Frequent Nausea??

November 1, 2012

I am having a “fatigue monster” kind of day.  It is noon and I am just able to crawl out of bed.  My body started hurting so much that I had to get up for a while.  I am also sick to my stomach so I am making rice to eat for lunch.  My son, Tyler, brought me breakfast in bed this morning so I could take my medicine (Carnation Instant Breakfast was all I could get down) .  I have nausea frequently does anyone else have this problem?

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!!

I’m a Chronic Illness Warrior!!

September 12, 2012

Living a life of chronic illness can be really draining and it steals a lot of our lives.  I try to stay positive and push myself to do as much as I can.  Somedays my body just feels like staying in bed.  I feel like I have the flu, with fatigue, and severe pain.  I try to get up and do something – ANYTHING – to get out of bed.  I find this gives me a little energy, makes me feel better mentally, and I can help around the house as well.  Sometimes I water my flowers, sometimes “play in my flowerbed”, do a little housework, visit my Mother-in-Law, or have lunch with a friend.  I haven’t been able to get out and shop recently due to my back and hip issues, so I feel a little home bound.  Let’s pray that we all have less pain and extra energy!!  Blessings!

The FATIGUE Monster has Attacked

July 20, 2012

Fatigue Monster

I went to bed early and was woken by my Mother-in-law calling or I don’t think I would be up now.  I am so fatigued I will be lying around and sleeping all day.  I slept 12 hours last night!  My record is:  I slept 23 hours one day about a year ago.  It was really weird to wake up and realize that I had missed a whole day.

Today I am walking around like a zombie from one of those zombie movies that I see advertised but never watch.  So just wanted you to know that the FATIGUE MONSTER got me last night and is determined to keep hold of me so far.  I may just punch him in the nose!!  🙂
