I try not to talk about my Fibromyalgia much, since I don’t want to even think about it. I’ve always been the type to ignore any illness, since if I ignore it hopefully it will go away. However, I do realize that Fibromyalgia won’t magically go away, every time I get a cold, or a sinus issue, I have to deal with the fact that I’ve got no immune system, and no reserves to help fight a sickness.
This week was supposed to have been a great start to the New Year. I was going to really get going with my writing and studying. Instead I’ve spent most of it lying on the couch drinking tea and sleeping. I didn’t even get much reading done. That’s how I knew I was really sick, since I can always manage to read. However, I woke up today and decided that I’d had enough. In the past I’ve been able to just keep on going, but ever since I’ve gotten a little older, I seem to have lost that ability. Why can a simple sinus issue lay me out flat? And, most importantly why am I letting it? So, my new challenge is to do what I can every day. Today I managed to check my email and write this. I’ll make dinner tonight, but in between, I’ll be on the couch with my tea, trying to recover. Being sick sucks!
