If the world was fair we would all share great health

Life is suffering.  That is something I always retained from learning a little buddism.  And it is true in many ways from poor health to emotional strain.  No one said it was easy.  And no one gets out alive.  So I may have my ailments and they suck, others have theirs and they likely suck as well.  My man has his IBS and his stomach problems.  A friend at work likewise has similar problems to my man but maybe from a different cause.  And I do not envy them with their abdomenal complaints, as I know that is so not fun.  My father has FMS and did have his fair share of emotional problems dealing with it.  So yes, we all suffer or will in the future.

I noticed a skin abnormality a few months ago.  A large freckle the size of a dime, two smaller ones about twice the size of a normal freckle all in the same area and they certainly were not there before.  I have been thinking about asking my doctor about it but keep forgetting.  My bf says maybe it is skin cancer and I said maybe and isn't that damn ironic, because I loath the sun.  Here is the thing even though I have FMS, asthma, hypothyroidim and chronic migraines that does not mean I cannot get any other number of ailments.  You'd think it having all those illnesses would mean you ought not be able to get more, but that is just not so.  We do not get a decade imunity.  So in the end we all suffer with something or more than one something.  So maybe I do have skin cancer or some other condition, so I promised myself I will get it checked out, cause you never know.

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.

__ 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…
