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!

Hope the fibro flare is calming down. Wanted to let you know that your pact to call someone inspired me to call a friend today. Thanks! I needed the nudge.

I'm glad to know it inspired you, sammies.

I only meant to pop into the calisthenics but I was surprised at how good it was, got hooked, and ended up staying for a couple of hours. What a great sport that is. It was really inspiring to watch the girls. I'm glad I went, because I would have just sat at home feeling sore otherwise.

Anyway, I've changed the sheets, done the dishes and done a bit of tidying, exercised, read the paper, got the hair off the legs, done the eyebrows, exfoliating and moisturising. Have yet to fix the meat, but will. Haven't phoned anyone but hey, an afternoon out is just as good, if not better.

Am feeling super-inspired to do stretching now, and may even get around to cleaning the bathroom, just so I don't have to do it on Tuesday.

How's everyone else going?

Hi Gail,

I do live alone, but I think it must be school holidays somewhere because there was a G-rated movie on at 6.30 last night. It wasn't very good, though - I ended up going off to do other things.

What colour is your hair now?
