Stash Is Inventoried! Wooohooo!

I did it. I went thru it ALL! Yea Baby!! I guess from my last post it was easy to see I was feeling pretty crappy & depressed while doing it (sorry to whine so much). But late last night, after I was done, I felt so hugely, insanely relieved! I found things I had totally forgotten I ever had!

It was great to take the time to become reacquainted with it all again and to put things where I know I can find them. My stuff is grouped by what it's for (sock, felting) and the rest is by color and/or novelty. Now I don't have a bag here and there, or stuff tucked in this corner or that. I also have about 5 bags of stuff to go to the thrift store. I feel so much better. Just wanted to say I'm not having that nervous breakdown after all.

I am getting ready to take a nap about now, I only got about 3 hours of sleep (5 until 8) and I had to get up to go take that diagnostic test for my muscles. It's a Nerve Conductive Survey and it measures my muscle and nerve whatever. I got zapped with shocks up and down my legs and poked with a needle (in several places! ). Let me tell you, not the worst I've had done, but not something I ever care to do again.

He did say that my Doctors will let me know the results but that he could tell me that there doesn't appear to be any damage with either. Now I'm sure that Rheumy Dr will just shrug his shoulders again and tell me I'm fine I bet. I see my regular Dr on the 14th. At least I know she knows my pain is real. I'm going to beg her to give me an elephant tranquilizer to make me sleep. I'm getting desperate.

Happy Friday!

Congratulations Ms. Stash Inventoriar! :) Hopefully the rheum. doc will get smart about the fibro...have you tried Lyrica yet...its the fibro drug? It made my mom so dizzy she couldn't stay up. Have a good nap...I'm doing that too today. I'm so exhausted today I can't move. Doing laundry and trying to take down some Christmas stuff and ornaments.

Just like Christmas all over again isn't it.
And a little embarrassing too as I found out.

Good news about the test. No nerve damage is very good news.
Sleep would be a good thing, our bodies cannot repair themselves if we do not get at least 7 hours.
I can sympathize... I don't sleep much either.

Glad to hear you finished the inventory. It's great when you find something you didn't know you had. I especially like it when it involves money. :D

Hope you get some relief and sleep soon!
