Quick Crepes (HG Strict, GF, SF, LC)

Quick Crepes (HG Strict, SF, GF, LC)These are AMAZING! And so so easy! Because of the amount of egg in there, you also don’t need more than one or two, so even though they’re thin, they’re filling :)

This picture is of one crepe, cut in half. One crepe fits in a large frying pan, a little bigger than a regular dinner plate :)

I have been having these for breakfast instead of the breakfast smoothies I usually have, they’re just so easy I didn’t even think to post the recipe, but I gotta share the fun with ya!

Insomnia and sleep Tips when you have Fibro

*If you have serious sleep issues, please see your doctor! There are very real dangers if you have sleep apnea, please ask your doctor about this!*

I take Benadryl Night tabs and 3 Magnesium Citrate every night and sleep like a rock!

Here’s some more from some of you:
~Magnesium Malate
~Melatonin (make sure to use the pill-swallowing kind, not the one that dissolves under you tongue- that one has mint)
~Turn off all your devices an hour before bed so your eyes aren’t being hit by that bright light before bed. At the very least, turn down the back light on any device you use in the evening.
~hormone treatment for menopause
~doctor prescribed meds.

Tomorrow is Fibromyalgia Awareness day!

fibromanicDid you know that tomorrow is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day? Well, it’s so important because WAY more people have fibro than you know. And the saddest part is all those who are just told that the pain and fatigue, etc are all in their heads.

We need more awareness so people can be more supportive and kind with the people they know who have it.

I have fibromyalgia and I’m not ashamed to say so. It is a really difficult disease to have. And I want to share why in the hopes that you can share this with someone you know, or everyone you know!

And yep, I can suck it up, tough it out, put my big girl panties on. But seriously? Why can’t I just ignore it all?! LOL! 😀Mothers Day 2014
