I have Fibromyaliga. Google it. It's a pain thing, and it comes and goes, but at the moment, girl, it's coming. I'm showing you my super-awesome outfit in case you too have Fibromyalgia; did you know that every single little bit of pressure from waistbands and elastic can make things 100 times worse?
Today, for example, I was wearing a jacket to begin with. It looked smokin'. I mean, it was great. But a little bit too small... and the pressure around my upper arms and across my back made everything more bad. So I'm just showing you this, because there are no waistbands. This is the loosest combination I could come up with. Unfortunately, society dictates that I wear a bra to hide the fact that my boobs are gloriously flappy.... which means I always a knot of pain in that part of my spine - I can feel it with my fingers - and always will.
The only other stuff that happened today involved me being short-tempered, grumpy, angry and irrational with my 3 sweet children. Sorry babies....
Tomorrow I will take lots and lots of supermarket painkillers and try and be nicer, I promise!
Fibromyalgia: Fibromyalgia (FM or FMS) is characterised by chronic widespread pain and allodynia (a heightened and painful response to pressure).Its exact cause is unknown but is believed to involve psychological, genetic, neurobiological and environmental factors. Fibromyalgia symptoms are not restricted to pain, leading to the use of the alternative term fibromyalgia syndrome for the condition. Other symptoms include debilitating fatigue, sleep disturbance, and joint stiffness.
