I think I know why I'm feeling so awful at the moment. I think I'm in the middle of a full-on fibro flare. This is the first time that the Crohn's has been under control enough for me to notice the fibro properly, and ow! it hurts. I'm stiff, too, and the fatigue is pretty hard to cope with. Still, it's better than Crohn's!!!!!
Today I want to give myself a physical spruce-up. I have multiple medical appointments on Monday, and I'd like to get the winter fuzz off my legs before then so I don't feel embarrassed when the rheumatologist starts poking at them
. I'd also like to shape my eyebrows, exfoliate and moisturise, and give myself a manicure and a pedicure.
I also have to (yes, must) go down the street and buy a train ticket so I can get to Monday's appointments. Will probably grab a few groceries while I'm at it and, if I'm really good, spend a little time at the Eisteddford and see what calaesthenics is, because I've never seen it performed before.
I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't cook or freeze the meat yesterday (was feeling too terrible), so I'll need to chop it up for the cats, and think of something to give myself for lunch, because I was planning to eat that meat. *sigh*
Oh yes, and do the basic chores: change sheets on bed, do dishes, 15 minutes tidying, no gardening because it's too cold! And iron the jumper I want to wear on Monday, probably while watching the family movie tonight. Brownie points if I phone someone and read the paper; even more if I do a bit of pricing and studying.
Have a great day, everyone!
