Fatigue Monster

October 5, 2012

The BIG, BAD, Fatigue Monster has me again.  After having injections in my hip I got a virus that made me so sick for 4 days, then the fatigue monster took over and I can’t seem to shake it.  It has been a week since I first got sick with the virus and I am still so fatigued that I can barely get up much less STAY UP all day.  I have been sleeping 12 to 16 hours at a time and then taking a nap during the day as well.  I told my husband that I am so ready to get back to my “normal sick”.  With my chronic illness I am in constant pain and fatigue with numerous other symptoms and when I get an illness on top of that it is almost more than I can take.  I am even ready to get back to my “normal sick”.  I told my husband that it is weird to want to get back to ONLY being chronically ill.  Does that mean that I am ok with it or have accepted being chronically ill??  NO!!!  I still don’t like it one bit and I still haven’t accepted it, but it is what I am used to since I have been chronically ill with Severe Fibromyalgia for over 10 years now.  All I can say is the Fatigue Monster better watch out and go away soon or I will have my friends, family, and my fibro friends kick his butt!!

My Blessing Today

October 1, 2012

Blessings come in all shapes and sizes.  I have been going through a rough time with my Fibromyalgia and hip pain lately.  I was sick all weekend and I am even sicker today.  In addition to the Fibro, I am sick to my stomach, dizzy, hot/cold, restless legs, raynauds is flaring up, you name it.  BUT our boys went to visit my parents this last weekend and they brought back some goodies that I just opened.  What a blessing!  Home canned green beans, pickles, peppers, tomatoes, salsa, relish, pickled okra, etc.  I will enjoy all of that later.  I also had a package that was full of salt and pepper shakers.  I mentioned to my Mom that I started collecting them so her and Dad sent a bunch and also my sweet Aunt sent me some as well.  My blessings in life outweigh my trials and I thank God for that.

What are your blessings today??
