    Hey everbody! Hope you're having a joyful day today. Please do one thing for yourself today.

    I miss "chatting" with my friends here and I hope everyone is alright. I know we all have pain and fatigue,and I just wanted to share how I'm dealing with mine.

    I updated my profile which I think explains almost everything. I've gone back to work full-time after having to take a medical leave in August. I have worked the closest thing to my 40 hr wk, this wk, since May of this year. I made it to 39 hrs this week. Yeahhhh! Money, money, money (lol).

    My husband jokes with me and says my co-workers are getting rich taking bets on whether or not I'll call off, and which day. I don't take offense to it, I just laugh with him. My dh tries to understand me, but we all know how that goes. He does support me, emotionally, physically, and financially. I always say my money's home ooops, I mean my honey's home (haahahahaha). See paybacks for smarty remarks can be fun.

    Anywho, I'm okay today and hope all my dear friends get through today ok too. I love y'all and miss you. I drop in on the chat line a couple of times a week at night, so hope to talk to you there.

    Gotta go, don't want to be late for work.

    Lots of luv,
    Charlotte

    It's kinda rough getting there, but I enjoy it once I get started into my day. I really like socializing. My job is a one-on-one deal and I do like the people I meet. Thanks for the well wishes

    Butzie,

    It is great to be able to work. Sometimes I do push myself hard. I guess it's because my father pushed us to work as kids. There were 5 of us and my dad had a large farm. Some folks don't understand what manual labor is about. In my opinion the work I do in retail is a picnic compared to farm work. I do love my job and hope I can continue.

    I think my father taught me endurance. Sometimes I thought I would never live through the day when I was a child working hard, but I did. So I push, and push a little harder, it hasn't killed me. Yes endurance is a good thing, but I guess fibro can smack that down too sometimes.

    I just have the attitude that I will not go down without a fight (lol). Have a great day, butzie and thanks for you reply.

    its good to hear that you feel well enough to go back to work. I really miss working. It does help to get out of the house and socialize. Just take care not to overdo things though.

    hugs,
