It was a dark and stormy night... and a damn good thing because it was damn hot in the house

It was pouring out last night. As well as being hot all day. Made for one of those days were I just was sore in too many places to contemplate but glad for the storm so it cooled down the house. It rained well into the night so I missed the meteor shower... seems like anytime that sort of thing happens we inevitably have cloud coverage and rain. I did sit outside and soak up some cool air though. And let Charlie out as well... as he the only cat not at all afraid of thunder or storms in the least and insists he come out with you. Obviously the weather wasn't great on the brain ball but such is life... I do enjoy a good storm though, and migraines are going to come either way. And it was a fantastic storm. Lightning all over the place and impressive thunder. Got a shot of lightning where it is bright as day... can't at all tell it is in fact lightning.

It was a dark and stormy night... pissing rain

Is that a speeding bullet? No, just a rain drop.

I like to take flash shots of rain and mess with filter and contrast to see the trails.
And Charlie... right at the edge of the rain line.

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…
