Well, I've been at the doctors office last week four days out of 5! I had to get some tests. Why? Well, the pain clinic doctor thinks that I have fibromyalgia. Which is just great! I feel like I have degenerative arthritis! So, that's where I've been. And it's been kind of a bummer because I haven't been feeling like knitting or spinning either. I have been forcing myself to do both. Actually, that's part of the reason I put down the fair isle. I don't like to knit something that I'm not inspired to knit or spin! But my doctor told me to keep spinning, and try to do it every day! Which I thought, Hey, that's no problem. Except, my knees feel like they are going to explode! So, I start knitting, and them my elbows start to lock up! This fibromyalgia sucks! It is not fun at all. Especially for someone like me, whose very daily existence depends on the needles and the wheel! So, I got a humongous tube of Bengay, and rub everything down, and then I get to business! Happy knittin and spinnin to you all..... :)

I'm so sorry to hear that! Is your diagnosis definite? At least the good thing is that the doctor told you to spin, and didn't forbid you to do it. Just do as much as you feel you want to, and hopefully, that won't cause you too much pain.

Sending all my positive thoughts your way.

Thanks everyone! I just want to feel ok daily, instead of feeling like I'm 500! And now, I have to make myself get up and do things even though I'm in pain! But, hey, that's life right? Thanks for the encouraging words though!
