If you're that tired, go to bed. Who cares what time of day it is. I frequently go back to bed, rarely actually sleep though. >:(

I took my pills earlier last night, like the consultant suggested and ended up being awake at 3.40am! Slept on and off til I had to get up at 7am but, as ever, tired for yet another day. *sigh*

Hi zeb, I collected Sophie's ashes, they do them different now, I asked for a scatter box, as I knew like all my other dogs I would be scattering them eventually, but they are in a small tube now looks just one of those posh watch boxes or perfume tubes boxes, it's one you can stand on your dressing table and one one would be any the wiser, ...anyway she is home now, and of course my tears started to flow again, but I'm doing ok,...the bus driver both ways must have heard what I said, cos they dropped the step down and even waited till I sat down lol...popped into my friend whose is registered blind on way back, so by the tie I got back I didn't get to get any zzzzzzz's or see any fluffy clouds lol, so I guess I'm gonna give it a try shortly lol, gonna have a nice cup of warm milk I first, would you like some, do you take sugar, and would you like a couple of ginger bickies to go with it....lol they'll be carting me off to the mad house shortly lol gentle hugs to you....Dee xx

aw! milk n bickies thanks Dee :)

Morning Gins

Sorry you are feeling so rough. I wish I had answers, as I have just gone through a week of feeling like that. My advice is to just give in to it. If your body needs to sleep, then sleep. We have so many sleepless nights, I think once in a while it is our body's way of catching up, so go with the flow. All the things you aren't doing will still be there when you feel better. One thing I have learned on my courses is that we Fibromites must look after ourselves and listen to what our body is saying. Yours is saying go to bed, so off you go

Sleep well

Awwwwwwww gins you should rest, I've only just come to after really overdoing it yesterday and still feel shattered, so have returned to my beddery with dogs doing some snoring for me to gain credit ZZzzzzzzzz's. Take care gins and rest up all you can.

You need to rest too I suspect we all think we should be out and about and sometimes we just cannot do it can we. It is the sort of day I fancy rice pudding or custard but alas we have none. I am not eating such things anyway so a baked potatoe will do me what about you? xgins

Aww Gins,

Dont fight it, I think there comes a time when you just have to go with it, as the other have said, just lie down and sleep, it can only do you good after all, my doc has always told me to listen to my body, if your body needs to rest it will tell you, I think yours is telling you, get the rest you need and deserve. (((((hugs))))) Sleep well :) xxx

Hi there,I take berrocca,is the berrocca boost a different one and where can you buy it?x

Reply

i wont be going back to work as i am 64 now and have had fibro for 20 years but only gave up work 4 years ago but if it helps everyday well its good in my book xxx

Hi I use Berroca too I feel it is useful and if I am going out I add the old red bull or something like it. Thanks for the suggestion all the best xgins
