Mid-Early Evening Update

It’s been rainy today, and I’m afraid that what we like to refer to as my mystery disease (most likely fibromyalgia and/or chronic fatigue syndrome) has reared its ugly head in the last few days. Therefore I’ve been mainly in bed sleeping or wandering around in pain. This isn’t how I wanted to spend days off, but I guess one day off is the trade in for having to call into work yesterday. I’m trying to be better about not complaining about this whole situation to others, but it’s damned hard not to. The even bigger challenge? Trying to find a spiritual answer and lesson in the midst of it all, let me tell you. I’m working on it, but I’m not quite there yet.

I’m off to read again. The boyfriend is good enough to me that tonight he’s fixing dinner, so all I have to do is lie in bed and read. Hope you’re having a wonderful day out there!

  1. First of all, I hope you start feeling better soon. And second of all, I can relate as I also have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue symdrome. Sadly, mine remains undiagnosed simply because the docs want to run too many other tests that I know I don't have. I have good days and bad days, too. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, it's a tough couple of ailments to deal with.


  2. Thank you, everyone! 🙂 I don't have a diagnosis yet, because we're just not quite there yet. I got a new doctor, but the state health insurance really stinks. I can't get in to see a specialist for the actual diagnosis unless tests come back just right, etc etc. It's a pain.


  3. I hear you on state health insurance. Ours is great here in Illinois except for the fact that almost no doctors seem to take it. I hope you feel better soon. I'm glad your boyfriend is helpful. 🙂


  4. I'm sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I have also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I found that a daily walk has helped me with the pain and has been giving me more energy. I hope it gets better soon.
