My new #freelancer website

So here is my new Freelance writing site The Hermit. I had to make a new one because the old one was not working for me so for a bit I was just using my writing blog. But when I was on long term leave I could not make any income so mostly I was doing low pay or for free work. Time to up my game as it were.

Not to say that I will not occasionally add other work to my portfolio that is for free if it adds something to it. I was thinking of doing just that. Shows experience and adds a little something for people to look at on the site.


So hopefully this will add a little something for people to review when I am looking for paying work. I have a few things in print on my portfolio so that is something at least. And my regular online gig as well.


This is my plan since being tossed by the insurance company. To pick up more freelance writing. Article writing and blogging. That sort of thing. Then something for a baseline income to cover the rest. It is the best idea I have at the current time based on my skillset. Research and writing skills. Plus because my pure enjoyment of it. That would be an added bonus really. Ideally I would find something in the FM and migraine community, but that would be the icing on the cake for me. My perfect scenario.

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.




GENERAL
__ 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

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…
