Any spoonies on kik? Say hi if you are, my username is elphiemcdork. Am always looking for like minded spoonies to chat to when stuck in bed in pain!

Ugh.

Why is the #fibromyalgia tag always full of weightloss products and “Cure your fibromyalgia through exercise!/eating only green things!/taking these 47 supplements!”

Leave us poor hurty people in peace.

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.

Phone conversation with my mom

successwithme:

Me: I have to empty the…thing

Mom: What thing?

Me: The thing…*pointing in the direction of “the thing” even though I’m on the phone*

Mom:…

Me: The trash…the trash can…thing

Mom:…

Me:…

Me: The vacuum cleaner

I hear ya, the other day I went to say “I have to take the cat to the vet” but actually said “I have to take the dog to the zoo.” I don’t even have a dog.

Still ill, still flaring like a flarey thing…

After getting nowhere with the doc on Monday I’ve gone onto over the counter co-dydramol which isn’t massively working. The increased amatriptyline is just making me sleep all day and I’ve had horrible pain for 2 days that will not go away.

But yeah, sure, I don’t need better pain medication.

I, as a disabled person with chronic pain, am expected to endure pain up to a 9/10 before receiving any kind of relief, and even then many of us are labelled as drug seeking and still receive no help. How are we expected to live this way, let alone work?
