Fall walk by the lake

My spouse had been on holidays for the week of his birthday so been spending some time with him. We went to dinner and then took an evening stroll by the lake in town. I want to get some good walking time outside in this nice weather we have in Fall. This not too hot in the day, with nice coolness at nigh. No wide fluctuations. No sudden storms when it is hot that are a massive trigger. It is a lovely season trigger wise. And I need to get that nice exercise that doesn't really aggravate my brain if I do it when the sun is not at its peak. It was a lovely walk. A bit shorter than usually since I was very sore from painting the bathroom. I will blog about that later but the pain in the body but mostly for walking the knees, ankles and back. But I thought a walk might prevent them from getting worse... sort of relax it out maybe. Got some nice dark pictures with good contrast over the water as the sun was setting. And it was nice to walk with my spouse as well.

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…
