How is everyone these days? Constant Flare?

Since the weather got cold everything got worst & doesnt take much to flare. Cant seem to recover from the last flare... around 3 weeks ago i was in a flare & took a few days to get some relief. Then almost 2 weeks ago I over did it so was miserable. When I flare I usually get an awful headache & always sick, not to mention exhaustion, pain & so uncomfortable. Just seems like I cant recover... I try not to take plain mess unless I have no choice, but have to so I can move around & not be such a trump with my family. Patience has been hard & with 4 kids I have to have it. I think my husband thinks ive just been lazy. Its a struggle to make dinner & minor cleaning. Ive been reading my Kindle allot so my husband is irritated. But I need rest & feel like the little bit I am doing is still to much...
So, I'm curious how everyone else is doing? How are you coping?

Re: How is everyone these days? Constant Flare?

Our weather has been unseasonably warm, so it only gets to me when it goes from +10 oC to -15 oC one day to the next. The holidays have put me in a flare for 2 weeks now and I see no end in sight, as my sinus' have decided to join in the fun. Whoo. Thankfully my SO has been pitching in a lot more to pick up my slack, which I am very thankful for.
I'm sorry he's been irritated with you. I'm still of the opinion you should smack him up the head, but it probably won't get you anywhere. Hopefully he will see that it's not something you can control and that you need to listen to your body more than him. ((((((hugs)))))) Rest a lot, and get better because you can't be the strong mother/lover/wife/individual that you are when you are sick.
We are all here for you and will support you!

Re: How is everyone these days? Constant Flare?

Hey, Tori!! I am having a huge flare that just won't stop, too! I ended up in the ER on New Years Day with the flare plus endometriosis. This time I went to the ER at the hospital where I work. They were actually very kind and respectful. AND completely addressed my pain, if u can believe that. They gave me IV meds that are much stronger than what I take at home and it worked. It was almost embarrassing, I was just about in hysterics by the time I reached the ER. I was shaking so hard that I could hardly sign my name. My hubby was awesome. He was ready to handle anyone who was mean to me. I am glad that he did not have to do that. I am ok now, though. Back to the "usual" pain, LOL.

I really over did it during the holidays and am ready for a break. I am sorry that you are flaring, too. Don't know how you do it, with the kids and all. Wish your hubby was more supportive.

Re: How is everyone these days? Constant Flare?

Thanx everyone
My husband has slowly gotten better, he just still doesn't quite get it. I think he focuses to much on what we don't have than what we do. I'm basically a drag since I never feel well. The bank screwed up when we refinanced last summer, they didn't include enough in our mortgage payment to cover all taxes & insurance so we have to pay alittle more than $300 more each month for a year then an extra $150 after that. Ugh As if trying to keep people in the rental & get rent $ out of them isn't hard enough... So my husband makes comments on me making $. I sell stuff online which helps but its still so much work & have a hard time doing it. I feel guilty cause I don't contribute much financially.
The last few months I just hurt & exhausted all the time. Then when I'm having a ok day I manage to over do it so make myself miserable. I know people work with FM but how? I was able to before the FM got bad, but not now. I know even working one day a week would cause a major flare & I'm a absolutely worthless when that happens...
