Sick, Fibro Flare, & Thankful

Last night I got weird sick.

It was pretty random. I was feeling off with some Fibro stuff throughout the day, but otherwise pretty good. I'd swung by a couple of friends houses after work to help bring them some cheer, and then headed home. Upon arriving home and the adrenaline wearing off, my Fibro pain was flaring up like crazy.

Later I realized it was not all Fibro related, as I began to get delirious and totally crazy. I don't remember all of the details but at one point I realized I was laying on the bathroom floor screaming for Tim. It was awful and so bizarre.

Tim helped get me set up in the spare bedroom that has a spare TV around 9 or so, that way if I got bored or couldn't sleep, I could prop myself up easily and watch. It was really helpful to help me not focus on how delirious I was feeling {which was making me freak out and have anxiety}, and be able to fall in and out of sleep.

Unfortunately, I had a really fitful night of sleep, tossed & turned like crazy, was exhausted, had really vivid dreams that I woke up feeling were totally real, spilled my water all over the bed & myself at 3 am, and finally managed to get several hours of sleep just before it was time to decide whether or not work was in the picture for me today.

It was definitely not. I slept some more, checked in at work about some urgent stuff, slept again, and finally awoke around 11 feeling better. After lunch I was feeling much better and spent the rest of the afternoon working from home.

And then randomly around 7 or so tonight, the same wave of weirdness fell over me. Nausea, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, horrific pain, etc. I'm starting to think it must all be Fibro related after all. Oh Lord, get me through this flare-up!

I'm so thankful for Tim's help last night in taking care of me, I could not have gotten through it without him. Thank you sooo much honey!

I've been wanting to post for this year's Invisible Illness Awareness Week, but I just haven't had it in me yet. Please find other information about this here at the Invisible Illness website.

Hmm, I've never had any fibro symptoms like this before, could it be side effects from one of your medicines? Feel better!
