Are You Having Trouble with Blogger?

This post has little to do with fibromyalgia but a lot to do with writing my blog on the subject.

I have been having trouble with Blogger for a few months now and wanted to know if any of you are having trouble spots? Mostly it has been with my "followers" showing up on any of my blogs (I have 3) but what upsets me is when I can't post to another blog. 

It keeps asking me to sign in and I do, then it goes through the motions and tries to get me to sign in again.  I finally get that straightened out and now I can't get into my comments. Sheesh!

I am not one of their paying customers so that may have something to do with it. Not sure.
I did have a guy named Tony who fixed my followers at one time, but they disappeared again so I have no idea who any of my followers are on any of my blogs.

I am just rambling in cyberspace at this point hoping to catch a break and be able to post or comment once in a while.

Let me know if you have had any trouble.

Until Next Time :)

It' Been A While

It's been a while since I lasted posted and wanted to catch up tonight.

I started swimming again because walking around the neighborhood in Florida at this time of year is just too darn hot.  I tried to go slow. Not sure what that even means.  I just started swimming around and using my legs and arms and it felt great. I probably swam for around 20 minutes or so.

After a few days I thought, Wow! this is going to be a piece of cake. Wrong!  I woke up in the middle of the night and my arms and legs were screaming with pain.  Sort of like when you had growing pains as a kid only much stronger and constant. The only relief is to walk around and keep moving my arms.

I finally just took my pain meds (tramadol) even though they keep me awake because I can't take anything else.  I can't take aspirin or advil because I break out in hives.

So the night was a short one, and now I am extremely careful to not overdo in the pool, but I will not quit!  I will not give into this as long as I can keep moving.

Today was a great day and my pain is manageable again. 

Until Next Time :)
