Flu, Fibro, or Arthritis?

Sorry for the lack of blog posts, I've been so sick.  I've had fever between 100-101, chills, sweating, coughing, sore throat, headache, wheezing, body aches, and stuffy nose.  In other words, I've been completely miserable.  As I sit here feeling miserable and sorry for myself, I wonder how much of how I feel is the flu (or whatever I have), how much is fibro, and how much is from the arthritis.

It's thundering and raining here, which is a relaxing combo for me.  I've drugged myself with some Nyquil, and I'm about to lay down for a nap.  I only wish I had a bed that didn't hurt me to sleep in.  Between the AC Joint Arthritis in my shoulders, and the fibro pressure points, I toss and turn the entire time.  I'll have to be up by 4pm though, to start supper.  Tonight I'm making meatloaf...brocolli, rice & cheese casserole...and macaroni 'n cheese.  Sick or not, dinner must go on.


  1. Well I hope you get to feeling better. I would think that the fever, coughing, sore throat and wheezing is not fibro or any of the Ritis clan. I have been sick twice with bronchitis since the first of December and the daycare kiddos seem to all have been sick all winter. I hope you kick whatever you have and can enjoy some of this great weather we have been having.

  2. You have finally been included in Fibro Bloggers Directory and sorry for delay.
    I always feel i can't get comfy in bed anymore: just thought it was the condition - not the bed.

  3. Hi found you on Fibro Bloggers - hope you are feeling much better.

  4. Hi Tammy,
    Yes, I know that the fever, coughing, etc was not fibro or arthritis. I was mostly thinking about my body aches and pain LOL. Today I'm fever free, and feel like I'm on the mend!

  5. Hi Good,
    Thank you for the inclusion in the Fibro Blogger's Directory, I appreciate the add! A lot of the pain I feel laying in bed is probably due to the condition, but I have an old, delapidated mattress that would probably make anybody hurt LOL. My research has shown that memory foam mattresses, such as a Temper Pedic, can make a world of difference in a person with fibro. It relieves all of the pressure points. I'm unfortunately not in a position right now to purchase one, but it is on my wish list LOL.

  7. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
