So sick

Well I am sicker than a dog still. Way, way worse in the morning and obviously have not had time for that ulcer med to kick in yet. It is going to be a rotton day tommorow, as that pain is intense... a sort of elecrical chest pain, sore stomach and a painful knot on my left side. But I have to go to work, because I did not today... I thought about sleeping off the more intense morning pain, going for my blood work and then going to work, but once I was able to sleep I slept till 1:00 and then still felt horrid and unable to even go to the lab until I could get a lift. So, I really owe my boss... as in, by monday when this ulcer med kicks in and my thyroid settles down, I will have to maintain perfect attendence... even if I have a killer migraine, I will go to the ER and then go to work. I can't stand this guilt of not being able to work, disappointed my stressed out boss and irking everyone else. I tried to pretend I was not in as much pain as I was on Wednesday, but it was bad, and when I got home I curled up on the couch and did not move for the rest of the night. Because of the abortives and the T3s I am able to go to work with a migraine, and more willing because there is the possibility I will be able to handle it during the day, and going to work makes me feel better about myself. But with this stomach pain, and other symptoms, I cannot do anything and anything I would take would make it so much worse... cause right now it is just pain, without the stomach flu hell that happens with anti-inflammatories. I so dont want to make it worse, so just want it to go away.

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…
