Which part/parts of you hurt today? Do you ever feel like a living human version of Pin The Tail On The Donkey? Is this new pain today a fibro thingy or something else?
I have the usual 'background' headache, a relatively new symptom for me, as in I only started with this one since earlier this year.
I have regular eye checks due to a tumor in my left iris, so I know I don't need an eye test. That sounds pretty scarey I guess but it's not, the tumor was zapped by radiation in the same year it became active, and has not grown again since. Fingers crossed, (not literally as they'll cramp), it won't, ever again.
The flip side, the positive eye bit, is having some beautiful frames for my spectacle lenses, hand painted in the jewelled colours of reds, purples and blues, designed by an artist named Ronit Furst, a birthday gift from my lovely sisters My old metal frames made my face itch so much I wanted to peel the skin off!
I can't control my body temperature either, I keep melting.
My throat and mouth are sore, not like in a cold but more in as if I have been shouting hard for a few days. My voice keeps going croaky and hoarse, I sound like my voice is breaking. I know it's not because I'm a 51yr old female. I'll just have to dose up on honey
My neck muscles ache and my left shoulder muscles feel tight and knotted, everything seems to be creaking and grinding, as if I've shrunk my muscles in the bath. My nose is peppery, I wish I could sneeze.
My lower back threatened to flare up a few strides into my walking the hound, but I kept at it and, for once, I beat the fibro and the pain died down again.
We missed the rain, the hound had a field day sniffing everything and even tried to kick up his arthritic heels!
I thought about joining him but didn't wish to push my luck, so focused on enjoying the sun's warmth and changing autumn leaves instead.
I think I'll have some icecream with honey.
A good day.
Hope yours is too:)x
