Brain foffy day

I was all raring to go this morning, a tad tired from not sleeping at night, but you get that boost once sleep deprivation kicks in. And the morning went well. I did awesome, as usual. Then a migraine hit, so I aborted it, which worked well. But my brain never recovered. So the rest of the day it was calling people by the wrong name, mispronouncing words every second sentence, and this inability to find the word I was looking for. Migraine brain lag all the way. But again, I have no qualms about using abortives and rescue meds to treat migraines, when it works well, which makes me a happy camper. And only the brain falling asleep part remains, and that is nothing that cannot be worked around, unless complex math is needed, then not the best person to ask.

The reason I did not sleep all night is because I have this intense pain in my stomach. I suspect ulcers from all the evil anti-inflammatories. My doc gave me something to settle it down, but it is very painful at night. Its either that, or my appendix fell out.

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
