Thoughts About Fibromyalgia

Fibro has this way of invading every aspect of one's life.  I have over time learned to manage my life around my Fibro but even still some days I get so frustrated that I have to live my life as I do.  I so want to be able to jump up, get dressed and spend the day doing normal stuff.  I want to go out shopping during the day, go to lunch with friends and just feel normal.  Instead everyday when I wake up there is a process to get to the point where I can actually interact with the world.   If I do rush it and jump out there, I physically get sick and usually end of vomiting.  I know that is gross but it is part of my life.  I never tell anyone what I had to go through just to get out of the house, it is to embarrassing.  So everyday I wake up and it takes me several hours to "pull myself together".   I have to start taking meds. at 6 am and then rest and take more meds. and inch my way out of bed.  If it is very sunny I simply can not tolerate the light.  If it is hot, I can not tolerate that either.  If I smell anything it turns my stomach.  If there is a loud noise, that too makes me sick.  If someone asked anything of me, I am unable to help them out.  It is very crippling. I love my blog because it is a place where I can share the "good" things in my life but I can't tell my story without talking about my Fibro.  My Fibro is a big part of me and who I am and how I live.   I am blessed in so many ways and I know that there are so many things worse than Fibro.   Still I long for the person I use to be when I wasn't so tired, things didn't make me so sick, I could think clearly and I had a so much to give.   I am still a very giving person but I am limited. I am limited by my Fibro, it colors my world and some days I simply wish it would just go away and I could have me back, the way I use to be.

I miss the world.....
I use to know, Fibro changed my life..

See you soon with a new pink tutu skirt I made from one of my daughter's dresses.  
I love to recycle....

  1. I am so sorry you go through that in the morning. I too go through that. Mornings are not my friend which makes it impossible for me to work because I feel so sick in the morning. The earlier I wake up the worse it is. I get dizzy and nauseous and so many other yucky things happen. I have to lay in bed for a little actually not a little almost a full hour before I can fully get up! It's horrible, so I feel your struggle as I personally go through it too. You are not alone..

    Hugs xoxo

I have really good days and I have really bad days but mornings are always a struggle. I ma currently having a flair up and it is so hard to deal with the pain. Thank you for sharing and for letting me know I am not alone. Gentle hugs, Beverly
