Feel like my brain is rejecting my head...

And yes in a brainless sort of way where I want to spell and my brain refusing to understand what words are. But also in a migraine pain sort of way. Like my brain just wants to run screaming from my head. Jump ship. But here is the thing... it is the cause of the problem. So it has no cause for complaints in the equation here. If anything the rest of my body should be ticked at my brain.

It is in fact the pain part of the party that has been getting to me lately due to weather fluctuations. Damn weather just can't be stable lately so the migraines are quite variable in intensity and can hit quite early unfortunately. But last few days the visual auras have also been rather warpy. Interfering with my capacity to read and That, my friends, irks the hell out of me. Reading is my favorite pain distraction and I have the capacity to do so with a great deal of pain... up to the upper levels in fact, where pain begins to interfere with all level of functioning. Then I am screwed, but then, screwed to do anything. But when your eyes are all shifting, warping and the visual snow is intense it can be difficult to focus on worse. Plus a lot of halos and double vision. When the auras get bad it is never One visual effect, it is more than a few smooshed together. But the whole field warping effect is the problematic one.

So clearly my brain is rejecting the rest of my body. It is failing to accept it's role. Failing to take. Need a new one.

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…
