You See I Have This Condition…

…and it’s called “fibromyalgia”….

No one knows what it is, where it comes from, or what causes it.

All we know is that this condition causes widespread pain.   No, that’s not correct…I mean PAIN!!!!!!!!!!!! 

It’s pervasive, it’s everywhere.

I liken the pain to what you feel like as you are catching the flu..only without the fever, most of the time – though fever is an uncommon symptom, and one I often experience.

Breathing is painful, eating hurts, everything hurts.

Oh! And the exhaustion…like…like slogging through wet sand.

Wet sand, coated in molasses.

Up to your ears.

It’s awful, but the worst of it all is what’s known as “fibro-fog”.  You literally think you are losing your mind.  You can’t remember things..like did I eat?  Where are my keys?  Where’d I put the cat?  Why is the cat in the refrigerator and the keys in the cat food?  You know, stuff like that.

Which brings me to this post.

And the fact that I meant to post yesterday, but didn’t.

Dontchawannaknowwhy?

Yeah, because I couldn’t remember the name of my own web page.

That’s right.

I sat staring at my computer, unable to remember the name, and after attempting many times and getting the “Page Not Found” error, I figured my account had been deleted.

And then, yesterday morning, the “fog” began to clear from the latest (and worst to date) fibro-flare and I remembered.

Which is why I’m just now posting again.

You’d think I’d write it down, add it to Favorites, or something right?

Well, I will.  Now.
