It took me 1/2 day to fill 4 weeks. I find it extremely frustrating. Any suggestions to make it easier?

Comment on Dear My Husband: This Is Why My Phone Phobia Is Actually A GOOD Thing by Jenifer Hunter http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/08/dear-my-husband-this-is-why-my-phone-phobia-is-actually-a-good-thing/comment-page-1/#comment-253634 Fri, 17 Mar 2017 05:24:47 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=11706#comment-253634 Um, ok, is this another one of fibro’s little gifts? My phone phobia is beyond pathological and I just assumed it was one of those random quirks that made me the snowflake that I am. I would totally love to move this to the fibro category because it is seriously embarrassing (I can hardly even listen to VM’s, as POTUS likes to say, “SAD!”).

Comment on Bipolar Brain Part 2: Liar Liar Pants On Fire by Debbie http://www.jennyryan.com/2017/02/bipolar-brain-part-2-liar-liar-pants-on-fire-2/comment-page-1/#comment-253540 Tue, 07 Mar 2017 08:55:46 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12415#comment-253540 Jenny, I love your website, in fact it’s one of the few I’ve got listed on my own blog not that I’ve many readers but a little helps go a long way.
Each time I venture on here I’m muttering to myself “oh I so know how you mean!” and, “she’s describing me!” and “although I hate it that another person has to be like me, I’m so blooming pleased I’m not alone!”
I’m bipolar and damned fibro came along a few years ago plus a whole host of other things related to/not related to fibro. So it’s websites and blogs like yours that help me so much.
Thanks lovely one, many blessings of the old Crone to you. Xx

Comment on Product Review: Quell by Joyce Killebrew Barnett http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/12/product-review-quell/comment-page-1/#comment-253205 Fri, 10 Feb 2017 00:57:07 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12349#comment-253205 I’ve suffered from herniated discs, OA, both knees bone on bone, and 10 years of disabling fibromyalgia. I took NSAIDS for too many years and develped stomach ulcers. Acetaminophen didn’t work well and nearly ruined my liver. I am looking into a cervical spine fusion and have had epidurals that didn’t help and that were excruciatingly painful, radiofrequency nerve ablations have helped for about 10 years, but are becoming less helpful. I finally obtained a prescription pain medicine, oxycodine. It helped some, but it exacerbated the depression I experience and never gave me total relief. Plus I am now addicted to it.
I started using the Quell a month ago, feeling that I had nothing to loose with the 60 day full refund policy. It feels like a miracle! I am experiencing hours of total pain relief, my energy levels are increasing, the depression is lifting, I’m sleeping better, life is good. Is the Quell perfect? ….Almost!

Not only has it reduced my pain, but it also has reduced my anxiety which in turn has put me in a better mood. It can be cumbersome to wear under dress clothes so I usually wear it at night while sleeping.

I think that it might work on my calf? It has two electrodes, I place them about 4 inches apart. I then set the intensity by number. Dies this sound like the unit that you are using? Thanks for any input!

I started using it in March, 2016. I can’t say that it has helped to greatly increase my level of activity, but it has made going through my day so much easier. I never want to be without this product for one day.
