    Its 4:30 am (here in calif) and I just got up to go to work and the fatigue and pain is awful today, I don't know if I can make a full day at work urrrgggggg. just sitting here typing my hands are cramping and truthfully I'd love to peel the skin off my body and then go back to sleep.

    how many of yall's skin expecially your hands are sensitive to heat and cold during a flair up? I can't hardly pick up my coffee cup without burning my hand.

    please pray that I;m able to make it through the day.

    thanks a bunch for letting me be whiney to yall today.

    I HAVE HAD A PLACE RENTED ON THE LAKE FOR A WEEK BUT CAN'T GET UP THE ENERGY TO GO.

    QUESTION ARE YOU REALLY A FABRIC AHOLOIC? I AM AND MY MOM WAS TOO. WHEN SHE PASSED WE REMOVED 25 BANANA BOXES OF FABRIC FROM HER SEWING ROOM.

    No, you are not bit whiney. i feel the same way, due to no heating pad. I just fell alseep at the computer twice.
    I did not sleep well last night.

    Can you get some time off from work and just go home?
    Can you get tomorrow off?
    Can you make it easy on yourself when you get home?
    Can you just crash on the bed?
    Pain meds?
    Heating pad?
    Bath?
    Any supplements?

    Sorry, just throwing out some ideas to ease your mind over the flare-up.

    I took one moment at a time and lots of advil haha. took lots of breaks and it seemed that a turtle moved faster than I did. Then a lunch my daughter brought my 2 gramdbabies and I got loves and as always that make the emotional part a bit more barable. then I came home at 4pm and took a hot shower and my meds and went to bed.
    but other than that the day was okay.... yea right

    thanks for the concern

    Hi Hon,
    I am so sorry you feel bad, I wish you did not have to go to work at all. I hope you make it through the day! Get yourself rested up when you get home.

    Atiledsner: I am also a hopeless fabric aholic too! I absolutely love to sew quilts! I have more fabric than I could ever hope to sew up in my lifetime, haha! Do you make quilts? Or do you sew clothes? I sew a few clothes, a dress or pants suit here and there. There is nothing like the feel of a fresh bundle of fat quarters, hehe!
    Take Care!
