Princess and the pea, fibro???

Postby evie15 » Thu Feb 28, 2013 12:04 pm

I couldn't sleep last night, nothing strange there, but I couldn't get comfortable. I have lots of layers of quilts on top of my mattress to try to make it more comfortable, my pillows were digging into my back too and I thought to myself, I wonder if the princess from the princess and the pea fairytale had fibro too! :-D

My mother has called me this for years as I can feel any lump or bump in bed and have to have it straightened out as it causes me great pain. It has been a running joke that I am the princess from that story, but last night it came to me that maybe she was suffering like us all with such a terrible pain condition.

Anyone had a similar thought? Or maybe now thinks it could be so?

I have often been likened to the princess in the story as I also can feel every wrinkle or bump in the bed.

Maybe as you say she really was just a fibromite........but then again ...... are we not all princess'/princes in our own right. :-D

Apparently I've always been a princess, but that might not be the same sort of princess we're on about here :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am another one with problems when peas are in the bed tho, and at my worst, even the smallest bit of bobbling on the bedding feels like gravel on my skin :pull-hair: :pull-hair: :pull-hair: :pull-hair: It's got so bad at times that I've woken OH at daft o'clock so we can change all the bedding after I've checked all the stuff in the box to make sure it is all smooth and bobble~free :shock: :shock: :shock:

I know, I have asked for help in the middle of the night because a crease in a sheet underneath feels like a metal pole sticking in my leg or back!

It's interesting as I googled it and it appears the connection has been made in the past!! :-D
