My friends…this week is a struggle for me. I am apparently having a fibromylgia “flare”, and have been in a lot of pain since Sunday. At times I have trouble walking, and my hands are so stiff I can barely use them…typing is not easy. And then yesterday…the fog set in. I hadn’t experienced this symptom before. There is no other way to decribe it…the clarity of life isn’t quite there as it usually is, and my mind is fuzzy and at times a bit blank. It is a bizarre feeling, and an unsettling one. I’m not sharing this for a pity party, but to maintian a level of openness and honesty about my personal life here. It is therapeutic to discuss it in a public forum, and maybe someone out there might relate to what I’m going through. Of course as a result of being housebound I am feeling down, and not being able to meet my obligations right now is a hard pill to swallow. I am trying to focus on the positives and hope that this episode will subside soon.
Thank you all for your sweet support, online and off…it means so much.
