What Fibromyalgia Feels Like to Me Today

Did someone run me over with a Mack truck 10 times in my sleep?

Did someone pound a hammer into my head?

Did someone stab me in my gallbladder?

Did someone... wait... TMI {too much information}... I'll skip that one....

Did someone put an irritant in my eyes?

Did someone try to jump on my back?

Did someone rip off my shoulder?

Did someone pinch the bottom of my neck?

Did someone put hot coals on the bottom of my feet?

Oh yes, and then there are those pesky thunderstorms that kept me tossing and turning all night. And my TMI issue that also helped keep me from getting my deep zzzz's.

Did someone smoosh my hands?

Did someone burn off the tips of my fingers?

Did someone turn my brain into applesauce? You know you are having a bad Fibro day when you completely blank out. For example: I was staring at fractions and decimals, but couldn't think of the words fractions or decimals.

Today I am tired of pretending everything's okay when it's just not.

And the list could go on...and on....

Sending hugs and prayers, Rochelle. The weather really does mess us up. I will be so glad when the weather is more steady and not so erratic.

Pamper youself.... you deserve it.

This is timely. I woke up this morning and I would have sworn I had a goose egg on the very top of my head! Pretty sure I wasn't burglarized. :-p
