My new app to help keep me organized

I have so many things i need to get done that I keep forgetting to do. And recently I forgot entirely to go to my shrink appointment.

And this is how I end up feeling. Frantic laughter with all these reminders, in different places, that are not even working to remind me I might add.

And I need reminders. With this brain fog I forget these things with surprising ease. Forget what day it is. Forget what day of the week it is. Forget when that appointment is for. Forget that I have a list of things to do until it is too late to do any of them. Might remember I have one to do but not the several I actually have to do.

I have tried more than one planner on my iPhone but I need easy to use. Easy to input. So that I will use it at that moment I need to ... lest I forget to input it later, which happens. Often. So real easy to input is ideal. Some are not. They are awesome with a lot of features and complexity but easy to input,... not in the least. So I wait till I have a moment to get it in there. And that is all it takes for me to forget to put it in there. It is nice if it can be used on the computer and iPhone because then I can be working on the computer and get these alerts or I can add more alerts I may need for the next day when I have my phone on me.

Anyway I finally found one that I am trying out now. So far I like it because it is quite simple. Simple works great from imputing. It has list categories which you can add to and then you can make your notes into each of those categories. You can of course create reminders. Add little subcategories and write additional notes. You can Star more important items and they show up in a separate folder. So far it is quite useful to me for appointments, calls, and a to-do list.

The app and program is called Wunderlist and worth checking out if you have been looking for a good simple planner like me. Here is a review of it for Android. I have it for iPhone, so clearly they have it for more than one smartphone.

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
