Sometime you just have to get out of the house...

I took my man out for neon bowling. Neon bowling is in the dark, so I rather like that. And I like bowling. What I don't like is the whack load of pain I am in the next day. Crippling pain. Hard to walk pain. FMS pain. It will last a good week, that is what I know from previous experiences. It was worth it though. To get out and do something. To spend time with my man. Sometimes you should get out and do something fun even though you know the price you will pay for it.

When I woke up today, aside from the nasty muscle pain throughout my body I was also blinded by an overpowering migraine aura. It was black, swirling, flickering throughout my vision. I kept rubbing my face thinking something was there, because my forehead tingled. I could barely see at all, so I ended up trying to go back to sleep. Later when i got out of bed the aura was still very intense, making everything distorted. But the migraine itself was not that bad, maybe moderate pain wise. Crazy how just an aura can prevent you from doing anything.

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…
