Holly today was one of those days that you sort of just did nothing - like all of a sudden you had nothing pressing - great feeling. Your right do need a shopping trip which no doubt will happen soon and a dinner out great idea!!!
but I expected SOME side effects,,,,they shouldn't last long, and I think the reduced pain will be worth a few days of exhaustion in the long run I've really got high hopes for this drug,,and it's far more conservative than lyrica or some of the other drugs that really do a job on your body and mind,,,,,
Shouldn't take too long to remember where to look for you girls.
This has been a long day, strange sometimes when dh is traveling, the day actually goes by really fast but some days when he is home well the day drags. Do believe need to come up with some fun things that we can do like go some place for the day. We are not that far away from the Biltmore House and it has been years since touring it and am sure there are other places to check out.
Actually I'm still here, what I meant to say was...I'll talk to YOU (as in Michelle) later.
I just placed another order with Stampin Up. I ordered a word window punch...I've seen them before and I love them. A modern label punch to layer under that one, a stamp set, a marker and a pack of paper.
I know Holly - Bob and I get in a rut and tend to forget hey we have time, some spending money, and just need to do things then sit in the family room with our laptops and the tv on - getting old only doing this. . .
This year when we go to the timeshare in Daytona want to take a day and go to Disney (been years since being there)!
hip hip hooray for mel!!!!!!! so michelle..tell us about the condo!!
hi holly.. what meds do they have you on? im glad the kids are cooking. we know the danger when you are thinking straight.. sheeesh..imagine the poor neighbors if you tried to cook while on these meds!
hi jane! im glad the banquet was a success and that it is over now! time to do some serious scrapping and shopping!! lol
hi kim! im happy for you that dh is home! a friend of mine from work had a candlelight valentines dinner with her husband and 2 kids. she said they had a blast! so..it will be nice to have the whole family together for dinner!
oh yeah.. kim.. are you selling stampin up stuff? i love their ink pads. lol if you are let us know, you may get an order or 2 from some of us (me me me!!!!) lol
so i went to the wound clinic this morning. the opening to my wound is now .5cm..yup you heard that right! its tiny. the inside..the depth is about 2.4cm. thats pretty small too. the doc was concerned that the opening is closing faster than the inside so he changed what i need to pack it with. he gave me this foam.. ill put the ointment stuff in and then pack the foam in it. the foam should hold the opening..open. i go back in 2 weeks. im just tickled over this.. i knew it was getting small..but to get an official measurement made my day! lol
i have my coffee cooked and im in scrappy room already. ive just been beside myself all day to get in here. lol im gonna find a movie to watch and then get to scrapping!
Hi Crissy!!!! I am dancing over your wound healing!!!!!!!!!! so happy for you
they have me on cymbalta, which stops your brain from interpreting pain. Since I have fibro, what feels like a 5 on the pain scale to you, feels like a ten to me,,,,,so it blocks some of that and brings it down to normal
they also have me on tram-adol for breakthrough pain,,,,this is the one I've taken before, and I find it a good drug,,,,non-narcotic, so it's better for you than a ton of the other pain killers, but still strong enough to handle pain
ive heard of those before holly. i dont know anyone whos taken cymbalta..but i know a couple that has taken ******** with great results! yay for medications!! lol hey hey hey...easy on the dancin girlfriend.. u dont need to hurt yourself even more! hehe
i just plan on the usual this weekend. scrappin!! fun fun fun! lol
thanks jane.. it is a relief!! what are you up to tonight?
the doctor told me that fibromyalgia is the PERCEPTION of more pain than one should actually feel,,,,,,the theory is that a virus or accident or something "sensitized" my nerves to feel TOO MUCH pain,,,,,,,,and send a message to the brain that I am feeling more than I should,,,,,,
I had to laugh at that,,,,it's all in my head but our brains ARE what tell us to feel pain and how MUCH.
hey isnt that what that other doctor told you.. i mean the original one. no..its made up pain. its all in your head. you know my memory sux but i am thinking thats kind of what you had said before. lol
Wow - that is interesting on pain Holly! To me, pain hurts and there is different levels of intensity like I remember labor pain and how it came in waves, started little and got super worse, stopped, started all again but that was short lived thank goodness!
Regardless, you pain hurts really bad when you have it from what you have described and it keeps hurting unless you can find the right meds, etc. to control it. Hang in there - you will conquer this and feel so much better.
hi everyone .......nice to come on and see all the fun chatter!
so i told you eating out is always an ordeal .....well we drove around suggesting several places .......and we ended up at McDonalds! .......yes you read that right! ........thats what the girl wanted! ..........OY! ..........so i had a mushroom and swiss angus wrap .....well half of one ....but those are so yummy!
Cris so happy your wound is FINALLY healing!
ok mels condo is a 2 bed 2 bath carriage style (house is over the garage) ......2 car garage ......1600 sq ft ........fireplace .......needs painting and some carpet ....but it is in the same complex as the other 2 .....and its $10,000 cheaper!
McDonald's that is funny, but hey nothing wrong with McDonald's that's for sure.
Oh, Mel's condo sounds really nice and roomy and a 2 car garage - wow. Not bad at all with having to paint and do carpet, she can pick out her fav. colors for the walls, and type of carpet she wants. Does her place come with a refrig. and washer/dryer?
hehehe michelle..sounds like a great friday night! lol well.. i cant wait till yall are ready to show the pics! its so exciting! you guys have had a very exciting week! im so happy for yall!
oh yeah, i placed an order at j's. i found some stamps..they are on sale this week. and a couple of packs of bazzill smoothie paper..black and brown. and a new TH distresser, mine is getting worn. lol anyways, i found a coupon code and i wound up saving just about enough to cover the shipping! woohoo! lol
yes.. happy birthdays and thinking of yous. i got a couple of each..i got 5 packs of stamps. a couple of them are single and a couple are in pack with a few. the most i paid for 1 of the packs was 5.99. yay! im glad you told me to do that instead of ebay. i think it worked out fine, plus i was able to get that cardstock that i needed too!
Cris - sounds like a nice order you placed and glad your coupon helped cancel out most of the shipping charges! I have a cart filled, but haven't hit the send button yet on some of the new My Mind's Eye line, not sure yet, need to start doing layouts with what I have, but it is so tempting - really like paper, etc.,!!!!!!!
Yes, Michelle I know what you mean about wild friday nights - gosh can remember when dating couldn't wait for Friday nights and Saturday nights - times have changed

Hi, Mandi. Honey, I am so sorry for all the issues you are having! OMG. I pray you are right...you've had your 3 things now it will turn around for you.
Hi, Cris. No I'm not selling it. I've thought about signing up as a demonstrator so I can get the 10% discount but then I don't get to participate in the monthly club and I think I'm going to look forward to scrapping with others once a month. I'm going to place another order on the 1st I can place your order with mine and ship it to you if your interested. Let me know and I'll give you the website to look up. I may still do it in the future...it would be nice to get the discount but I don't know yet.
