Learning & Shopping & Stuff

She was con­scious that the things she did were the things she had always want­ed to do.

I’ve been tru­ly read­ing Fibromyal­gia and Chron­ic Myofas­cial Pain: A Sur­vival Man­u­al instead of just refer­ring to bits here and there. It’s not easy read­ing, as it’s not ter­ri­bly well-writ­ten or edit­ed. There’s lots of good infor­ma­tion in it, though, and both authors have Fibromyalgia/Chronic Myofas­cial Pain. I’ve even been remem­ber­ing to print out some of the Infor­ma­tion for Health Care Providers to take to appoint­ments with me. I’m not sure how often they’re tru­ly being read, but I’m trying.

Is any­one else here using the Well­ness Recov­ery Action Plan described in the book? I’m hav­ing trou­ble get­ting going on that. I think part of it is relat­ed to the same prob­lems I have in get­ting start­ed with Life Bal­ance software—I’m not good about reward­ing myself or sched­ul­ing things I enjoy.

Some­one post­ed a link to this Ani­ma­tion based on Zoloft com­mer­cials to fibromyal­gia. I’m quite amused. sam­bear, you def­i­nite­ly need to watch it.

sam­bear is off run­ning errands and get­ting shad­owkatt back from her stay with her friend C and then my fam­i­ly. I fig­ure she’ll dive in for a net fix as soon as she gets here and I’ll be lucky to get a hug in pass­ing. sam­bear reports that she’s all boun­cy from two days of retail ther­a­py in a row. We still need to go out to find more jeans for her—she only found one pair in two long shop­ping trips. She actu­al­ly had much bet­ter luck find­ing jeans when she went thrift-store shop­ping with isar­ma, so I sup­pose we need to hit those stores.

Oh—since two peo­ple in one week freaked out to learn that I was tak­ing Xanax on a reg­u­lar basis, I stopped tak­ing it. I want­ed to see if I was addict­ed or not. I’m still alive and I haven’t had any with­draw­al symp­toms. I am more anx­ious, so I guess it was doing some­thing for me.
