I'm back!

So, you may have noticed that I haven't blogged in over a week. This isn't like me, I usually blog most weekdays and visit as many blogs as I can. Unfortunately, I had a flare last week.

Flares are where most of my fibromyalgia symptoms kick-in together. I get pain in my limbs, cognitive function is slower and I can get visual disturbances and migraine. Energy levels are usually low. When this happens, I can usually get on with life but at a slower pace than normal. Unfortunately, I'm in Super-Flare! I had two migraines last week, and the pain was so bad last night, that even with heavy duty painkillers it looked like I needed to go to hospital.

My number one priority was minding my foster daughter, and that's what I did. She didn't even know I was sick, and I'm proud of that. (She left yesterday) But it did mean a lack of posts, and that I haven't checked up on my online friends. I'm really sorry. But as you can tell from the repeated phrases in one short blog post (unfortunately, last week, etc) I'm not myself.

Normal service will be resumed shortly :)

  3. Glad you are feeling better. I had a migraine once, and it sent me home from work to hug the toilet and my pillow. You must be one tough cookie if you can deal with that and still keep your life in order. Sláinte!

  6. I hope the flare is on its downside for you! I did notice you hadn't posted but I figured you were just busy with the young lady who was staying with you. I am glad you were able to take care of her and yourself while you were in the super flare! They are awful! I know!!! I hope this week is so much better for you!
