    Hi there, and I'm glad to meet you!

    My ailments include Fibro, depression, anemia, and miscellaneous nuisances. Ain't it fun?

    I'll be looking for your posts. You seem like a lot of fun!

    Yes, you keep warm too. That is not a big problem for me, I live in Louisiana and its 85 degrees around here right now :). Even the dog is complaining about the heat.

    But last winter we had 20" of snow! Oh boy, that was a shock to me, we rarely have weather that is that cold! I just had to go outside and play in it, and got bronchial asthma! Wow, was I sick. I will not go play in snow again, should it happen around here, this is only the third time in my life that I had seen snow like this, we usually have mild winters!

    But I do keep the a/c down pretty low, I need the heating pad, and so I keep it pretty cool in the house so I can use it.

    Don't worry about the caps, I can read it and I am sure everyone else can too. We all do strange things at times around here. Its to be expected anyway...

    If I can help you, just let me know. That is what we are here for, to help one another, and if nothing else support each other.

    You are always welcome here, this is 'home' to so many of us with these terrible illnesses.

    Take care of yourself, and get as much rest as you can.


    Shalom, Shirl

    We really do have to make allowances for each other, don't we? I have a hard time remembering Usernames and I'm never sure if I met one of you before or not! Haha!

    I do know Shirl now though, and AuntTammie too. And I think I'll remember PacoTaco, that's such a cute name!

    I haven't been on here too long myself, a few months. I'm learning my away around and today posted on the ChitChat board. There's some fun stuff going on over there. Hope you get a chance to visit there.

    It's cold here today and a Northeaster moving in. Tomorrow a high of 43 degrees and rain! The worst possible Fibro weather. Ugh! No use complaining. I'm inside and warm. God is good.

    Take care everyone and stay as comfortable as possible.

    Hugs,
    Fay

    You are not the only one that has problems remembering names, so do I. Being a moderator, I am going through posts/people sometimes at high speed, and will forget who I am answering (as high as my speed will go:).

    Then I have to go back and check who I am writing too. But it works out anyway. Sometimes the names will stay in the back of my mind somewhere, and when I see them they come forward!

    I think we all do that. Then all of a sudden the 'light bulb' goes off, and I say; 'Oh yea' I remember her/him!'

    I used to write names down on a tablet by the computer, but I found myself with seven or eight tablets, and that made things more confusion, so I quit doing that one.

    Sorry you are having cold weather, I know that is hard, although it does not get too cold here, but we do have some terrible dampness in the winter, and a lot of humidity in the summer. One is bad as the other.


    But you ladies that live where it snows, that I can't deal with! That is really cold!

    Keep warm, stay indoors if you can.


    Shalom, Shirl

    I am as ok as possible....just spent too much time writing a statement for the upcoming CFSAC meeting and am really feeling it today (pain and exhaustion, and all the fun typical flare up symptoms)...but I think it was worth it - felt good to be able to maybe make my voice heard a little and hopefully make a difference....anyway, thanks for asking, and like I said, I am glad to see you are back

    It's good to see you. Sorry to hear you're still suffering so much. I completely relate. I remember you and your wonderful name. It has such a happy ring to it. :)

    These are exciting days for us right now. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope they've found some answers for us finally.

    Hi I am Meme. I am new here. I am looking I guess just for some compassion. My family has none, but I guess it is my fault. I try to be normal and do what needs to be done.I go to the nursing home to tke care of my mom and help out in my granddaughters school and I am married and keep house, cook and try to take care of my yard. I have bad days like today of depression. My pain dr which just gave me three injections said he is trying to keep me out of a wheel chair, and I turn to a mesage board for someone to listen. How sad huh? I hope we talk again meme

    how are u today?? Truely hope that your not in too much pain or more than you can handle. Is it possible to handle such indiscribible pain?? I still have a hard time here,have you had days on end when your fingers hurt ,arm,elbows,shoulders n shoulder blades hurt so bad that you can't pick up your pillow? bet you have..well these types of days are here n i can't seem to help myself.Is there something that you do for yourself that helps? it makes it so hard to sleep for me,i have to sleep only on my right cuz my discs in my back make it impossible to sleep on my left,n it is my right that this happens to so just to press my shoulder on my bed is excruciating pain! i have not slept well in 5 days.if you have any helpful hints,i will give you a thousand gold coins!!!! I would if I had them....lol!!!!take care Shirl......

    This is the perfect place to come for compassion!!! we all have it for one another. I am so sorry you are having troubles! What a awful time for us huh...no cure for us in sight,all we can do is to figure out what to do for ourselves n share it with the others,plus the meds they give us,an we need to be careful with that also because of our kidneys n liver!! a big cycle isnt it....well if I my ever be able to help you,please know i am so willing to do so......have a blessed week n see ya here!!!!!

    Hi Aunt Tammie, how are you doing these days?? Hopefully the pain your having is not too unbearable for you. I dont just assume that your in pain,it is just I know that I always have much pain,so i know you do also. Hate to be right on this subject!! We all have pain,the question is,how high is our pain level for the day or week,so hope your level is low.....I just know that sometime this feels like a "thing" we are all going through an it is going to go away soon enough. It seems so awful to kinow that this is what we are to be for the rest of our lives. It is said that people who were busy busy buisy, are now afflicted as we are because "it" has caught up with us n affected our nervous system. HMMMMM...well all I know is,that it seems to be a big ? . still have a hard time figureing this illness out.but.....i went off the subject of how your pain is today. have you been able to relax mentally an physically with peace in your life? I sure hope so.....I wish for you to have a wonderful week....take care...

    Hope that you are feeling the best possible today. The word I use,"painpals", fits the board made up of FM/CF patients who converse back n forth by posting eachother. Penpals are people who write on paper to eachother,we type it out so we are one anothers painpals,we are all in pain,and have become pals,but the use of the word is my way of saying hello to everyone n to let them all know that I know the pain that is suffered here ,makes it for a more "Family" feeling......take care.....painpal...lol,funny yes it can be....
