Checking in

It's been a while since I've posted.  It's been a combination of feeling like I've been hit with a Mack truck or being busy trying to catch up from being run down by said truck.  I was getting back to feeling like I'd been run over with a Volkswagen until the rain and cooler weather hit yesterday.  Oh my!!  When it hit it was quick and viscous. My pain went from my normal Level 5 to Level 9 in about 15 minutes. I was out running an errand and thought I was going to have to call a friend that lived close to where I was and see if I could veg on her couch until Bill got off work and could come pick me up.  I decided that I wanted my own bed and made it home driving slowly and on the back road.  Went to bed and only slept about 4 hours but it was enough to keep me up all night.  I've been up since about 8:00pm Wednesday night with the exception of about 2 hours this afternoon.  I'm headed to bed now to hopeful sleep more than 2 hours. 

Check out Apple Creek Cove, my blog where I'm going to attempt to write about ways that I've found to be able to maintain a semi normal level of domestic bliss in spite of my Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Peripheral Neuropathy, Peripheral Lymphedema, Sjogren's Syndrome, Arthritis, four herniated discs, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, short term memory loss, sleep apnea and depression.  (I need to check my doc's notes because I feel like I'm leaving something out of my collection of diagnoses.)

As I head off to be at 4:13AM, here's my final thought for Thursday:


  1. Everyone is talking about this mack truck and I don't want to keep on truckin' (excuse the pun) I woke up this morning and felt flattened and could hardly move. YUK, and no rhyme or reason to it as had a pretty easy day yesterday??

  2. Sorry to hear you are feeling poorly; glad you are continuing to write.

  3. I understand how you feel, there are days that I feel that I have been hit by a mack truck. I am on the same journey, I hope that we see a change as the research continues. As well as the post that come from the different blogs.
