Oh sweetie I wish just all of us could meet together and spend some time cooking. I bet with all of us we could get a lot done lol. I can't relate to kids because I don't have any. But 6 dogs 9 ducks 3 roosters and 9 hens and my giant turkey. Plus 4 baby chicks. That's enough for me to go nuts plus it's supposed to freeze here in Texas tonight. Encourage your kids while on Christmas vacation to do some laundry or try to explain to them how your condition is and how it affects you. I had my 14 year old niece recently stay with me for over a month with her 3 dogs, one is a puppy German Shep. and I had to stay on top of her to clean etc. Gave her chores and all. She wasn't used to them but she got to see first hand what aunty goes through on a daily basis. How one minute I'm walking okay but next I can barely move. I'll be praying for you. My mom gave me some extra money just so I could get stuff to bake although hands are beginning to swell and hurt so badly in my joints I don't know how much cooking I can do either. I wish I could be there to encourage you and help what I can but just do the best you can. And the best you can is good enough. Don't be so hard on yourself. Ask for help. My mom is helping me wash today so I'm learning to ask for help a little more than normal.

My dear Tracy, you have done nothing wrong, just the luck of the draw, actually bad luck. We each have our own issues in trying to deal with Fibro. Stress is a huge and finding just what medications... more
