I had a Bad Day

I woke up feeling absolutely drained. Then our kitten got sick all over the place and me. So I called in work cause I wanted to make sure he was not sick sick, since had has been sick and he is just a wee kitten, but the boss did not think that was a reasonable excuse. So after I changed I went in all cranky and tired. Then the day was just one fricken thing after another. I set a vet apt for Charlie for the end of the day, the last appointment they had to get him checked out. To make sure he is not too sick, to make sure my other cats do not get it. But boss was not pleased I had not asked her about this. So I resechdualed it for the closest one that had to the very end of the day, which will be next monday... which is pushing it since he is a kitten and needs his shots. I had a killer migraine all day and was just out of sorts, the whole day sucked the big one, and because of the migraine these generally small things compounded until I was just plain cranky. Finally, I stay late to cover for the fact I came in early, finally get out of there to get to the pharmacy to get yet more meds, forgot my wallet for the one med I pay 3 bucks on for some reason and got crankier. Afterall that I come home cranky, tired with a whopping migraine that just won't freakin quit and my chest aches for some reason... and I think maybe I will have a heart attack and save myself the trouble of having to get up and do it all over again. But tomorrow I have that ultra sound thing from my stomach, in regards to the whole nausea thing I have going on. My boss was not pleased about that, so there goes my lunch hour, but I was going to use that anyway. I don't even feel like going to the thing, since it is out of town, so I have to drive there, do it, drive back, make sure I ready to go back to work and then drive to work all for a test that is not likely going to help any. My MRI is schedualled on july 20th.

Sometimes working with migraines blows. It is giving me Moods this time and I hate that.

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

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.

Getting through the high intensity pain flares #Blogboost

The crowded me out of the brain. Making no room for anything else. Distraction was impossible. You feel almost frantic with the pain but must be still.

What do you do? To get through it when you have no distraction?

I ask me this as I am really in the depths of a 9 level frantic level of pain right now. Hoping maybe some writing will be a distraction, but it isn't. As I said, the pain crowds the brain. I have to focus real hard to write and my head isn't clear. Too much pain to focus well. Things become quite difficult to do. 

I will say this: We cannot function. We have to just cope with the pain.

But we are Immersed in the pain, we what do we do?
We can and should rest and get through it the best we can. Here are some of the things I do to get through it.

Relaxation breathing: I can't meditate when in high levels of pain. It just makes me think about how much pain I am in. Just not a good idea. But I do do relaxation breathing. I close my eyes. I focus on my breathing. I even…
