I had every intention of picking one store, but after all the cooking, eating, and family, I just fizzled out. I'm in the middle of a flare too, so my joints were begging me not to do it lol!

Well, if u went and u survived, tell us how u did it...maybe I can live vicariously :P

Made it to Wally World. It wasn't too crazy or crowded. I picked up some necessities for the weekend and was out in less than an hour.
I pushed my empty buggy past one man and he remarked on how empty it was. :))

wanted to go so bad this has always been the holiday for the strong. Guess that's why I did not go this year.Brain said do it Body said lay down and hush up. was diagnosed two months ago. First Rhumy appt. Today. When they did the biopsy seems like all the symptoms got worse. Did anyone else experience this? beginning to think knowing what is wrong made me slow way down.

Healingwithin, you will feel better after you get the medication going for awhile.
I didn't really feel better until I was on my medicine for three months.

You'll soon learn when to rest and when to go. I drug around for months until the medicine kicked in fully.

Hi jesimae,

I did most of my black friday shopping online. I did go late morning after all the crazy crowds were gone, I just bought two things though as I made all my major buys online. It wasnt too bad and if a store had too many people in it I just didnt go in.

I hope you feel better. I think I am in the midst of a flare myself as my lymph nodes are swollen and in pain, Im more fatigued than usual and my knees and foot hurts for no reason. I am starting to think this Plaquinel isnt working after all.

Thank you couchtater that's what I have been told hope it works. Because I was not thrilled with my Rhumy at all. she was yelling at the patient before me and got frustrated with me because I guess it was taking me awhile to get out what had been going on with me. But she put me on the plaqunil guess time will tell. she didn't even do an actual exam is this normal. Sorry new at this. I know the post is suppose to b about black Friday sorry all

I had an Internet Black Friday..warm, cozy, safe, in my pajamas with hot chocolate! Never, ever did the real thing, and especially can't imagine trying now. I'd be in bed for a couple of days, definitely!
