I got pain for Christmas... but lots of other things too so it is all good.

My morning...



Lack of sleep and pain just made me want to stay asleep. But Christmas and presents!

So bring it pain!


Okay don't bring it that much. I took a pain killer. It seemed to do nothing. Forget that then.


I will enjoy myself even if I have to walk grandma speed... and by that I mean slower than my grandma. Going oooh eee aaah eee that hurt, aah son of a monkey licker that smarted.

Because Presents!


No really. I love Christmas.

Yeah. That happy.

It was a good year. I went to visit my family last weekend and opened presents there as well as had dinner and played cards. We came home and opened more presents... because I could Not wait. Then we got some in the mail, a friend gave me one and my spouse bought me a few more for Christmas day! Yay! So today had more presents to open and another turkey dinner my spouse cooked for us.

So it wasn't pain free? I really didn't expect it to be. Would have preferred a Little Less pain to be honest but sometimes it is what it is.

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.

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…
