Day 9 #migraine Awareness #MHAM #MHAMBC Let us Win

 Hope Lets Us Win: Watch and listen to the video below of Brian McKnight's song "Win," and share with us which of the lyrics you believe.


Dark is the night
I can weather the storm
Never say die
I've been down this road before


I'll never quit
I'll never lay down
See, I've promised myself
That I'd never let me down, so

I'll never give up, never give in
Never let a ray of doubt slip in
And if I fall, I'll never fail
I'll just get up and try again

'I've been down this road before'. Many times. And many times I have survived. Many times more I will survive it again.


I'm not looking for place to show, I'm gonna win

Well, there is no winning with chronic pain for sure. No victory. No winning. Just the battle. 

No stopping now
There's still a way to go
Ohh, someway, somehow
Whatever it takes I know

There always seems to be a ways to go. One migraine down, an infinite number to go.And miles to go before I sleep.




I'll never give up, never give in
Never let a ray of doubt slip in
And if I fall, I'll never fail
I'll just get up and try again

I doubt. I doubt a lot. I believe I cannot cope in the long term. Believe I cannot take the pain one more moment.  To cope well I have to combat that doubt. Better when I never let it creep in at all. I can fall, I can break, but I can just get back up again. We all have troubles coping sometimes. It can be a difficult road to travel. But we just keep going.

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
__ 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…
