I’m back 🙂
A couple of days go by without blogging, and I feel like I’ve been away forever. This has most definitely become one of my comfort zones!
The last couple of days have been extremely challenging in regards to pain. In addition to the symptoms from FM, I’ve been suffering increasingly more frequent and longer bouts of pelvic spasm. This has been enough to make me lose my grip a few times in the last 48 hours. Pain really has a way of bringing out the worst in me emotionally, which is another reason I held back from posting. I didn’t want to write a post fueled by anger or through the blur of my tears.
Today has been more manageable, but I know that it won’t take much to throw me over the edge. I feel like I’m walking on eggshells around MYSELF, not to set off the pain and spasm alarms to the point that they are deafening again. I decided that today I would just be gentle on myself, and even managed to squeeze a nap in, early this afternoon.
My nephew and brother-in-law are in town this weekend, for a hockey tournament. My family and I are SO excited to see him play this evening. It is really important to me, that I be able go and support my favorite hockey player ever 😉 The kids are all very excited to see each other. They live quite far away, so we usually don’t get to see each other more than once a year or so. I’m looking forward to it, and am willing to accept the consequences that are likely to come, from sitting in an arena for a couple of hours 😉 An opportunity for a great family experience is worth that price to me 🙂
What are you doing this Good Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
Most importantly, how have YOU been doing?
I hope that in some way, you are being gentle with yourself too today.
