Does anyone get so tired that it's hard to even talk?
Lately I find myself becoming extremely short and crabby too.  Not like me at all.  Makes me sad.  Is this normal?

When I'm flaring, I have trouble talking.  I'm just too tired and hurty.  Its far too much to even expect when I can barely breathe let alone talk!  So, I hear you.  Is it normal?  Who knows?  When you feel like an animal about to slink off into the woods to die, who wants to talk?  I just try to remember that the flare will end eventually and I'll get back to talking and being a part of the "normal" world.  Hang in there---this too shall pass.

My husband constantly tells me I am mumbling. It is like I can't take a deep enough breath to speak in a louder voice when I am hurting. Does that make sense?

Hope you feel better!

Funny you should mention breathing - I've NEVER felt like I breathe deeply enough. When I was a kid, my mom used to tell me my voice didn't sound full, that I should "speak from the diaphragm," and my flute teacher fired me for basically the same reason. Taking a breath before I talk or sing is something I always have to remind myself to do. Then, breathing out is the same way. I wonder if this makes for some problems such as fibro?

I found with the dr drugs I had severely slurred speech quite often. When I took extra painkillers it got worse, especially mixing
darvacet with flexoril. I had times I could barely drive to work and at 4 in the morning that isn't good.

Nana, darvocet and fiorinol did that to me, I more or less missed last Thanksgiving at my house none-the-less by mixing those 2.  When I did that I was "too tired to talk"  not good with 19 people here. Hubby was really mad.
