What a great question! I've never really thought about
Just a guess, but I think a flare can knock us down in many ways, and yes--I think we could be more emotionally vulnerable during a flare.
Elsewhere on this forum, I told about
a recent unpleasant experience with sibs that I won't detail here. Since that happened, especially a day or two ago, I have been in a flare (neck/back) and emotionally, I felt very upset and disappointed with my sibs, to the point of contacting them and chewing them out for the misery they caused.
Because I know it won't do any good, though, I didn't follow through. But--yes--I did find that not only that ugly incident bothered me, but several other issues going on in my life.
I've been pushing myself too much, too, but yesterday I found myself sort of wandering aimlessly, unable to get anything done except the very basics. I thought about it last night, and I wonder if I'm not in 'shock' from what transpired recently. I was just appalled by the way I had been treated, and I didn't deserve it at all. Funny how the guilty party so often gets off scott-free, while the innocent pay the price. That's just wrong.
It's kind of a frustrating feeling, because I'm trying to get several things accomplished, and not only is my fibro in the way, but my emotions are all over the map; I feel blackmailed, for one thing.
The good news is that today does seem somewhat better so far, though. I guess time does heal! I hope the rest of the day it continues to improve and I can start feeling more like myself.
So, I think it's true. Robin, I'll pray that your doctor visits all go well. You sound like you have an exceptional attitude! God bless you and hugs. Enjoy this beautiful day.
