Cats love #spoonies

I had some fun taking a picture for the Spoon challenge here with Franky. He apparently loves spoons.I just thought, hey, I'm pretty useless today but getting some comfort from my cat. Charlie had been just in a mood for a good snuggle. I thought what a good Spoonie picture that would be... because it is a mood boost or relaxing or comforting to have a pet. Soothing when you are in pain. Amusing with their antics as well. I just got my spoon and decided to go for a simple picture. Maybe a nice stroke across the fur with a spoon and snap... there you go.

Well, Charlie was adverse to that idea, likely because he is also adverse to being combed.

But Franky here was Intrigued. Then he was all 'I have got to rub my head on that' and then 'lets try eating it'. Sort of hard to get a good picture when he is all over the spoon like that. So I then had several to play around with. I chose one for the Spoon challenge and these are some of the others.

Ah, Frank, how you amuse me so. Except when I am sleeping and I get the old paw to the face game and I have to play dead so he moves on.

What's this?

What IS this?

OOOoohh yeah that is the spot right there.
Tastes... spoonie

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…
