This past weekend was the worst I have ever had a flare, woke up on Saturday at 3 am needed the bathroom but could not move just layed there crying as the pain was horrible. Had to wake up hubby and (all know how wonderfully they are if you wake them up don't we), he looked at me and said I can't pee for you so what do you want me to do, he finally got up got me a heating pad , my meds and rubbed some tydenol precise pain relieving cream all over my back. I had to use a walker all day that is when I got out of bed. Sunday he wakes up and looks at me and says I guess your not going to help build the deck today , the only thing that ran though my mind was DUR. What the hell was he thinking.Finally the rain came Sunday night and that gave me a bit of relief, still in pain but at least I can get out of bed today. Sorry went on a rant again I apolagis
the barometric pressure affects us in adverse ways. you will learn to live by the weather, giggle, i know i have.
men are men and you picked him. perhaps a chat about it will help? no they do not wake up well do they? giggle. i'm single but i remember. had to laugh at the dur!
hang tough girl. they pass, we live, we laugh, we love and it comes again, just in case we forgot we had it. giggle.

Do not apologise for ranting, I love to read other people ranting it makes me feel normal when I do it. I know were I would have told him to shove his deck, lol, sometimes you feel that people do not listen, you think that our nearest and dearest would understand at this stage what fibro is all about.
Lol I don't think you were ranting... Atleast not my idea of a rant lol I know how hard it is for you. We are both going through the same husband issues. Wish they had a clue. Like Agenda said, you would think the ones closest to us would understand the most...
The garden & yard sale really kicked my but. Sunday I was at the end of my rope, exhausted. But Monday hubby kept telling me to get off my but & go to the shop to pack stuff up. Kinda embarrassing in front of a new friend. Our husbands have been friends for about a year & we just started hanging out. I did take my meds & finally got moving. Luckily my new friend & my best friend helped us so it wasn't as much work...
Today I'm beyond exhausted, hurt & sick. Tramadol has done nothing for me today. My husband made me down half his energy drink. For some reason he thinks those will actually work on me & never do. He doesn't understand that I need time & rest... Lol now that's a rant!
I wish I had advice to help you but don't... Do you find that your fibro just gets worst instead of better? Seems like it to me. Every once in awhile there is a break where you can live somewhat normal, but doesn't happen often & like right now for me, pay for it later...
Hubby wants me to start more seeds today... Not gonna happen
Hello. I'm new here and you have the first post that I read. It's so hard when family or friends do not understand the pain. It's easy to feel a little lost. It makes it easier knowing someone understands but it's awful that anyone has to deal with this. I hope things get better and you have many "good" days.
