There are certain migraine related blogs I follow and there are days I will hit them all to check out what is going on in the inner universe of other people's migraine afflicted mind.  Well, because I have some time on my hands, I've been blog reading and it has come to my attention that some of my favs are stagnant.  Whether this is because blogging is no longer an interest to them or they have an awesome migraine treatment and therefore nothing migraine related to say, I am not sure.  But it is wierd.  Nonetheless, I am going to have to cull them from my blog roll cause I keep clicking on them... but they will be replaced by other new and interesting blogs I locate.

Feel free to mention some.  Also feel free to mention some philosophy sites, since I check those out in my other blog.  I admit I like to blog, as it is a link to others with the same interests... so I have my main blog which is all funny pics, home pics and interesting science or phil stuff, then there is my creative writing blog which is all about writing, obviously.  But I will always be the Brainless Blogger simply because this would be my most active blog.

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.

__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness

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…
