Fibromyalgia and all his fancy women!

That is how I look at the problem a lot if us have in being that we have more than one ailment going on at any given time. I was asking myself this just two days ago 'Would I cope better if I ONLY had FMS?' And the answer is yes, I probably would cope better. But right now I think I am in about my 10th week of a fibro flare, about 7-8 weeks into a COPD flare, which exacerbated the early hours of Xmas morning and resulted in me siting in the bathroom for an hour running hot water and filling the room up with steam. And now although I have eaten very little something has irritated the stomach and duodenal ulcers as well as forcing the Hiatus hernia up into my gullet, extremely painful right now. So now when something happens with my FMS I say to hubby 'Well I never, Fibro has another fancy woman around' and he just laughs. But I have been very ill since 4.30am Xmas morning(hence me not being here much to support everyone) and have had to go one, which is what we do, we carry on regardless. We hear all the time people saying slowdown, take it easy, relax a while, but to be honest I do not think we are made that way. So I am herenow bolstering up the side lol and wishing you all well xxxxxx(Oh and my daughter got another UTI for Xmas, I should have offered to wrap it up eh)moan over

  • hi again Ozzy you moan away hun as i thought that was part of being on this site.

    you are right just having 1 thing would probably be much easier but then we are unique in that we like to mix things up.

    is there nothing they can do for your hernia ?

    I too am "stoic" or b minded and like to do as much as i can , like you say its the way we are , in fact its what has got me this far. it would have been easier to have thought oh i will just sue them but no i battled on

    your poorly daughter too bless her hope she gets better asap

    take care hun xx

  • Try again, I have tried to post this reply once already lol. Come on fibrosite play fair and stop making me use more energy by retyping everything lol. Daughter goes back to Urology 4th Jan so hoping to have some idea of what is going on. As for me I am putting on a brave face each time visitors arrive. But hubby has been fab and daughter is doing as much as she can to help out. We have been living on cold foods since having a roast Xmas day as I am just not up to cooking right now. So I am getting plenty of rest. xxxxx

  • Healthy people have no idea do they? I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much all at once (((((hugs))))) xxx

  • No they don't hun. I was over at the doctors just before Xmas getting daughters catheters. I heard a woman say, 'I have come over as I am starting with a cold and I do not want to be ill at Xmas' to which the receptionist told her that unless she had heart or lung disease she was highly unlikey to be given a prescription. She stormed out with a huff and a puff and what sounded like an attempt at trying to do a sneeze. Some people just waste NHS resources if you ask me. xxxxx

  • Ozzygirl. I am sorry that you have been unwell. There is a difference between having FMS and being unwell, i think we could all cope with the FMS better if that is all we had. I wish you a speedy recovery, to find some balance. hugs xxx Beverley

  • Hun, finding balance, I would have better luck trying to work a seesaw on my own lol. Hugs for you all too xxxxx

  • Haha i know that feeling hugs xxx

  • :-P

  • The timing for these things never ceases to amaze. You are so supportive for everyone else, really wish you feeling better very soon. xx

  • Oh I felt so guilty for basically not being here. I did try but I just could not do it. I will answer the replis on the page and then I am going to sit by the radiator for ten minutes lol, with a cappucino xxxxx

  • Hope you start to feel better very soon Ozzygirl and your daughter too.

    Be very gentle with yourself. Like you, I have a host of other ailments! Half the time I am not sure whether my pain is all to do with FMS ,or a mixture of other things. All I know is I am never free from pain or fatigue, but we soldier on as best we can don't we, because that is the kind of people we all are, which is probably how we got into "this fine mess" in the first place!

    Take great care of yourself. Love and hugs Saskia XX

  • I do not hink I have hit the peak of it all yet, I feel worse today so I must be getting to the point where it will ease off, I hope lol xxxxxx

  • So sorry Ozzygirl. Let's hope that once you have "peaked" the symptoms will start to ease. It must be so difficult having a poorly daughter, too. My heart goes out to you.

    Lots of love and healing thoughts. Saskia XX

  • Thanks hun

    I am just trying to catch up on here, daughter is sitting in with hubby so I can get something done here, that way even though I feel so bad I won't feel as though I am letting my friends down on here xxxxx

  • 2 Hiatus hernias, never knew you could have two, are they in the same place?????

  • Hi i was told mine were re occuring i have had 2 the 1st open surgery and 2nd laparoscopy but went wrong and tookover 2 wk to get sorted i was rushed on 999 and still found nothing! I went back to surgery and had nerves wrapped in screws and here i am today been constant pain since! I should sue but i havent , i could be permanently in wheelchair had i not persisted something was wrong! I kept saying pain different. Now i have adaptions at home almost 3yrs later come may.

    Its ruined my life as i work for myself too and had to have others doing my job. Crippling finances.

    Sorry Ozzy to share all that but its whats left me this way now.

    Have you still got yours above your naval belly xx

  • Wow you have been through the mill. I never knew you could have two. Mine is where the stomach has partly gone up into the gullet. Told not suitable for surgery as I fit afterwards. So painful at times and feels as though I am having a heart attack. My GP says it would be hard to tell the difference as this is laying on the heart nerve or something. So I am stuck with it xxxxx
