Roller Coasters of Fibromyalgia

The good days happen a lot more than they used to.

But I've found that I rarely just pop on here and say "I'm having a great day today!" When I'm having a really bad pain day, I sometimes tell you.

Then I get the responses like "whoa, you're having a lot of bad days" which simply isn't true. I actually have a lot more good days than most people realize. Compared to a lot of my Fibro friends, I'm very blessed to have more good days than bad days.

I don't want any of you to have a misperception of me. And it wasn't until this last time I posted about having a bad day that I realized I only post specifically about the bad days. You see the other stuff, my life photos and what not, my general joys and sorrows, but it just seems weird to get on here and say "today is a good day!"

I don't want it to seem like I'm complaining when I talk about the bad days. When I'm voicing my pain symptoms, it's my way of telling my story to others. But sharing about my good days, while positive, there's just not really a whole lot else to say. It'd be a really short, boring post.

Welcome to the roller coaster of my life.

So with all that... today was a good day. Not without it's pain & fatigue, but on the scale of my life, it was a very good day indeed.

And it included a super fun, delightful tea tasting over lunch with several of my good coworker friends. This place is really cool the way it's set up so that you can taste a variety of their teas before you buy. For someone who generally doesn't like tea, I was even able to find a couple I really liked and bought!! It's loose tea, which I've never had before, but it was really interesting. I'm looking forward to brewing my first batch. :)
