Fibromyalgia is a Royal Pain!
Not going to even try to sugar coat it... it's been a rough few days. I tried to get myself back on a "normal people" sleep schedule and completely forgot how sleep medications affect me. They leave me even groggier and more brain fogged than normal. That left Monday as a complete wasteland with me not being able to do much at all. I only slept about 1 1/2 hours Monday night into Tuesday morning.
Heather and the boys came to pick me up Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. to take me to the eye doctor, which was a huge blessing! Even before they dilated my eyes, a migraine came on fast and furious. Luckily I had some pain meds with me and they quickly got me a glass of water to take my meds and did my eye exam before things could get worse. Thankfully my eyes are healthy and we think we solved the mystery of why they were having problems...dry eyes. I now have eye drops for that. We stopped on the way home and I bought Heather and the boys donuts as a thank you and then the boys picked blackberries here before they headed back home. I took a short 2 hour nap in the afternoon and still felt like crap.
Tuesday evening found me still hurting, so we had leftovers for dinner and I headed to bed around 9 p.m.. I COULD NOT SLEEP! I bounced around from bed to bed to recliner back to bed and finally fell asleep around 4:30 a.m. and then headed back to my bed (I fell asleep in the guest bed) around 7 a.m. and slept until about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Headache still there and I ached all over. I forced myself to get some laundry going, collapsed in my recliner, finally got something to eat then switched out laundry, collapsed again in the recliner and then repeat the do something in the garden then collapse several more times. I also finally took more pain meds for my headache, but they do nothing for the body aches.
I am really hoping that I can get a few more things done before Jeff gets home later and I am praying that the neighborhood kids who are screaming at the top of their lungs quiet down soon. It seems to me that they are just thrown outside with no supervision based on what I hear coming out of their mouths. I am really hoping that once school starts that at least some of them are in school for the day...there is a large group and I am not sure if they are running a daycare or not. No matter what is going on though, I sure wish that the kids were more closely supervised and NOT allowed to yell and scream at the top of their lungs for hours on end. UGH!
