I should have known better!

Postby whoami » Thu May 09, 2013 11:36 pm

You know when you think it is a nice night to go out for a bite but some little thing is saying...don't do it...listen!

I have been having a couple of bad days, got heat stroke, the next day could hardly move. Today I felt a bit better but not quite right. I thought it would be a good idea to go out for fish and chips ( remember we are a good 24 hr drive straight to the sea) Finding a good chippy here is not easy but we have one about 20 minute drive.

Off we went. Went in got a booth, I can't sit on a hard chair on a good day. We were there all of five minutes when all hell broke loose. I started perspiring so bad my clothes were soaked, however I was shivering. My back and belly were dripping but you could feel the coldness of my hips through my trousers, my skin was like ice. I could no longer sit as my lower back was in so much pain I was in tears. Needless to say my wonderful hubby, wolfed down his fish and chips.

We are home now, within an hour of leaving. I am in my jammies on the sofa. I am debating taking extra meds. I already use 150 fentanyl. I hate giving in to more meds but my hubby said why put yourself through this.

It will pass, I know. I just needed to vent. I have the hubby everyone wishes for but I hate having him have to deal with so much I have other issues besides fibro and he has his own medical issues.

Thanks for listening.

Sometimes, as much as we hate it, resorting to some additional meds to help us thru a spike in things is not only necessary, but also the only thing to do. I try to keep some of the things I take daily below their max dosage where possible, so when things become even uglier than normal I've still got a back~up plan.

Hope things start to settle for you soon and that the indigestion monster didn't affect your hubby after his impromptu attempt at the fish and chip speed eating record.

Thanks for the comments.

My hubby managed to finish his meal and eat mine while I paid the bill. His tummy is fine. I think men have tummies that can withstand anything, LOL

The poor waitress thought there was a medical emergency. She said she looked over and saw me and called 911. Thank heaven she was able to call back, they still showed up about two minutes after we left. I got a call at home. They must have gone through my bank card to get our home number. I didn't know that they did a follow up on cancelled calls. I had to reassure them everything was OK.

Hi whoami

So sorry you couldn't enjoy your meal. I know what you mean though, I'm quite stubborn and even when my body sometimes whispers "Don't do it" I will still go ahead and do it lol.

I think the way the restaurant acted was really commendable (if that's the right word lol a bit foggy today) I can't imagine any places in the UK being so considerate about their customers.

Take care whoami, lots of rest for you. :hugs:

LouLou,....The restaurant is very nice. It is owned by a girl from Newfoundland, a Newfie to us here, LOL

The people from Newfoundland remind me a lot of people from home, North Yorkshire. They are very practical, down to earth, direct but the most generous loving people. They even have a bit of a Yorkshire accent, they don't pronounce the H in words like house etc.

Thankyou to the rain Gods......finally it is raining and I am feeling much better. This waiting was a killer this time.

As we all know weather can affect us terribly. I find that sometimes it takes forever to break. Like this week, it has supposed to have rained three days ago but it held off. The pressure change was happening but not fast enough. Is this how it is for you? Your body knows and tells you there is a change coming. ..it just needs to hurry up
