Subject: How long does it take you to come round in a morning?

Hi all, was chatting with jill about not feeling brill in the morning.. so tired that we couldn't be bothered to get dressed till afternoon. And wondering if you have trouble in a morning. Many a time I've walked my dog with my nightie still on and a pair of track suit bottom and a top (no bra either!!) lolol. Any of you done similar. I'm not good for much untill about 2 o'clock.

good topic Lynne, I almost feel like ive got a hangover, never use to feel this bad, takes me couple hours to come around, only reason im on this now is cos my kids will be on it all day, and didnt get a chnace last nite cos they r on it till late! I hate feeling like this, I have to take kids to skool everyday, skool is a drive away about 12 miles there and back... at least when the ^ weeks hols comes I dont need to bother to get dresses until 12ish.... thing is tho Lynne, sometimes its too much effort to wash, LOL...I keep putting it offf, but once ive had a hot shoer I feel brill, but its just bothering in the first place...find it a big effort.... LOL if I didnt have a gorjus fellla, I wouldnt bother to wash ever again PMSL LOL...... (well not daily like I do now) lol....

I know exactly where you are all coming from. I am so stiff first thing in the morning and i have to drag my bum along the length of the bed to get to the bedroom door so i have something to hold onto, or i just loose my balance and topple over on the floor. This really worries me with having stairs as loosing my balance is getting more and more often. When i finally manage to get down stairs i make a cuppa tes and take my pain meds then have to sit down till they start kicking in a bit. Most the day is spent dragging my feet along so i don't go out much. I have a car but just getting to it from my house is too painful and awkward so i don't bother much. I know what you mean about still wearing bed clothes. If theres nobody available to go the shop and i need to go i just put some jogging bottoms on and tuck my pyjama top in them (no bra too hehe) and stick a big coat over the top, (such an attractive look, not lol). Also i'm the same with washing myself, so i just use face wipes to clean myself, unless i have a bath, but i can't pull myself out of the bath so can only have one of those if my partner is home, so he can lift me out. Tell you what i am really lazy at, or hate having to do coz it hurts and is such an effort, it's brushing my teeth. I find it such hard work as i have to move joints in awkward and sore positions and press on hard while scrubbing which hurts the imflammation in my hands, elbows n shoulders Sometimes (read most the time lol), i don't even bother to get dressed at all and just wear my pyjama's, night gown n slippers all day and then occasionally i'll look at myself and think "what a slob you are Amber, get a grip".

It really gets me down and frustrates me at times. My mind is willing but the body just isn't. I wonder how i ever managed regular 13 hour shifts on my feet all day when i worked.
But we just have to get on with it i guess, nowt else we can do. I think to myself there no way i'm letting this thing beat me but more and more often these days it is starting to.

I only just found this forum yesterday and it's nice to be able to talk to others and see others in the same position who understand and we can all have a right good moan with each other, or give any advice and tips. Seems a really friendly and coxy little place.

Take care all of you. :o)

Aaawwwhhh (((((((((((((big hugs)))))))))) emma think most of us can relate to what you say. The thing I found is that people around you can't grasp how tired and in pain you are. We look healthy enough that people think you are just plain lazy NOT. Take care
