cryptic wasn't one of my goals

So that last post didn't quite carry through as intended. I missed on explaining the middle step.

It's an unfortunately real commentary on how fast fibro symptoms can change. At this point, I'm caught in a spiral that usually leads to an ER trip -- pain levels get too high, I start to throw up from pain, I can't keep my maintenance meds down, I get dehydrated, and then I end up in the ER getting an IV for fluids and to get meds back in my system quickly.

It's frustrating to go from the "real life" goals to the "I'm a patient" goals in the span of an hour or two. I feel like I'm living a double life. I don't need a reminder that my body has a hitch in its functioning. I get that every day. But I get the swift kick version of a reminder multiple times a year anyway. Today's one of those days.

  1. So sorry you are unable to figure out a way to manage all of this on a somewhat steady basis. ((HUGS)) I just hate these diseases. And I hate even more how even doctors came always come up with even a fix for some of us.

  2. Sorry to hear you're in a downward spiral. Every time I make my list of things to do, there's a mental "or not" at the end of each item.

    HUGS! Please let me know if you need anything - I'll be in your area tomorrow.
