Hello from Bovey Tracey, Devon!

Postby BoveySusie » Thu Oct 01, 2009 10:15 am

Hi all - my name's Sue and was diagnosed in June by my rheumatologist - I'm 58, married to Keith who must be a saint trying to understand this MASSIVE life change for both of us. We have a sweet little westie - Barney and 3 grown up children, all flown the nest!
I've been visiting the forum for months but have only just plucked up the courage to post - you all really make me laugh sometimes which has got to be good! We are trying to keep a sense of humour but sometimes it's really hard - just a really silly thing yesterday tho had us crying with laughter and I thought I'd share.... We were shopping at our local supermarket - me in a wheel chair with the trolley 'thing' attached - managed to have a giggle going round the store until we got to the checkout. I noticed a spider walking across the trolley - not huge huge - but big enough to cause a possible heart attack - I tried to keep calm and asked Keith to remove it but it kept hanging on!! And I couldn't move! The trolley was clamped on full of shopping - just about to go into panic attack mode when it fell off. It made us laugh anyway!
p.s.If anyone can advise how to get my brain back I'd love to know!! And is there a local support group?

Take care all - Sue

Hi Sue & :welcome:

Sorry to hear you have fibro but glad you have decided to post. This forum is great in helping us to cope, you realise you are not alone and we can have a laugh despite the pain. :D

Hope that spider wasn't an illegal immigrant LOL! :yikes: :yikes:

If you do find a way to get your brain back let me know :lol:

Take care
Mia xx

Hi again Mia

Didn't think of that - incy wincy probably slipped in on a banana skin - help :yikes:

Thanks for the welcome and joking aside the 'missing' brain is one of the hardest things to cope with - that and the fibro fog/pain/overwhelming exhaustion etc! My heart goes out to all the younger members out there - it's hard enough coping when you're retired let alone having to cope with young families - but maybe there will be a magic 'cure' one day... :?

Take care - Sue

Hi Sue. :wave:
:welcome: Really happy you have joined us, as you will know we do try to have a bit of a laugh, it does help to take our mind of the pain for a short while.

We also have a great friendly forum and offer support and good advice.

Brain fog is a big problem, i find writing things down help.

P.S. Hope the spider did not fall into your shopping bags, :yikes: you might have given it a new home.. :D :D

Thanks again for all the welcome messages - Shaz you're off my Christmas card list!! I'll have to double check my shopping bags now! Only joking - I think incy was accidentally trodden on in the panic - oops - sorry to all the spider lovers out there :lol:

We're heading towards Midhurst for a week but really look forward to catching up with the forum when we get back.

Love Sue x
