    Hi Cherl

    Yes, it does happen.  Fibro is a painful condition and it's not so easy controlling the pain.

    Gentle Hugs and hope you have a better night tonight. biggrin x

      Hi Cherl

      I'm just waiting to get A good night sleep.  Haven't had one in over 20 years due to the pains.  But I am patient and learning the breathing techniques, so hopefully soon I can report on a good night sleep. biggrin

      Hi their Bee your not alone their i havent slept through the night in over 25 years i oftenget by on just 1 hours sleep a night due to pain, because your body relaxes and then more pain seeps in so what i have been doing know is trying to push myself to the max during the day so im so tired and now i tend to take extra pain relife at night and i find in the last month i know get 3 hours good sleep a night, so i wish you well if you do start getting better nights let me know and ill give it a go all the best

      Hi Cherl

      I agree when it comes to getting things done. Best to do it oneself. Husbands do tend to cut very large corners when it comes to them doing things that is not their norm.

      Try and break up the jobs in the day with taking a break even if it is for 10 mins between the jobs.

      My hands used to swell up really badly in my early stages of my pains and my hands used to freeze while peeling vegetables. I used to find holding a pen very painful too.  We just have to train ourselves to live a mans life once in a while a tackle one thing at a time ! wink

      Soo glad the pain is back under control Cherl...there's nothing worse..for sure...just arrived home, we went out for lunch...I guess I've had this for soo many years...I can cope well enough at times..lunch out was lovely. Then when we arrived home there was a dosen long stemmed red roses at the door....feeling a bit  blessed here...... daughter and son-in-law bought them, because we looked after grandson for 2 nights, (2 1/2 yr old and very good) while they flew to the mainland  and on business...it was already a blessing having him..then viola double blessing...have a lovely day...and hope the breathing technique is giving you some quality sleep..it was just reveloutionary for me...be blessed Cherl...:-) xx
