Crappy Day #2

I know, I know.. 2 posts in one day! The other was scheduled. This one is not.

I recently posted about being in remission and how things have settled down significantly, overall. But I do still have flares.

Today is a perfect example of that.

Last weekend it was approaching 30°C, low-mid 80°F.. Went swimming twice in my sister’s pool.. Absolutely gorgeous day!

Selfies last weekend while swimming – Gorgeous weather!

Monday, had a brief high of 18°C, 64°F.. that’s a big jump for my body.. & then Tuesday, it was overcast & the mercury dropped a bit more.. but I was still ok. Pain crept up asmidge, but nothing I couldn’t function through.

Wednesday, it stayed cool and it rained on & off all day.. By midnight, my body started to acknowledge the weather shift.. The increased pain & my own wonky sleep schedule had me up all night, with only able to get about 4 hours sleep.

Thursday, crappy day #1, I’m toast between the shift & the lack of sleep, my pain levels have skyrocketed. This is despite efforts on my part to help reduce the effects my environment has on my body.

Friday, crappy day #2, is worse.. I didn’t get a decent night’s sleep, so no REM or healing sleep to help me improve, to heal, to recover. My pain level right now is a 6/10.. Pure Fibromyalgia pain.

Chrinic pain isn’t very pretty, is it?

I only hope I can get better sleep tonight. Wish me luck!
