Hi - haven't posted in a while. I had a difficult time over the holidays, mostly panicking about
the future. I was fired from my last job due to fogginess, and while I was lucky enough to get unemployment insurance benefits, all i could think of was "What am I supposed to fo when they run out this July??" I luckily found that after a few months of adjusting to fibro life that I could manage daily life with two little kids constantly needing me, but just barely. I couldn't figure out how I was going to squeeze in a forty hour work week. I am thankful to report that my best friend and I are going into business together. We will be able to earn a living with about
half the hours, as photographers. We have done the market research, and it appears that we will be successful! So good on that front. Ihave had a hard time this past week, must be relapsing. I am starting to feel more pain again, mostly head/neck/upper back/shoulders. It's not terrible - I think I am lucky in the pain department - but it nags. Well the headaches are killer. But over all lucky that the other pain is not worse. Have been too tired lately. Waking up in the middle of the night, tired all day. Having trouble keeping myself the right temperature. Unlike most of you, I am just as sensitive to heat as I am to cold. I can't bundle up against the chill, because as soon as my body hits room temp I start sweating, and get hot chills. My feet are the worst - the are cold, so I put on slippers, only to take them off two minutes later when they get sweaty, only to have them go too cold again! I learn to laugh about
it! I have been having trouble in the hubby dept. It seems he doesn't put a lot of weight on the fibro dx. He gives me weird looks every time I take a pill, shrugs off my complaints, say so what else is new, when I say anything about
being tired. I think he shuold log in here and read what we go through, but he has no interest in learning.
So that is where I am at. I don't think I have said anything particularly interesting, and maybe people will read this and say so what. But I just felt that somewhere, someone aside from my mom must care how I feel. It sure isn't my husband!
