I will, @sirgalahad. It has neen a very long day, today. The pain was over the top, plus some not so good news from the doctor. They won't renew my Lyrica prescription without an office visit. That will push me onto next week before I can be seen. I have been seen so many times in the past months. Oh well.C'est la vie.

I made a salad for dinner and we watched Phineas and Ferb. Read half of a health magazine and ate a handful.of almonds. I have a Caregivers Support Group meeting tomorrow. My first. Looking forward to it.

Hope everyone has restful sleep and a good night. Lights out!

Hi,@graceandpeace, I am relatively new to all of this. I have been prescribed Prilosec. I am not a very good patient in the sense that I hate taking pills when I think there might be side effects.

I keep hearing that Prilosec should be taken in certain circumstances, to prevent BE. And then I see where people are struggling to get off Prilosec.

So, I am on the fence. I would be interested in hearing all of your experiences. I would like to take of of your situations into consideration.

I will read with anticipation all of the posts regarding this.

Thank you!

Oh, you poor dear! @lyndeeee , you have experienced exactly what my daughter and I have experienced. Whether it is some chemical in the actual makeup of the tubes, band aids, masks, that are silicone based, we have a disastrous reaction to them.

So, to cut to the chase, in all my medical dealings, it is recorded loud and clear, that I am SEVERELY allergic to latex and silicone. Anything with rubber.

Weeping sores, poor healing, itching, draining, and even wheezing, are all symptoms that I choose to avoid if at all possible. I supply the first aid kit at church and we bought a bunch of vinyl gloves to keep handy. Just in case.

Take good care of you! Protect yourself. It's a rough road, but it's going to be ok.

Cyberhugs, love and light,

Oh, my, @jakedduck1 , friends who understand the power of carb rich, comfort food!!!

Those are the best…..
Veggies and salad are great and wonderful. But when we are laid up. ..Going through a Fibroflare, got a pulled muscle, using a walker…

We need that comfort food. That soul food. That touch of home.

God bless the carers! So thankful for all of them! And ice cream sandwiches? We need more friends like that!!!

Love and light, and cyberhugs,

Hey, @gingerw and @sirgalahad and all my bright lights…..keep shining!!!This past week was wonderful, awesome, challenging, gut wrenching, yet beautiful. All I can say right now is that I am in a really painful Fibroflare.

We went to church, were blessed by family and friends who love us, warts and all. So many new beginnings.

I can't wait to tell you about some of the things that happened.

Let me get through this pain first.
Love you all and so very proud of you all for stepping up, speaking out, and making a change in your own part of the world.

If you want to friend me on social media, you know how to find me. I should be the only one who mentions this particular site on her profile.

I don't do drama. But I do advocate.

Love and light.

Hi everyone. Today is Wedneaday, August 7, 2019. Here in the Southern United States, at least…..

We have members and guests here from all over the world! I hope that wherever you are on the clock, that you smiled, you laughed, and if you cried, you called on a cyber friend or a fleshandblood friend to pour our your troubles to.

There are many private groups on social media for us. Oftentimes cyber friends become as dear to us as fleshandblood friends. That has happened here on Connect. Many of you have supported us, encouraged us, and just had our back. That is a really good feeling.

Neurodiverse and Allies alike are invited to come here and chat. Share experiences, strength, and hope.

Within the next few weeks we will launch our book club, a welcome addition to the Spectrum Cafe.

We welcome you to the group. Pull up a chair, and stay awhile. We would love to get to know you.

We are better together.

Goodnight, me lovelies!

I believe they will!

Love and light to you!
