I am so, so tired. I've been rubbing my dry itchy eyes all day today. My right eye has been twitching for the last week or so, a sign of fatigue. And now the last two nights I've been throwing back the echinacea tea with lemon wedge. I feel like I'm getting a cold. I'm working hard to keep it away. I don't know where I can get a cold from when I am at home all the time. There's no one here giving me cold germs. Anyway, I'm just too exhausted to do much more than this post. Have a good night all.

Lordy, Lordy! The cold symptoms are gone but I am so freakin' tired. Slept from 1:30am to 4:00am, moved to the couch, then back up to bed at 5am. Hubby got up at 7, which is when I decided to read. I must have fallen asleep around 8 for a couple of more hours. What the heck is up with this inability to sleep? I am soooo tired!

@crazyhorseladycx My meds haven't changed. I take 1 1/2 sleeping pills (15 mg) but don't want to increase to 2 whole ones because I have too much trouble getting up in the morning. The only thing that has changed is trying to get to bed earlier (usually 3am) which is supposed to be a good thing. It could be the weather. When you have fibromyalgia and you don't have an answer, blame the weather.

sounds more like allergic attack I have itchy eyes watering , sneezing my fool head off, and tearing and runny nose not a cold as benadryl will stop it.

I generally have that problem with my eyes, which is why I don't like driving distances alone because inevitably I won't be able to see to drive back. My optometrist has me taking 1,000mg. of Omega 3 twice a day. It's helped but when there is something else at play, they still flare up pretty bad. I'm feeling better than I did two hours ago. The echinacea tea definitely helps.

Part of the problem is that I have not been sleeping well waking up 4 or 5 times a night and moving to the couch at one point. Hubby starts nights on Thursday. I'll probably get some good sleep this weekend.
