Fibro Flare

Depression

My fibromyalgia has been in a flare since the temperature dropped rapidly in Vegas. I haven’t stopped hurting since the temperature went back to more reasonable fall temperatures.

Between the pain and fatigue, I have to force myself out of bed and throw in good old depression and I wonder why I bother. But I do because my husband and pets rely on me and you all are here to cheer me on.

I have been tracking my sleep and I rarely get any REM sleep anymore, no wonder I am such a hot mess. Sleep has always eluded me, but usually I get a bit of REM. I think the Fibromyalgia flare is interfering with it.

I am trying to go about my daily routine, but it’s getting more difficult to make myself meditate, exercise and even walk the dogs. I need to push myself because I am trying to lose weight for me and I was feeling better. Unfortunately, Fibromyalgia fools you into thinking you are sick. I feel sick and tired. I feel like I am getting the flu without actually getting it. My fibromyalgia has been in a flare since the temperature dropped rapidly in Vegas.

I feel sick and tired, but I can’t sleep. Nor does medication help the flu like symptoms. I am constantly achy and currently I feel like a hot rod has been forced through one shoulder to the other. It’s excruciating.

My muscles are tense unless I consciously make an effort to relax them, so I am constantly doing relaxation exercises I learned in college. Meditation, yoga and relaxation all play a role in my daily life. Hopefully, they will help me get this current flare under control.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
