New linky-link

*puts Fudgey's word back*

Fibrant Living. Stumbled across it yesterday while reading other answers for the SBQ. I have fibromyalgia and am still learning how to cope with it and continue doing the things that I love. Getting used to the constant muscle and joint pain has not been easy or fun, but I'm getting there. Most days now I can block it out. The first half of this week was rough, REALLY rough. The second half has been much better and tomorrow I get to SLEEP!! So I'll definitely feel better.

I wonder if anyone has ever done any studies in regards to fibrmyalgia and dreaming. I had some really strange dreams last night and I can't decide if it was because of lack of sleep earlier in the week due to fibro or if it was because I watched Supernatural last night... One of the dreams had supernatural elements so I'm leaning towards the fact that it was because I watched Supernatural. But if that's the case why was Johnny Depp in it instead of Dean????

I wish you well w/the fibro. I have the same but no where near as bad as most. Mine is usually worse when I don't sleep enough, but I feel for you ... NOT a good time.
In other news ... ANY Johnny Depp is a good Johnny Depp. Heh. :o)

Thanks for the link!

Have you had a sleep study? Our sleep specialist says that if you have really vivid dreams, it's because you woke up right after, meaning you aren't sleeping deeply enough. There is a sleep disorder present in most fibromyalgia cases, the alpha-delta sleep anomaly. Getting better sleep definitely helps with the pain!

Namaste,
Cyn
