Dyed my hair and also I need a keeper

I dyed my hair today... and it took a long time to choose This day. I had to choose a day where I did not wake up with a migraine and also was not cooking hot such that the smell of the stuff would make me want to vomit off the get go. Unfortunately it is a migraine trigger so it isn't a fun venture. But I got it done. Takes too boxes at the length and thickness I have going on right now. But I just don't want to get it cut. Well I really do... it is too damn hot to have it this long but I don't want to Pay to have it cut. And I have the two boxes handy... so there you go. However, migraines being such as they are and my gimpy hand being such as it is... I never seem to do a good job a dying my hair. I mean the pictures look fine but a close inspection and there are some interesting highlights of my own color in there which is brown and, er, white... I'm just going to pretend that was intentional and leave it at that.
Nice side view here to see how damn long it is.

It is almost dry here and it is a sort of a auburn color.
 Anyway the dye did trigger a migraine but I was on my way to one anyway... but the smell of the stuff Lingers forever. So that was not fun all day on the stomach. Or now. Even though I washed the hell out of it and had a shower.

So I also had an appointment with a nurse for my depo shot that I decided on a whim to drive myself to... which I decided to do because I need my mom to drive me to my doc to pay for a form crap and don't want to abuse the fact I need someone to drive me Everywhere. And this is in town, so i thought I can do this, right? Sometimes you forget how much it sucks to drive with a migraine. I drove fine, aside from the fact the vertigo did kick in and it made things a little wonky.

I get there I go in and the nurse calls me and asks for the depo vial. Well... because I had a migraine and was all spiny I forgot I Needed to get that first. Totally zoned right out. So I say, I will be Right back. I go over to the pharmacy, which thankfully is right in the same wee mall and order the damn depo. While I am waiting I realize that nice short drive really had kicked in the vertigo because I cannot even stand without jerking every couple of seconds as the ground lurches, like I am drunk. Not extreme thankfully, like the ground is falling away from me... but like it is unstable and I need to adjust every second. I didn't like that for sure because forgetting the depo and then the whole vertigo thing And the migraine really kicking in all signs I really need to get home.

I get the depo go back and get my shot. I get back in my car and drive back home and this migraine is really making itself known now. It really does not like the whole motion thing at all. I get to my driveway and have to back in. Not all the way... because I have hit the house before so my spouse drives it back for me, but part of the way. I realize I can't seem to do this. I keep going at the wrong angle, or can't determine how close I am to our lawn or the neighbours driveway and keep adjusting and then keep going at the wrong angle... did this at least fifteen times. Finally I get out and realize I am completely in our driveway so it was just my perception, but at least I got it straight.

I go to the front of the house and turn the knob.

It is locked. Of course it is. I came out the back. I get my key out to unlock it.

It doesn't fit in the lock. This puzzles me a great deal. So I keep trying.

I realize that isn't my house key. I look at the key closely. I have No idea what that key is actually for. I recognize it. Have no idea what it is for.

Fine. I go in the back door, which I should have in the first place. And take my migraine abortive.

End of story. And this is clearly why I need a keeper. And why I should not drive. The migraine, the auras and the vertigo all kick in and my brain shuts down... I get confused about space and then just confused. I have no idea why keys and locks puzzle me so or why I keep trying the wrong key in the same lock, but I have done this before. I'm still not sure what that key is for to be honest.. my spouse thinks it might be a work key, in which case I should not even have it.

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…
