Mom's Diagnonsis

 "Hi! Friday mom went to see a new doctor who
specializes in Fibromyalgia (or fibro, which mom
has) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)."

 "Mom also has chronic myofascial pain
& bipolar disorder & depression."

 "Boy! It's a good thing she has us!! We tell her
when to lay down because she's doing too much."

 "The new doctor said that mom has severe fibro (she didn't know)
as well as CFS which she also didn't even know she had. He's
changed her medicine & therapy which should help. But now you know why we've been hit & miss this week! And may be in the future."

"We've been snoopervising mom making necklaces (and a couple of eyeglass holders, Zaphy is the best snoopervisor) to help relax. Someone said she should up them to sell online but mom has trouble getting out sometimes and she doesn't want anyone waiting on a package. A friend said they'd take them to the local Farmer's Market and if mom makes it to an SCA event she'll sell them there."
