I am a bit of an anomaly. I wake feeling rested(when I sleep) and am ok for the first half hour. Then it hits me like an avalanche. I start aching all over, cannot move without knocking something over or spilling something. Walk like a zoombie. It lasts an hour or so till my pain med and muscle relaxer kick in. Then because of my anti-depressant, after the pain stops I want to get going. Do something. I have to get everything done before 2 PM, that's when I crash, slam bang, cannot move. So i lie down. Many days i don't get up again until I have to use BR or eat, then I do minimum and go lie down again. Most days, during flares, my life is spent lying in bed from mid-afternoon until next day. Occasionally, I can come out to cook supper or work on computer, or whatever, for a bit. i cannot do social functions. no evenings out. It takes all I have to attend to the basics.
