It was 8 days ago and as far as "rows" go, it was EPIC! For some very good reasons (none of which I can recall at the moment) I went completely and totally, “nuclear-ballistic." I was screaming, crying, yelling and out of my mind in an uncontrollable rage.
After demanding that I be taken home; I spent the next 18 hours in bed, either sleeping, thinking or plotting my diabolical revenge. However, with the new day came sunshine, unicorns and reconciliation.
All’s well that ends well, right?
Except it didn’t end well!
This whole past week I have felt like CRAP!
Last week’s bout has had me "down for the count," with the following complaints; extreme fatigue, on/off headaches, jaw joint pain, achy shoulders, hand cramps, heavy arms and legs, increased tinnitus, breathlessness, pain in my right hip, sleeplessness, loss of appetite, brain fog, dry cough, couch potato syndrome, lethargy, nondescript flu like feeling and general feelings of depression and malaise.
Is this a dreaded F_L_A_R_E_? Or is it just a fluke?
Is it possible that an intense, emotional upset can really provoke an indisputable, full fledged flare? Or, was the flare preordained and “it” caused physiological changes in me, that made me lose my mind and go into an emotional, nuclear meltdown? Maybe it’s all just a coincidence? ...but I don’t believe in coincidence, so it can't be that.
In any case, WHAT DO I DO???
Do I… wait it out, increase my meds, go back in time and change the past, hope it all just goes away, seek professional help?
Any help or advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated…
