Morning’s…Not like they used to be.

Morning’s…. Not like they used to be.

I used to love mornings. I would awake at 5:00 a.m. In addition to getting ready for work – I would do the dishes, pick up the house, make a breakfast for home and work, and get supper started. I would be at work early – after getting a wonderful hot chai tea and would have all of my work done (coffee made for co-workers) and ready to go before 7 a.m.
Now – It takes me up to an hour some days to get
out of bed. I don’t do any housework – bake occasionally – supper is not started – It takes all of my strength to convince myself to get out of bed. The aches run from my headache to my feet. Most of all the lower legs – hips and back.
It is a mind over matter and giving myself the ability to let someone more capable then I am guide my life. Whether it will be yoga, meditation, or God… I need to approach each morning with openmind, open hands and open eyes.

My thoughts on Fibro today

My thoughts on Fibro today

Fibro people are like snowflakes
Not one is the same.
Each person has their own aches
Searching to find what will help them like it’s some sort of game.
The aches and pains – “How did you hurt yourself?”
What did you do?
A physical therapist is where we should send you.
The tests show “You are fine”
Those are the words that are said
“Your imagining it” – “It’s all in your head”
They prescribe meds for the pain, anxiety, insomnia & to stop being sad
I feel like a yo-yo, Just want to scream and get mad.
First your mind is racing like a pinball game or as if you are trying to get through a maze
Then it goes blank and you are in a foggy daze.
Gone is the phone # you have dialed for years
You can no longer remember and it brings you to tears.
Ahhh, forgetfulness – you are told
It’s just a sign that you are starting to get old.
How can a syndrome that makes you feel every ache and pain so much
Also, create a numbness so that you can’t even feel your fingers to touch.
You are simply stressed out – you need to relax
If you are not careful you will have another Fibro attack.
So very exhausted – can’t keep your eyes open
Just a few hours of painless sleep is what you are hoping.
It hurts to move and it hurts to sit
It doesn’t matter either way you feel like s***.
Who cares if your stiff, sore and tired
Daily trips to the gym for a quick swim is required.
These are a few of the obstacles that can create the daily strife
If you have fibromyalgia in your life.
