I went to your blog site and it is amazing. You are a truly talented person in dealing with your life. AND trying to help others with theirs.

"Tired of being tired and in pain." is a litany I am getting to know quite well. So as you've already discovered and I am just finding out, you are not alone. Thanks for your ongoing and fantastic efforts! Keep it up!

CakePoet, thank you for sharing. While I wouldn't wish this on anyone, it is nice to know I am not the only one and there is someone who understands. I am blogging about chronic pain and illness to try and help others get through it.

I am so glad you don't have the depression. It just intensifies everything else. I also have a poor immune system so I catch every cold and flu that comes around.

To justify this being in "What are you doing", I am up at almost 4 am with a cough and pain up and down my whole right side. I am waiting for my medicine to work and playing computer games, trying to clean off my desk and keep my mind off it.

LPBeier: Yeah bad immune system is normal with fibromyalgia. I have learned how breath through pain and I am on the base note very positive.

I now been in town and I again tired, but dishes need to be done. I am going to stare at them for a moment more and see if they do as they are told by them self. ;)

But I miss all my friends. So sometimes I come and just read what is going on in your lives and other times like today I post.

The truth is, I have about 15 chronic illnesses - mostly physical but I also suffer from bipolar and depression. The high parts of the bipolar are pretty well managed; however, like right now, I can still go into depression.

In the last while I have been diagnosed with liver and kidney issues which have come from a botched gallbladder surgery and all the medications I have been on through the years.

Besides my osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia taking away my ability to do cakes and cater, now these other conditions are limiting the food I can eat - another reason for avoiding a foodie group.

I hope no one is offended by my venting. I just needed to be real and thought it was time I was completely open and honest.

If this needs to be deleted I will understand and probably quietly stay away. But I like to think I have a few friends still here.

LP!!!!!
It's good to see you.We miss you around here.
Everybody has a days where we vent. Mine was a few weeks ago.When Mr. Munky got sick. It kept my sanity.If anyone has a problem with your vent, though knowing you for all these years, I didn't see it as such.I'm now called "Munky Badger" for a reason, (I was bad, still not sorry!)

You keep those positive thoughts active.
I LMAO, reading what your Monkey has been up to.Loved it
If I were ever to have a cat it would have the same attitude.

Keep in touch when you can, This is your home.
All the best.
Munky Badger.

How would you put it ?

Today is Family Day at the hospital.
Were to learn how to take care of Mr.Munky when he comes home tomorrow.
P/T/-O/T/S/P..teach him how to get into a vehicle safely, go over his diet with his Dietician.Were thrilled the day is almost here.

Last night I got one too many txt's from people saying that they were going to drop by Thursday and see him.
What's bothering me is they didn't ask! We've been on a roller coaster ride. A lot of things to do.
I really don't want people here! It's not the time. I resent that they haven't even considered his heath and our family's needs at all!

Mr.Munky has strict orders not to be overstimulated,barraged by people when he gets home.
He could have another stroke. The trip home is going to wear him out.Will probably be a painful one to.

I can't think past rude multi contacts replies "Access denied thoughts."

What would you say?

Munky Badger.

"I'm sorry, he can't have visitors for __________ days. Doctor's orders you know. You understand, don't you? But when he is allowed visitors, you really need to call first. Just to make sure he is up to it. I wouldn't want you to come all this way and be disappointed." You fill in the blank.

Munky Badger, I'm so glad tomorrow is the day!! You and your boys have been working so hard to get your home as safe and comfortable for him as can possibly be. He is SO lucky to have you all!

As far as the people wanting to visit, I would tell them exactly what the doctor said - something like "Thank you SO much for your concern and wanting to see him, but he is under strict doctors orders to avoid overstimulation and to get lots of rest. We'll give you a call when he's up to visitors...." Something like that.

I'm sure their heart is in the right place, they just don't understand - although I can't imagine just calling or texting and saying "We'll be by." I would never be so presumptuous.

And neither would I. As a former patient many times, I always found visitors tired me out more than any therapy or exercise. I always feel like I had to entertain them.
