    Well after yesterdays stress which continued after I posted yesterday evening,Im still here(smile).
    I have a daughter in her twenties and she had an incident at work whereby her rights were violated.So as a mother I am naturally upset and trying to figure just what route to take on this.It is definately a legal matter.Then as I tried to explain to my boyfriend (who is by the way from another planet)all that went on while he was at work,as always he didn't agree with how I handled things.So we had a big blowout.You see my boyfriend is one of those who if you don't handle things the way he would then you are wrong.
    Anyway,I am not at all in pain today.I think I cried so much yesterday that I must've went into a deep sleep last night.My eyes were pretty crusted this morning which is not the norm.lol----Only thing is I feel kinda depressed , think I'll go down by the water and sit.It is beautiful outside.

    im sorry to hear about your daughters situation. definatly seek legal help!! i think all men want things handled their way or no way! my b/f is the same way. and fighting is so exausting for us. what a way to catch a good nights sleep though lol. its good that you are not in pain because pain and stress is a toxic combo...do you write poetry often? i used to write alot when i was younger. the weather here is nice too (pa) finally warmth!! anyways if you need someone to chat gimme a post..im at work so i'll be checking often. <3 Rachel

    So sorry about your daughter ... sounds like you have had a rough time. I hope your daughter is ok? My Dad is just like your B/F (a guy thing maybe?). SOunds like enjoying a beautiful spring day may be helpful.

    Thanks Dreamer,and yes I write,well kinda often.It depends,I can be watching TV, driving, cooking ,even alseep sometime and the words of a poems start running thru my mind.Crazy right?? But honest thats how they come.First one line then the next.If I try to push passed it in my head I can't,not until I write it all down.I write stories too,most never got finished,but oddly enough the stories come in dream form.In the dreams I am usually the main character.I don't see myself,but I am viewing everything thru the eyes of the main character.Hmmm,I wonder if other writers experience similar things? Do you write?

    i used to write a lot of poetry when i was younger. i remember in middle school my favorite class was creative writing! i used to have notebooks full of poems. i know what you mean about doing things because i'll be doing something and a sentance will run through my head but i dont write anything down. does it help your stress level? i imagine it must..getting your thoughts out. i think my poems would be about anger and pain since thats what im experiencing with fibro. i rarley remember my dreams. i'm sure writers get inspiration from all sorts of things! do you work? maybe you could write a book! that would be a good accomplishment. but if your fibro is as bad as mine it may take a while lol. the only thing i wrote was a list of my meds i have been on for my doc appt on monday. my hand was killing me though lol...i've tried a lot of meds! anything that helps your pain? <3 Rachel

    I ACTUALLY STARTED WRITING POETRY IN THE 5TH GRADE.AND I WON 2ND PLACE IN AN ESSAY CONTEST ON HOW TO MAKE OUR CITY BETTER.I HAVE AT PRESENT 123 POEMS AND EVEN SOME THAT I CONSIDERED FOR GREETING CARDS,BIRTHDAY AND APOLOGIES,THAT SORT OF STUFF.
    NOW AS FOR WHAT I USE FOR PAIN.I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING THAT I CAN USE ON A REGULAR BASIS.I HAVE DEVELOPED ALLERGIES TO MOST PAIN MEDS.SO I AM IN ALOT OF PAIN MOST OF THE TIME.WHEN IT IS UNBEARABLE I TAKE 4 IBUPROFEN EVERY 6 HOURS JUST TO TAKE EDGE OFF.THEN A DAY OR TWO LATER I HAVE UGLY RED HIVES ON ONE SIDE OF MY NECK AND RED BLISTERY LOOKING BUMPS USUALLY ON MY FACE AND FORE ARM.MY DOCTOR IS STUCK ON STUPID WITH THE IDEA OF SLEEP AND EXERCISE I'LL BE PAIN FREE.IT IS SO FRUSTRATING,I AM GONNA MAKE AN APPT. TO SEE IF SHE WILL DO ALL THE BLOODWORK THAT HASN;T BEEN DONE AND FIND JUST WHAT IS GOING ON.

    thats great about the poems! you should look into getting something published. thats very unfortunate that you cant take anything but otc meds for the pain. sometimes it is so unbearable. the rhuemy i was seeing was all about getting sleep and excersise...im like look im in too much pain i can barley work what makes you think i would go back out after work to excersise!!?? definatly get blood work b/c theres a lot of other conditions related to fibro. i just got blood tests and my arm still hurts...but everything is normal which is good. what type of doc are you seeing? im going to see a pain specialist on monday. so hopefuly he will help more than my family doc who gave me darvocets which dont touch my pain. anyways im just about finished work now so if i dont get back to you, i'll try to check in this weekend and if not i'll check on monday. if i dont talk to you i wish you a painfree weekend and a good one! write some poems! :)
