Thank you for that FluppyPuffy, that is a good run-down of what you should do to solve a problem. Unfortunately in my case it usually involves other people who are not prepared to help you solve that problem :roll: .........

But it definitely helps everyone work out a problem rather than sticking your head in the sand over it. Mind you, I think I always over-anaylyse (spelt right?) things. But I find it helps as well to talk things out with someone else if you can't do it on your own, sometimes a fresh opinion from someone else also helps you work out a problem :)

Asfor ironing, clothes get put away, then ironed if need be when I need to wear them lol!......I find if you let them dry hanging up they sometimes lose most of the creases-at least that's what I tell myself! :D
You only regret the things you haven't done in life-so do everything you can! :D

That's right, I said fibromyalgia is a bain in my pottom!.........Oh, wait!

Ironing ahhhh well not a total solution more of a work around ...so If Hubbs buys shirts I make him buy the non iron ones , then I hang them to dry on a hanger and most times they dont need an Iron secondly I dont iron much , I have friends that Iron vests and sheets I think thats just :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: NUTS!, learn to live with crumpled and consider ironing when your buying clothes I buy a lot of things that have the crushed look built in so no ironing needed, saying that work clothes for me is pretty smart casual if I had to wear suits or something I would deffo have issues !

For ironing I invested in a steamer, like the ones they use in shops. Put clothes on a hanger, wave the steam wand over them, hey presto - creases gone. I sit on a tall stool to do mine, all done very quickly & easily.

This made me smile not in a nasty or sarcastic way, but this being my first day here I still think I am a complete NUT job, and so does my family, bless them. Whenever I tell them about my head and whats going on they say oh yes that's like me, we all forget things. So I am led to believe I am a fake and making a fuss over nothing. I have started having to do my own shopping as I fell out with my sister, again over my condition but it's driving me to tears I cannot focus on what I want, I try making lists and even take them with me and forget I have it with me. I find I am getting more and mre anxious and angry. And to top it all I have always been led to believe FM is an imaginary illness. :cry:

im sure one day my mum told me my paper weight was called an iron, and she thought my beginers surf board was an ironing board, i had to heave it out the cupboard where it hides as its rather heavy and show her how its meant to be used, the big flat bit goes on the water or snow (your preference) it has adjustable height seat and handle to help you balance, for some reason she fell to the floor and rolled around laughing!!! :lol:
