Hi all from a very very cold belfast brrrrrrr
Just got back from a weekend away to celebrate my friends birthday. We made the plans in the summer when the weather was milder and my pains at a manageable level. But as the event loomed true to form with this blasted condition I was in the grip of a flare up felt awful pain at a 10+ and exhaustion all consuming. Too add to that ive recently developed spasms in my neck which required a hospital visit, xrays, a neck brace and more meds. As you can imagin I was in two minds about going right up to the last min.
An hour before we were ment to meet to catch a train I finally decided to pack a bag nd go. I wanted to, at least for 1 wknd, pretend I was the fun loving sociable wee person I used to be before fibro stole away parts of my life. So I went had a blast, ate out, drank champagne, danced like no one was watching laughed and acted silly and felt for a weekend young and care free.
Today im paying the piper in spades!!! I ache all over ouch ouch ouch but ive a smile on my face a mile wide. It was amazing to be with my best friends we been friends now for 30 yrs and it was so much fun to laugh and share old memories and make new oneS.
So fibro do your worse cuz im gonna fight each pain wiv a chuckle a smile and a memory and the certainty that my friends will still be there 30 yrs from now if god spares us and hopefully we will still be causing mayhem together in the old folks home. Xxx
Wishing you all a happy day
