I wanted this blog to be happy and display the funny things that go on in our lives. I also wanted to share my love for sewing, painting furniture, cooking and the frugal life we live.
I have been reading some of the Fibromyalgia Blogs and I feel like it may be a very good out let for the the frustrations of the flare ups. I will do my very best not to have a pity party for my self.
I have 3 siblings a brother and 2 sisters. 3 of us have Fibromyalgia, 3 of us have adrenal, thyroid, and Spinal Stenosis severe of the lower back. 1 of us is Bi Polar and we all have depression. ( By the way I am not the one with Bi Polar) I was spared that.
The last month has been a FLARE UP one of the worst in the last year. While Fibro is ever present as some of you know. It's gifts are not welcome.
I spend a lot of time alone. My sweet hubby works 12 hour shifts which makes him unavailable due to travel time and sleep. My daughter still lives at home. I don't know what I would do with out her. I don't want to be dependent on her. She teaches deaf children during the day and works several times a week with Special Needs children. She is very busy too. She takes care of our chickens, horses and dogs. She and her Dad do everything in their power to make sure that I am OK.
We have two boys the youngest has a Brain Injury lives on his own does well, but sometimes is demanding of our attention. Our other son lives in Dallas a good 24 hour drive away. he is a Federal Agent and is married to the best daughter in law ever. 4 ultra smart beautiful children. His wife is a type 1 Diabetic since she was 5.
I have 4 tiny little Poms none weighing over 4# that are my constant companions. They never leave me, If I am in bed they are in bed, if I am in my sewing room they are there also. I have a big beautiful Standard Poodle she is 80# and is with me constantly keeping watch.
My husband has done everything he thinks will help me and keep me busy. He bought me a big screen for our desk top computer, Ipod, Mac laptop, Cricket Cutter, tons of books on CD's, Ipad . All I really want is to be able to function through a full day,a week, a month. To be able to stand up long enough to cook and clean up, or walk through Walmart without needing a 4 hour nap. What a mess. I don't know what to do. Go to the Doctor? They dont know what to do. What is MISSING?????
