    why do you think you have difficulty getting a good rest? I think….. I have a hard time calming my brain from hashing and rehasing every little thing from the day – wish I could learn some meditation techniques……

    Not sure why I don’t sleep well. Could be hereditary, my Dad doesn’t sleep well.
    Part of it could be my fibromyalsia, that’s a symptom of it.
    Like you I sometimes have a hard time calming my brain down. So at night I need to sit in front of the TV and veg or read a book for a while. Sometimes sleep just doesn’t come or I wake up a lot. But I’m SOOOO greatful when I do get a good night sleep. I just take it one day at a time.

    I’m sorry, Mare…… yeah, I think the ADD may be behind mine… brain just races – and usually about nothing important, which is the worst part. I could justify it, if I was actually thinking about something important. TV is good for me… back in the day, when you could still find b&w old movies on tv, that was best….. Does your fibromyalsia cause you a lot of discomfort?

    Good days and bad days.
    More good days now. It’s taken years to get to this point but I’ve had help from a Holistic Dr. I decided I wasn’t going to use meds to cover up the symptoms. This silly disease started someway and there had to be a way to reverse it. Too much to go into here but my Dr and I worked on a lot of things to get it under control. Moving from town to the country has helped a lot too. I think a lot of what I was dealing with was also environmental. My Doc agrees. According to his research we were living in “a soup bowl” of toxins. Cancer alley they call it.

    Whew! Sorry didn’t mean to spill my guts there and to get so long winded.
    Thanks for asking though.

    Good luck with the ADD. There HAS to be something that can help you with that too.
    Hang in there!

    Sleep, sleep, sleep…….for us both tonight!

    Bless you Nana Chick!!!
    One day at a time.
    One day at a time chickie!
    Sleeeeeeep for you too!!

    never apologize! I’m glad you’re finding some holistic things that work for you. Some super nasty side-effects to some of the pharmaceutical answers to that mysterious disease….. I am open to looking at holistic. A blend of that, plus Western, like dear Dr. Andrew Weil talks about…. Being a native Illini, I can imagine where in Indiana that you used to live – fresh, clean air is a GOOD thing! God Bless! – feel free to vent/share/anything anytime – you have my gmail address? smokyrosebeader@gmail.com – I am allllll too happy to listen, Mare – as my mom says, we all have a cross to carry – but there is no shame in helping eachother to carry that cross.

    btw: I wasn’t around much today because my grandma’s computer is slow and freezes up, but I tried to keep up (even though I couldn’t comment)…also the good news was that I got to sleep in until 9:30… :D (honestly, at grandmas, I usually wake up at 10:30 ;) )

    Hard to go to sleep before 11 PM and then hard to wake up next day…lead me to the coffee pot!
    Little Chick, take care of yourself. You still have next week to finish up and then can relax a bit! :-) End of 8th grade.
    My daughter came down sick this week, w/papers and assignments due before the end of next week. She says she has it under control, but who needs extra stress?
    Liking this soft, dreamy pick. Sweet dreams to us all tonight.

    Smoky Rose says:

    8th grade? my word! I knew she was young, but….. a child jewelry prodigy…….holy cow!

  27. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    8th grade? I’m floored – utterly floored. I imagined mid-way thru high school, at least!………wow. she has to worry not about her future. If she stays on the straight and narrow, with her talent, sky’s the limit….. whoa, floored.

  28. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Pretty sure that’s what she said the other day. Quite a talented Little Chick, huh?

  29. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m so impressed – I’m speachless…
    makes sense, she was talking about a spelling test one day – that would be grade school…. what was I doing in 8th grade? watching Flinstones, I think…
