I mentioned before about talking about symptoms. Well, today it seems that I need to talk about being sleepy. Last night I got about 5 hours sleep. That is an occasional thing as I usually try to get around 7 hours of sleep.

I feel so exhausted today and it's terrible!To make matters worse, today is one of my "long days" I had to be in at 5am and will probably work to 4pm. I pray for strength for this.

Anyway, back to the tiredness. Every feel like you were up all night for the past 3 nights partying and then were hit by a truck? You'd feel achy and so tired. That's what it feels like right now. I'lll go through times of From feeling tired to exhausted.'s website has a good definition of tired as:

In today's world many people complain of fatigue; however, the fatigue of FM is much more than being tired. It is an all-encompassing exhaustion that interferes with even the simplest daily activities. It feels like every drop of energy has been drained from the body, which at times can leave the patient with a limited ability to function both mentally and physically.

I can barely stay awake and am waiting until lunch time so I can go take a nap in the car.

I would like to stop being tired all the time.

Bowling?!?! - What was I thinking?

It's been a few days, so I wanted to write about what's been happening. This past week, two of our kids have had chorus rehearsals and have had performances this past Thursday and Friday.

The long days during the week have been pretty rough, but yesterday, I took a few of the kids bowling. Well, needless to say, we had a great time! The kids beat me.

Today, though (actually, it started last night) I am hurting and am taking Lortab to try to help deal with the pain.

Unfortunately, it doesn't help with the tiredness.

Well, I guess that' s all for now.
