to me about my uncle and let me know that he's terminal and has refused any treatments.

The mom whose check bounced will be giving me the money on Monday. I only have to pay alittle bit for High School program.

Chutz I don't take the tramodal enough I don't think to be addicted to it. I only take it when I can't stand the pain or myself. Whcih wasn't to bad this winter most of the time but now that the weather has changed and stress has gone from almost none to way to much that's going to change.

But I have noticed that when I'm having hot flashes my temp goes up. It's like my body is fighting itself. And then when temp goes down I have chills.

I did pick up some over the counter herbal menopause meds. Hopefully it helps.


One of my children's dad has made a frame for the coop so all Mitch and I have to do is get the wood and he'll help us finish it.
