Another Challenging Day with Fibromyalgia

It’s Wednesday already and I’m hoping for a good day because I have a lot of work to finish.  You can’t really ever predict your days when you have Fibromyalgia.  The day can start out good and end horribly or it can be the other way around.  Then there are the days when you wish you never got out of bed.  My pain level is a 6 right now so I’m not sure how this day is going to go yet.  I hope things will improve as the day progresses, but right now it’s not looking good.  My hip has been killing me for a week now.  Add that to the rest of the crap Fibro throws at you and that makes for a challenging day.

Everyone has bad days whether you have a chronic illness or not so I’m going to try to maintain a positive attitude and see how it turns out. I hope everyone is having a good day/night! *Gentle hugs and lots of love*

Fibromyalgia: So Many Questions Left Unanswered

Having Fibromyalgia is like having an extremely annoying sibling that never leaves you alone.  It just keeps poking and irritating you every day, 24/7.  That’s probably putting it mildly.  It’s far more than just irritating.  It’s life-changing.  Sometimes I wish I could go back to the very beginning to see if I could see it coming.  I want to know if there were signs showing what the future would hold.  I was only 10 years old when the chronic pain started and from what I remember it seemed to just hit me out of nowhere.  This is something I think about all the time.  It drives me crazy sometimes.  A lot of people have Fibromyalgia because of car accidents or other trauma.  I wish I knew exactly why I have it.  Is it in my family somewhere down the line?  Is it because my father’s side of the family has a history of Rheumatoid Arthritis?  Is it because I got part of my pinky cut off when I was 5 or because I got my hand smashed between two cement poles when I was 10?  These are only a few of the questions I have that will probably never be answered.

I hope everyone is having a good day/night.  *Gentle Hugs and Lots of Love*
