Sitting.. A challenge?

Sitting ….. A challenge?

I go to bed so very early….as the wind howls and.the sleet comes down I awake again.wth? Every night after sleeping two hours I am awake. Why? Pain! My heating pad turns off and the pain turns on. The challenge today is sitting – the easiest task to sit, but no. .I worked at a desk not my own today . I was constantly readjusting to be comfortable. The people there don’t know I have this problem and I like it that way-tho I missed the concern from my work family it was nice to be normal for a bit. I went to a volleyball practice tonight and to watch I had to sit on the gym floor. I stood almost panicked knowing getting down I could do but I was worried how will I get up and could I walk once up. The simple task of sitting now involves planning and consequences. I had a another good day. Tonight-hip pain and back spasms from a chair and the cement floor . Heating pad is back on….what is worse than sitting laying down. Off to dream!

Made it through the Flare Up!

Made it through the Flare Up!

My flare up started Sunday – March 13th – and lasted through the 18th. I went swimming Tuesday-Saturday (twice on most days). I started a new medication – Gabapentin/Neurontin. I spoke to several of my new “Fibro” Friends. They too were having issues last week due to the weather changing. On Sunday, I woke up with the start of the headache ~ and back spasms ~ I headed straight for the hot bath (with lavender) ~ I still woke up today with the normal stiffness but – It’s managable.
I saw a website with Fibro merchandise. The best one was a T-shirt that said “I have Fibro ~ Fibro doesn’t have me”.
Today is just so much better. Love these days.
