Crappy Day #2

October 2, 2020

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!

Where Have I Been?

August 5, 2012
In bed, for the most part.. Seriously.. The fog’s been thick and the healing sleep has been damn near extinct, thus the pain’s been rather nasty.
Doc takes me off my sleep meds & has me double up on my melatonin while he waits for blood results. This switch did squat to help.
So the bloodwork comes in & there’s not much there that’s a problem except thyroid levels are still too high. So up the thyroid meds & try new sleep meds..
New meds are a psychiatric medication. They made me sleep all damn night & most of the day! And none of that sleep was good sleep.. I have to thank God for the patches. & the pain pills I’m on.. So they psych meds last about a week & he put me on a medication I am already on, prescribed by my gp.. So back on nothing at all new & taking pain meds & oodles of melatonin..

So here I am.. Back on the clonazepam, waiting for it to work & over doing life yesterday was not the best choice.. Hope the current sleep meds kick in & help.. My body just wants to finally feel improved, preferably w/o extra pills..

My SO has decided that he wants us to go from hosted wordpress to unhosted wordpress..  So, if there are some glitches this afternoon and evening, that’s why and you have my apologies..  There will also be a new look I’m sure, so keep an eye out! 🙂
