Hey diddle, gentle hugs.

Am on my third night/day of not getting any sleep at all and just virtually climbing the walls with Mr Fibro et al -

I have a brand new table and chairs waiting to be assembled - they are parked in the hallway still in the box - and have been for MONTHS now! Wanna sort them for me? Petty please? :-D You're a braver gal than I am having a go at it yourself. I also find those allen keys, provided with flat packs, useless too. So I bought a solid set of them from a D.I.Y. store. Until Mr Fibro gripped me tighter - I was a great D.I.Y.-er - now I can barely open a can of anything before my hands starting curling up in agony.

I've a busy day a head - and not looking forward to any of it - but being on my own I have to make myself go out, pay bills, buy groceries etc., and get back home - before major panic and anxiety start at me.

I hope you take it easier today sweetie. Be kind to yourself.

So sorry you're still having the horrible early waking Diddle. It must really grind you down. I'm not around at 4 am these days as since I changed my meds I am able to sleep at a normal time.

Did miss you when you took a day off the forum. Your the backbone of this forum for me Diddle.

Dragged myself to work with wrist splints and am typing very carefully with two fingers. Think I need a meds review too. Shame cause had a great two weeks or so but bubble has trully burst.
