Fibromyalgia

I haven't had a flare like this in ages. Everything hurts so much. I came into work, hoping to distract myself, but it isn't working. The pain is more distracting than the work. Not shocking, I suppose.


I slept 13 hours last night. And I'm still exhausted. I had even taken my sleep medication, which I thought would help me get a restorative sleep. No dice. Fibro is dumb.

Now, as I mentioned, I'm at work. And I keep having to explain to people why I look and feel like death. I don't care to share this sort of information about myself, but having to explain what Fibro is and how it works a billion times is a little wearing.

I'm probably just grumpy because I'm tired and hurting.

Anyone out there have fibro? How do you deal with flares?

I mostly shut down and sleep (if I'm not at work). Sometimes stretching/yoga helps a little. Can't really do downward-facing dog at my desk though. Not without getting a lot of weird looks. Hooray open workspace.

My head is foggy. I'm sure this is just about the worst (and most boring) blog post I've done so far. And that's saying something. :P

Perhaps, once the pain subsides, I can write a legitimate post about the effects of Fibromyalgia.
