Wish you would write more but I totally get why that can’t happen! As I sit here after getting the kids to school and wishing for some magic “anything” that would help us all go “POOF” and we were well (or I would even be grateful for even a teensy bit better) I think of at all the younger parents and teachers and staff at the school and their energy and even the strange way they all actually walk upright with a spring in their confident, proud and purposeful step. So I see myself as the slumped over body trying to protect myself from those looks of “what in the hell is wrong with her” stares or I can almost hear them in my imaginary whispers saying “those poor kids of hers have to put up with a mom like that”. I see myself with an anguished look of absolute frustration and hate for them on my face (ok, I don’t REALLY hate them. Just sorta an intense jealousy thing I have going on cause I wish I could walk upright with the purposeful, steady, confident step of a healthy person. That is until I trip over the first grader that I didn’t see and land on my butt and cry until my kids walk past me and pretend they don’t know me! (REALLY TRYING TO LOL!) glad to hear from you and looking forward to next time! Take precious gentle care of yourself Jenny!

Comment on Product Review: Mo’s Dream Cream by Chris Lunn http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/07/product-review-mos-dream-cream/comment-page-1/#comment-251309 Tue, 23 Aug 2016 21:02:41 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12120#comment-251309 ‘Ello Jenny…. This is Chris, Liz’s “not so well” half. (For to many reasons to count… as well as some I’ve most likely forgotten about). I’ve heard many good things about you from Liz… She told me I oughta get in touch with you and introduce myself.

So… this stuff is good? If so…. do they sell it in 55 gallon drums so I can fill my bathtub with it then?? I’ll try about anything at this point! After 16+ years of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), it’s getting kinda old, ya know? Hehe

I admit to being selfish and only looking for information on Fibro but from now on I’ll remember the countless others out there trying to find relief too. Kudos to you for spreading the news. As always, a pleasure to read from Cranky Fibro Girl!

Comment on Product Review: PillSuite by Laurie http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/05/product-review-pillsuite/comment-page-1/#comment-251244 Thu, 04 Aug 2016 18:17:36 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12085#comment-251244 Hi CFG! Just read your review of the PillSuite. I have to say that I have just about the same size pill bag and the same amount of bottles spilling out of that bag!! 🙂

I am a gadget fan as well but to me, it seems like a lot of trouble to put some pills into bags. After I looked at all the pix and read your review, I was thinking, ‘why not just get some small bags and put the pills in manually?’ It would be so much easier!

The downside of having our pills in anything other than the Rx bottles is if we go somewhere and need to take some with us. It is an Arrestable Offence to have ANY Rx Meds in our possession without the correct bottles!! At least it is here in Florida.

I hope I didn’t confuse you too much with my input! 🙂

I kept telling my doctors it’s not just Fibromyalgia I really think it’s Lupus. I finally got to a Rheumatologist that had my blood work done at a state-of-the-art laboratory, not a chain like Quest or Lab Corp. I went in to discuss my results. “YOU HAVE SYSTEMIC LUPUS,chronic liver disease, hypothyroidism. …” and a virus I thought only dogs could get as well as Fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and on and on. Anyway I read this blog about Lyrica and I agree with you 100+% about everything you said.
Thank you, I hope you are finding some comfort throughout the day.
You are my hero! !
