I love all these men, that want to chat, just to find where u r from, if u r married, etc..

They probably don't even have anything wrong with them IMO

I've blocked soany men in the last 2-3 days, wow.

I talked to one person regularly on here and this is supposed to be a support app???

Where's the support???

Now I know why I stay away and only check in periodically, it is me, and I knew it.

After some advice

A couple of weeks ago I restarted trampolining after 15 months off due to covid. The sessions have been FANTASTIC and I am so happy to be back. Unfortunately I believe its having a knock on effect on me and I don't quite know what to do.

I have non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis, a form of inflammatory arthritis that predominantly affects my spine. I believe trampolining is causing an increase in pain in the days after which is manageable. The bigger problem is my sleep. I feel amazing after training and am buzzing. I get a lot done in the afternoon afterwards because I have energy. (Tramps is 12-2pm on Saturdays). Sundays I've been sleeping in because I've crashed and then having a chilled out day. I then go to bed a little late at 10pm ish (9pm is ideal for work). Monday morning I'm a bit tired but get up OK and have energy like normal. After lunch I get sleepy but push through. Then as soon as work finishes I CRASH. I crash and sleep, like full deep should-be-the-middle-of-the-night sleep. Waking up is hard. Then of course I'm wide awake and buzzing again and can't sleep at night (cue posting this at 1am). Last week this continued for several days. If I try to stay awake in the evening I am a total zombie and can't cook dinner or do anything. It feels like my body clock shifts forwards by a few hours.

Has anyone else experienced this type of reaction to exercise? Did it get better with time? Any tips on managing it?

I'm going to try a lunchtime nap tomorrow to see if that can help reset my sleep schedule. It's sometimes difficult to fit in though as I have a lot of meetings atm, and a 10 or 30 min nap just isn't enough. I need at least 1hr30 to get a full sleep cycle in. I did that last week when I eventually fit it in on Thursday and it helped. It's not a sustainable option long term though :/

anyone sleep better durring the day than at night? #sleepproblems #DelayedSleepPhaseDisorder #SleepWakeDisorders #daytimefatigue

I feel like this is really uncommon on here to talk about, but I believe I have delayed sleep phase dissorder. Basically my typical sleeping hours are 3-noonish. sometimes on the weekend (like tonight) i'll even stay awake until 4 or 5 in the morning and will awake in the afternoon. I've tried to adjust my sleep but nomatter what it always goes back to this because I simply cannot sleep until atleast 3 in the morning. and i need a solid 8 hours or I will be so fatigued when I do wake up. Anybody else like this out there? i just wish I had some feiends to talk to when I am awake (at nighttime) honestly.

Has anyone had success with Gabapentin for Fibromyalgia symptoms? Any negative reactions to Gabapentin?

Hi all. I’ve just been recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia even though I’ve suspected it for the last 4 years. My Rheumatologist prescribed me Gabapentin but I’m deathly afraid because of the possible side effects. I’ve been on Lyrica about 3 years ago, which did nothing for my pain and made me a total zombie. I couldn’t focus, was extremely fatigued, and lost things (I lost my wedding ring, of all things!!) :’(
