Bye Bye Happy, Hello Pain and Nausea

I still had a fairly decent day, but the pain and nausea overtook my super awesome happy feeling.  I took a 2 hour nap and got back up a few hours ago so that I could attempt to function and cook supper and all that good stuff.  The pain is quickly approaching the unbearable stage and the nausea doesn’t want to go away.  I would just puke and get it over with, but I took my meds and don’t really want to puke them up. I never imagined my life would turn out like this, but here I am.  Oh well, it could be worse.  My life isn’t anything I ever wanted it to be, but it doesn’t mean that it can be something awesome. 

I probably need to go to bed before my body completely malfunctions on me.  Tomorrow is a new day.  It could be a good day, bad day or a combination like today!  *Gentle Hugs*

I'm in Pain...But I'm HAPPY!

I’m in a flare today and normally that would be a bad thing, but not so much.  I’m in a fantastic mood and it’s overriding the fact that it feels like an elephant is sitting on my shoulders.  I just woke this way today and when I can wake up happy despite the pain and other symptoms then it’s a good day.  I hope it stays this way.

Happiness is essential when you have Fibromyalgia or any other chronic illness.  When you’re truly happy, it makes it so much easier to deal with all the bad things that come with the illness.  It makes it easier to laugh at the insane things that are happening to your body and mind.  I know that being happy is sometimes easier said than done, but it’s worth working on.  Find something or someone that gives you a reason to wake up in the morning.  You’ll see the difference.

I hope that everyone can be happy for at least a little while today.  *Gentle Hugs*
